Title and Cover: Shark Eater – Cover doesn’t appear to project a high seas adventure
Decker and Callie Hayden are archeologists of some renown who pair up with a salvager, Dax Drake. He has unwittingly stumbled across what may be a sunken galleon from the Spanish fleet. The galleon was shipwrecked after the 1539 hurricane off the Bahama shores. Unfortunately, they uncover more than just a possible treasure. I previewed this book in my #AmReading feature on October 20, 2017. Continue reading “Shark Eater – a Book Review”
Irresistibly 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 masted sailing craft, experiencing much of the same kind of treasure hunting in the Caribbean as did my grandfather in the South Pacific a century earlier. Fortunately for all of us, however, Reisig began fashioning his sea-worthy tales well before he retired from the sea!
In the first book of Reisig’s riveting new collection, 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.
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 – the brutal Spanish, ruthless buccaneers, a pirate king, the lure of Havana, and the women – as fierce in their desires as Caribbean storms.
And then, there was the gold and the emeralds – wealth beyond imagination. But some treasures outlive the men who bury them…
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’ll be glad for the electricity–oil’s expensive!
