Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This trio, published in 1972, 1973, and 1968, respectively, offer more of the briny adventures of Richard Bolitho as he sails the seas during the late 18th century. LJ's reviewers found Sloop to be a "rousing novel" LJ 12/1/72, while Kent himself was praised as the "worthy successor to C.S. Forester" LJ 7/68. For all collections that like their adventure stories served with a pinch of salt.

    Bolitho gets his first command the sloop HMS Sparrow

    This is a good read. Richard Bolitho is eleveated to command of his first ship. He spends all of the book in the West Indies and off the coast of America. The Revolutionary War is in full swing with the French about to truly begin assisting the Americans. Bolitho is put into some difficult positions as various people try to use him for their own greedy purposes. This one leaves wanting the adventures of the Sparrow to continue at the end.

    The Best Volume...

    This is by far the best volume of the Bolitho series. Kent brings Bolitho's character development along very nicely in this book. Bolitho's loyalty, determination, and paths for future friendships are all here.
