More About the Author

Julian Stockwin was sent at the age of fourteen to Indefatigable, a tough sea-training school. He joined the Royal Navy at fifteen before transferring to the Royal Australian Navy, where he served for eight years in the Far East, Antarctic waters and the South Seas. In Vietnam he saw active service in a carrier task force.



After leaving the Navy (rated Petty Officer), Julian practised as an educational psychologist. He lived for some time in Hong Kong, where he was commissioned into the Royal Naval Reserve. He was awarded the MBE and retired with the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He now lives in Devon with his wife Kathy. More information can be found on his website at www.julianstockwin.com.

Being addicted to "fighting sail" novels I have read them nearly all! Mr. Stockwins books are all well researched and among the best. His latest "Caribbee" is as good as ever with interesting characters and situations and an enjoyable read. I highly recommend this book and indeed the whole "Thomas Kydd" series to my fellow addicts!

I've read all the series. I've also read many of the recognised authors of historical novels - Hornblower, O'Brian, Flashman, as well as Cornwell and Iggulden - Julian Stockwin gets better with each book and writes an excellently researched novel. He compares favourably and deserves recognition as a fine writer in tis genre.

As is normal with Julian, his research and writing style transports the reader straight to the location.
It's all so real that you can smell the action.

The Kydd is one of the best historical naval fiction series ever. If you are considering this book it would be worth reading KYDD, the very first of all the series and reading all the books in order of publication. Well worth it and you will not be able to put your book down once started.

Review

I have been a huge fan of this series since 2001, i stumbled across Kydd, i had no real love of sea going tales, and while i love the sight smell and sound of the sea, i get sea sick on a bus, so sailing is well and truly out for me. These books are the closest i can ever get to sailing the seas. The power of the sea and a storm always fascinates me, and i love the beach in a storm more than a sunny day. Its this that captured me at first, then the brilliantly woven characters, I was almost put off by the initial sea shanty style speech, but then i quickly came to love that part of the book, enjoying the musical quality it wove through the book.

Since then Kydd has improved himself, and this has sadly removed this lilting speech. What has remained though is an amazing fictional partnership between unlikely friends, Kydd and Renzi, two men who attack adversity rather than run from it, who live in a time of real men, hero;s both sung and unsung, or honour and action, Written by a man with salt water in his veins. Even someone as landlocked as me can feel the passion for the sea in every line.

14 books in and this series shows no signs of flagging, in fact it grows and improves with every book

as usual, very highly recommended and already purchased for other family members for xmas
