Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Horatio Hornblower novels of C.S. Forester were among the most genuinely satisfying novels of the last forty years, and now that Alexander Kent is patrolling the same sea lanes, the stories are as good as ever."  —The New York Times

"All the briny echoes of fictional marine heroes can be heard again in these rip-rousing tales of naval warfare . . . as the stalwart Bolitho gains the trust of his crew and admiration of his superiors."  —Saturday Evening Post

    Inspiring!

    I have enjoyed Richard Bolitho books since my youth, and this book is of the same high quality as the others I've read. Good historical fiction and a fine study in leadership, both good and bad. Grand adventure!

    Detailed and Approachable

    Alexander Kent does an excellent job painting the picture from Richard Bolitho's point of view. Enough details are provided to really make you feel involved in what is happening without being snobbish or citing facts just to site facts. Kent's writing is smooth and enjoyable. Unlike some pieces of Historical Fiction in which the facts and dates matter more than the characters and plot, this series is VERY character driven. If you are looking for a text book this isn't for you but if you are looking for one of the best pieces of Historical Fiction on the sea this series is for you.

    Needs a leadsman in the bows

    The Bolitho series lacks depth. I felt like the author was just scratching the surface of what was happening. The author needs to read O'Brien for lessons on writing good historical fiction. I can see why my father gave up on the series after two volumes. Huge let-down after his deep friendship with Aubrey and Maturin. This series is light summer beach reading, nothing more. The editing was abismal in most of the early volumes - type-os, double words, wrong words, etc. If you are distracted by poor editing, don't bother reading about the first 7 or 8 volumes. McBooks seems to be to publishing what McDonalds is to dining.
