Captain Blood

by Rafael Sabatini

I debated giving this 5 stars but decided to limit it to 4. The book is immensely readable and definitely a page turner. That being said, the book stretches plausibility just a few times too many for my tastes. Still, if you are looking for a good swashbuckling tale, I think this deserves to be a classic of the genre; definitely faster pacing and tighter plotting than Dumas.

Author of the Day

A. W. Exley
When A.W. Exley isn't deciphering hieroglyphs or riding her horse sidesaddle, she is thinking up plots for her next best-seller. Nefertiti's Heart is a beautiful mixture of all Exley's passions in life, set in a Steampunk society, featuring a very Egyptian theme. As our Author of the Day, she chats with us about her fascination with Egypt, why she picked an alternate universe for Nefertiti and how she shaped the book.
