    1 thought on “The Pirates of Pacta Servanda”

    1. Re-read August 2016 - just as fantastic as the first time. Mechanics Allie, Calu, and Ken are a treat. I loved the way every time the group took over a ship or a guild hall, they'd hear celebrating from those taken prisoner - Pirates! So much in this book was smile-inducing and even laugh out loud funny. The relationship between Mari and Alain continues to evolve - and finally Alain is starting to rise up and even out the relationship. In the past, Mari has been finding her footing as the chosen [...]

    2. The Pirates of Pacta Servanda marks a big change in the story. Instead of Alain and Mari by themselves against the Guilds, Mari steadily gains a small army of mechanics, mages and commons by the end of this book. Instead of fighting to survive, Mari now goes on the offensive with strategic attacks. The book is also darker, as both Alain and Mari grapple with the magnitude of the task they have ahead of them and the consequences of failure.After miraculously surviving the assassins in Altis, Mari [...]

    3. The story just gets better and more and more people join Alain and Marie. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    4. The Pillars of Reality Series keeps clipping along at a strong pace, adding depth to characters and introducing new threats at every turn. Master Mechanic Mari and Mage Alain are running from the great guilds and the empire, desperate to finally find a way to be free of their reign. They are under attack from all sides, as they search with their new friends and allies to find a place to build for the future. The gripping thing about these books isn't the death defying escapes from ridiculously o [...]

    5. These really are getting better with each one. I'm still finding some of the necessary character growth of the MC to be a bit predictable and pedestrian, but the story, characters, and world building are exceptional.

    6. Minor rant before I get to the review. Many of you have heard of the Sad Puppy/Rabid Puppy campaigns. These campaigns claim that they are standing up for non-political, less message focused works. If this was the case, I might have had a bit of sympathy for them but IMHO, Sad Puppy/Rabid Puppy or whatever they want to call themselves are merely groups of like-minded writers seeking to corrupt the nomination procedure by political shenanigans in order to increase visability for their mostly medio [...]

    7. Dang it! I thought this was the last book of the series! I actually just found the series about a month ago and I was feeling smug because I thought I didn't have to wait long for the last book. I thought wrong =(Having said that, it's a great continuation of Mari's & Alain's story. We get to see how this plan of theirs is going to work and we get glimpses of the a future. I can't hardly wait! The only thing is that Mari is a whiner and at times it gets old and annoying but I forgive her bec [...]

    8. Also posted on my blog Got My BookAL RATING = 4.5*Despite a few small issues, it has joined the previous books in high rotation on my audio playerOK DETAILS:The Pirates of Pacta Servanda by Jack Campbell, read by MacLeod Andrews, published by Audible Studios (2016) / Length: 11 hrs 32 minSERIES INFO:This is #4 of 5 (so far) in "The Pillars of Reality" series.

    9. Book four. Massive spoilers for The Dragons of Dorcastle, The Hidden Masters of Marandur, and The Assassins of Altis ahead.Since it does, after all, open with Mari and Alain on shipboard, with their allied Mages and Mechanics, and all the crew aware that Mari is the daughter. Which is why she's having nightmares of them all dying and its being her fault. . . .Pirates try to take them. And then they learn there is a ship laden with Mechanics held prisoner by Mechanics and turn pirate themselves a [...]

    10. It took me a long time to start this series, the blurb on the back of the first book just wasn't that interesting But it kept showing up, and I eventually started to read The whole series as FAST as I could!To date I think this has been one of the most masterful uses of dialogue to move a truly spectacular story forward at break neck speed, while also allowing deep insight into the characters themselves!There were times in the series when I was excited to find out just how the character's discus [...]

    11. Still going strong! The story is moving along at a great pace and the world continues to grow and feel real. The characters continue to make me laugh but also have very real failings and struggles. At times it feels like Mari wallows in the weight of her responsibilities and fears. Other than that, LOVING IT! Stayed up far too late the past few days listening to this latest installment. :D

    12. Every time I read (listen) one of the books in this series I just can't pace myself. Dragons! Magic! Mechanics! Pirates!MacLeod Andrews is an amazing narrator too.I can't wait for the next book in this series and I will devour it as I devoured the other one. Go read or listen, right now!

