Welcome to the good ship Cassandra! She will take you on exhilarating adventure on the high seas of the Carribean, looking for unknown treasures on a Spanish war ship. You will meet her Captain and come to know his ways and why he finds himself surrounded by a crew of unforgetable characters that you are going to love getting to know. And know them you will. This is great stuff that just keeps happening page after page.
I guess in the end, it is what is missing from this story that I just cannot stop thinking about. Port Royal and all it's people, not to mention Mantanceros and what surely must have transpired there. These stories, sadly remain untold and their characters are summarilly dismissed. I do so wish I could have gotten to know them and the events that occurred while the Cassandra was at sea.
That folks would have been a truly great book! Such remains our loss.
