Publisher Comments:

A May 2007 Book Sense Pick

“Taltys vigorous history of seventeenth-century pirates of the Caribbean will sate even fickle Jack Sparrow fans. . . . A pleasure to read from bow to stern.”

—Entertainment Weekly

The passion and violence of the age of exploration and empire come to vivid life in this story of the legendary pirate who took on the greatest military power on earth with a ragtag bunch of renegades. Awash with bloody battles, political intrigues, natural disaster, and a cast of characters more compelling, bizarre, and memorable than any found in a Hollywood swashbuckler, Empire of Blue Water brilliantly re-creates the life and times of Henry Morgan and the real pirates of the Caribbean.

William Smith, August 13, 2008 (view all comments by William Smith)
I found the story both too little known and fascinating. I have some stylistic quibbles with the author, like the use of a composite fictional character to make some historical points, but overall I enjoyed the book.
