Bohermore (The Pirate Queen Book 1)

Written by Jennifer Rose McMahon

Meet Maeve. College Student. Treasure Hunter. Cursed.

When your dreams become reality, being cursed can be a real nightmare.

Like a punch in the face, eighteen-year-old Maeve O’Malley’s visions knock her off her path. The Pirate Queen stalking Maeve in her dreams killed her mother years ago, and now, the villain is coming for her. Maeve’s decision to ditch Boston College takes everyone by surprise as she packs her bags, leaves America, and heads to the west coast of Ireland to chase her dreams–and end them.

Maeve uncovers an ancient family curse that refuses to remain silent until she accepts her predestined role in what many thought was only a legend. Her Irish history professor–a man she shouldn’t be falling for–is the only person who understands the origins of her torment.

Maeve’s journey becomes a medieval treasure hunt through Ireland’s castles and ruins as she tracks the wrathful Pirate Queen who has her marked for vengeance.

“Excellent debut. Teen and adult readers alike will be clamoring for the sequel.” – Publishers Weekly Starred Review ★★★★


Q: What inspired you to write BOHERMORE?
I wrote BOHERMORE after travelling to Ireland many times and becoming fascinated with its ancient history. I married an Irishman whom I met while studying abroad in Galway and we now live near Boston with our four teenage children and two dogs.
My grandparents immigrated to America in the early 1900’s and I first went to Ireland in search of their stories, hoping to make sense of my own. It was this personal journey that inspired the BOHERMORE Series.

Q: What books do you write?
I like to write magical realism and historical fiction. I’ve always been drawn to the idea of ghosts or being guided by ancestors and have had an unusual fascination with old cemeteries for as long as I can remember. My books are based on these genres.

  1. ROCKFLEET (prequel novella)
  2. BOHERMORE (book 1)
  3. INISH CLARE (book 2)
  4. BALLYCROY (book 3)
