    Strangely worded, lacking focus

    Let me preface this by saying that I've only read to page 89 of 388 so far. It has taken quite a bit of determination on my part to make it this far. The author is writing in third person and keeps switching how he refers to the main character. That leads to some difficulty when other characters come into play and you're not sure if the "intruder" or 'conniver' is the main character or someone else. Another problem is that it seems like the author is trying too hard to use a lot of different vocabulary (and not all of it well chosen). This leads to a sort of verbose, slightly garbled feeling in the story. Despite all this, I still want to see what happens - which is why I gave two stars rather than just one. I think the hand of a good editor would have really helped hone this story and make it a more enjoyable read.

    The author seemed to be very fond of his Thesaurus ... too fond. He forgot that just because a word is listed as a synonym, doesn't make it appropriate for all meanings.

    Ironically, the characters had extensive vocabularies, including several words I had to look up! Some how I don't think uneducated thugs would use "micturate" for urinate .... or evenurinate for that matter.

    All of this really detracted from the tale. Plot was rather thin -- mostly an excuse for guts and gore.

    Time wasted

    I did not like this novel. The author seems to focus on how low humans can sink to. As a story about pirates, the author should stick to his day job. The height of it for me came when I get to the end and find I would have to buy the next in the series to find out how this ends. This was a free book, not counting my time reading it. Now the author wants me to buy the next one! No thank you. One was quite enough.
