Book Review: Cutlass and Musket, Tales of Piratical Skullduggery

Cutlass and Musket, Tales of Piratical SkullduggeryCutlass and Musket, Tales of Piratical Skullduggery by Jessica A. Weiss

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Welp… I have to be honest here, right? Even though I have a story (and a damned good one if I do say so myself) in this book, I really wasn’t all that impressed with the anthology. While some stories were good and held my interest (and that shouldnt be hard since I LOVE PIRATES), for the most part, the stories read pretty flat to me.

I will try to go through and select the stories I really enjoyed — like a winners and losers type of thing, but at this point I have downgraded my rating from a 4 to a 3. I mean I can’t dislike a book that contains something I wrote…

  1. I've read the first two so far, and I'm working my way through. I enjoyed the 1st story, but the 2nd didn't hold my attention as well. I'll be reading on though because I have to get to yours ;o)

  2. I agree with that myself. I enjoyed the first, though it was a bit too reminiscent of the Pirates movie for me, down to the vodoo lady and the Kraken — but at least it was entertaining. I didn't really get into the second, though it wasnt glaringly bad — just not enough to suck me into it.

    Good thing I come before the long novella stuck in the middle 😛
