Review: The Pirate’s Wish

The Pirate's Wish
The Pirate’s Wish by Cassandra Rose Clarke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Pirate’s Wish is the sequel to The Assassin’s Curse and it picked up the story pretty much where it left off. I really enjoyed The Assassin’s Curse that I couldn’t believe it when I actually reached the end of the book, it just felt too short (note: it’s an average sized book). This sequel and final book did not disappoint. In fact, it has truly superseded the first book. A fantastical adventure filled with magic, battles, pirates, princess, and of course, true love.


This story is jam-packed with action, twists and turns that it’s really UN-put-down-able. I really like this world; magical, exotic and off-worldly all blended together. There was an excellent mix of characters; a broody assassin, a young girl keen on achieving her dreams in a world of men, quirky magical creatures, and lots of pirates. There were adventures, romance, humour, actions – what more could one ask for in a book!?

After The Assassin’s Curse, though, it felt like the story was slightly rushed. It felt like it has a different pace and it has numerous things stuffed in similar number of pages. I’ve to confess that after reading this book, I actually thought that it would’ve been better being published as one book! I’ve just read though that it was originally one big book – I would like that ONE please 

If you think The Assassin’s Curse is good, The Pirate’s Wish is your wish comes true…
