Brethren of the Black Spot is a book stepping back in time about navy Seals on their way to another important mission in Jamaica. They encounter an odd-looking fog then go through it, finding themselves back in time in 1692. The six navy Seals encounter unexpected badass pirates in a tavern as they are trying to find out where they are.
The story is also a love story when one navy SEAL falls in love with the governor’s daughter while trying to rescue her and her two friends from the pirates. The story takes place in Port Royal Jamaica, a real city back in 1692 called the wickedest city on earth. The navy Seals end up in a number of battles with the worst of the worst pirates on earth, using their weapons against the pirate’s weapons of the day. The worst earthquake did take place in real-time in 1692 that destroyed Port Royal Jamaica.
After reading the book cover to cover, I feel I can give an honest opinion on the literature. This novel takes place during the George W. Bush administration and has many political leaders listed. Dennis Davis weaves a tale of action, adventure, hope, despair, love, and hate into this novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next twist. Characters like Capt. Wallace, Lt. James, Capt. McVaine, Governor Beeston, and many more have incredible character development that allows me to imagine myself in these invigorating situations and visualize the characters acting out the story that the author, Dennis Davis, expertly weaves together. Also, I can see that the author did thorough research on the 1600s and 1700s to accurately detail the environment that the seal team was experiencing.
I have nothing but good things to say about this read. I highly recommend this one be added to your personal library!
