    A Unique and Compelling Historical Pirate Adventure!

    First, I feel it important to note that "Pirates of Savannah" is quite different from the books I write as well as those I typically read. That said...I loved it! Mr. Lupo does an excellent job of blending rich and fascinating historical detail with fictional characters and elements that keep the story moving. I can honestly say that I have never read a book even remotely this cleverly woven. Indeed, it was so well done in that respect that I had to read the afterward explaining what parts of the book were fictional and which were fact. The book follows the life and adventures of Patrick Willis, an Englishman who suffers for his father's debt, ultimately coming "across the pond" to Savannah, Georgia. Through (mostly) Patrick's eyes, the reader gets an intimate knowledge of the many hardships a person faced in that particular day and age. By the end of the book, all I wanted was for Patrick to overcome those challenges. Mr. Lupo really makes the reader root for his hero! Some parts of the book were difficult to read only because of the level of detail. And by that, I mean that the depiction of the harshness and crudeness of life in the 18th century was so well done that it made me squirm out of repulsion. This told me again how good the writing was! (I will toss in a caveat that there were some noted grammatical errors, but the story was so good that they didn't make an impact on my rating). In the end, this book is both an historical "treatise" and a fictional adventure. It contains plenty of intrigue, swashbuckling, wenching and treasure-hunting to satisfy lovers of pirate lore, while sticking true to the facts. It's a story of perseverance...not just of Patrick Willis but of the ideologies upon which the United States of America was formed. Bravo, Mr. Lupo, for bringing this book to fruition!

    Filled with adventure, suspense, intrigue, danger, love and hate, this story is about freedom and the fight for it in a new and dangerous world.

    This is one of the most grounded historical books I have ever read. If you like historical fiction that is accurate and entertaining you will love this book.

    Filled with adventure, suspense, intrigue, danger, love and hate, this story is about freedom and the fight for it in a new and dangerous world.

    Tarrin has an incredible knowledge of history and he has used this knowledge to take the reader to a place and time in history when people bravely fought for the lifestyle we enjoy today.

    I adored the characters, especially April and personally think that the author did a great job in using these people to show us a world not many have had a chance to see.

    I loved this book and hope that Tarrin goes on to write more stories because I really can't wait to read what he might write next.

    Pirates of Savannah is written in a very refreshing style, which brings the 1700s to life. The fiction is woven through with the factual seamlessly. There is so much packed into this: certainly more than the title implies. This doesn't just look at life in Savannah, but covers life across the globe. Everyday people are brought to life in this tale, crafted with subtlety by Tarrin. I definitely recommend reading it! The audio version is a pleasure to listen to, as Tarrin has a very pleasant reading voice.

    I began reading this series expecting to be amused and perhaps mildly entertained, and a few hours later, was pleasantly surprised that it exceeded my expectations in every way. As a history buff, I was probably more likely to enjoy a book such as this, but I was amazed at the depth of content. Tarrin and Ruby crammed this book with details of large and small import, from the accuracy of the living conditions in English debtors' prison, to the composition of the new Savannah colony. Where this story really shines, though, is in the development of the characters. Everyone will enjoy the flamboyant Shamus Red, but the reader will likely be moved by some aspect of the stories of Patrick, the central character, or Isaac, his enormous Jewish friend. Their trials and tribulations make up most of the guts of the story. And no matter your politics, the underlying themes of liberty and freedom are both moving and integral to the development of America. This is an excellent book for any reader, but I especially recommend it for the young adult reader, as it may prove stimulating in so many different ways. And finally, as it is an action-packed tale, it may appeal to you as a good, old-fashioned adventure story. Good reading, you'll enjoy this one.

    I really enjoyed this book. The historical nature makes me want

    I really enjoyed this book. The historical nature makes me want to go and explore Savannah, the author really did his homework! It packs a lot of history into the storyline. The story follows Patrick who goes through some changes over a period of time that include shackles, pirates and kind folks who band together to fight those who are causing them harm. Tarrin loves to write and it shows! Check out his other books for more good reading.

    Thanks Tarrin for a great read!

    Not only did I get a fun, entertaining story with a lot of action and likeable characters, I finished the story with a better understanding of history in the 1700s. The author has definitely done his research. He seamlessly blends the events of that time period and political unrest together with the various characters into an exciting and often enlightening novel. A little bit of everything is to be had within the pages - love, hate, hope, despair, good and evil. Most of all, I love the pirating aspect of this. Always had a soft spot for that! Wonderful setting descriptions and character growth. A very, very enjoyable read!

    Good novel

    Great way to learn the history of our country. Very good writer, kept me turning the pages way into the nights. I just wish I had got this book first as I read the edited verison for youth. Good read for men or women. Very discriptive writer, you will get lost in the pages. Any one who has ever been to Savannah will be amazed how this town was founded. Don't miss out on a good read

    A very enjoyable read!

    For me the United States' history began with the Revolutionary War for Independence. But "Pirates of Savannah" let me into the world of Colonial America, and such a diverse, colorful world it was.

    This novel is well researched and full of arrestingly vivid characters, everyone fascinating in his/her own way, everyone so different from another, people of different races, religions, upbringing, united in a one common desire for freedom and equality.
    A history lesson combined with a fascinating story - what more can one ask?

    This is an incredible and vivid story that does indeed mirror our lives today, with a crashing economy, increasingly over-reaching government, and each person's struggle to survive when life seems dire. The characters are forced to learn to depend on themselves and each other to make it through the daily trails as well as battles, escapes and treachery! I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it to everyone that loves any of the following fiction categories: Historical, Romance, Action/Adventure, Drama. There is something for everyone in this book...

    Not to be confused with

    This should not be confused with other pirates of savanah books. This is a book for young people, not those books for a more mature audience. Its about these kids who try to unravel a mystery involving: obviously pirates, historical artifacts and treasure.
