Welcome to JoJo’s Corner!!!
I’m so excited for today’s book review…

The Vengeful Goddess Demands Her Tithe
When a stowaway is discovered aboard the merchant ship Kulap Kanya, Munny, a cabin boy on his first voyage, knows what must be done. All stowaways are sacrificed to Risafeth, the evil goddess of the sea. Such is her right, and the Kulap Kanya’s only hope to return safely home.
Yet, to the horror of his crew, Captain Sunan vows to protect the stowaway, a foreigner in clown’s garb. A curse falls upon the ship and all who sail with her, for Risafeth will stop at nothing to claim her tithe.
Will Munny find the courage to trust his captain and to protect the strange clown who has become his friend?

If you haven’t discovered Anne Elisabeth Stengl, I highly recommend that you pick up Goddess Tithe and get to know one of my absolute favorite authors!
Stengl is a masterful writer, almost magical really.
Goddess Tithe is full of vivid, detail and immerses readers completely into the story and lives of the characters.
This is a story of courage and friendship and adventure.
This is such a unique story and I love it!
