Overview

A story collection with ten thrilling adventure yarns, edited by Rayne Hall.

Pirate stories are exciting. They give us a taste of adventure and daring, of freedom and romance. While historical reality was unglamorous and brutal, in fiction, we enter a world of excitement, set sail for a great adventure, enjoy freedoms outside the confines of society and law, fight on the side of righteous rebels or defeat the villains and find buried treasure.

This story collection contains ten pirate yarns, some spiced with sprinkles of realism, others peppered with fantasy, all seasoned with the salt of adventure. While this is a fiction book for adults, the stories are suitable for older children.

To reflect the authors' individual voices, you will find both American and British words and spellings in this book. Some stories have been previously published in magazines, ezines, story collections and anthologies.

What can I say about this book? I am just amazed how a group of authors like Rayne Hall, Liv Rancourt, and Jonathan Broughton can write such great stories. Rayne Hall knows which stories to put together that can give the reader something they can enjoy. I know that in each of the books that I have read, that contained more than one author, I have found a story that I really enjoyed and a story that was still good but not my favorite. I can honestly say that I am, and will, when the opportunity arises to really let people know that Rayne Hall is someone to follow. Read what is written by Rayne Hall! I have yet to be disappointed!! Jonathan Broughton and Liv Rancourt are noticeably great writers too. I so look forward to reading more from all of the authors in this book. This book is something that I would not fear my children reading as teenagers. They are thrilling and descriptive but not over the top to where you are concerned about what they are reading. I do recommend this book. :)
