The Sphinx of Driz
There can be no doubt that this Fantasy Adventure yarn was the best I ever read that highlighted the use of sail from an age of the pirates perspective. I must admit that I was skeptical at first seeing muskets and pistols in a Fantasy-themed book. But the idea grew on me and I quickly accepted the plot and rich story.

Gareth Radnor and Knoll Nebry and Thom Tehidy are good friends whoose village is destroyed by Linyati Slavers. The hatred they have towards the Linyati is carried on to their adult lives. Once Gareth signs on aboard a trading vessel, he invites his friends and Libala, a budding wizard to accompany him. After the captain of the vessel steadfast is slain, Gareth takes command and events turn out in the favor of the crew as he takes a half dozen Linyati vessels as prizes. The loot and booty they contain gain him wealth and power.

I won't summarize any further suffice it to say that the high adventure in this book will keep any reader of Fantasy on the edge of their seats. The style of the book reminded me of Christopher Rowley's Bazil Broketail series. Fast paced with enough plot and character developement to stir the imagination.

My first quibble has to do with the lack of any detailed map showcasing where all of the action took place in the book. Simply put, there were a host of geographical locations attached to cardinal directions that were difficult to follow due to Bunch's not taking the time to construct a map that could/should have been placed in the beginning of the book. As the oceans, seas, islands and landmasses are alluded to with so much frequency in the novel, it would have made reading the book that much easier for the reader. The lack of a chart is surprising as Bunch included one in The Seer King and The Demon King. My last quibble was how Bunch had a tendancy to use too many open-ended paragraphs. When a character would speak, Bunch, instead of keeping the quotations in one or two paragraphs, would use three or four or five. It got annoying and it was a part of his writing style I never understood or liked. He did it more than nay other writer I've read. It is unnecessary, in my opinion. But despite this, I liked the book and I award it Five Stars.

This is one of the better swashbuckling tales of modern vintage. The plot is analgous to the situation in England in the late 16th century. Saros is nominally at peace with the hostile Linyati empire, while pirates from Saros plunder Linyati ships and cities.
Gareth Radnor, driven into the Saros capital of Ticao as a teenager when Linyati raiders destroy his town, is sent to sea after a youthful escapade antagonizes a powerful lord. Events lead him into a position as captain of a pirate ship, the piracy being tolerated when it brings large revenues to the crown. Raids on the Linyati uncover many secrets about the enemy and establish various allies (the enemy of my enemy is my friend). Secrets are also revealed in Ticao.
Overall, it is an action filled novel that holds the reader's interest, with numerous battles and adventures, some on land and some on sea. I would give it a PG-13 rating based on sex and violence contained in the story.

Great read! Fast action, good character development, and not too gory. This is a somewhat romantic pirate tale and very enjoyable!

Was a good read, I enjoyed all the sea action, being a mariner. Chris is an excellent author. I always enjoy his work.

This is a pirate fantasy. As with most of the author's works, it is not deep or full of characterisation but an easy and quick read. And to be fair, Chris Bunch doesn't pretend his stuff is anything else. His Sten series (SF Military action) was the same, very readable but also very easy to forget too.

Here we have a young man whose family are abducted by slavers and he ends up as the captain of a Corsair ship taking the fight to the slavers. It's a bit 'by the numbers', some nice banter between the characters and a certain pace to the story but there is no real depth and at times the storyline is too obvious and sometimes lazy. This almost dropped to 2 stars but I will leave it as a low end three, the reason for this is that I suspect the author was going to continue the series but never got around to it before his sad death in 2005. This leaves a number of storylines incomplete and you are left with a number of unanswered questions about the slavers, their lizard masters and their motives. The incomplete aspect of the never fulfilled story arc does leave you a little unsatisfied and frustrated.
