Book Summary of The Guardship

Book One of the Brethren of the Coast trilogy, featuring Thomas Marlowe

With the bounty from his years as a pirate - a life he intends to renounce and keep forever secret - Thomas Marlowe purchases a fine Virginia plantation from a beautiful young widow, Elizabeth Tinling. Soon afterwards, while defending her honour, he kills the favourite son of one of the colony's most powerful families in a duel. But in a clever piece of manoeuvring he manages to win command of the Plymouth Prize, the colony's decrepit guardship, and is charged with leading the King's sailors in bloody pitched battle against the cutthroats who infest the waters off Virginia's shores.

A threat from his illicit past appears, however, as an old pirate enemy plots to seize the colony's wealth, forcing Marlowe to choose between losing all - or facing the one man he fears.

I like novels with heroes (not really the right word for Thomas Marlowe, but he is the main protagonist) with a dark history. I also can't resist a story which takes me to places I can't physically travel to, i.e. the past.With The Guardship, James Nelson introduces the reader to a character fill...

Steve January 08, 2012 review from Goodreads

A really rather good historical fiction novel set in colonial America (Virginia) around 1700. Easy to read, not too heavy on the detail it grips you from the outset and doesn't let up. Some reviewers describe this as maritime fiction, but the characters are on land as much as they are on ship whi...

Hyeronimus January 15, 2012 review from Goodreads

Un bellissimo libro di avventure marinaresche!Qui non c'è un'approfondita introspezione psicologica dei personaggi, ma l'azione è sempre protagonista, non c'è un attimo di tregua, non ci sono cadute di tensione, l'adrenalina è costantemente sopra il livello di guardia e costa fatica abbandonare l...

Bonsaiforlife October 20, 2010 review from Goodreads

Pirates in Virginia. This book was full of adventure and surprises. Though its story was told more on land than on the open seas. There were a few interesting parts and it kept me reading. I enjoyed the book and will read the next one in the series. I did like the different view since this was ba...
