If you are looking for robust storytelling and world building then this is the book for you Extra points for lots of strong women characters This story is about a woman named Compass Rose who was born with the gift of direction The book starts off with her going about her days on the North Star until her Admiral assigns her to leave on a secret mission to navigate for a mercenary captain named Miranda I loved the setting of a future world where the affects of global warming have forced people to the oceans to survive Cities are underwater There are dead zones of hot soupy water Boats have to sub deep in order to avoid massive storms that plague the earth Not only was the setting fantastic but all of the characters were carefully crafted with uniue characteristics appearances and personalities A lot of times author throw characters in just to help further plot Not here Everyone had a backstory was deeply entangled with our two main characters and had you caring for them Even when they were behaving badly The entire thing was one adventure after another Battling the seas fighting the opposition facing hunger trying to gain acceptance underwater fishing mishaps infiltrating occupied zones caging giant suids staying alive etc I was completely into this story and did not want to stop readingThankfully this book was pretty hefty in length to keep the enjoyment lingering I'm used to uick pure romance reads If those books are long I find myself getting bored at parts This one kept me flipping pages with pure excitement for what was coming next There is a bit of a love story in this Rose becomes a enad with her new mercenary captain Miranda It is a forbidden attraction that is formed by anger frustration and physiue Rose fights against her feelings because there is no way she could get involved with someone who has killed stolen and generally has been a bad human being in the past Not to mention that hooking up with your boss must be against the rules I loved the tension between the two of the that never dwindles throughout the entirety of the bookThroughout the book you learn and about these characters and what makes them who they are today I enjoyed the slow discovery and how it impacts the decisions that have to be made in later chapters providing the small dose of angst that I love reading Eventually we come to understand why Rose was sent on the mission Who Miranda is and why she chose to work with the Archepelago fleet It was a lot of fun getting thereI'm sorry that I did not read this sooner and I recommend it to anyone who likes to read love stories pirates global warming oceans sparring tension algae blooms and Neptune's balls

kindle Ó Compass Rose â Anna Burke

Compass RoseRose was born facing due north with an inherent perception of cardinal points flowing through her veins Her uncanny sense of direction earns her a coveted place among the Archipelago Fleet elite but it also attracts the attention of Admiral Comita who sends her on a secret mission deep into pirate territory Accompanied by a ragtag crew of mercen Loved loved loved this Dystopian Adventure Pirates 5 stars Even if there had been Miranda😍My initial enthusiastic endorsement should be tempered with a caveat while this book does indeed have all the elements of a good swashbuckling pirate yarn it is also set in an incredibly bleak dystopian future Sadly a future that feels disturbingly like what we're headed for This isn't the usual romanticized pirate tale that we've previously seen depicted in lesfic Its version of life under the high seas is way darker grittier and much realistic The earth that our heroines live in around 500 years from now doesn't even feel like earth any Most of the land is gone Mankind has created artificial 'archipelagos' where pockets of humanity survive and thrive But only if you're the lucky ones allowed on them For everyone else not on the Archipelagos or not under their protection it's a level of subsistence that can only be described as being slightly better than stone age hunter gatherers It's into one of these ragtag drifter colonies that our main protagonist Compass Rose was born lived and would have probably died a harsh premature death if she wasn't plucked out because of what she can do She was born with a singularly uniue talent the ability to navigate by sense an internal built in GPS if you will That doesn't sound too impressive in our world but in hers where almost all earth is covered in murky water and the air is barely breathable it's like being the only one who can see when everyone else is blind or being an empath in a world of sonsales As a result of our tender loving care over the centuries earth's most precious resource it's waters is now choked by toxic gas poison algae and the all indestructible non biodegradable uber ubiuitous plastic Noxious fumes permeate the ocean surface so all of the seafaring actually happens underwater in murky jellyfish infested waters via submarines Being able to navigate that world sight unseen is a secret weapon unto itself Compass Rose serves as navigator on the Archipelago Fleet basically their submarine based navy But trouble in the underwater mines and rampaging pirates force Admiral Comita the fleet commander to lend her precious navigator to a mysterious mercenary gang for a spying mission Mercenaries are just one step up from the out and out pirates Though up close as Rose will soon discover there really isnt much difference And if she thought life as an outcast was hard on the fleet ship it's going to be hell on the rusty tin can she'd been dumped into Even worse The reason they want her on it is because they're literally going into hellor a close approximation of it And Rose is the only one who can take them in undetected The bigger uestion is can she lead them out? With the fate of the world resting on the mission Rose needs all her concentration to work her particular brand of magic But the mysterious and dangerous pirate captain is also very very distracting The book is written from Compass' first person pov So it is also uite a personal journey for her from a shy introverted and rather wimpy outsider to serving alongside and surviving some of the most fearsome pirates in the world That's a huge leap so the author takes care to develop her character properly The supporting cast are eually well drawn Just so I won't miss anything here's the laundry list of everything I love about the book And to avoid sounding repetiti
