My Review

"The Restitution" by MaryLu Tyndall, this last novel to "Legacy of the King's Pirate" is yet another very hard novel to set aside without knowing what the out come of the story will be! In this story there are two new main characters that were minor, but still played a major role in the first two novels, which take action in this novel. Go on an adventure with Lady Isabel Ashton as she sets out to find her illegitimate son, Frederick, who has recently been kidnapped by a pirate who is out to get revenge on Frederick's biological father, Kent. Captain Kent Carlton sets out to find Isabel to win her heart and forgiveness, as he gets word from Richard Sawkins on the information he needs.

Isabel is determined and clings to a hope of someday marrying a nobleman with title and wealth, but when her baby is kidnapped, she slowly is seeing things different that maybe title and wealth is not everything it seems to be. Kent determined to make amends with Isabel, though as he keeps on trying he hears her words to him that slices through his heart like a sword. See how the title of this novel, "The Restitution", plays throughout the whole story through Isabel and Kent that to make things right, they will need to realize God is always in control and He can forgive even the worst of sins. The "Legacy of the King's Pirate" has been my most favorite series to read, and I know I will be reading this series over and over to where it will never get tiring!

My Review

A continuing story takes place in "The Reliance" by MaryLu Tyndall where we last left Charlisse & Captain Merrick.  Both on a mission together in the beginning of the story, soon a huge tragedy takes place separating the two newly married and finally able to spend their life together.  Captain Merrick believing Charlisse, his wife, is dead, he turns his back on the One true God and goes to his old life of piracy.  Charlisse captured by a villainous pirate, soon to escape to then seek out Captain Merrick, her husband, but starts to struggle with her own insecurities.

The capture of Charlisse, she tries to help another lady, Isabel, escape from Kent, while she is struggling to face Captain Merrick when she discovers what he has been up to.  Captain Merrick finally realizing being disgusted with his old way, repents, and struggles to get back on the right track, with shocking news about Charlisse still being alive. As in the in "The Redemption" see how the title, "The Reliance", plays out through this second novel to the "Legacy of the King's Pirate".  Watch how Charlisse's faith grows, where she can only rely on the Lord, and Captain Merrick being dependent on the Lord and leave it in His hands.  "The Reliance" has truly been a hard book to set aside, where I want to know how things are going to turn out in the end.  Definitely going to read this novel again!

My Review

The very first book written by MaryLu Tyndall, "The Redemption", has truly been an on edge must know what is going to happen next in this novel.  Just when I think in a few areas that things are about settled, some other suspense action comes up, and has me eagerly reading to see how the events will turn out.  Read about how Lady Charlisse Bristol runs away from where she was brought up, by going on a voyage in search of her father whom she never knew, but heard so many wonderful stories from her mother.  Though through the process she becomes shipwrecked on a desert island.  To make things more interesting find out how a band of pirates and their fiercely handsome leader, Edmund Merrick, rescues Charlisse from near death.

Charlisse being terrified of Captain Merrick, she is now baffled to discover this man has a faith in God.  Captain Merrick is determined to become a better man or more of a godly man, but he is battling his old weaknesses of women and drink, which are testing him while he helps Charlisse in her journey to search for her father.  A neat twist with this novel, "The Redemption" you'll read throughout seeing the title used in different ways.  See if Charlisse will come to understand about the deliverance from sin and come to know what is salvation, and how Edmund learns more about giving his life to the One and only Creator.  This swashbuckling romance novel will show ye how Charlisse 'nd Captian Merrick go through their journey, something ye don't want to miss!
