Publisher's Summary

His father killed by the British and his home burned, young Tatton Chantry left Ireland to make his fortune and regain the land that was rightfully his. Schooled along the way in the use of arms, Chantry arrives in London a wiser and far more dangerous man. He invests in trading ventures, but on a voyage to the New World his party is attacked by Indians and he is marooned in the untamed wilderness of the Carolina coast. It is in this darkest time, when everything seems lost, that Chantry encounters a remarkable opportunity....

Suddenly all his dreams are within reach: extraordinary wealth, his family land, and the heart of a Peruvian beauty. But first he must survive Indians, pirates, and a rogue swordsman who has vowed to see him dead.

Terrible narrator.

The story was solid but the narrator ruined it for me. I could not finish the book.

Great swashbuckling fun!

Pirates, treasure, intrigue, secret societies, swordfights, kings, a queen and classic Louis L'Amour story telling. Combine that with great narration and we have one of the best audio books I have heard.

Enjoyable

Fun and entertaining read. Not his best book but still worthwhile. 4 stars because the narration was not my favorite but grew on me.

Good story and performance…for the most part.

This story meanders quite a bit, but still held my attention.

The performance was also good. My only gripe was that the narrator rarely changed voices with different characters’ dialogue. Because of this, when there was extensive dialogue back-and-forth, sometimes it was difficult to follow who said what.
