Very nice writing, poetic. The story tracks along the plotline of an old poem. I really enjoyed it but thought the plot wandered a bit.

I've had this one on my phone forever and reading it in bits and pieces. Overall it's a nice story told with polished sentences and paragraphs. I like the old waterfront town and the scenes on the ships. Needs a nice cover, though. Thanks.

I enjoyed this story and the references to the classic poem. The images and scenes and setting were well drawn, had a true sense of being there. It was told in a kind-of poetic way - like there was a bit of magic subtly mixed in. I think the author should put a nice cover on this book (it deserves it). Otherwise it's great.

This sea adventure is told with beautiful poetic descriptions. The setting and a relationship between the main characters hooked me in. The author skillfully cuts from one scene to the next changing locations and moving ahead in time which kept me guessing. With allusions to a famous poem throughout (one of my favorites) the story took on a richer and deeper meaning. Thank you for sharing this story and I look foreward to reading another sea adventure by this author.

I really enjoyed the poetic language and imagery the author uses throughout this salty yarn. There are so many great little details described, from clothing, wind and salty waves, and so many more that make this story appeal to the senses. Another things that really made this story great was that it's dedicated to the 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes an epic poem that I'd heard of but hadn't read. This story inspired me to read it and it's awesome.
