Gutsy girls and strong women make up the diverse and appealing crew of a pirate ship that battles intrigue and deadly monsters in an action-filled fantasy adventure.

"Combine a pirate adventure of mythic proportions, a uniquely charming cast of characters, and a vivid new fantasy world, and you get Lintang and the Pirate Queen. Magical, inventive, and positively unforgettable." --Marissa Meyer, best-selling author of The Lunar Chronicles

Lintang is an island girl who longs for daring and danger. When she meets the feared pirate Captain Shafira and her all-female crew, Lintang is determined to join them. Secrets within secrets, life-or-death battles with spectacular monsters, and hair's breadth escapes keep readers turning the pages of a story populated by women of color who are fighters, adventurers, and leaders.

Review quote

? "Moss's smooth, sensory prose carries readers through the story as fluidly as Shafira's ship navigates the waters around the United Regions...A particularly well-crafted, solid fantasy adventure." --School Library Journal, STARRED Review "In a cast of powerful and charmingly eccentric female characters, high-spirited Lintang distinguishes herself with a vulnerability and, often, immaturity that slowly gives way to burgeoning leadership. Women of color take center stage in this fast-paced adventure about friendship, loyalty, and defiantly fighting for one's destiny."--Publishers Weekly "The world Lintang resides in is inventive and nicely established... and the story is an immersive delight for any fan of fantasy fiction."--Booklist "An imaginative premise."--Kirkus "Fans of adventure on the roiling seas will find a lot to love in this Australian import. Reading like a cross between Moana and Pirates of the Caribbean, the swiftly moving plot is action packed, with plenty of on-deck swordfights, near-escapes, monsters, and magic."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books --
