The Wild Irish started out really interesting and I couldn t put it down but the second half of the book really dragged on I ve read much better books by Robin Maxwell and think this is one of her books that isn t really well written The story details meetings between Lord Essex Elizabeth I and the Irish pirate Grace O Malley Grace s story was by far the most interesting part of this book When Maxwell went into the struggles of Lord Essex in Ireland I was bored and couldn t wait to get to the next piece of the puzzle in Grace s life All in all this is a different take on the period after Henry XIII and for that reason I would defintely read it again but I wish the story moved a little faster
