Waiting on Wednesday: Blacksouls (Blackhearts #2) by Nicole Castroman

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  My choice this week is a sequel, but one that the author had said she didn't know if she'd be able to publish because the publisher hadn't approved it yet or whatever.  I really enjoyed the first book, Blackhearts, though, and can't wait to read on!  Here's the blurb from Goodreads:


Nicole Castroman brings the dangerous pirate ports of the Caribbean to life in this vibrant sequel to Blackhearts—the reimagined origin story of history’s most infamous pirate, Blackbeard.

Edward “Teach” Drummond is setting sail to the Caribbean as first mate on the most celebrated ship in the British fleet—until he rebels against his captain. Sailing on the same blue waters, Anne barely makes it to the Caribbean, where she hopes to learn more about her ancestry. What she doesn’t expect is a port filled with lawless criminals and danger lurking around every corner.

With the mutinous Teach in chains, Anne must brave the perilous, pirate haven of Nassau in order to save not only Teach, but her new friends on the island. But when Teach is offered a deal—capture a notorious pirate or waste away in the Governor’s dungeons—what he discovers brings him closer and closer to becoming a pirate himself. And further away from Anne who is being held hostage in exchange for Teach’s loyalty to the Governor.

Now Teach must decide if he should risk his own soul to save Anne. Even if that means turning into a ruthless pirate…

Even if that means turning into Blackbeard.


What do you think, does it sound like a fun story to you?  I'm so excited!  Ready to read on in this story.  Now to get another egalley when they're available!  So, what book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

    1. I guess it did well enough, I know after I read the first one I emailed the author and asked about a sequel and at the time she said she hadn't gotten a contract for it. But yay that she did! :-) Thanks for visiting!

  14. I hope you'll get approved for an egalley once they become available.
    I never read a book about pirates, they somehow never appeal to me.

    1. I know, I loved the first one so much! And while this one may be more about pirates, the first one wasn't really, it was about him before he became a pirate. Thanks for visiting!

  15. I am so happy that this sequel exists! I was incredibly disappointed after finishing book one and realizing that nothing was contracted after it. That was over 7 months ago though! :D

    I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it, Lisa!
