About this product
- DescriptionFelipe Montoya is a simple fisherman living on the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in the new colonies of Spain in the year 1612. His parents and Uncle, an aging master swordsman, made the Atlantic crossing to what they thought was a new land of opportunity. But far from the watchful eyes of the King, the new government is rampant with corruption. False arrests, land seizures and even unjust executions are routinely carried out. Attempting to assist a stricken vessel, Felipe and his father are accused of piracy simply for the bounty. Felipe's father is killed and he is imprisoned. Killing a guard to escape, he and his Uncle are forced to flee. Swearing revenge for his father's death, they free slaves who also hate the Spaniards. In a daring venture they steal a large warship at port. Together they ravage the Caribbean, eventually capturing the princess, the only heir to the throne. Being treated fairly and with respect, she eventually comes to like and respect those who were once slaves. She falls in love with the main character. They give birth to a son, w the male heir to the throne that the King so desperately wants. Learning of this, the King's assassin kidnaps the boy and returns him to Spain which leads to a daring rescue by an unlikely group of friends. It is the tale of every day men all struggling together for a common cause against the mightiest empire on earth. A heroic tale of bravery, love, betrayal and devotion.
