As I have come to expect from this author we are soon in the thick of the action with this fast based book. We are treated to the faniliar mix of romance and swashbuckling fights with Peter Thornton getting into his regular scrapes.
Although the focus of the novel moves more towards Portuguese affairs, the Sallee Rovers and their xebec craft, which make this series so interesting, are still a strong influence.
In a recent interview the author indicated that this book closes a phase of the series and, if you have been following, it does bring the various plot threads to a closure nicely.
