Isabella's Creole heritage is a mix of African, English, and Spanish blood. Her dead mother's prophesy was that she would be a leader of people and drive the Spanish oppressors from the Caribbean. Is Isabella's ancestry part of the key to her destiny?
Female pirates, though rare, did exist, and the Pirate of Panther Bay pays tribute to the women who were strong enough to go toe-to-toe with men in combat, and to attack ships on the Spanish trade route in search of treasure, and in defiance of the oppressive colonial regime.
SR Staley excels at creating a strong, yet human, female protagonist, both in the Panther Bay series and in his thriller St. Nic, Inc.
Isabella's life may never be easy, but she rises to every challenge.
The book starts out when Isabella, the captain of the pirate ship "Marèe Rouge," is attempting to capture the "Ana Maria." When the "Ana Maria" is destroyed due to a mysterious explosion, one of the prisoners is discovered to be an emissary from the king of Spain to Viceroy Rodriguez, the officer in charge of "El Morro," the Spanish Prison. While she, Jean-Michael, and her boat swain, Mr. Stiles, are discussing what went wrong, the prisoner, Juan Carlos de Santa Ana., is brought in. After a series of verbal duels, they came to realize that the prisoner was not just a prisoner, but a man with a cunning wit. Then, on their way back to Panther Bay, they are visited by Captain Yellowjacket of "The Wasp." He is a trickster and traitor "playing both sides for fools." When they arrive at Panther Bay, there is a mutiny led by Mr. Stiles. After the mutiny, Isabella and Jean-Michael find themselves washed up on shore injured and alone. Isabella, The Pirate of Panther Bay and her lieutenant escape, Spanish imprisonment, take back her ship, and stopped falling in love with Juan Carlos de Santa Ana just after six months of losing her former lover. Can she do all this while fulfilling the prophecy of her mother, ridding the Spanish Main of the Spanish?
"The Pirate of Panther Bay" is expertly written by S.R. Stanley and is a unique book with an old theme. The author makes use with mainly English, some Spanish, and some French for originality and to accentuate the characters. This book is for ages 13 and up. Its themes are pirates, ships, and romance. If you are looking for an expertly written, unique, and original pirate-themed book, then this is book for you.