    13. Overall, I greatly enjoyed this book. It's kinda annoying that it took four books for the series to really take off and live up to the potential I saw in the first book. Each book has been pretty good and engaging, but this one definitely hit a better level of action and character blossoming which I enjoy. Alain and Mari finally reduce their relationship awareness and discussions to a much more tolerable level (though their relationship is pretty much a teenager's perfect dream). But the best (o [...]

    14. WHAT IT'S ABOUTMaster Mechanic Mari and Mage Alain have survived every attempt to stop them, but their enemies are determined to kill Mari, the only one who can save her world from a storm of destruction. As armies begin to gather and cities seethe with tension, Mari, Alain, and their friends must prepare to confront the storm in the place it first appeared: the broken kingdom of Tiae.The dangers facing them demand perilous raids, tough battles, and more than a little piracy. Beating the Mechani [...]

    15. I got this book by mistake, thinking it was a different series. The things that were bugging me about The Pillars of Reality series got markedly better in this book. Mari grew up a bit and stopped being quite so insufferable, Alain is starting to assert himself.I still won't continue the series on purpose, but this one turned out to be a much more enjoyable read than the previous three books.

    16. OH NO YOU DIDN'T Jack Campbell!!! But you did, you had to show your roots! Well, I won't spoil anything but this was a fantastic 4th book in the series. It has pirates (arrrrrrr) dragons, trolls, roc and flying mechanics. The romance is not annoying anymore and I can understand how the character arcs were written that way. Best part is the team comes together so it's not just Marie and Alain. Now she has a wonderful supporting cast of misfits out to blow up the world! mwhahahahahahahaah

    17. They will never changeHow many times have you been told "we always do it this way" when something different is being suggested. Well Marie has challengedo her teachers and they want her dead. They even sent her into an ambush to kill her. But little did they know that a young talented Mage was being set up for the same reason. Together, the mechanic Maria and the Mage Alain have worked together. Together they have lived through many attacksm

    18. I love this series, and while I didn’t enjoy this book as much as its predecessor, it did an excellent job of continuing and developing the story. Some of their feats seemed almost too easy. I kept expecting something horrible to happen during the piracy at sea. Complications like another dragon, a troll, and the Assassins were handled without too much in the way of casualties. I’m keen to see where the next book takes us.

    19. This is one of those I pick up while I'm waiting on other books to come out. This one reminded me why I wasn't into this series. A little to lovee dovee for my taste. Everything in the book seem to just work out perfectly every time. We need an army bam we got one we need to stop the enemies bam bird coming out of the sky to help us stop the enemy.

    20. I am starting to think that this series is not meant to be binged. The repetition is starting to irritate me. Also, there were a few audio-editing glitches that took me out of the story when they happened. Still, this series is amazing.

    21. 3.5 There was more forward motion in this installment, but we are still repeating some of the same tropes from earlier books, (Don't call me "The Daughter". Am I really a leader? I just want to fix things. Mages learning to feel. Mechanics learning to accept non-mechanics, etc.)I had bought this before buying #3, I think on an audible Daily Deal. i'm ready to take a break

    22. (Review crossposted from my book review blog.)The Pirates of Pacta Servanda is another delightful entry in The Pillars of Reality series. It’s book four of (I believe) six.It’s good to see that my guesses about how the scope of this series would expand are proving true. In the first book, the only characters of any importance are Mari and Alain, and events are kept pretty local. But there was enough information given for me to guess as I read it that things would continue to expand and broad [...]

    23. This is one of the few book series I've only listened to on audio books, which does affect my review. Obviously I like the series, I wouldn't have followed Master Mechanic Mari and Mage Alain this far if I didn't find their story an interesting one and Jack Campbell a compelling author. But 4 books in and I'm starting to get a little tired of the delay with the two gathering their forces in order to put an end to the on coming "storm". This is a world where people who are not smart enough to be [...]

    24. I liked it well enough that I relistened to it when I was in need of a simple, feel-good heroine fantasy. Jack Campbell does not develop the character depth of other, classic fantasy authors. Good enough for listening to during a blue evening.
