Summary

During the Qing Dynasty in 1801, pirates kidnapped Mógū from a floating brothel off the shore of Guangzhou. So began one of the most notorious adventurers to take on the waters of South China. Mógū's rough start as a discarded daughter raised by nuns worsened after puberty when she was sold to work on a flower boat. Shrewd and determined to come out on top of each bad situation, Mógū prospers from a golden opportunity with the pirates who kidnap her. Quickly adapting to sword fighting and collecting riches, she shows Zheng Yi and Po Tsai more lucrative ways to live. Over miles of open ocean, plundering Portuguese and British fleets, through love and loss, Mógū, now known as Ching Shih, rises to each challenge with surprising grit. Negotiating amnesty for her band of outlaws, she seeks a place of her own for peace and happiness. In her best book yet, D.W. Plato weaves an unforgettable tale of how one woman's strength leaves us inspired and thinking long after turning the last page.

Hallie Cox: Sorry I never remember the name of the books. The story is great but the proof reading was terrible

thomsonleanne58: I'm invested due to the other stories with these people, so it's easy for me to get involved quickly into the characters, if u didn't know the other stories, it could be a pity party

Iliana McKenzie McClain: Its so good , honestly I love it , great job

mrsbabear: I love all the books in this series so far. I especially like the fact that these stories are fairly short. Just a question though…why didn’t you tie up the loose end in regards to the past relationship with Tilly and Kyle Lazzartti?

Jamie: I’m not a professional writer! I love the story so far and I’m completely hooked on the White Wolves books. Plot is very straight forward but threw me for a loop once or twice. Replaying the same scene from another character POV is infuriating when I’m excited to read what’s next but I don’t want...
