It's been a rather big year for those of us in the "pirate" fandom. The finale of Black Sails, the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and now this delightful book. Where the former two disappointed [me] greatly, Scarlet Devil does nothing but SHINE. This book was everything I hoped for and more. This treasure hunt includes elements of the supernatural and Mayan mythology, which was a fun new addition to this series. I approve of the new direction, and like the greedy reader I am I hope there will be more. XD
Kate's exchanges of repartee with her crew, her enemies, and her lover Gabe are to die for, her quips had me cackling constantly as I read this.
It IS quite gritty. Lots of people die in gruesome ways. Its a pirate book, there's supposed to be gratuitous violence. What else would you want or expect?
Also, you really should read Golden Age - A Short Story, the short companion prequel to this tale that explains how Jack Rackham, then Kate, came into possessing the famed red coat cum treasure map. We're robbing the author by only paying 99 cents for it, it's is delightful good pirate fun.
