Kemosha of the Caribbean

We rated this book:


Cooking and looking out for her brother as a slave on a plantation is the only thing Kemosha has ever known until a new man comes wanting a pretty girl to work in his tavern. But when a man assaults her, she runs away. Fearing for her life, Kemosha sets sail with a notorious privateer by the name of Captain Morgan. If all goes according to plan, when she returns to her home she’ll have enough bounty to free her family and sweep them away to a life under no one’s control. If she returns with her life, that is.

Kemosha spends the first few chapters as a slave then runs away to earn her freedom and the freedom of her family and even though she was sheltered from many things, she felt oddly innocent of what she was wanted for at the tavern. Many of the characters speak with an accent, giving them their own way of speaking. The problem is that it makes the dialog clunky and disrupts the flow of the story. The characters themselves I found boring. They’re different on the surface, but only enough to tell them apart.
