Pirate Vishnu was the first book that I have read in this series, and I enjoyed it so much that I went back and purchased book one in the series. Pirate Vishnu is an exciting read with a treasure hunt, plenty of action, and a suspenseful tale that keeps the reader guessing. Jaya is well developed throughout the book, and Jaya and the reader get to explore her past together as she tries to determine the truth about her ancestor. The book has some great secondary characters that really add to the story, and despite being the second book in the series I was able to catch on quickly. So I definitely think that you can read this as a standalone however reading book one before would add to the enjoyment so you would know about Jaya's previous adventure. Overall Pirate Vishnu was a great read.
Received a copy of Pirate Vishnu through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
