Pacifica Read Online Free - 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 president’s son would command could feed her people for years and restore her family’s 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.

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...

I had high hopes for Pacifica, even more so after I read the author’s foreword and realized the story was in part inspired by the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II—a topic that gets touched upon relativel...

• LOOOOOVED the heroine
• Main dude was knocked out most of the time, but he grew on me
• The main plot was very timely
• Friendship aspect gets an A+
• Romance was very cute
• The writing was a bit meh (or maybe I wasn't in the mood?)
• Ending was wrapped up way too conveniently
I'm a bit on the fence...

In Pacifica, she's created a bleak, futuristic world that's utterly believable and terrifying, and yet from out of it springs the greatest of hope, carried on the back of its fierce main characters. I was...

In Pacifica, Kristen Simmons gives us a scary realistic near future post apocalyptic world where the Melt has covered much of the landmasses with water.
Kristen bases much of the story on an island of garbage (and this is based on reality! Look up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch which is twice th...

Once again, Kristen Simmons creates a vivid post-apocalyptic world view, this time focusing on climate change and the effect it has on the future. PACIFICA is filled with action-packed scenes, a tender romance, and a harrowing and intriguing setting.
PACIFICA follows Marin, a cosario (think pirate...

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...

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 actuall...
