As expected from the title this story is centered on the disastrous battle at the Alamo, although (thankfully for them) at a distance. It's more a story of people who lived in the surrounding areas. These people are the descendants of pirates, a continuation in a series that would benefit the reader to read first, but isn't necessary to enjoy this story. Clay goes to Texas undercover as a soldier to aide the Texians financially. Because of all the influx of factions for control, the area is filled with people hiding what side they are on. He is waylaid, shot, and ends up at Ellis' family farm. She is a healer, using local herbs and knowledge that has been handed down to her. Clay survives due to her healing and tenacity, traits they both share. He and Ellis' family join together to fight for what is right. An interesting tale of this area and people surrounding this embattled area, plus the people from without who nevertheless want a piece of the action - for various reasons. No such struggle for control operates in a vacuum. An excellent story to be entertained and learn from history.
