4.0 out of 5 stars A good read
As with some of the other reviewers, I knew who did it very quickly into the story. I have to say that it didn't spoil the experience at all. The plot was by no means predictable, but the first half was a bit slow as the protagonist doesn't really take assertive action against the bad guys until the second half of the book.

Cornwell has a fondness for the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Best of Cornwell's Sea Thrillers but no Sharpe!
'Sea Lord' is the last of the Sea based thrillers by Cornwell that I have got around to reading. They have ranged in style from Miami Vice-esque (Crackdown), crazy eco-warriors (Storm Child) and now a more sedate and traditional story of feuding families.

'Sea Lord' is the best of Bernard Cornwell's Sea books because it's the most like his other novels such as...

This review is from: Sea Lord (Kindle Edition)
A good introduction to a new author, excellent knowledge of a sailing vessel of its type and its rigging. One would be enticed to see where this author is going to take us on future adventures

This is a great book for a Cornwell fan. Particularly if you dont always want to get embroilled in a series of books. A good stand alone offering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good as most Cornwell books are, but a little more laboured than his historical novels, 31 May 2013

This review is from: Sea Lord (Kindle Edition)
Generally good, although some parts a little slow. The characters are less memorable than say Sharpe or Utred and perhaps not so credible as real people

This novel is a deceptive read in that it started off slow and built to a crescendo. This is my first Bernard Cromwell novel and it will not be the last.

4.0 out of 5 stars Derrydoing at sea, 28 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sea Lord (Paperback)
This is 1 of a number of sea adventures that Cornwell has knocked off. They inevitably include a wonderful sailing boat, a beautiful girl and some nasty business about inheritance which leads to the boat blowing up. Having said that, Cornwell is a fluid writer and theey're good fun to read.

Sea Lord involves an impoverisher Lord who has abandoned his family to go to sea immediately after the family's only asset a Van Gogh was stolen. He is reluctantly dragged back into the fray when his mother dies. The girl in this book is an art expert whose step father is an enormously wealthy collector who wants the painting.

The book was o.k., I like Cornwell as a writer, but it was obvious how it would end by page 15.

Recommended for the very bored.

This starts as a great sailing adventure without leaving the Channel, it then turns into an even better one. Mr Cornwell had me engrossed in it and even towards the end I could not decide exactly who did it. Although my suspicions were correct on one point. Good read
