Continuing the rousing adventures of Thomas Kydd . . . Stockwin, a career navy man, writes of the nautical life with vivid authority.” Kirkus Reviews
Stockwin continues to display his talents in transporting his audience from the 21st century to the chaotic worlds of Kydd, Renzi, and their imperiled homeland . . . [and] goes into action with swords drawn and cannons and carronades blasting.” Historical Novels Review
"This well-crafted naval adventure . . . balances historical perspective with the excitement of a full broadside assault. Comparable to . . . the naval tales of the great Patrick O'Brian, Stockwin's engaging novel reveals the author's acumen for the history and spirit of the time." Publishers Weekly (October 1, 2011)
