Farnol, Jeffery: Black Bartlemy's Treasure. v1. 24 July 07

Jeffery Farnol was an English author who wrote romantic and adventure novels.

This swashbuckler features Martin Conisby's quest for revenge because he spent five years of slavery on the Spanish galleon Esmeralda. After a few mis-adventures, he rescues a beautiful girl, learns about the infamous pirate Black Bartlemy and legends of buried treasure. Hey I'm always a sucker for a good tale that takes place on the Seven Seas! I haven't read this book yet, but it sounds like a fun read and I may just spend this weekend reading it. I love this kinda stuff

Here's the first paragraph to give you a flavor of the style of writing:

The Frenchman beside me had been dead since dawn. His scarred and shackled body swayed limply back and forth with every sweep of the great oar as we, his less fortunate bench-fellows, tugged and strained to keep time to the stroke. Two men had I seen die beside me, yet Death ever passed me by, nay, it seemed rather that despite the pain of stripes, despite the travail and hardship, my strength waxed the mightier; upon arm and thigh, burned nigh black by fierce suns, the muscles showed hard and knotted; within my body, scarred by the lash, the life leapt and glowed yet was the soul of me sick..

I hope you enjoy it!
