The island kingdom of Saros trembles on the edge of annihilation. Raiders harry the coast, ports are burned, and in the capital King Alifieri keeps a fearful truce with the ambassador of the mighty Linyati Empire.

But Gareth Radnor, prisoner of the king, knows that the current skirmishes are but the prelude to a full-scale invasion of Saros. Gareth alone knows the true nature of the enemy, and it is he who must lead the Corsairs of Saros in one last, desperate, strike at the heart of an implacable foe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Chris Bunch ends the drought of pirate adventure novels with the swashbuckling fantasy Corsair, a coming-of-age novel about Gareth Radnor, an honourable young man who goes to sea after Linyati slavers kill his parents. When Gareth finds himself serving aboard a Sarosian ship transporting slaves, he joins with other crewmen to seize control of the vessel--and eventually becomes the captain of a pirate ship preying on slave ships--freeing the human cargo. His cunning and implacable attacks soon have him pursued by all the gunships and sorcerers of the Linyati, and the slavers will do everything in their considerable power to destroy Gareth Radnor. * Cynthia Ward, Amazon.com *
Rich and convincing ... will leave you eagerly awaiting the next instalment * SFX *
Slam-bang excitement, lusty action and military magic...fast-paced and ferocious * Julian May *
A hard-edged, salty brew of pirates, treasure maps and sea battles from one of our most dependable storytellers, Corsair is a fantasy/adventure tale that will keep you up late reading and send you off to bed with memorable dreams * Terry Brooks *

“by the numbers fantasy”

This is a pirate fantasy. As with most of the author's works, it is not deep or full of characterisation but an easy and quick read. And to be fair, Chris Bunch doesn't pretend his stuff is anything else.... More
