#ThrowbackThursday – the Caribbean Gold series – Book Reviews

#ThrowbackThursday on It's Book Life blogRenee began the Throwback Thursday meme on her blog, “It’s Book Talk” to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books published over a year ago. Sounded like a good reason to join! My TT posts will not come from current ARCs or new releases. Means I’ll be going back over some of my oldies but goodies, some of my favorite stories and authors you might not have previously experienced. Hopefully, you’ll find either a story or author that interests you and you’ll check them out!

Originally posted January 2015.

The Treasure of Tortuga was originally published in 2001 as the first half of a novel called Brothers of the Sword/Children of Time.” It was my introduction to the author Michael Reisig and I’ve been a fan ever since. With encouragement from his friends, Reisig rewrote and republished the original novel split in volumes. The Treasure of Tortuga became Volume 1 of the series called Caribbean Gold.

Book Blurbs:

Volume 1 of the Caribbean Gold series

The Treasure of Tortuga draws you into an era of dark-hearted men, captivating women, and a seafaring adventure so real you’ll taste the salt spray. The year is 1668. Englishman Trevor Holte and the audacious freebooter Clevin Greymore, sail from the Port of London for Barbados and the West Indies. They set out in search of adventure and wealth, but the challenges they encounter are beyond their wildest dreams…some treasures outlive the men who bury them…”

Volume 2 of the Caribbean Gold series

The Treasure of Time – “In the spring of 1980, three adventurers set out from Key West in search of a lost treasure on the Isle of Tortuga, off the coast of Haiti. Equipped with an ancient parchment and a handful of clues, they embark on a journey…discover the power of friendship and faith, and the unflagging capacity of spirit, and come to realize that, some things are forever…”

Volume 3 of the Caribbean Gold series

The Treasure of Margarita – “Historical and modern adventure, sizzling romance, and Caribbean intrigue… The Treasure of Margarita spans three centuries of high adventure. Beginning in 1692, in the pirate stronghold of Port Royal, it carries the reader across the Southern Hemisphere in a collage of rip-roaring escapades. Then it soars forward five generations, into modern day intrigue and romance in Key West and the Caribbean. A staggering fortune of Spanish black pearls and a 300-year-old letter with a handful of clues set the course that Travis Christian and William Cody embark upon. But it’s not an easy sail…”

Caribbean Gold series by Michael ReisigIrresistibly drawn to tales of treasure hunting, swashbuckling pirates, sailing ships, their courageous crews and the bawdy women who entertained them, I discovered “Brothers of the Sword/Children of Time” written by Michael Reisig in 2001. Envisioning a modern day Stanley McShane, off on another adventure, I witnessed my grandfather’s travels again through Reisig’s historical 17th century multi-masted sailing craft, experiencing much of the same kind of treasure hunting in the Caribbean, as did my grandfather in the South Pacific more than a century later.

Caribbean Gold series - Treasure of Tortuga by Michael ReisigIn the first volume of Reisig’s riveting Caribbean Gold series, The Treasure of Tortuga, you are drawn back in time, to an era of dark-hearted men, captivating women, and a seafaring adventure so real you’ll taste the salt spray. My full review here.

We come to love these raucous men, their love for each other, and their chivalrous devotion to their ladies. Reisig weaves his storytelling in such compellingly descriptive manner that even were it not your normal read, you’d be glad for the electricity–oil’s expensive! It is 1668 when Englishman Trevor Holte and freebooter Clevin Greymore, sail for Barbados and the West Indies. They set out in search of adventure and wealth, but the brutal Spanish have other ideas. There are ruthless buccaneers, a pirate king, and gold–but they may have to bury it and come back for it later!

Caribbean Gold series-The Treasure of Time by Michael ReisigIn the second volume of the Caribbean Gold series, Reisig pricks that sixth sense with The Treasure of Time. After you viewed the movie “Ghost,” did you believe? The chills begin early in Caribbean Gold – The Treasure of Time. We love stories of deja  vu–probably because we’ve all had…those…experiences not easily explained away. Haven’t we been here before–know this person? A connection–it’s there–palpable, real.  My full review here.

The summer of 1980 finds Travis and Cody in Key West, Florida, trading gibes as their two-year friendship continues to cement in trust and brotherhood. There is something familiar about each other. Cody is a fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants pilot–if it has wings, he can fly it, better than Travis, and Travis considers himself an accomplished pilot. They both share a love for the sea and often sail to the Marquesas or the Tortugas. They meet a man in a bar called the Green Parrot who relays a riveting tale of the treasure of Tortuga.

The three adventurers agree to set off on a hunt for the Spanish treasure of Tortuga (now called Tortue). Can they follow the ancient parchment cipher and the clues to the golden treasure hidden centuries before?

Caribbean Gold - The Treasure of Margarita by Michael ReisigIn the third volume of the Caribbean Gold series, The Treasure of Margarita, Travis Christian has been aware of misty visions, scenarios played out, key words or thoughts–but this time the messages make sense following the discovery of a 300-year-old map key. He and his buddy William Cody begin a quest to find the Spanish black pearls his five times ancestor hid in 1692 in the pirate enclave of Port Royal. The pirate Red Legs Greaves looted the Isla Margarita of the black pearls. As fate would have it, the pearls are well hidden for a later, safe return. The return never happened, but a map was made and secreted away. When the treasure is really fantastic, however, word seems to leak out attracting the stupid bad to the mafia worst. The plot begins a race to the finish–from “uh oh” to “oh no”. There are no dull moments in a Reisig novel!

All subsequent novels after Brothers of the Sword/Children of Time were offered for read and review. I love this author’s descriptive style and his imagination. He has also written seven in The Road to Key West series, as well as sci-fi, including one of my favorites, The Hawks of Kamalon. His riveting action-adventures always carry a strong theme of friendship, loyalty, and triumph over evil.

A number one best-selling author, Michael Reisig books are clean, fun, fast-paced, and heartily recommended at five stars. Look for these and others on Amazon.

Michael ReisigAuthor - Michael ReisigThe Author: “After high school and college in Florida, Michael Reisig relocated to the Florida Keys. He established a commercial diving business, got his pilot’s license, and traveled extensively throughout the southern hemisphere, diving, treasure hunting, and adventuring.” Michael is a former newspaper editor, publisher and award-winning columnist. He is an Amazon best selling novelist. He and his lady live in the mountains of Arkansas where he hunts, fishes, and writes–prolifically!  He admits that a great many of the situations and the characters in his novels are authentic, but nothing makes a great read like experienceRead my recent author interview here. ©2017 Virginia Williams

Happiness for a moment with you....

I'm glad I learned to express my thoughts clearly and everyone loves to read them. Sometimes it takes a lot of thinking power to think about the surroundings. Someone who likes it, someone who enjoys it, appreciates that he is writing very well. Reading and commenting on the post I wrote would give me a lot of bullshit and I would get new ideas to write new ones. I'm really glad I got your response.
