What a fun story! Also, well done to the narrator, James Clamp, who really brought the story to life. I thought the developing love/hate relationship between Thatcher and Kate was both hilarious and endearing (was she named Kate as an hommage to Taming of the Shrew?). The action is non-stop. The dialogue is witty, even between Thatcher and the villain. The visuals are simply fantastic. Hannibal created a whole new world of liquid fire, roaring waters, and black stone with his underground Aztec r ...more

Pirates: The Midnight Passage by James R. Hannibal. It is a good old fashioned adventure that changed my view of pirates. When I thought of pirates, I thought of swashbuckling sword fights and murderous captains. No more. I have since discovered that Long John Silver didn't enjoy killing. Even Blackbeard asked permission before commanding a ship and its crew.

Jim Thatcher was different still. He valued life far above gold doubloons. He only killed for self-defense and when no other option was ava

The audio version of this YA historical fantasy is phenomenal. The new 2014 edition has been fleshed out significantly since the original 2010 novella, with great success. The addition of a new dynamic between Lady Kate and Thatcher really makes the tale, with plenty of romantic tension and witty dialogue. She makes for a strong and insightful female lead. Narrator James Clamp does a masterful job, though his Welsh characters sound so authentic that I had to listen very carefully to understand t ...more

I received the audio and print versions of this book through First Reads. The author asked to review the audio since the story had been enhanced since the book went out of print. I did read the book first and enjoyed it. Then I listened to the audio. What a great story. I really enjoyed the audio version that added in a possible love interest for Captain Thatcher. I can’t write it enough, it was just a fun story. I enjoyed all the sounds and dialogue.

I received the book for free through Goodrea

Maybe this is meant fora younger audience, but the supernatural creatures, ridiculous underground passage through Panama from the Caribbean to the Pacific and random loose ends left untied (not going to spoil the story) left me thinking this is at best a book for teens. And maybe it is. I picked up the audiobook cheap.

A well written story. I did not enjoy it as much as his other books it was however entertaining and fun
