Narrator Catherine Ho ably communicates the colorful characters that populate this boisterous tale of rowdy pirates, magical creatures, and swashbuckling adventure. Twelve-year-old Lintang yearns for a life on the high seas and is thrilled when offered a chance to set sail with the infamous pirate queen Shafira. Along with various magical beings called mythies and an all-female crew of daring buccaneers, Lintang is soon in the thick of high-spirited adventure and intrigue. Ho nimbly brings out the many personalities aboard the ship, excelling most notably in her clipped and gruff portrayal of Captain Shafira and her youthful reading of impulsive Lintang. Supporting characters are memorable, including the pixie, Pelita, who is both mischievous and poignant. A fun and engaging audiobook that the whole family will enjoy.
