I am fresh off reading this excellent addition to the Dane Maddock adventure series and every time I start to type a highlight, I end up tapping the backspace key because I don't want to spoil any of the numerous surprises that Mr. Wood has in store for his readers. All the things that we've come to expect are here in spades: Action, mystery, adventure, legend, history, babes (as Bones might crack) - and of course - the bad guys.
David Wood continues to mature as a novelist and Buccaneer is his best work in the series yet. It is beefier, cleaner, deeper and more sinuous than its predecessors. I've read the series and, acknowledging what several other reviewers have noted, there have been a fair number of grammatical faux-pas in previous episodes. And while there are a few still lurking in Buccaneer, the number is down significantly from past books and that improves the overall reading experience tremendously. And to be honest, if I wasn't looking for them I'd likely have missed most of them.
It's been a long time since I've read a book that I didn't want to put down but Buccaneer is one of those books. My wife can attest that several chores did not get accomplished over the New Year's holiday because I had my nose in my Touchpad or laptop Kindle app. I can't say much more without getting into details best left undiscovered in a measly review. Mr. Wood's plot is excellent; Buccaneer is rife with well-developed characters and the story's pacing is perfect.
If you want a thrilling read that will hold your interest long after the last page is turned, Buccaneer is the next book you should read. And for those who might wonder why I graded Buccaneer out at 4 stars instead of 5? Mr. Wood has shown me what he is capable of, improving exponentially with each Dane Maddock adventure. David - you're a victim of your own success - and I know you can raise the bar even higher for the next installment!
My Kindle, and that fifth star, are waiting...

This series of books just gets faster and faster and this one is my favourtie at the moment.
I thought I would be reading about finding sunken treasure but boy this book twists that around on it's head and heads off in a totally different direction!
I can't speak highly enough of the Dane Maddock series, I'm only one book away from the last book, and I sincerely hope there will be more. So my burning dilemma now is, do I read slowly and savour the next book? No I'll read it as fast as all the others :-)
Had it all this story King Arthur, dragons, religious sects, historical legends, and some good action and humour too
Keep up the good work look forward to the next adventure
