James L Nelson's The Only Life that Mattered reads as more of a thrilling fiction than any historical account. While all historical inaccuracies and complete fabrications are acknowledged by Nelson, there are still several action scenes so impractical as to render them silly. Additionally, a number of sex scenes would be more appropriate for one of those little romance novels than a story about two of the fiercest female pirates in history. Nelson's knowledge of seamanship is evident throughout, though some of his pirates' expressions read as a little cliche. Overdramatic but good for a quick read and overall a valiant attempt. Three stars.
