Book Description

Pirates of Savannah : The Trilogy includes "Sold in Savannah", "Battle Rats" and "The Rise of April", The trilogy is a historical fiction novel about the birth of liberty in the south. It takes place during pre-Revolutionary War age, truly a fascinating time in history that has been greatly ignored by other authors. At its heart, it is a tale of prisoners, refugees and society’s casts offs all joining together to escape from government tyranny and discover a path to liberty. Find out how a group of oppressed colonists gain the courage to start defying authority and begin planning a revolution from British control. It is a gritty, vivid account of what life was like in the 1700's and is loaded with real, obscure historical events that time erased and buried. Follow the group of freedom seekers as their adventure takes them through Savannah, the Florida Keys, St. Augustine, Charles Towne and Cape Fear, as well as many other towns of the Low Country. Most importantly it is a fun read loaded with action.

Please note: There are two versions of this novel, one for adults and one that has been adapted to be the first in a trilogy of novels for young adults. If you spend your booty on this, you're buying the adult version, yarrr.

5.0 out of 5 stars History and Freedom and Pirates January 1, 2011
Format:Paperback
Honestly, I could point out some editing lapses, but in the realm of self-publishing that goes with the territory, and it doesn't take away from the story at all. It's got action, good characters, hot sex, pirates, and a message of simple, personal freedom. The descriptions of 18th century life and technology make it worth the read almost by themselves. One can see the American Revolution looming over the horizon, but not imminent enough to be part of the story line in itself, just close enough to add a little color.

We see traditional and historic outcasts, ne'er do wells, and hostile natives in a different light. That light might be a little too bright in a few cases, whitewashing some blemishes, but for the most part it makes them human and decent without turning them into caricatures. Their goals are our goals, to live our lives our own way, trade fairly and honestly, and to be left alone by the predators in uniforms of all colors of the rainbow. The enemies are human as well, both those truly and irredeemably evil and those who are merely weak in character, avaricious, and base.

The sex, violence, and grubby filth of the era border on graphic, but none of it comes off crass or gratuitious. It all feels realistic and vivid. It moves the plot along at a lively pace, as does just about every scene. I had trouble putting it down, even after I was finished. Even the appendix documenting what places, events, and characters were truly historic and those that were literary props was fascinating to a history buff like me.

A Diamond in the Rough!
This book scores a five for novelty, a four for character interest, but a one for language and style. There is a naivete in the storytelling itself, which mixed with interesting historical detail, allows for certain characters to come into being. After reading of some of these characters' shared suffering, and seeing their different personalities emerge, I was invested in knowing more of their future, the telling of which is often pure fun. Now, the style and language. The reader is hit over the head time and again with intrusive, gratuitous statements reminding the reader of the need to fight for freedom, and it feels rather klunky, such as "THE GOVERNMENT IS FORCE!" This theme is repeated so often one is ripped out of the wonderful story of pirates and reminded the author has a point to make. So while the treasure in the chest may have a few corroded coppers, there are also a few uncut diamonds glittering among them.

5.0 out of 5 stars History, Love, Greed, Slavery....great read August 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Based in the 1700's, life in England. Details how a few men were able to leave prison on a ship bound for America. The men find out they are indentured servants for at least 5 years after stepping foot on US soil.....the author brings the characters and surrounding info come to life. He will include things one would not even think about, smells, sanitary conditions, etc of the time.

There are some plot twists I did not expect so I don't want to write them here. If you enjoy history in 1700's America, stories of immigrants and what life would have been like you will certainly enjoy reading this book.

I found it very interesting, kept my interest all the way though. Interesting how the author ends the books with facts/fiction per chapter.

Explicit language and situations, not for under 18 years of age.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lacks nautical and historical knowledge April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is very poorly written, even for teenagers. The writer confuses winches and wenches, complement and compliment, and shows that he has no knowledge of what careening a ship entails. I admit that I did not read all the way to Savannah, but I had all I could take of his nonsense when I quit. The author states that the crew raised the anchor with the capstan which worked "like a wooden wench". He also said something about the ship's "compliment", meaning the crew and officers. I read too many good sea stories to waste time on this muck.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pirates of Savannah January 19, 2012
By Dave
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am new to Amazon and Kindle and obviously placed too much score on the star ratings when ordering. This star studded book is absolute rubbish and in my view is deserving of less than one star. It is badly written, factually incorrect and boring. The author clearly has little perception of accents or dialects, and should either get them right or leave them out completely. The sort of book that, as you wade through it, you continually hope that it will get better but it never does. I managed less than a quarter before I gave up.

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of your dime and a minute of your time June 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"These government prisons were worse than hell and Patrick resided in the most infamous of them all. When he was young, Patrick's father read to him the illegal papers of the Enlightenment Doctrines. These ideas were radical and talked of such things as a man being born with rights and that these rights were not bestowed on him from king or church. His father told him, 'As history has always shown, any government program will be run far worse than the private market would."

This is the paragraph, 3% into The Pirates of Savannah trilogy, where I was convinced that I had wasted my time and money. The prose strives to be erudite and witty but falls just short of amateur. The story takes a back seat to Lupo's historically inaccurate and self-involved Ayn Rand-esque political evangelism, replete with a short treatise on the historical mistreatment to the Southern States in "The War of Southern Secession".

Honestly, there's hardly a sentence in the book I found believable or thoughtfully researched, from the pages and pages dedicated to describing the vomit in the protagonist's cell to the fact that you don't learn his name until well into the first chapter, being referred to as "this man" for almost the entire setup of the storyline. The author even apologizes in his prologue for how the characters' dialogue is misconstrued because he found research into dialects of the time period to be "impossible". It is not impossible, the research was lazy.

This reads less like an eighteenth-century vignette on the daily strife of Anglo colonists on the American continent and more like "That One Email From Glenn Beck the Night He Fell off the Wagon".

I am going to assume most of the history was real. If it is, then it was really a violent time. It did give a clear idea of the times leading up to the American Revolution.
