    An easy and entertaining read that shows how the 17th century Spain and the New World were handled by Spain's corrupt king Ferdinand the III, and how much hunger the actual population suffered. It also shows the rampant corruption of the era.

    Venganza en Sevilla by Matilde Asensi Sequel to "Tierra Firme"

    In this book we find Catalina Solís, also known as Martín Nevárez, surviving an attack from the Dutch pirates in her hometown, Margarita Island (Caribbean) in 1606. Her ship is sank and many of her crew is killed. Her adoptive father, Esteban Nevárez, is taken prisoner to Sevilla where Catalina follows him after making sure her mother, María Chacón, is alive and well. Catalina/Martín arrives in Sevilla too late and promises his father, on his deathbed, to revenge the people responsible for the atrocities: and to kill all four of the Curvo brothers and sisters.

    To implement her vengeance, she utilizes the help of her mother's sister: Clara Peralta. Both were prostitutes before they met their husband/lovers, and currently Clara is the mistress of the Piedramedina Marquis, a rich and prominent member of the Seville society. With Clara's help, Catalina decides to take on the Curvo family as Catalina and buys and restores one of the most famous castles in Seville and slowly kills one by one the Curvo family. The book ends with an opening for a sequel.
