3 Unique Storylines. Over 50 Possible Endings. Just one question... Will YOU Endure Treachery and Survival on the High Seas?
Set in the Golden Age of Piracy, MAROONED is your chance to climb aboard a wooden ship and set sail in a swashbuckling adventure that will pit you against pirates & mutineers, real-life deserted island survival scenarios, and naval battles as one sovereign wars against the crown across the sea.
Plot: This book has three storylines and more than 50 endings. Does the reader, as a character, wish to survive or die? The choices are quite endless, but the plot itself is a bit thin. Some of the segments may be used in more than one story.
Prose/Style: The writing is fluid, with occasional grammatical errors that would be alleviated by a light proofread. The use of archaic and current seafaring terms helps put the reader into the scene.
Originality: Certainly, this is extremely clever and quite a feat in the way the endings and beginnings are organized.
Character Development: While the characters are colorful, they are somewhat stereotypical of ship's captains and mates and of pirates. They partake in some bawdy activities and sometimes speak coarsely. They are quite one-dimensional, and the reader doesn't get to know them intimately.
