Product Description

Review

THE PIRATE DEVLIN is top quality historical fiction. Mark Keating knows his period inside-out and his stylish prose and devilish plot fold it into a gripping read. This is the start of something big. (Harry Sidebottom, author of Warrior of Rome)

A superbly imagined, vividly written debut. Devlin is set to become the Sharpe of the high seas. (Saul David, author of Zulu Hart)

Keating's latest novel continues his insight into the pirate life with technical seafaring detail, bloody sea battles, treasure hunts and exotic settings. High adventure does not get much better than this. (Sunday Canberra Times)

Devlin is an anti-hero to savour . . . fearless and flawed, ruthless and roguish but with all the endearing honour that traditionally flourishes among fictional thieves. (Lancashire Evening Post)

a swashbuckling 18th Century adventure . . . sure to delight both fans of Sharpe and Hornblower (Peterborough Evening Telegraph)

Book Description

Rich in historical insight and told in a dramatic and engaging voice, this is a superb evocation of the period with a series character to rival Sharpe.

Format: Hardcover
Having loved Marks first novel in the series, The Pirate Devlin, I really couldn't wait to sail the high seas for further adventures. Whilst this title continues the tale of Patrick, Mark has taken a different angle to keep the reader just as engrossed by further expanding the characters within. It's beautifully descriptive, the characters are magical and whilst the tale is still full of daring do, Marks creativity gets to take the reader to new heights as his great control of prose and pace really won't let you put the title down.

Add all this to a great overall arc, enemies both new and old which when backed up with dangerous situations where the author plays for keeps leaves the reader with a tale where you hope that your favourites live. So shiver me timbers me hearties, splice the mainbrace, swash some buckles and prepare to sail the high sea's with a crew of dangerous vagabonds, adventure is to be had with gold to be treasured...

This is a real pirate yarn, the second in the series, following Keating's "Fight for Freedom" This is a must read for all pirate fans, those who enjoy a good "ripping yarn" )love that phrase". From lessons learned the hard way to a struggle that carries our hero Patrick Devlin who has now become one of the most feared Pirates in the world.

This stars all our favourite heroes (?) and villains (?) depending on which side you take - from Edward Teach - Blackbeard, rumoured to be an ancestor of mine, Captain John Coxon RN Governor Woodes Rogers who endevours to rid the Caribbean of all pirates and their lawlessness. The chapters better each other page by page.

This is a great story, well written to be enjoyed by fans of sharpe, Bernard Cornwell and authors who want to entertain us rather than drab writings of depression, takes of abused childhood, gross expressions of crime and murder or" cheery chic lit" - this is FUN as page to page journies over the seas in search of secrets and treasure.

The perfect companion for all historical fiction enthusiasts is the ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKER Calix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

In the early 18th century there was only one thing the rich and mighty valued more than the heady delights of drinking hot chocolate and tea.

Sipping their fashionable beverages from the cool elegance of Chinese porcelain - `white gold' to Europeans who longed to discover the secrets of its manufacture.

The man who could solve the mystery of something as seemingly mundane as fine China would make a fortune but where there's money, there's always skullduggery.

So who better to sail the high seas in search of a vital clue to untold wealth than the lovable and lawless pirate Patrick Devlin?

Devlin's adventures are a captivating cross between the tongue-in-cheek romps of the Pirates of the Caribbean and the all-action dramas of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series.

Keating certainly knows his stuff when it comes to the history of piracy and he imbues his characters with all the brutish and yet irresistible charm we have come to expect from the intrepid adventurers who helped themselves in a world where freedom was limited to those who could afford it.

I have to say that this sequel certainly meets the high standards of plot, interesting characters, seamless flow from scene to scene and brilliantly descriptive wording of The Pirate Devlin, the writing is free from overly nautical terms which I for one wouldn't understand.Although whenever I think of pirates these days Jack Sparrow inevitably comes to mind, Devlin does come across to the reader as a similarly loveable rogue, though it seems to me the author paints him, and pirates in general, in a better light than his Royal Navy adversaries! Were all their captains and admirals uptight twits who deserve ridicule at best, animosity at worst? Maybe, I don't know. Anyway this book is very hard to put down, easy to read, and has for me proven that this genre is well worth exploring.
