5.0 out of 5 stars Swashbuckling pirate adventure starring "Cat Royal" - set in 1792., 24 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Black Heart of Jamaica (Cat Royal) (Hardcover)
This is the 5th Cat Royal adventure so far. You don't really need to have read the others to enjoy this as you are given enough background to appreciate Cat's adventurous spirit and her experiences so far. I picked this up on impulse and haven't read any of the others, but I'll keep a lookout for them from now on.

Brilliantly written, there's great pace to Cat's Jamaica story. Cat's had a theatre background (Drury Lane, London) and in Black Heart of Jamaica she joins a travelling theatre in Philadelphia headed for the Caribbean islands. Cat's realised that to make her way in the world she needs a respectable career and acting is what appeals to her most. Jamaica and the other islands are under threat of slave rebellion however, (something Cat supports wholeheartedly) and the Caribbean turns out to be the perfect place for the adventurous Cat to be headed.... Never a dull moment when Cat's about...

A rip-roaring unputdownable read, this book also teaches about the history of slavery in America and the wrongs of race discrimination.

The earlier Cat Royal Books are:

The Diamond of Drury Lane - Cat in London
Cat Among the Pigeons - Cat goes to school
Den of Thieves - Cat in Paris (revolutionary France)
Cat O'Nine Tails - Cat at sea
