New Release Review - The Pirate of Fathoms Deep (Tales of High Court, Book 2) by Megan Derr

The Pirate of Fathoms Deep
Tales of High Court, Book 2
by Megan Derr
Release Date:  July 12, 2016
Genre:  M/M Fantasy Romance


High Commander Lesto Arseni is the most feared man in the Harken Empire. None but the High King dares risk his wrath—and a pirate who once punched him in the middle of the imperial pavilion. A pirate who later snuck away with Lesto to an empty room, touched him in ways far more memorable. And then immediately bolted like a man who'd gotten what he wanted.

Shemal just wants to live a normal life, leave his pirating days behind him and prove that he's respectable now. The last thing he needs is the two idiots who show up wanting his help with the noble they've kidnapped—the very man Shemal had been hoping to prove himself to, the man he hasn't forgotten since Shemal punched him a year and a half ago.

My Review:

I have been looking forward to this second book since reading The High King's Golden Tongue!  Normally I am not a fan of fantasy romance but I fell in love with the Tales of High Court series.  Author Megan Derr has such a wonderful way with words that captivated me from beginning to end.  The Pirate of Fathoms Deep features High Commander Lesto, a dangerous yet very honorable man who found himself enthralled by a pirate who had the spirit to punch him while awaiting his fate for being a captured pirate.  Shemal has been pardoned and is now trying to prove himself worthy of a nobleman like Lesto.

This fascinating tale is full of action and humor that I was unable to put it down and spend time with my family.  Witty dialogue and the fast paced storyline had me eagerly devouring this book.  A little more of a lighter read than the first book but just as well written with wonderful world building.  I highly recommend this book to lovers of all genres of romance and I also encourage new readers to start at book 1, it is not exactly needed to enjoy and understand this story but you will not be disappointed at all if you do as some of its captivating characters do make appearances. 4.5 stars!
