Publisher's Summary

Kemosha and her brother have lived their whole lives in slavery. Sold away to work in lawless Port Royal, Kemosha takes her chance to escape brutal treatment. With fortune on her side, Kemosha befriends Ravenhide, a man with a mysterious past who teaches her the art of sword fighting and introduces her to the beautiful runaway Isabella.

Yet Kemosha's greatest test yet is upon the deck of the Satisfaction: the notorious Captain Morgan’s ship. His next adventure on the high seas could be the making of Kemosha - and her one chance to earn enough pieces of eight to buy the freedom of her brother....

Kemosa of the Caribbean

This story takes place on the island of Jamaica and includes some memorable characters. Creole and Spanish were a nice touch and emphasised the diverse culture in which it takes place.

Kemosha gains her freedom and enlists with Captain Morgan aboard his ship, the Satisfaction, where she earns enough to determine her future. Even though she is never far from slavery, violence, and death, she remains upbeat about her life.

A quick read with an interesting tale that I found very engaging.
