Dread Pirate Arcanist by Shami Stovall is a YA Fantasy adventure out now!
“While protecting the newborn griffins on the Isle of Landin, Volke Savan and his adopted sister, Illia, run afoul of the Dread Pirate Calisto, the same cutthroat who carved out Illia’s right eye. As a master manticore arcanist, Calisto’s strength and brutality are unrivaled. When Illia suggests they bring him to justice, Volke wonders if they’ll have what it takes to fight the corsairs on the high seas.
A fast-paced flintlock fantasy for those who enjoy How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell, Unsouled (Cradle Series) by Will Wight, and Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan.”
Get ready for an action-packed story filled with adventure, magical creatures, and their survival.
I would recommend reading the first book before diving into this one. You’ll love the addition of the background and character development.
If you love stories with tons of unique creatures, you will love this world. Every page seems to have a new one popping up, and its was so fun to get to watch the characters interact with them.
And if you love epic pirates, this is also the book you want! The writing style really encompasses them, creating a one-of-a-kind story that will take you by storm!
A 4 out of 5 star read for me! The ending was a whirlwind of action, and I’d be excited too see more from this world!

How I Read It: eARC from Pump Up Your Book
*Disclaimer: I requested a free copy of this book from Pump Up Your Book in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced I any way.*
“Shami Stovall grew up in California’s central valley with a single mother and little brother. Despite no one in her family earning a degree higher than a GED, she put herself through college (earning a BA in History), and then continued on to law school where she obtained her Juris Doctorate.
As a child, Stovall’s favorite novel was Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell. The adventure on a deserted island opened her mind to ideas and realities she had never given thought before—and it was at that moment Stovall realized story telling (specifically fiction) became her passion. Anything that told a story, be it a movie, book, video game or comic, she had to experience. Now, as a professor and author, Stovall wants to add her voice to the myriad of stories in the world and she hopes you enjoy.”
