Pacifica

Marin is cosario royalty, a pirate like her father and his father before him. Sailing the ocean to chase adventure is in her blood. But these days no one cares that the island town her people call home is named after her grandfather. They have a new leader, one who promises an end to their hunger and one who thinks that girls are meant for the kitchen or the brothel. Marin knows she's meant for more than that, and with the sudden influx of weapons on the island, and rumors of a pending deal with the enemy oil nation in her wake, she knows a big score to gain the council's favor is the only way to save her people, and herself.Ross lives a life of privilege. As the president's son he wants for nothing, but he longs for a life of adventure. On a dare, he convinces his best friend Adam to sneak out to the Docks, the site of local race riots between the poor Shorlings and the upper class. But when Adam is arrested along with the other Shorlings, and not even the president is willing to find him, Ross finds himself taking matters into his own hands. He journeys back into the Docks, ready to make deals with anyone, even a beautiful pirate, if it means Adam's safe return.When Marin and Ross meet in dangerous Shoreling territory he sees a way to get his friend back and she sees her ticket home. The ransom a presidents son would command could feed her people for years and restore her familys legacy. But somewhere in the middle of the ocean, Marin must decide if her heart can handle handing over the only person who has ever seen her as more than a pirate....

    Same Review Also Posted On My Blog: Dreamy Addictions

    First of all, I never read Kristen Simmon's books but I was very much excited to read Pacifica because it says pirates and sea adventure in a dystopian world. I mean who could resist that? not me. This story was actually inspired from the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. It was an enjoyable read and I really liked the plot and the concept, but it was missing that wow factor that'll leave you in ama

    1. The world-building creates a plot that's really timely and relevant.

    This book shows a world of trash--literally. In this dystopian world, everything we haven't done to save Mother Nature has taken its toll. Global warming went to an extreme; all the icebergs in the world melted; miles and miles of trash make the seas almost inhabitable.

    2. The heroine was strong, fierce, and smart.

    At first, Marin was just your typical, I-need-redemption-so-I-need-to-be-badass heroine. She grew a lot throughout

    ahhhh, this was just as wonderful as I'd hoped it would be!! I've been waiting--wanting--to read Pacifica for the longest time now, and it was so, so worth it. I loved Marin, I loved Ross (despite... his name... which shouldn't matter, but when it's the same as the guy from Friends, yeah), and I loved the complicated relationships they had with each other and with other people in their lives.

    This was just SO GOOD.

    GUYS THIS BOOK ADFSAHFKJSDH

    FIRST OF ALL, I'VE ALWAYS LOVED PIRATES



    SECOND OF ALL, THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING I'VE EVER WANTED

    1. Marin - I don't remember the last time I loved the MC so much. Marin is such an interesting and complex character - she is a totally badass pirate, but at the same time a sweet girl who just want to be loved and appreciated. "Sailing the ocean to chase adventure is in her blood" is totally true. The moment she stepped on that boat you could see how capable she is and how

    This is a hard one because Kristen Simmons writes beautifully, the characters are interesting, and I like the idea of the world she's created, particularly because of the poignant significance it has to her own heritage and the WWII internment camps of the Japanese, a dark part of our history. That said, this book didn't really work for me-- I couldn't get into the story and the pacing, and I'm sad because I was very much looking forward to this book. I have a feeling though that others will lik ...more

    In Pacifica, Kristen Simmons has created a world where climate change has impacted the world so negatively that the world we know today doesn’t exist any longer and I have to say, it is quite frightening that this could probably actually happen. It's no secret that I love the stories that Simmons writes and this one is no different. From start to finish I was immersed in this story of politics, friendship, and family. Also – the cover is amazing! As always...no spoilers below.

    I'm going to say it --> This is pretty much one of the BEST pirate stories I've read! I don't even know where to begin with this review?! Peoples, I absolutely freaking adored this one. I actually wasn't sure it'd work for me, as I'm not super keen on dystopian anymore. But it was perfect. It absolutely swallowed my feels whole and I just (!!!)

    My emotions are all: !!!!!

    WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

    • pirates; badass epic conniving pirates

    • one of the best most wholesome friendships ever

    • shipping (rel

    Because he had done this, and it felt like he knew now that sometimes you had to be a pirate in order to survive.


    When he'd hung his head and accepted his sentence, he clung to one final image: a skinny girl with wild curls, driving the boat she'd made with her bare hands into the wide open sea. He thought of Marin, not because she was one of the 86, or because she'd brought him here. Because she was the bravest person he'd ever known, and right now, more than ever, he needed to be brave.
