Sequel to Lisa Jensen's Witch from the Sea

In October 2009, Reading Rocks gave Lisa Jensen's 2001 novel Witch from the Sea an A+ review.

Unfortunately, due to publishing setbacks, the two planned sequels never made it into print.

But Ms. Jensen didn't give up that easily! The first chapters of the sequel, RUNAWAYS, can now be found on her blog:

If there is enough support, Ms. Jensen will continue to post the story through to the final installment in the trilogy,

If you have not yet enjoyed the brilliance that is Lisa Jensen's first novel, I implore you to pick up a copy! It is a pirate novel of epic proportions, and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

In 1823, Tory Lightfoot runs away from Boston's soul-stifling Worthen Academy for Women, seeking freedom that she knows she'll never find there - only to be captured by pirates! She quickly takes to the life of an outlaw, joining the buccaneers as they plunder ships and dodge the pirate-hunting American "West India Squadron." But it is her heart that tests her character and ability to survive. First there is Matt, a handsome gentleman's-son-turned-pirate out to prove himself on his own terms. There's also Jack, her mentor, who reluctantly helps her adapt to the brigand's life.
