“It’s not an ironic pirate novel. It’s not a pirate novel with a secret gimmick. It’s simply an entertaining tale filled with crafty privateers, despicable villains, treasure hoards, double crosses and a sea monster. Go figure.”
-Michael Berry, San Francisco Chronicle
“The plot sucks you in like the giant kraken monster that nearly sinks our hero’s galleon.”
