Publisher's Summary

A thrilling, swashbuckling new fantasy for fans of Jim Butcher, the Starz TV series Black Sails, and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
For 200 years, the world of Alarisia has lived through a great age of piracy. Men take to the seas to seek their fortune or die trying. Controlled by the seven pirate lords and hounded by the world navy, they sack and pillage their way across the oceans. But not all prosper under their rule; for many, the pirate lords create only misery and death.
Dean and Eldric Whittaker have never known their parents. Orphaned in a pirate raid on their village, the two brothers were raised by the mysterious wizard Rorschach. The only clue to their heritage, their strange abilities to control the elements of ice and fire. Harboring a hate for the pirate lords and a thirst for revenge, the brothers set out on their own voyage. But in a world inhabited by monsters and ruled by men with the power of gods, can they survive long enough to achieve their goal?

An interesting pirate and magic themed novel

Crossbones is an interesting pirate and magic themed novel. I easily finished this book in one sitting. This book is an action packed adventure from the beginning to the end with great fight scenes throughout the book. The author did a great job introducing and building the main characters, and I found them easily relatable. Unfortunately, I didn’t know that this book is the first in a new series when I started listening to it, so it leaves a lot of unanswered questions. The narrator did an ok job, but at times it was difficult for me to distinguish which character would be speaking. There were some other characters that he voiced where he did a great job, and brought a lot of life to them. Overall, this book is worth a listen and I look forward to listening to book two.

Pirates and magic!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would because this is an interesting cross of different genres. This was a little slow starting, but then it picked up and the pacing was great, and there is a lot of action.


Have you listened to any of Tim Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first book by him, but he did a great job. I thought his pace was excellent.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to it straight through at work. My only real compliant is that it was too short! I am ready for the next episode.
