Publisher's Summary

The sun went down behind the storm clouds, and stained them with its blood, then the rain fell upon the ship in torrents. Solid sheets of water hammered the wooden decks so hard that the din drowned the men's voices and blotted out their vision.  

They leave as brothers. They must return as men.  

Famed sailor Hal Courtney is now a man of land and family. But when the King orders him to sail to Madagascar and stop the pirates responsible for looting the finest trading ships of the East India Trading Company and bringing ruin to them all, Hal must travel with his three younger sons on a journey that will shape the young men forever.  

In this swashbuckling adventure of marauders and slave traders, love and treasure, the brothers will face duels, chases, betrayals and battles - and see their fates cast in ways they could never have imagined....  

A Courtney Series adventure - book two in the Birds of Prey trilogy.

narrator was so boring I couldn't finish

Narrator was so boring I couldn't finish. Not my style. I found the language too.... cumbersome? too something. Can't quite put my finger on it.

Not the best

In this novel there is more soap opera than in the others I have read. Usually Wilbur pulls you along with surprises and twists but in this one I became irritated by the plodding “and now this is going to happen next” plot stages and often jumped forward to miss the predictable and often depressing event’s
