Seeking to avenge the murder of her true love while on a dredge ship searching for gold, fifteen-year-old captain Poe Blythe becomes the architect of new defenses designed to destroy her enemies.
Poe Blythe, the young captain of the Outpost's last mining ship, wants revenge far more than the gold they tear from the Serpentine River. She has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. -- adapted from jacket

Not terribly impressed with this one. The concept was fascinating, but the main character's growth felt artificial, and the pacing was less than ideal. Tbh the side characters are the best thing about this.

An engaging adventure story for teens with a pirate theme and a steampunk vibe.

This book was so unique and such a great read. Ally Condie writes in the most beautiful way. It is very poetic and flows so satisfyingly. The story was so well written and I absolutely LOVED the connection to the Matched series. Anyone else catch that???
Everyone, read this book right now!

Poe is such an intriguing and understandable character. She is driven by her grief to hate, but when she has to see up close what her hate has accomplished, she has more decisions to make. This is about her internal journey of who to trust and if she can care about people again. Ultimately, she has to decide who she will become.

When Poe is made captain of the Lily, a river ship dredging for gold, Poe thinks it is just because she designed the armor and knew the ship from bow to stern. The Admiral chose Poe for a reason, she just needs to figure out why. As the voyage begins, Poe is taken back to her last time on the water and how badly that turned out. As the dredge makes it way down the river, collecting the gold the Admiral so badly wants, the crew has to fight raiders, jumping ship, getting back on, and while thinking of the wrath of the Admiral when he finds out that they have lost the ship. A lot to take on for a 17-year-old. Adventure, romance, tragedy, and happiness make this book a great read.
