If you like pirates, betrayal, nasty antagonists, honour, brothers fighting, and general naval escapades, this is the book for you.

Not S.J.A Turney's best work - the best book of the series is undoubtedly Interregnum (https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01HRUBM16/). Since reading that though I've been an avid reader of the whole Tales of the Empire series - and find each uniquely compelling despite them being standalone books with new characters each time. The continual links back to the previous characters and their heritage creates a cohesive universe and adds to the excellent writing style.

Very much worth a read.

Have always enjoyed the military books by S J Turney, especially the Marius Mule series, but this book did not grab me in the same way. The characters did not leap out and seem fully rounded and the plot seemed very slow.
I ended up by skimmimg over the last half of the book just to get to the end.

I started with the first book by S.J Turney and I found it so engrossing , that I had to continue with the second and third Dark Empress .
I enjoyed the book enormously .
Highly recommend it to any one who likes any of the books by S.J. Turney .

Turner is a good writer. Each of his books is different from the last. They seem to have cracked the typos as well

Disappointing from this author. Have read many of his books and really enjoyed them. Not this one. Very lightweight unconvincing plot and characterisation.
