Rafael Sabatini (29 April 1875 - 13 February 1950) was an Italian/English author of romance and adventure novels. He was a prolific writer and produced a new book almost every year, maintaining a great deal of popularity throughout his career, but the titles that secured his reputation were Scaramouche and the Captain Blood novels. He died on February 13, 1950 in Switzerland.

“One wonders if there is another storyteller so adroit at filling his pages with intrigue and counter-intrigue, with danger threaded with romance, with a background of lavish colour, of silks and velvets, of swords and jewels” (Daily Telegraph)
“Sabatini's stories abound with drama and melodrama, action and excitement and brilliant colour, as well as minute period detail. No writer, not Scott, nor Dumas, nor Stevenson, has brought the past to life more vividly or accurately.” (George Macdonald Fraser)
Absolutely. I loved the first Captain Blood book and this is more great stories.
I was worried that I wouldn't be as interested in this as the original book, but I was pleasantly surprised.
