The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A mesmerizing adventure that brings pirate tales onto a whole new level. The Story of Saffron Adams who lives knowing everything about her former lives, as 100 Dogs and as famous Pirate Emer Morisey is emotional and realistic though it is based on a myth.
It is really good researched and takes the reader into a new world full of great dangers, where you can't tell right from wrong.
You empathize with poor Emer while she struggles to find a way in life and her beloved Seanie. It is a tale about love that is strong enough to survive everything and about fear overtaking your brain. It shows how hope and self esteem can get you through everything.
I personally liked Emers part of the Story more than Saffrons, though Heather Brewer, author of "The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod", was right when she sad "...I'd follow Saffron into the briny deep"
I would follow Saffron everywhere, too, just to find out wich adventure comes next. And to help her find the treasures she deserves.
The book gets you thinking. Questioning your life and if your happy in it or just bored. I really enjoyed the Dog Facts, because they show you a uncomplicated way of seeing life. Maybe that is the better way :)
A wonderful story for everyone, not just for pirate lovers. A book that makes you want to sail the seven oceans.
And I definitely adore the cover.
I wish you all a great week full with wonderful adventures, on paper and off paper :)
