The Devil's Fire By: Matt Tomerlin

A few years back, I read a book about pirates and was hooked.  I enjoy a good pirate tale.  This book was a free Kindle book from Amazon.  I jumped on it and between historical and political books, started to read it.

I truly enjoyed this book.  It had all the makings of a good novel; adventure, sex, murder, pirates, treasure & love.  The story take place when pirates ruled the seven seas.  Captain Jonathan Griffith of the "Harbinger" ship and his crew seize the cargo of the "Lady Katherine"  including Katherine herself after they kill her husband.  Katherine is a lady in every sense of the word.  She witnesses the slaying of her husband and is furious with the men responsible for it.  She is taking "prisoner" on the Harbinger.


The captain tells her that her diseased husband gave away her hiding place when they board.  He does this to try to make Katherine hate her former husband. Once she becomes acclimated to sea life and after biting off one of the captain's ears, she starts to earn her sea legs by splicing rope.  She makes friends.  And eventually gives in to carnal desires with the captain. 

The characters were developed, the book flowed smoothly and kept me engaged. The book is fool of extremely gorey details of death and dismemberment.  The end of the book was a cliff hanger leading to the second book.
