For listeners of Outlawed, Piranesi, and The Night Tiger, a riveting, roaring adventure novel about a legendary Chinese pirate queen, her fight to save her fleet from the forces allied against them, and the dangerous price of power

When Shek Yeung sees a Portuguese sailor slay her husband, a feared pirate, she knows she must act swiftly or die. Instead of mourning, Shek Yeung launches a new plan: immediately marrying her husband's second-in-command, and agreeing to bear him a son and heir, in order to retain power over her half of the fleet.

But as Shek Yeung vies for control over the army she knows she was born to lead, larger threats loom. The Chinese Emperor has charged a brutal, crafty nobleman with ridding the South China Seas of pirates, and the Europeans??tired of losing ships, men, and money to Shek Yeung's alliance??have new plans for the area. Even worse, Shek Yeung's cutthroat retributions create problems all their own. As Shek Yeung navigates new motherhood and the crises of leadership, she must decide how long she is willing to fight, and at what price, or risk losing her fleet, her new family, and even her life.

A book of salt and grit, blood and sweat, Deep as the Sky, Red as the Sea is an unmissable portrait of a woman who leads with the courage and ruthlessness of our darkest and most beloved heroes… (més)

This was perfectly fine, but I think it needs to be a little more one thing or the other. It is very literary, focused on relationships and power dynamics, while the topic is female pirates navigating a very masculine and dangerous profession. I really enjoyed it, but something felt missing, I either needed more adventure or more character development. ( )

Refreshing to read a historical fiction novel based on a powerful Asian woman, but I was not able to connect at all with the characters or the story. ( )

The cover for Deep As The Sky, Read As The Sea by Rita Chang-Eppig is EXCELLENT! It says it all, a woman pirate on the high seas. I would have grabbed the book no matter what, so, yes, a cover does have a big influence over me when it comes to choosing books.

I love anything to do with water, and women pirates, well, how awesome is that? They can be just as vicious as the men. Sometimes it’s a choice between fighting or death, and Shek Young chose life. She can birth a baby and behead an adversary. Her life is a strategy, with few she can trust. She suffers losses, but cannot let it show, or those watching on the sidelines, waiting for an opportunity, would see it as a sign of weakness, putting her life in jeopardy.

In the beginning, she had no power over her life. Once she found it, she did everything to keep it. Yes, she had to make compromises, but she was the one making the choice, not someone making it for her. And what waits for her at the end? Will her death be violent?

Deep As The Sky, Red As The Sea by Rita Chang-Eppig is an action packed adventure novel of life on the high seas and how many of those who chose or were forced came to be there, living, loving, fighting, dying.

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Deep As The Sky, Red As The Sea by Rita Chang-Eppig.

Rita Chang-Eppig's "Deep As The Sky , Red As The Sea" is as exciting as reading Pericles by William Shakespeare. The heroine, pirate is Shek Yeung. Not only can she behead an enemy, she can strategize the next move in a sea battle. It is a thrill pretending to stand in her sea shoes. The bloody truth is that Shek Young must maintain the control of the ship, at least half of it.

Notwithstanding The piracy of ships must not stop. Therefore, while missionaries evangelize about eternal kingdoms, there is one electrifying truth. Women pirates do not cater to permanence. It is about overthrow and conquer. A complimentary copy received from Bloomsbury Pub. https://www.bloomsbury.com/us/ ( )

The prose is lyrical .. and the plot is clever and serpentine, exploring questions of power, violence, gender, and fate. This is not to be missed.
