Summary

Two pirates; sworn enemies. An alliance forged by blood....

Jack Mallory sailed into Carolina waters seeking vengeance upon fellow pirate James Logan, the man responsible for his father’s murder and his mother’s kidnapping. But Jack never expected his well-laid plans to be foiled by a mere child: Logan’s precocious six-year-old daughter, Helen. A deathbed promise to her mother inexorably binds Jack to the child and robs him - at least temporarily - of his revenge against her father.

But the two pirates’ tenuous truce will be tested when a mysterious privateer sets sail to end Logan’s devastation of Carolina’s lucrative sea trade. Will Jack choose to save Helen's father or will he ally with the privateer to at last see justice served for Logan’s crimes against his own parents?

Arrrrgh, a lively nautical tale!

This historical novel, second of the trilogy, is fun to listen to for the way the action unfolds and the way the narrator portrays the well-drawn characters --pirates, rogues, and survivors. A rousing story line with likeable but complicated protagonists, male and female. The prose flows smoothly, the narrator gives it zest. Listen to Book 1 first (The Prodigal), as Book 2 begins right in the middle of the action and you'll want to know what events led up to it. Book 1 is equally well done. You won't want to hit "pause" once you start.
