Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5–8—Navigating the dangers, depths, and shifting alliances of the high seas is always a tricky affair. Because Lucy Bluecrowne, Maxwell Ault, and Oliver Dexter (pirate's daughter, aspiring natural philosopher, and midshipman–turned–acting prize captain, respectively) are barely teenagers, what might have been merely tricky turns into an undertaking of epic proportions. With settings ranging from the tumultuous Baltimore harbor to the magical fictional port of Nagspeake, this sequel to Milford's Bluecrowne follows the quest for a mysterious ancient engine, a weapon that could perhaps put an end to war. Beautifully written, with careful attention to historical details, the story balances steampunk elements, mythology, and action with plenty of passion, jam, and jokes. The surprising conclusion will astonish and satisfy, despite more than one deus ex machina. Wheeler's textured illustrations add movement and lucidity, making the denser and more difficult to visualize elements of the plot accessible. VERDICT An unusually rigorous romp for lovers of steampunk, mystery, and swashbuckling adventure.—Katya Schapiro, Brooklyn Public Library

Review

"This world has a seductive, fairytale quality – Patrick O’Brian’s Captain Aubrey series as seen through the lens of Hayao Miyazaki. . . It's impossible not to admire The Left-Handed Fate for its epic scope, joyful evocation of life on the high seas and suspenseful mystery." ―The New York Times Book Review

"Rich and strange of place and premise; suspenseful and thought-provoking." ―
Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on The Left-Handed Fate

"Beautifully written, with careful attention to historical details . . . An unusually rigorous romp for lovers of steampunk, mystery, and swashbuckling adventure." ―
School Library Journal on The Left-Handed Fate

"the story teems with lively characters and a captivating sense of place, all driven along by the engrossing puzzle of the mysterious contraption. . . . A colorful, swashbuckling caper full of heart." ―
Booklist on The Left-Handed Fate

"The idea of achieving peace through superior firepower is effectively questioned over the course of the narrative, but it is the human questions of honor, courage, and generosity―embodied in decisive Lucy, philosophical Max, impish Liao, and dutiful Oliver―that will leave readers cheering by the book’s rousing close." ―
The Horn Book on The Left-Handed Fate

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!
Reviewed in the United States on January 14, 2021
Wow. Just wow. What a journey w/Kate Milford this has been. She has, in a short time, become a favorite author of all time. I am blown away at her writing..the way she can tell a story..her descriptions, her characters, plots..the details! Right down to blending historical facts into her fiction, & all the research & work she puts into, not only making the story as great as possible, but as accurate as possible for the factual parts. Also, this world. How they can all be so connected to each other, but each feel like completely different books from the others. It isn’t a storyline that is just the same plot dragging on. Even if they were, I still would want more lol I hope we get a ton more from the characters in each storyline. I love them all so much. In this one we are back w/Lucy & Liao. We 1st met them in BlueCrowne. It’s a few years later. They’re on their ship the Left-Handed Fate on a new mission their Papa has taken on. It’s dangerous, suspenseful, & full of adventure. We have some old favs, & definitely some new ones too. This broke my heart, & then put it back together better than before. The ending was so beautiful & perfect I got teary. The love I have for all the characters is strong. Lucy is a strong girl, a natural leader, & only happy at sea. Just like her papa. Liao still has my heart. He couldn’t hurt a fly, even though his talent could bring enemies to their knees begging for mercy. Such a pure, gentle heart. This shows how awful war is, & the evil it can bring out in people..but also the good. People could build a machine that has the power to do anything you wish. Depending on who has that machine determines the beauty or the horror to be made. Good & evil. Good & bad. Love all of these books so much. CANNOT WAIT for the next book that comes out next month!! Beautiful cover w/absolutely BEAUTIFUL illustrations all through the book by Eliza Wheeler as well. Loved that. Highly recommend!💜
