Dr. Peter Blood is arrested and sentenced to hang for treating a wounded rebel. Instead of death, he is sent to Barbados as a slave. When the Spanish attack the port city of Bridgetown, he and his fellow slaves capture the Spanish ship and set out to sea, where he becomes the notorious pirate, Captain Blood. With battles on sea and on land, daring escapes, sword duels to the death, a touch of romance, and a magnificent score by Jeffrey Gage, Captain Blood is a swashbuckling adventure on a very grand scale!

    " Fantastic read! Captain Blood is a magnanimous gentleman who rules the seas - the Robin Hood of pirates. Epic read, great writing style, truly engaging. A must read. "

    " I loved Sabatini's swashbuckling, good guy, bad situation epic. Captain Blood is a fictional compilation of several well known pirates a provides a nice escape to Caribbean. "

    " Peter Blood is an Irish physician in England in the 1600's when he is arrested for treason and sent to Barbados as a slave. A very interesting tale as he becomes caught up in the world of naval battles and piracy. "

    " Captain Blood is THE MAN ! A soldier, a doctor, a pirate, a lover, and even a politician. He does it all, which makes for a very fun, lively and interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 3/11/2011

    " The best romantic pirate novel. Is about as authentic as Pirates of the Caribbean (that is, not at all)-but far more sophisticated. A swashbuckling good read, if you can get through the really melodramatic bits to see how great this story really is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don | 1/13/2011

    " A wonderful story of a cruel injustice that makes an outlaw of a gentleman, a dauntless damsel, Caribbean governors representing their European monarchs, and bold buccaneers. A delight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 12/29/2010

    " Rollicking, fast paced fun. My only complaints are that i found it too long for the type of story it is and the language distractingly flowery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhaegar | 12/24/2010

    " Epic adventure; pretty similar to Scaramouch. :)
    The 2 are great examples of what a man should be. "

About the Author
Author Rafael Sabatini

Rafael Sabatini (1875–1950) was the son of two opera singers. Schooled in England and Switzerland, he would learn many languages. His first job was as a translator, and he would later translate for British Intelligence during World War I. He began writing historical romances for fun, and after publishing his first story in the mid 1890s, produced a new book every year for the next twenty five years.
