Review

"Pirates of the Caribbean for adults."
-L. Fitzgerald

"Tomerlin's novel takes our fictitious notion of what piracy was and keelhauls it completely. A story of what piracy really might have been, all the blood and gore included."
-Words That Stay Book Review

"This is a complex and no-holds barred pirate tale. It includes a somewhat twisted love story, and a whole lot of grit. And finally, FINALLY, a heroine who is a lady, yet truly tough as nails!"
-Julia DeBarrioz, author of Cazadora

"This is most definitely NOT your typical pirate kidnaps girl and they fall in love story!"
-A Book Junky's Obsession

"Game of Thrones on the High Seas!"
-S. Bogden

"Not your average pirate captive story...challenged my pop culture notions of Caribbean piracy..."
-Careful Consumer

"Surprisingly rich pirate novel"
-Louise L.C.

Gory, raw and and gripping with action! Took on a similar brutal telling of pirates in the way George R.R. Martin told of the brutal realities of royalty and war. Very well written and while they are constantly telling the story from different characters perspectives it was still very engaging and easy to follow. There is no happy endings but it doesn't matter because you still want to know what is going to happen next.

This is the best pirate adventure series I have read. I don't understand anybody giving this story less than 5 stars. A few of the 3 star reviews say it was dark, bloody, or gory. Well yes. But what do you expect from pirates? This is a great story with likable characters. It's an adventure where you feel like you're part of it. A story where you forget that you're reading a book. A book that when it is over you are left really pissed off because it just ended. Something that you were just so totally vested in and are left yelling NOOOOOOO! I can't wait for book 3. You won't be dissappointed!

This book surprised me. It starts out like many somewhat cliched pirate romance stories do - a young woman is kidnapped by pirates and held against her will on their ship until she accepts her new life. But after that beginning it transforms into something quite different...

The chapters are told from the perspectives of different characters, of which there are five:

Katherine - the captured young woman, formerly the wife of a merchant captain.

Griffith - an old pirate captain, dreaming of a quiet retirement in the countryside where he can raise a family. Not having a wife to complete this picture, he, in typical pirate fashion, steals one for himself.

Livingstone - the sadistic, hard-as-nails ship quartermaster.

Nathan - an idealistic young American man who has run away from his wealthy family to live a life on the high seas.

Thatcher - the ship's surgeon, also being held aboard the ship and made to work for the pirates against his will.

There are a few other characters who get their own chapters, but they are quite minor. The result of the interplay between these five characters is a more richly textured story than the captain and captured woman back and forth I was expecting. That being said, I do wish we had had a bit more time inside Katherine's head, as she is the character that undergoes the most transformation, and at times that transformation seems a little rushed.

Something that also surprised me, and challenged my pop culture notions of Caribbean piracy was the democratic nature of the pirate crew. They vote on major decisions and the captain is elected. After a bit of hunting around online, I found that this aspect of the book is grounded in actual historical research, which was nice to see.

This series is fantastic! Engrossing...I couldn't put it down... i read the first book before I knew it was a series. Loved it so much I immediately went out and bought next book and devoured it. Story is very detailed and not for overly sensitive people who love happy go lucky stories. There is blood and violence and a lot of it. There are strong characters and a fantastic writer like Matt Tomerlin just sucks you into this swashbuckling world...impatiently waiting for horizon!!! Thanks Matt for entertaining me like only Stephen King has been able to do so far:)

I had a hard time digesting this book. The writing is very good, the descriptions of the ocean and the ships are well done, but this is a VIOLENT book. The main character changes from a woman who has some empathy to a woman who hates, kills, and cares little for the consequences of her actions on anybody but herself. The development of her character is wonderfully done, but the character she turns into is awful. Don't read this book before you go to bed unless you want to have some pretty dark dreams.

With the ease of creating an ebook these days you never know if a new author is really good or not worth your time. Matt tomerlin is really good. Devils fire is a rich intricate tale with well developed characters, some you will love and some you will hate. Add to that the dose of history from some of the more well known pirates like Blackbeard and the men who fight them. The main character Katherine Lindsay is strong, smart, sexy and very unpredictable. Altogether a good read, worth your time.

You know when a book is simply incredible when you're thinking about it constantly. This book was absolutely amazing and my mind was on nothing else. It tells the tale of a woman whose unfortunate circumstances cause her to end up on a ship full of pirates. Tomerlin has unflinchingly written this novel with an interesting and attention-grabbing plot. It contains some scenes that are somewhat gruesome but they simply add to the irresistibility of turning the pages. The main character is extremely admirable and Tomerlin easily created a sense of each of the characters highlighting their unique individualities.
This honestly is the best book I read in a long while and I cannot wait for the next in the series to be released. This is a rare gem and I am so glad I found it. Now I'm off to buy Tomerlin's novella for my kindle!
