it was amazing
Read in July, 2012

I had very high expectations of this novel due to the brilliance of the first in the series and I am happy to say that I was not at all disapointed.

The action was more intensified than the first and there was plenty of gore to acompany it. I honestly could not stop reading, I was without a doubt completely addicted to the adventure, violence, gore and the charming manner of which the pirates spoke in.

At first I was not too sure about the new characters but I quickly grew fond of them, particularly Calloway who like Kate in the first novel grew into quite a couragous, powerful women. And I do enjoy novels that host powerful women. There were times during the novel when I felt like stomping on my kindle (spoiler) like when Blackbeard ordered his men to take in a girl and do whatever they pleased with her.

Tomerlin's audacious manner of writing is very admirable and is creates a potent image of what real pirates were like. He doesn't flutter around the horrible natures of particular people like a lot of writers do but rather intensely projects a clear idea of even the most despicable of traits. However, I wish there was more of Kate and I was aslo disapointed in Nathan's end as I thought him a much more intelligent person.

Overall the book was brilliant, daring and utterly addictive. I am hoping there is another. There has to be another! Tomerlin truly is an amazing writer and it's clear success is within his very near reach.
