Starts off promisingly but drags on and on and on, and never really gets going. Some decent scenes that would've made nice short stories, but poor as an overall novel. ( )

A ripping good pirate yarn to be sure. It had plausible attacks and tactics, no mystical voodoo hooey like recent movies... just good old fashioned cutlass wielding scallywags. I might have given it five stars if the book had resolved all issues before the end, but it is clear that the author plans on continuing his sea saga. I don't mind sequels, I've read several ongoing stories, but each story should have a satisfactory ending. When the inevitablity of a sequel is shoved in your face, it's annoying. That being said, I probably will buy it anyway. ARRRRRGGH! ( )

Exciting romp across the seas full of adventure, battles, fights, blood, death, gore and gross injuries to satisfy the thirteen year old in all of us. Lots of period detail and enough nautical detail that even the real seadogs will enjoy the adventures of the Irish cabin boy cum pirate captain searching for treasure in the Caribee, Patrick Devlin.

Book description
Haiku summary

An injured French officer struggles along a desolate stretch of West African coastline, desperate to hold on to his secret. Alas for him, his tale is soon ended, and violently, but a young pirate recruit, Patrick Devlin, who happens to speak fluent French, comes away from their encounter with a new pair of boots and a treasure map. From there the adventures of the pirate Devlin, his shipmates, and those who wish them dead move forward without restraint, through broadside barrages and subterfuge and brutal encounters on land and at sea, where nothing is as it appears to be at first glance.… (more)
