This could have been so much than it was The premise is lovely and the prose is readable so why then did I fail to connect with the characters The protagonist is very flat one dimensional even and her actions and thoughts often fail to have a sense of process and come out absolute and without any sense of internal conflict For instance the magic box she is given by her mother A normal person would show some curiousity spend some time trying to open the box but she doesn't In fact she throws it into the ocean without knowing that it would follow her it does but she didn't know that when she threw it The other characters are flatter than she is The romance is sudden and forced The whole business of the dead husband's ghost hanging around is unsettling The fact that she's the only female character of any importance was what made me throw up my hands and call it a day In fact she's the only female character except for some transitory characters who make brief appearances Maybe other people will like it It certainly wasn't my cup of tea

Winterwood Rowankind #1Le Rossalinde Tremayne is satisfied with her life as a cross dressing privateer captain on the high seas But a bitter deathbed visit to her estranged mother changes her life completely when she inherits a magical winterwood box Now not only is she confronted with a newly discovered brother and an annoyingly handsome wolf shapesh. I think it was the cover that got me Who wouldn't want to be a dashing young woman dressed for piracy I like a good historic fantasy and the Golden Age of Piracy certainly has a lot going for it in the action department The idea of a woman who was old enough to be married who is an illicit witch with a ghost husband to boot sounds like fun My first disappointment was that although Ross our heroine is indeed a widow she still is barely over twenty I know that young heroines are the standard but would love a slightly mature protagonist in part because the young heroines spend lots of time struggling mightily against the demands of the plot in order to appear feisty And that is certainly the case with this book Ross doesn't want to do almost anything she must do for the first part of the book until I gave up but is pushed chased and bullied into everything The other thing I noticed was the plot seams showed As a gamer you learn to recognize the informational encounter the fight scene the chase scene That's what the first part of the book felt like a fightchase scene then information for Ross then flightchase Really there's nothing especially wrong with the book; I just got bored because in the end nothing made it special enough for me to keep reading Those with patience may enjoy it
