Farnol, Jeffery: Martin Conisby's Vengeance. v1, 17th Sep 2009
More swashbuckling adventure from the prolific English author, Jeffrey Farnol, originally published in 1921. This book is the sequel (or perhaps more accurately, the continuation) to Black Bartlemy's Treasure, which should be read before this.
Review from Amazon:
If you haven't read Black Bartelmy's Treasure, get it first and read it. It ends without resolution for the two main characters and this is the continuation. More than a sequel, it is the second half. See the reviews of the first book. This is more of the same, great well sculpted characters in profusion, mixed with adventure, death, love, passion, and chivalry in the 1700's with pirates, Spanish inquisition, Central American jungles, Myans, battles, survival, shipwrecks in profusion.
Martin Conisby is adrift, farther and farther from his love. This follows his adventures, his quest for vengeance against an ancient family enemy, woeful suffering, the consummation of the vengeance that has eaten at him for six years. Flight to safety, survival in the jungle, unexpected friends and loyalty at many turns, as well as unexpected death and threat. But: read Black Bartlemy's Treasure first, to really understand what drives Martin and the ghosts of the past that haunt and drive him to near self destruction.
