Review by: Malcolm Torres on Oct. 09, 2016 :
This author is prolific and writes on a huge canvas with so many tales of fantasy and wonder. However, I am a complete nut for sea stories so it was easy for me to pick this title from the many he has written. It's always amazing to me when a writer paints a picture with colorful language and specific details and the tale becomes totally immersive. That is what the author has achieved in this novel. I was completely caught up in the story, following the main character from one adventure to the next.

Review by: Annette Gisby on Jan. 17, 2013 :
3.5 stars rounded up to four.

This book was difficult for me to get into. While well-written with interesting characters and a sound plot, the style of writing did not appeal to me. The language was a bit too flowery, the prose a bit too purple for my taste. I much prefer simpler, plainer language. This book would have seemed quite at home in an English Literature class to be studied and dissected, but as something to read for enjoyment's sake, it fell flat for me. This is just a personal opinion, lots of people do enjoy that style of writing.

There is adventure on the high seas, murder, magic and mayhem. The world building is good, from the squalor of seaside inns to life aboard ship amongst the pirates. Baus becomes more of a likeable character the further into the book we go, at first I wasn't too sure about him.

Give it a go if you enjoy a good adventure tale with pirates and rogues galore.

Review by: David H. Keith on Oct. 10, 2012 :
A story worthy of Stevenson or Verne, Turner spins a yarn brimming with derring-do, danger, gore, mayhem, slaughter, and swash-buckling enough to keep any pirate connoisseur happy. It reminded me of part "Pirates of the Carribean," part "Kidnapped," and I swear I could see Errol Flynn grinning his Captain Blood grin as cutlasses, rapiers, and sabres slashed around him. I happily recommend this book to any who love sea adventures, especially those that are written with intelligence and a flair for blood-letting.
