Emily Windsnap and the Pirate Prince | Book Review

“An exciting new adventure starring half-mermaid, half-girl Emily Windsnap!”


Traveling home by cruise ship should be a relaxing break after Emily’s last adventure, but things take a turn when the ship is overtaken by a pirate king and his crew. After the pirates collect everyone’s riches, they steal something even more valuable: Aaron, Emily’s boyfriend. The pirate king’s eldest son takes Aaron captive, forcing him to help guide the pirates to the legendary Trident’s Treasure. So Emily dives into action and joins the younger son’s crew in hopes of saving Aaron.

But while experiencing life on the waves, Emily is surprised to find herself not only enjoying the pirate life, but actually bonding with the crew – especially Sam, the pirate king’s son. Between helping Sam unravel riddles to beat his brother to the treasure and making sure that her friends are safe, Emily realizes that she needs to be true to herself. Will she cast aside her mermaid life to join her new friends, or will she find a way to follow her own path?


I am in love with this latest Emily Windsnap adventure in this charming series. Emily Windsnap and the Pirate Prince is such a great book! It offers young readers the perfect balance of adventure, fantasy, mystery and a dash of romance. This would be a book I would have definitely be reading in middle school.

The characters are all intriguing and the storyline is just amazing. I love how this adventure empowers Emily and it is such an important message for young girls to read (don’t want to spoil it so you will have to read it!). šŸ˜‰

“From now on, I would be myself, and if anyone didn’t like it – well, that was for them to deal with, not me.” – Emily

I have become a fan of #EmilyWindsnap and am now going to try to read the other books in the series. We recommend this book for ages eight to 12 or if you just like a great fantasy book filled with mermaids, pirates, adventure and a bit of romance.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, I giveĀ Emily Windsnap and the Pirate Prince 5 fins out of 5!Ā

About Emily’s latest adventure, she says, “The inspiration for this story came during a book tour when I was discussing ideas for future adventures Emily might have. My publicist mentioned that I hadn’t written about pirates yet. ‘What about a pirate prince?’ she asked. I was immediately excited about the idea and spent a year having fantastic research trips on tall ships.”
