Editorial Reviews


Philip K Allan's narrative is anything but predictable as hespins a yarn steeped in dramatic battles at sea, daring raids ashore,and day-to-day life aboard a Royal Navy frigate.
Through six titles in the Alexander Clay series, Allan has emerged as a shining new voice in naval fiction
Quarterdeck Magazine -  Summer 2019

As with all series, to get the best reading experience, and to really get to know the characters - and the author, come to that - it is always wise to start at the beginning with Book One. However, Philip K. Allan's writing is crafted well enough for any reader to start anywhere, as each nautical adventure is a stand-alone, with this addition being no exception. (Although I do advise  you to start at the beginning - it's worth it!)
The Turn Of The Tide is a cracking good read, blending historical fact with clever writer's imagination and real historical figures with fictional ones. For readers who enjoy the Napoleonic era of warfare at sea via novels by authors such as Patrick O'Brian, Julien Stockwin, Alaric Bond and, of course, C.S.Forrester, the Alexander Clay series is a must.
What I particularly like about Mr Allan's series is the diversity of characters and settings - the novels are not just about the officers on the quarterdeck or accomplishing derring-do achievements, these stories include the below-deck world of the ordinary seaman which results in an overall picture of what life was really like at sea.
Well written. Well researched. Well enjoyed.
