A frolicking good time

I'm a big fan of Ted Bell's Alex Hawke stories, so I had high expectations from this book, and I wasn't disappointed. The genre is very different from the Alex Hawke books, but the high excitement and excellent character development made this a joy to listen to. I love the way Ted integrated a fantasy pirate adventure with a time travel story, and grounded it all with historically significant characters. It was like Pirates of the Caribbean meets The Hunt For Red October. This is one I will definitely listen to again.
