4.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS BOOK & THIS SERIES, ITS GREAT FUN", 14 May 2012

This review is from: The Emerald Storm (An Ethan Gage Adventure) (Paperback)
Ethan gage
A sort of serious Harry Flashman / MacGyver hybrid in the 1800's. A man for whom no mission is to big. Life has changed somewhat since he has changes his personal circumstances, but his need for racing from one sword fight to another, from one intrigue to the next is not diminished.
As writers go WD is excellent, the plot is fun and well told, couple that with the daring do of Ethan Gage and you the reader will find yourself flicking to the next page and the next and if you're like me looking up to find its 2am and you have work in the morning, wondering if you can squeeze one more chapter in before lights out and not be too exhausted for work.
Of the 5 books in the series, this isn't my favourite that's the last one Barbary Pirates (but I love pirate tales) what I am amazed at is that given his undoubted ability and the comparisons noted below in the description, how is this man not bigger, how are the books not hitting higher in the charts? Maybe because people don't shout out...so here goes "BUY THIS BOOK & THIS SERIES, ITS GREAT FUN"
A recommended book and series go buy them

Description (from Back of Book)
In the fifth instalment of master storyteller William Dietrich's bestselling adventure series, the swashbuckling, battle-scarred hero Ethan Gage must race from the slopes of the Alps to the sultry tropics of the Caribbean to pursue a mysterious Spanish treasure as the fate of England - and of the world's first successful slave revolt - hang desperately in the balance. The Emerald Storm is the action-packed historical masterpiece that Ethan Gage fans have long awaited. Fans of the Indiana Jones adventures, the Sharpe's Rifles series, and the thrilling works of James Rollins, who himself calls Dietrich's writing 'adventure at its grandest,' will find The Emerald Storm a satisfying, sword-in-hand romp through history - and new readers will discover it as the perfect introduction to the breathtaking Ethan Gage Adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good as the rest, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read all the Ethan Gage novels that have been released on the Kindle and have found each an enjoyable experience. I prefer longer novels, which I class these as and which allow for some long sessions

I understand other comments which relate to the Flashman series and also see a similarity, which is no bad thing for me as I have been a fan of those for 30 years!

I also appreciate the fact that the author took time to reply to a few emails I sent him regarding the release of the novels on Kindle

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good Ethan Gage yarn, 4 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a big fan of Ethan Gage stories in general and for several reasons. First, the character of Ethan Gage is just enough of a rogue to have a lot of appeal. He is flawed and because of that, we can relate to him. Second, the settings are grand and well written. Third the plots are always exciting and full of twists and turns. With "The Emerald Storm" Dietrich again creates an exciting historical novel full of action, humour and typical Ethan Gage fun. This is one of his best yet ...
