The Pirate's Wish - Strange Chemistry
After setting out to break the curse that binds them together, the pirate Ananna and the assassin Naji find themselves stranded on an enchanted island in the north with nothing but a sword, their wits, and the secret to breaking the curse: complete three impossible tasks. With the help of their friend Marjani and a rather unusual ally, Ananna and Naji make their way south again, seeking what seems to be beyond their reach.

Unfortunately, Naji has enemies from the shadowy world known as the Mists, and Ananna must still face the repercussions of going up against the Pirate Confederation. Together, Naji and Ananna must break the curse, escape their enemies — and come to terms with their growing romantic attraction.
Synopsis from

Cassandra Rose Clarke's series reminds me a bit of The Arabian Nights with magic still in the world, the seas divided into either pirate waters or confederation's and the oriental setting.
The first book, The Assassin's Curse, I enjoyed immensely. Fleeing through the desert to find somebody who can lift their curse, Ananna and Naji's clashing natures became very clear. One belonging to the sea, the other to the desert, they are still both stubborn and spirited, and set on the same goal.
I hope they will keep their spirit in the sequel The Pirate's Wish, where they have to deal with impossible tasks, deadly foreign enemies and what's more, themselves, to reach their freedom. I'd guess that the last part would be the hardest for both of them.

What's your choice this week? Tell us in the comments.
