It too is a marvellous read. Adam Penfeather is in a league with Long John Silver.

Black bartlemy's treasure. His scarred and shackled body swayed limply back and forth with every sweep of the great oar as we, his less fortunate bench fellows, tugged and strained to keep time to the stroke.

Jeffery Fernol (1878 - 1952) was an English writer of romance/adventure stories. He is thought to be the co-founder of the Regency romantic genre. He produced approximately 40 novels and volumes of stories, and some non-fiction and children's books. Black Bartlemy's Treasure, the story of the Spanish Main, was published in 1920. Martine Conisby, Lord Wendover, enraged by his five years of slavery on a Spanish galleon escapes during a sea fight. He is rescued by an English ship. Lord Wendover is determined to avenge this wrong. He returns to England disguised as a tramp just in time to save the beautiful Lady Jane Brandon. The beautiful lady is the daughter of the man he has sworn to punish. They learn of Black Bartlemy, an infamous pirate who has treasure buried on an island. The two set out in search of treasure.

4 1/2 for Martin Conisby's bemoaning his lot. Could have been a 5

Martin Conisby is more animal than human. For the last five years he has been chained to the rowing bench of a galley ship. The hot sun baked his brains till his every waking and dreaming thought was bent on getting revenge. For all his high upbringing, Martin Conisby is a fool. Unable to get beyond his past, he would let everything slip. Fortune, love, happiness and true friendship. None of it matters to his fever ravaged brain. And I became inclined to agree with Adam Penfeather (rogue that he is), that a pistol butt against his head was the only way. On the other hand, maybe that's why he was a fool till the end. A quote from Penfeather himself:

"Ha, doth the tap o' my pistol-butt smart yet, Martin? (...) And now," says Adam crossing his arms, "here's the truth on't. I found you a poor wretch bent on vengeance, murder, and a rogues death, which Is pure folly. I offered you riches, the which you refused, and this was arrant folly. I took you for comarde, brought you aboard ship with offer of honest employ which you likewise refused, and here was more folly. Your conduct on board ship was all folly. (...) Martin," says he,"'Tis true you are a fool but your folly harmeth none but yourself!"

Yes, buccaneer that he is, Penfeather did the best he could with an unwilling accomplice. And managed to love him for/despite his foolery.

I feel rather sorry for Lady Joan, she deeply loved Martin, she saw what he could be, instead of writing him off as a lost cause. But did Martin trust her to love him even when things were black against him? Of course not, he was Martin Conisby, pronounced fool by all. At moments like that I wished Adam could get out his pistol again. Joan was so sweet an patient with Martin and his black moods, she was a true heroine.

In case you are wondering, I enjoyed this book, I loved the adventure and now I must sit down and read the "sequel" (the other half in reality). Yes, it leaves off on a cliff hanger. Yes, the publishers decided splitting the book would be more profitable. Of I go to read Martin Conisby's Vengence! Part of me wondered why Martin took so long to get passed his past, then I remembered that this was really just the first half of the book, not a standalone.

G-PG Being a book on pirates, Black Bartlemy, A pirate with a hook-hand, treasure, buccaneers and a former galley slave there are multiple murders, we don't see more than a shot. There is a dead man's song, which holds the key to a murderer and a few swears.
If you like a lot of swash with your buckle, this is the book for you. Previous reviews have dwelled upon the story line. Yes, there are plenty of cut-throat pirates, battles at sea and on land, facinating characters, etc., etc. Quite enough excitement to keep the adventure lovers happy. But it is also the story of one man's journey away from revenge and toward redemption and, unfortunately, back again. His father murdered, his body sold into slavery to the Spanish, English noble Martin Conisby escapes from his fate as a galley slave and returns to England with only one burning desire---revenge upon the man who caused the ruin of the House of Conisby, the head of the House of Brandon. Will his reignited love for Joan Brandon, daughter of Martin's nemesis, be enough to clear his heart of hate?

To answer the above question it will be necessary to read both this book and its sequel, "Martin Conisby's Vengeance." Enjoy!
I loved this adventure story. The previous reviewer did a good job of summarizing the storyline. I found wonderfully diverse characters, a rollicking story of the high seas, pirates, love, vengeance, courage, survival on a deserted island, and more. I was shocked to have the story end "in the middle" with no resolution!! I immediately found "Martin Conisby's Vengeance" and for another 80 cents I had it in my Kindle in minutes and continued. His writing style reminds me a bit of Robert Louis Stevenson, particularly Kidnapped, with the bond between David Balfour and Alan. I will write a review of the second book, but if you like adventure stories (Haggard, RL Stevenson) you should find this a roller coaster of adventure filled with cliffhangers. Accurate historical details (they prime their flintlocks, patch their musket balls) and ships, ships, ships and life (and death) aboard ships. Courage, fighting, honor -- all in wonderful profusion.
I loved this story. It pulled me in from the first page. It's an adventurous swashbuckler -- a little bit Three Musketeers (the main character seems invincible), a little bit Count of Monte Cristo (because his life revolves around vengeance), and a little bit Robinson Crusoe. There's also a very sweet romantic element. I couldn't put it down.

At the end of the book, you're going to want to know what happens next, so be prepared to download Martin Conisby's Vengeance.
Jeffery Farnol is kind of Jane Austin light. This is a nice story. Not a great one, but not bad. Being a big fan of Jeffery Farnol I gave it a rating of four stars (can't give a 3 1/2).

Note that this book is basically part one of a two part series and that the second part is entitled Martin Conisby's Venegence.

I like Farnol's observations on human nature and how things are often not what they seem. It is also unusual, that a story which is 90 years old is still as fluent and readable as if it were written today.

I would recommend the following books by Farnol: The Broad Highway, Our Admireable Betty, The Definite Object, The Amateur Gentleman, The Money Moon (in descending order of preference). I especially recommend The Broad Highway.
An exciting story of adventure, with a host of colorful characters -- and fantastic examples of pirate-speak! Surprising character depth and development, and the romantic subplot contributes to the story rather than detracts from it. A good summer read for lovers of pirate-lore!
Some violence, (they are pirates, after all) so it may not be appropriate for very young readers.
It was free.
A fantastic read. Well written and surprisingly vivid narrative. I do not give out 5 stars easily, but this book deserves it. If you like the genre, then this is for you.
