Book Review: The Pirate Queen: The Story of Grace O’Malley, Irish Pirate


The first thing I should mention about The Pirate Queen: The Story of Grace O’Malley, Irish Pirate by Alan Gold, is that it is a fictional piece.  For any listeners that enjoyed History Podcast episode 72: Grace O’Malley and would like to read an interesting, but fictional story about the pirate, I would recommend this novel.  However, please be aware that the books language is not for the fainted hearted.  The strong language was a major turn off for me.  The other warning I will give, is the book sometimes reads more like a romance novel than anything else.  All in all, I would say that you should read this book, if you are at all interested in female pirates.  I did enjoy the novel, despite the strong language and minor love scenes.
