Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"Tidings of Victory" was fun to write in that I was able to have Kinkaid meet Benjamin Franklin, something he mentions he might do "someday" in the first volume, "Independent Action." It was also fun to revisit Europe, where I once lived for some years, where much of the action takes place, some of the story inspired by the adventures of John Paul Jones. I only have a rough idea of what will happen or what worries Kinkaid must endure on any of his adventures, leaving plenty of room for the story to play out and allowing characters to appear out of thin air, so to speak, so I especially enjoyed the intrigue that carried from the ship to the shore in the form of a dangerous protagonist who must be dealt with at the end.

As the other books in this series, this book really kept my interest.

This is a fun, fast read with more interesting characters than one usually finds in historic naval fiction.

I read a LOT of books- Michael Winston is among the better authors out there in classic naval ficton. He does the genre proud with authentic backround information, believable and fallible characters, and plenty of edge-of-your-seat adventure. I look forward to more from Mr. Winston in the future in this vein.

this edition of the Kinkaid series moves the players who by now have become very familiar further down the road of gaining independence from Great Britain. Winston follows up his previous successes with another good adventure.

Like his other books, there is considerable background but once Kinkaid gets to sea, this novel is terrific. Many surprising turns. I'm a fan of historical fiction and this is one of my favorite series. I really hope there will be more!

I just finished one of the best historical fiction Trilogies I have read in quite some time. Kent, Pope, O'Brien, have nothing on Winston. His ability to spin a tail of high sea adventure ranks with them as he weaves a story of daring and brings to life his hero Jonathan Kinkaid, whom he takes from a Lieutenancy to the Captaincy of his own ship along with his stalwart grew as they fight the American Revolution not by land, but by sea. Kinkaid is Americas answer to Bolitho. Winston's characters breathe life into the fledgling American navy as it must battle the pride of Britannia along the American cost and then bring that fight into England's own waters to secure a lasting freedom to a people longing for self-rule.

For one who has read the adventures of Bolitho, Hornblower, and Aubrey, several times over it was good to have an American naval hero to match these daring men of the Royal Navy. Winston has with attention to the history and customs of the time given us a great read. Unfortunately, it is a Trilogy and a fourth book is not in the future. I would encourage you to read these adventures. I believe you will be extremely pleased with Winston's work. And, maybe with fan prodding get him to give us other installments even if they need be pure fiction.

As I stated before, I think Winston writes entertaining books of Naval Warfare. While not as great as others, he is nevertheless a writer I would read

I love the previous books in this series because of their excellent writing style, captivating stories, realistic descriptions of ship-handling and shipboard life, and interesting tidbits of history. This book meets three of the four criteria, which is why I give it three stars instead of five. It misses on story, which is below par for Mr. Winston. I found the story boring and unbelievable, as though the author were trying so, so hard to come up with a good reason to write the book. I hope the next one is the series is up to the high quality of the first three.
