Overview

Monsoon by Wilbur Smith

Monsoon, a Courtney Family Adventure from Wilbur Smith

One man. Three sons. A powerful destiny waiting to unfold.

Monsoon is the sweeping epic that continues the saga begun in Wilbur Smith's bestselling Birds of Prey. Once a voracious adventurer, it has been many years since Hal Courtney has dared the high seas. Now he must return with three of his sons - Tom, Dorian, and Guy - to protect the East India Trading Company from looting pirates, in exchange for half of the fortune he recovers.

It will be a death or glory mission in the name of the crown. But Hal must also think about the fates of his sons. Like their father before them, Tom, Dorian, and Guy are drawn inexorably to Africa. When fate decrees that they must all leave England forever, they set sail for the dark, unexplored continent, seduced by the allure and mystery of this new, magnificent, but savage land. All will have a crucial part to play in shaping the Courtneys' destiny, as the family vies for a prize beyond any of their dreams.

In a story of anger and passion, peace and war, Wilbur Smith evinces himself at the height of his storytelling powers. Set at the dawn of eighteenth-century England, with the Courtneys riding wind-tossed seas toward Arabia and Africa, Monsoon is an exhilarating adventure pitting brother against brother, man against sea, and good against evil.

My nephew handed me this book on a water skiing vacation and it turned out to be a great read. I really enjoyed the story and I really enjoy his writing style. While I'm sure that's a personal thing, I have found that I liked every book of his that I have read. He blends mostly action with enough sexual tension to keep you turning pages. This was one of his better stories and I really recommend it for a good adventure. The book below is also a very good read as well and recommend that too!

An excellent Wilbur Smith yarn, following the adventures of the Courtneys as they sail from England to Africa and Zanzibar seeking fortunes, adventure and retribution. Full of color, piracy and an exploration of Araby.

This is only the 4th Wilbur Smith book I have read and I'm not sure why I hadnt found this author before but I'm glad he has many more for me to read for I will find it very hard to find an author that can tell a story like him. Though being such a big book it is a fast and easy read not a boring page in the whole book all the way to the last page you will be hooked! The charachters are rich and you feel as though you know them. You laugh with them, you suffer with them, you long for them to succeed, you celebrate their victories. Great way to follow Birds of Prey which is also great.
