The Kydd Series Gets Serious

Anyone who has read the previous books will understand just what an excellent series this is. Julian Stockwin has married a highly cerebral character, Renzi with his undoubted lead Tom Kydd who is all about instinct and natural charisma. The chemistry between them is near perfect. Their adventures to date have all been excellent but this book takes the series into very different territory once it addresses the great mutiny of the Nore.

This is a highlight for me because there was little glory on any side for what happened in this most troubled period in British naval history. Stockwin however, as we have come to expect, has done his research and his story takes the required darker path and does not try to sugar coat the tragic events that unfurled. This was important to retain credibility and the author once again cleverly merges his characters into the real-life events seamlessly without distorting them.

So another excellent book in a series that more than holds its own in the genre and of course no review of these books would be complete without a nod to the wonderful Christian Rodska and his excellent narration.
