A Review of Belle and the Pirate by Vivienne Savage

Karen’s Review

This has been such an enjoyable series. Belle and the Pirate is number four of this six book set.

Belle is a tiny fairy, no bigger than a thumb. We already know her because she has appeared in previous books as Tinkerbell, a little sprite.

Apart from the beautiful prose, and pretty formatting there were many other things I enjoyed about this story. One was how names from our favourite tales, Blackbeard, Peter Pan, and Captain Hook, all appeared. They were different characters, and each of them had interesting personalities.

I was a little confused over Tink’s transformation to Belle. She had three days of being ‘big’ but it came with a condition and I was never clear about what that was.

It didn’t distract from the story in any way, although maybe it was me who misunderstood it.

The series of Once Upon A Spell is a fabulous read and those who love romantic fantasy, will adore them. Beneath are my reviews to the previous books as well at the link to this book.


Tinker Bell may long for companionship, but unpaired male fae are a rarity in Cairn Ocland. When her dearest friends become parents, Tink embarks on a journey to the fairy birthlands to meet the sprite born from the baby’s first laugh. Unfortunately, her adventure doesn’t go according to plan when poachers interrupt her mission.

Captain James Hook deserted the Eisland Navy twelve years ago to battle slavery on the high seas. As a pirate, he raids the ships of his former kingdom and their corrupt allies to the east while liberating them of ill-gotten goods. Rescuing a little fairy bound for the pet trade is an unexpected bonus.

Tink is everything James has ever desired in a woman—courageous, feisty, and loyal, but her diminutive size isn’t their largest obstacle. The Eisland Navy has a new weapon at its command, a mystery capable of demolishing a ship in a single blow. And the Jolly Roger is their next target.

Undertake a magical journey in Vivienne Savage’s new romantic fantasy series loosely based on the lore of multiple fairy tales. Meet strong heroines supported by a cast of sexy heroes, intriguing friends, and devious villains.
