Product Description

About the Author

Brad Williams writes to a man's soul through fantasy blended with wilderness adventure and survival. Each page of tightly-focused narrative is encrusted with vivid sensory details designed to take readers on a journey they can feel: breathe with ease in a safe camp as the warm kiss of the desert wind stirs your hair, or endure mosquito-infested, strength-sapping swamps, where dangers of anacondas under the water hyacinth tire the mind to delirium. Williams infuses his authentic scenes with themes of exploration and discovery, bravery, friendship, reflection, and the spiritual connection between man and uncharted nature. Williams holds a degree in Journalism and has worked as a newspaper reporter, freelance writer, and teacher. He was born in East Tennessee and is an active outdoorsman. His hobbies include surfing, hiking, camping, caving, and other adventure sports. Williams currently resides in Taiwan.

Marvelous tale for all ages 1 April 2014
By LESLIE OBRIEN - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
*Warning, this review is filled with icky-sweet squeals of complete enjoyment. This story engaged me immediately. I loved the journalistic-memoir style (unofficial term) the author used. The language and storytelling style does invite being read aloud and as I did, I had visions of Baron von Münchhausen, JM Barrie, a bit of Mr. Magorium and other fantastical story tellers dancing in my head. Throughout the story, the narrator (Commander Sharp) describes history and events in a manner that assumes the reader is well familiar with what took place, but at the same time, he tells us what happened. It’s done in a journalistic style that assumes you are well-aware of everything, but yet, know nothing. I loved the inventory that they took while still on ship. There are also teaching moments that are subtle (e.g. breeding dogs to use for cruel purposes). I’ve read few stories like this with this level of storytelling and the attention to detail. From children to adult, if you are fan of this type of fantasy story with a bit of a steampunk twist, then you will enjoy reading about the life and adventures of Chadwick Yates.

Very entertaining and addictive. 13 Aug. 2013
By Ryan - Published on
Format: Paperback
As I read this book I found myself wishing I could be exploring the Black Continent with Chadwick Yates and Commander Sharp. The new world that the author creates is an excellent blend of reality and fantasy; it's real enough to be believable and magical enough to be exciting. The characters are well crafted. They are resilient and ambitious, capable but not infallible, brave but not fearless. Be careful though, as it might awaken a desire for adventure in you that you won't be able to ignore.

It is good to see that this is only Volume 1 of the Chadwick Yates saga. I am looking forward to the next installment to see further development of Mr. Yates, Commander Sharp, and the mysterious new world that they are discovering.

LOVE! 25 Mar. 2014

Brad Williams is a skilled story teller!

There are so many books in the genre of "use your imagination" that are either not suitable to a younger audience or that pander to greatly for them. This is an excellent book for the middle school/high school, young adult, and adult readers. It's always amazing to me when an author is able to write with such a broad reach.

The Black Continent is a place I felt lucky to be as a guest of Chadwick Yates and Commander Sharp. It's a world of wonder and magic that will stretch your imagination and thrill you all at once.

This is a very fast read and will engage full from page one. You won't be bored and you'll find yourself, like me, waiting for more adventures of Chadwick Yates.

`To the sea, the sky, and the mountains, where I have found inexhaustible inspiration.' 15 Mar. 2014
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Young movie star handsome Brad Williams raises the bar for fiendishly clever writing and for the courage to engage the reader of this series of stories of which CHADWICK YATES AND THE CANNIBAL SHRINE is but the first in an ongoing collection. Worldly information includes a degree in journalism, which he used as a former Knoxville News Sentinel writer and magazine freelancer. Outside the box Brad is an active outdoorsman - surfing, hiking, camping caving, rock climbing - and international traveler currently living and writing in Taiwan. All of these elements surface in his stories which involve the marriage of `a man's soul through fantasy blended with outdoor adventure, focusing on themes of wilderness exploration, bravery, friendship, and the spiritual connection between man and uncharted wilderness.' But fine as his stories are it is Brad's writing style that is almost bewitching. `I encourage the reader, if possible, to read this story aloud, for I have employed the style of writing common to its setting. In our world of fast-paced living that has come to put much value in short, simple sentences, the charm of older writing is best heard as the spoken word. If reading truly is better exercise for the brain and the attention span, then it ought to be worthwhile work to read our Verne, Dickens, Doyle, and those steampunk authors like myself who try our best to follow in their steps.' His stories plead to be accompanied by illustrations like many of those of the authors he emulates. But for this Kindle version we have only the brilliant cover illustration by Danijel Firak to suggest the atmosphere of the story within. Perhaps in hard copy form...

The stories are meant to be brief as is explained in a haughty Prologue as delivered by one of the main character's admirers - a Mr. Thurston Sharp, former commander in Her Majesty's Royal Navy - written about this 19th century adventure we are about to read. And then we are off into the strange land of the Black Continent of Tanzia with majik and gremlins and minotaurs, and `a foul menagerie of evil monsters known as Servants: the pets brought to life by a terrible sorcerer who once enslaved all races. and battles and heroics and triumphs.' The atmosphere is best quoted from eccentric explorer and gunslinger Ambassador Chadwick Yates, `There is an adventurous spirit in every man, I believe, which he either feeds or starves. Though it has led many good men to early graves and to the gallows, it has also resulted in the bravest acts of patriotic service, all the legends of poetry, and the most important advancements of science and technology. There is nothing new without bravery, and one new discovery often results in a thousand good deeds by its radiation. Perhaps I might do my nation and my world a great deed by cultivating my bravery in this matter.'
And, of course we encounter and conquer the cannibal shrine and all the promises made early in the story.

There is a genre referred to as chick lit. We may have to invent a new Genre for Brad Williams - gentlemen (or guy) lit. He pulls it off with such aplomb! Grady Harp, March 14

If you are keen to experience the widest scale of adventures, Chadwick Yates and the Cannibal Shrine (The Adventures of Chadwick Yates) by Brad Williams, edited by Amanda Brown and beautifully illustrated by Danijel Firak could be your best choice. It is an adventure that is heavily patterned after classic Victorian adventures such as "King Solomon's Mines," "Sherlock Holmes," and "Journey to the Center of the Earth" but with more fantasy and more steampunk guns and gadgets.

It is a story that will mesmerize and engage the reader. The adventure narrated in the book is truly delightful and absorbing. The book is richly illustrated and the story is brilliantly told. Brad Williams has delivered a magnificent story that will hook many new readers. It is a journey of daring adventures, actions and many more.
