Review of The Only Pirate at the Party by Lindsey Stirling (5 Stars)


Let me start by saying I’m biased. I’ve been a fan of Lindsey’s for quite a few years, ever since she started to develop a YouTube following. I also met her several years ago at a VIP meet-and-greet before one of her early concerts here in Pittsburgh.

That said, I found her autobiography (co-authored with her sister, Brooke) enthralling and very informative. It’s hard to write anything specific about it as I don’t want to give any spoilers, and I want you all to enjoy it with the same freshness as I did. If you are a fan, this is a must-read book. Given its surprisingly high Kindle price, I splurged for the hardback and wasn’t disappointed.

About Donald

A computer geek by day, Donald Firesmith works as a system and software engineer helping the US Government acquire large, complex software-intensive systems. In this guise, he has authored seven technical books, written numerous software- and system-related articles and papers, and spoken at more conferences than he can possibly remember. He is also proud to have been named a Distinguished Engineer by the Association of Computing Machinery, although his pride is tempered somewhat worrying whether the term “distinguished” makes him sound more like a graybeard academic rather than an active engineer whose beard is still more red than gray. By night and on weekends, his alter ego writes modern paranormal fantasy, apocalyptic science fiction, action and adventure novels and relaxes by handcrafting magic wands from various magical woods and mystical gemstones. His first foray into fiction is the book Magical Wands: A Cornucopia of Wand Lore written under the pen name Wolfrick Ignatius Feuerschmied. He lives in Crafton, Pennsylvania with his wife Becky, his son Dane, and varying numbers of dogs, cats, and birds.
