Summary

From award-winning author E. J. Mellow comes the thrilling second installment in the Mousai series, featuring a powerful sorceress who finds her loyalties tested by a ruthless pirate lord.

Within the world of Aadilor, there is a hidden place called the Thief Kingdom, where both magic and pleasure abound. There, the Mousai, a trio of deadly sorceresses bound by oath and blood, use their powers to protect the kingdom’s treasures. 

Niya Bassette brings the potent gift of dance to the Mousai, but behind her tempting twirls, she carries a heavy secret - that the infamous pirate lord, Alōs Ezra, has been threatening to exploit for years. Now banished from the Thief Kingdom for smuggling, Alōs resurfaces in Niya’s life with a plot to hold her hostage, leveraging what he knows to extort a pardon from the Thief King. 

But Niya makes her own deal with Alōs to guard her secret and guarantee her freedom - yet in doing so binds herself aboard his pirate ship, where she must navigate deadly waters, a bloodthirsty crew, and her own traitorous heart. Soon, a simmering attraction between her and Alōs threatens their delicate truce and makes for a tumultuous ride on the open seas. Far from her kingdom, Niya is entangled in a dangerous dance indeed.

Welcome to the world of Aadilor, where dark deeds can mask noble hearts and the most alluring of sways often ends with a burn. Care for a spin?

Critic reviews

“The pace of the novel is fast from the first page, with a little bit of romance and adventure rolled into the plot. Fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies will enjoy this series.”Booklist

“A magical tale of love, honor, and family. E.J. Mellow sweeps the reader away to a wonderfully imaginative world, with characters as colorful and entrancing as the vivid locales they travel to. Dance of a Burning Sea is a perfectly titled seafaring epic fantasy that’s spellbinding from start to finish.”—Rob Samborn, author of The Prisoner of Paradise

It was ok

It is a story that passes the time but it was just ok. The characters are ok, the story is over the top at times, the romance is ok. It is what it is and serves its purpose but I won’t be listening to the third.

spicy enemy's to lovers

This book had me hooked from the start. Such a great slow burn between the characters. I love pirate stories and strong female lead so I give this 5 stars! I can't wait for the next book so I can fall in love with that one too.

Everything was great but the make narration

Loved the story, loved the characters, loved the female narrator, but the male narrator was horrible! I felt like he was basically yelling all of his lines in a very stern tone. It's really abrupt and distracting.

A bargain and a woman tied to a ship captain.

This is a second book in a series and could be a stand alone but a few things would not be explained. I love what I call a time piece book, certain etiquette and behaviors. Her sisters and father carry through the books. A stubborn and somewhat temperamental female falls in to her own vices to serve a bargain with a notorious captain that she has history with. Characters with powers, romance, adventure. Very enjoyable listen.
