4.0 out of 5 stars A rollicking good read, 6 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Mistress of the Sea (Hardcover)
I essentially devoured this book in two sessions. I'd broken my foot, was in a lot of discomfort and was in dire need of some pure escapism - and "Mistress of the Sea" did the trick.

It may be set in Tudor times, but this is not your typical Tudor novel. If you read historical fiction to learn something whilst being taken on a fun journey, then this should tick all the boxes for you. It's pure adventure on the high seas and romance rolled into one, but it's also an insight into a relatively unknown aspect of Sir Francis Drake's ventures in the New World.

And can I say that the opening scene of the book is one of the most gripping and unusual I've ever come across? As soon as you read that, you know you're in a safe pair of hands. I won't give anything away - you'll have to read it yourself, but I promise you your heart will soon be in your mouth...
