In 1685, Irish physician Peter Blood is happily settled in a small English town when the rebellion of the Duke of Monmouth interrupts the peace. After saving the life of a wounded nobleman who turns out to be a rebel, Blood is charged with treason and sentenced to ten years as an indentured slave in the Caribbean colonies.

On the islands, Blood is recognized for his knowledge as a physician, and thus he develops a romance with a young lady. But their attachment is ill-fated, as her father is the owner of Blood’s servitude. When Spaniards attack the colony, Blood and his fellow convicts take advantage of their victory celebration to steal their ship, sailing off to become the boldest and most fearless pirates on the Spanish Main.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jeffrey | 2/13/2014

    " This book was a lot of fun, with true swashbuckling style - not just in the characters' actions but in the prose itself. I found I had Errol Flynn in my head not just as Captain Blood, but as the narrator as well. Great action scenes and old tyme romance. I did feel that the last couple chapters became a bit confused and repetitive, but not so much as to impact my overall enjoyment of the book. "

    " I read this one when I was about 14-15 years old. In my own opinion this is a very well written book, with a story line that keeps you glued to the novel :) "
