I bought the hardcover of this book directly from the author. The hardcover has an awesome cover and beautiful maps in both front and back.

The first half of the book is essentially world building and character building regarding pirates and life in the Caribbean. I can't speak to any accuracy of the historical fiction-ness, but the world and characters felt very authentic to me. The second half of the book deals with a rising conflict that pulls a band of pirates (Including the beloved scoundre

Old fashioned pirate tale with a modern twist

Really enjoyed this ripping tale of privateers. The crew is not the usual batch of stereotypes and it's a promising start to a series. Dragged a bit in spots but overall fun. Getting the second book soon.

Pirates. Caribbean intrigue. Fast moving and filled with adventure. Great characters that pull the reader into their lives and their stories. Most important to me, a fascinating thriller without profanity. Ozgur K. Sahin finds plenty of words to describe the unsavory and savory people in this book, and he doesn't resort to vulgarities. With maps, and historical accuracy, this is a great book for anyone's library!

"For fans of pirate fiction there is a worthy new addition to the genre from Ozgur K. Sahin, The Wrath of Brotherhood. Set in the Caribbean at the time of the Restoration, the book, which is the first of a new series, introduces us to Captain Roy Toppings an English gentleman bent on revenge for the death of his sister.

"Roy and his first mate, an ex-slave, recruit a crew of local men and a native South American, later enhanced by some dutchmen, and set out to plunder Spanish possessions and ship

The Wrath of the Brotherhood is a work of fiction set in the Caribbean during the golden age of piracy. We follow an English captain and his privateer crew on their adventures. There are interesting threads to the plot without being needlessly complicated. There are some interesting characters, and the dialects add flavor to somewhat flat dialog. This is clearly the start of what could be a very great adventure. It is the promise of more adventures to come that has me excited. In summary this wa ...more

I purchased the hardcover version of this book from the author. I have to say, it is a very handsome book, well-edited and produced. More importantly, I found that the content was worth the price and matched the presentation.

The book is set in the height of the first wave of piracy in the Caribbean, the mid-1600s. Pirates were then what we would now call state-sponsored terrorists, and were employed by the other European powers to harass the Spanish. In what's probably the only major historical

Captain Roy Toppings had planned to live a relatively peaceful life plying a small shipping route between England and the Continent, but the murder of his sister by pirates set him on a different course, and now he’s a privateer operating out of Port Royal.

Roy’s quest for the man who he blames for his sister’s death has to be put on hold for the moment. It seems that the Spanish are up to something big, and the Dutch colony of Curaçao is in imminent danger. Can the crew of The Constance and thei

This is not your everyday pirate adventure book. This one’s been written with a deeper thinking, businesslike acumen, and politically savvy. Savvy? No? Well, let me say that the characters are vividly created and quite believable. The lives of privateers and their ways of conducting business were in-depth, reminding me, oddly enough, of one of my favorite video games, “Sid Meier’s Pirates!”, for my PSP. Trading for profit between more than one willing buyer is tricky, and Captain Roy Toppings, ...more

Firstly, when I first saw Ozgur Sahin in person, I couldn't resist buying his book. He sat with a few other authors at a local convention in Minnesota, but his setup was shouting with activity! He had old maps of the Spanish Main set out, with toy ships and doubloons scattered across them. I walked up thinking he was promoting a board game!

I'm glad I bought it. Not only did I feel I learned a lot more of piracy and privateers of the Caribbean than I did from other sources, but it was also full o

A young master writer in the making.

The first chapter or two reads a bit slow as the scene is set and the major characters introduced. It's worth it to keep going because once the story hits its stride you're sucked in to high action with great character development. At that point you read until you run out of story, while the main plot is resolved there's plenty left in limbo to make you wish the second book was already on your shelf. I will be purchasing this book again in print for my father.

It took me a few chapters to immerse my brain in this book. Historical fiction is not my typical norm, but it was recommended to me by a friend. I was readily able to set aside my prejudices and thoroughly enjoy this novel. I consider it a mark of a successful work of fiction if when, by the last few pages, i'm sad to see the characters narrative conclude, and left wanting to know more! Good read! More than worth the pittance of a price.

This book shows the writer has promise but needs more practice. The text is entirely without editing errors. But here’s the problem. We get more tell than show. There seems to be no driving reason for some of the characters to do what they are doing. The characters feel very Mary Sue. All difficulties are too easily surmounted.
