I enjoyed this book. It is most definitely an action packed thriller. Chock full of fighting and intrigue from page one through the final pages. There's even a romance. Wilbur Smith creates a complex and realistic scenario involving modern day piracy. I did find myself not wanting to put it down to see what happened next.

That being said, there is a lot of graphic violence, including rapes. At times, the violence seemed a little gratuitous. Probably not a good book for anyone with rape triggers. At the beginning of the book I also felt an anti-islamic sentiment that almost made me stop reading. It did lessen as the book went on, and I do not believe that was the intent, but for me it was there.
