Fire On Dark Water, a novel by Wendy K. Perriman, is a tale of treachery, debauchery, passion, and danger. Lola, the main character, finds herself in a life of piracy and corruption. She is sold many times over to men as a slave which leads to her learning more about herself than she ever thought possible.
While this book is interesting, well-written, and certainly would appeal to a certain audience, I was not said audience. There are many descriptive rape scenes, which struck a sensitive note with me and was not something I expected so many times. For this reason, I would definitely put a warning label on it for young readers and anyone who is sensitive to rape. If you are a fan of pirates and a lot of angst, you will likely love this book.
Fire On Dark Water can be found at most major retailers and retails for $15.00 in paperback.
