Review by: Katherine L. Holmes on Oct. 29, 2011 :
Tarrin Lupo’s depiction of Patrick, an emigrant from a debtor’s prison to America, is spirited and beyond the shock of his being sold with other ship passengers as indentured servants. The historical landscape is at once established in the American south of the 1700s. But this is an adventure besides its descriptions of Oglethorpe and the blacksmith family where Patrick, once a jeweler, is established. The environment is chaotic and that opens up the plot to Patrick’s journeying with another of his shipmates to Freemasons who, with Indians, elude the British. They eventually confront pirates on the seas.

The dialogue and characters are convincing of this time. And what is more convincing is the adventure in a region where Indians, black men, and the Spanish are implicated in Patrick’s quest to buy his own freedom and to find his sister, arrived in Savannah.

The illustration adds to this book. I admired the author’s ability to create these historical scenes so that the characters of diverse fortune and race feel realistic.

I agree with other reviewers. It is an enjoyable romp. I did not do any fact checking to determine if his historical events are accurate, but from previous reviewers and his statements, I assume they are pretty close. I as expecting more of a pirate story, but pirates are somewhat involved, but Patrick spends much more time on land ir in the Red Lady!

Just finished reading this engaging trip through colonial times through the eyes of a likable chap and the folks he ends up involved with. Mr. Lupo's character development is excellent and the story is one which will make you want to stay awake one minute longer to read just one more page...

Looking forward to the sequel!

Review by: Elizabeth Marshall on Sep. 2, 2011 :
This is one of the most grounded historical books I have ever read. If you like historical fiction that is accurate and entertaining you will love this book.

Filled with adventure, suspense, intrigue, danger, love and hate, this story is about freedom and the fight for it in a new and dangerous world.

Tarrin has an incredible knowledge of history and he has used this knowledge to take the reader to a place and time in history when people bravely fought for the lifestyle we enjoy today.

I adored the characters, especially April and personally think that the author did a great job in using these people to show us a world not many have had a chance to see.

I loved this book and hope that Tarrin goes on to write more stories because I really can’t wait to read what he might write next.

I LOVED it!

The story is rich in description and adventure. I also couldn't help but develop a fondness for some of the characters very quickly, and a strong dislike for others, just as fast. Throughout the story, inside I was cheering for my new friends successes, and anxious when they faced their challenges.

Mr. Lupo managed to pull together and unite people of diverse color and culture to the pursuit of one cause, freedom. A wonderful job by the author of letting it ring, and a reminder that it has always been purchased with great sacrifice.

I've never spent much time in Savannah. However, by the middle of the book, I was ready to pack up and go exploring! I've also developed an even greater respect for the original families who made their lives there, and how they struggled to flourish, as well as for the struggles Native Americans lost when the Europeans arrived on their beaches.

I also liked that the author provided information at the end of the story, defining fact from fiction.

I must also point out that although it's a wonderful adventure story, I'd not recommend this version for younger readers, or adults, who find adult situations and language offensive. The story is not filled with these situations, however, there are a few instances where they appear in the novel.

That aside, it was a wonderful read, and well worth the purchase.

My regret was when the story ended, so, I'm hoping for a sequel.

Enjoyed this read very much!

For me the United States' history began with the Revolutionary War for Independence. But "Pirates of Savannah" let me into the world of Colonial America, and such a diverse, colorful world it was.
This novel is well researched and full of arrestingly vivid characters, everyone fascinating in his/her own way, everyone so different from another, people of different races, religions, upbringing, united in one common desire for freedom and equality.

A history lesson combined with a fascinating story - what more can one ask?

Review by: Austin Briggs on Aug. 14, 2011 :
Just finished Tarrin P. Lupo's book. What an experience. I feel like I've just come out of the steamy, dangerous, yet hopeful Savannah of the 18th century.

I have several comments - and as always when I'm deeply touched by a book, I'll mention 3 strongest areas and 1 area where I believe the book can further improve.

The strongest areas:

+ The depth and breadth of research. Clearly Tarrin has gone through much historical material, and the book rolls, fueled by his passion and knowledge. I got truly excited about visiting Savannah one day; the same way I was excited about London after reading Ken Follett's monumental work. Some locations, it seems, will stay in my memory for a long time: the Thunderbolt, the Jekyll Island, the ships, and others, although I've never set foot in the South of the US yet. I loved the mixture of different characters: the local Indians, the Scots and the Irish, the harlots and the pirates, the aristocrats and the indentures. Lots of thinking has gone into each person, and they come alive on the pages to speak to us.

+ The ideals of Freedom and Liberty. The book clearly doesn't glorify the pirate's anarchy; but it does take a strong stance against the governmental repression. Every chapter is rich in examples of the British oppression of the colonies, and the pain it has brought.

+The humor. While the book, overall, is filled with much danger and pain, the reading gets lighter with Tarrin's sense of humor. He points out the ridiculous, and I enjoyed the soft jokes sprinkled throughout the book.

One recommendation:

- One area where I'd love improvement is the characters depth. The book has so much to say; and to be honest, I'd have enjoyed a much longer book, even if it were split into series, because then the author would have much more space to dedicate to fleshing out the human reactions to the events. At times, it was difficult to understand what do the heroes really feel in response to the events; the scenes changed too fast for my personal taste.

So, overall, an enjoyable read - l was lucky to have some free time during vacation to devour this work in just a few days! :)

One word of caution for parents: There's a fair amount of adult content and some gore - as you'd expect in such a book!

I already own the paperback of Pirates of Savannah, but thought I would pick up the eBook!

I have been “studying” pirate history for the past few years and am thrilled that Tarrin mention things that are “facts” concerning the true pirate history. When I first started reading the book I knew it was going to be an awesome read….aka after reading about the reason for the “pirate patch”…..and the flint pistol in the chest with the salt…..sincerely enjoy the fact that there are so many “truths” about pirate history as well as the history of the places in Savannah.

I thoroughly enjoyed the history in this book. Tarrin brought the characters to life as well as made me think of things that never occurred to me before. Pirates, treasure, history, immigrants and love all combine into a good read.
