Book 2 in the Sea Witch series, Pirate code continues to reveal the lives of the pirate Jesamiah Acorne and the witch Tiola.
Nassau's officials and Tiola's husband are all plotting to get Acorne to sail to Hispaniola and the Royal Navy, in the form of commodore Vernon, want to commandeer Sea Witch for use in the new war against Spain. Circumstances combine to force Acorne to leave Tiola behind and head for the Spanish island, where more plots and counter plots by the island's governor and its rebels involve the loveable rogue, who true to form is never far from a romantic encounter. This skilful narrative slowly unravels these threads and reveals more of Acorne's past and family secrets as he and his crew get dragged into events.
The twists in the plot as it moves to it's climax make this one hard to put down as the reader is keen to know what the next twist will reveal and I look forward to seeing how Helen Hollick will continue the lives of these characters in book 3 of the series.
