    Loved it! Great story about all kinds of pre-judged people

    I loved this book because it showed a side to 'outcast' people that was interesting and funny. The narrator, Crockett, is an awesome character, being an old sea salt / Papa. His humor is great and his perspective on life is well thought out. I felt this to be a complex book that did manage to tell a lot of different stories that were weaved around a central plot - the mystery of Annalea. The code of honor among the community was great - like a utopia of so-called 'miscreants'. Overall, it is a very unique, cohesive, and entertaining story. Can't wait to read the next one!

    Not bad, but not great either

    This wasn't a bad book, but it wasn't real great either. I'm not sue how to review it, it didn't really seem to be about much. There are a lot of little things that happen, which you could categorize as subplots, but there wasn't on real main plot or storyline. It felt jumbled and disjointed at times, but I read all 650+ pages so I suppose it entertained me enough to finish it.

    Good read, but a bit tedious.

    Upon attacking a ship, the piratical first mate discovers a girl-child in one of the cabins. Contrary to their stated custom, the child is not killed. Almost whimsically,the captain allows the girl to come with them for potential ransom. The captain has set up an isolated island for their "off-season", which is populated by a variety of people that have been taken prisoner and given the offer to stay. The community is pretty egalitarian, the captain splits the spoils of their attacks equally between his raiders, the islanders, and himself. The story is primarily about how the girl grows up and becomes an integral part of their community, as told by the first mate, Crockett. As the story is told by him, it often seems to be about him. Indeed, there is quite a bit of liscentuous behavior-- drunkenness, bawdiness, and drunken bawdiness! There is an element of foreboding as Crockett visits the "nearby" islands, trading for necessary goods that the islanders don't get "naturally" from pirating, and to make inquiries about his attempts to find the girl's kin. On his last trip, the town's official is seen talking to two men who look quite out of place, to Crockett's eye. Indeed, they are. The island is attacked by the British navy, and these two men are amidst the leadership of the attack! Crockett's spying reveals that one has the same surname as the girl, but curiously, he wants her dead! The pirates escape and then regroup. The captain and first mate decide the girl is at risk, and must be returned to England. After some adventures, we know Crockett is in England, talking to a young man about the girl, but we don't know why, as the book ends.

    By the end of the book, I was skimming the sex scenes, because they didn't add anything to the adventure. Actually, it seems as if this book had been tightened up a bit, it would have been a better read. Do we need to know, repeatedly, and in redundant detail, what an angelic person this girl was, or what a brilliant man the captain was? I wish to know what becomes of "me dear, sweet girl," so I bought the sequel.
