Reviewed by Elysia



Tory is not your typical 18th century girl. She craves adventure and excitement. And sex. Eager to find out what it is all about, she makes some decisions that have dire consequences.

Colt is a man on a mission, one that includes forgetting his past as well as finding a way to make a living in his future.  He doesn’t plan on finding a confused young woman in need of his help.

The Cult by Maddie James is the second in the Legend of Blackbeard's Chalice series. I felt confused and lost through much of the beginning of this, and was unsure how much I had missed in the first volume. You can read it separately, but I wasn't completely sure of that at first and the way it began confused me, and I found it difficult to follow. As a result of the slow start for me, I never really was able to get into the book and enjoy it as much as it deserved. I didn't feel for the characters as much as I should have, finding myself more apathetic than sympathetic. The villain, however, was suitably evil and someone that I was anxious to see get his comeuppance. I have read other stories by Ms. James, and will likely continue to do so, but this one just wasn't one of my favorites by her.
