The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King

The Dust of 100 Dogs
by A.S. King
Genre: Historical, Pirates, Reincarnation, Romance
Published: 2009
Paperback: 330 pages
Rating: 5

Inspiration: I chose this book for the pirates theme and Debut Authors 2009 Challenge.

Description from the book:
Cursed to live the lives of 100 dogs, a seventeenth-century pirate finally returns to life as a human being and has only one thing on her mind--to recover the treasure she had buried in Jamaica three hundred years before.

My thoughts:
In-a-word: Arg!
This is an amazing story that was well crafted and well told. There were references to dogs, pirates, reincarnation, romance, and historical times woven into the tale that takes place in Ireland, the Caribbean and the U.S. I enjoyed the pirate scenes the most. Loved to see a swashbuckling female pirate hold her own!

  1. I loved this book and it gave me total whiplash - I'd get sucked into one character then annoyed as the book flashed forward or back...only to get sucked in there...and to have it happen all over again. I wonder what the author has next.
