Author Spotlight: Review of Swept Away by Kamery Solomon

Swept Away
Swept Away Saga #1
Kamery Solomon

Dead men tell no tales... 

For more than 200 years, the Treasure Pit on Oak Isle has baffled treasure hunters, engineers, and the common man alike. When Samantha Greene arrives, she finds her estranged father has spent years funneling energy and finances into the endeavor, finding nothing. 

When an accidental death occurs in the pit, fulfilling the prophecy that seven lives must end before the treasure can be found, the search kicks into high gear, with more than one party vying for the secrets that lie below. Finding herself the closest to the treasure anyone has ever been, Samantha throws herself into the work, landing among the coveted prize. Just as she's about to discover what's truly hidden beneath the island, the pit begins to flood with ocean water, sweeping her away despite her attempts to swim to the surface. 

Upon awaking, Samantha discovers that, not only did she not drown, but the year is 1695—one hundred years before the Treasure Pit was even discovered. Carried off by the pirate Tristan O'Rourke, a rouge Irishman with more than his share of secrets, she soon finds that there is much more than she realized in play. Will she discover the secrets of Oak Isle, or will an unexpected love keep her from finding out the truth? Will she ever make it back to her own time? Perhaps the real question is this; will she want to?

Modern day pirates......Or so I thought........

Wow, right off the bat the author throws in the feelers in this story. I was intrigued and reeled in while bawling like a baby for the main character in the story. This was quite to start out the beginning of an amazing and wonderful journey.

Mystical, magical, pirates, gold, legends, and a past so full of history with a mix of myths. I will add that some of the truths were stretch a little to fit the story, but it made for a perfect match. This book was extremely addicting read. I never saw what was coming in this story until it happened, which made this story that much more unique and enjoyable. The characters were amazing and made this a phenomenal page turner. I simply fell in love with this story and I highly recommend it to all who love a great love story with quite the unforgettable adventure in it.

The author provided me with a digital ARC copy of the book for review purposes only. No remuneration was exchanged.
