The Devil's Fire: A Pirate Adventure Novel - Matt Tomerlin


I came across this book whilst searching for books set in the Caribbean for a reading challenge I'm doing. 

Not usually the type of thing I read, but it sounded good and turned out to be fantastic. I loved. I loved the style of writing, and the story was brilliant. 

Well plotted, rounded full blooded and lively characters. Interesting characters too as even the good guys were a more than a little questionable in their actions (but they're all pirates, so what do you expect?) Even the female lead who started off quite weak and vaid turned into an unbelievably awesome character. There were a decent mix of characters to root for and bad guys to hope would come to a grisly demise. 

The descriptions of the ships, the fights, the ports and the seas and islands were wonderfully vivid. So clear and easy to picture. Some it was very violent and gory and was very well written without being excessive or over the top. 

And a fantastic twist at the end. 

All in all a brilliant book. 

Crossed off a square for my Book Bingo challenge - A book set in the Caribbean
