Random Magic Tour: Pirates! Bonus: Free audio book: The Sea Hawk
As part of Random Magic Tour: Pirates!, it’d be fun to swap some great pirate yarns - or just listen to a few great tales about the sweet trade, the black flag, pirate queens or the Brethren of the Coast. On this blog, you can listen to the audio book The Sea Hawk, by Rafael Sabatini. Here’s a description of this novel about vengeance, adventure, and the brethren of the Barbary coast:
From Wikipedia: The Sea Hawk is a novel by Rafael Sabatini, originally published in 1915. The story is set in the late 16th century, and concerns a Cornish sea-faring gentleman, Sir Oliver Tressilian, who is villainously betrayed by a jealous brother. After being forced to serve as a slave on a Spanish galley, Sir Oliver is liberated by Barbary pirates. He joins the pirates under the name ‘Sakr-el-Bahr,’ the hawk of the sea, and swears vengeance against his brother.
