Pirate stories, when well-done, can be great fun, whether it be a classic like Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped or a modern story like this one. In typical Tim Powers style, this book covers much more ground than a simple tale of pirates on the Spanish Main, adding magic that’s one of the best depictions of African-influenced sympathetic magic that fits perfectly with the novels Caribbean setting.
