what a milestone
on 28 July 2011
Book 10 (WOW...what a milestone) in a long running series that just seems to get better and better the characters keep growning and flowing with their ever expanding plot lines and movement into the ever larger arena of their times, as they and their careers / fortunes grow so do the scale and power of the troubles they encounter. The whole story and leaves the reader with a shanty lilt to their speech and a roll to their gait.
This is a book where i think we start to see a lead up to climactic book 11, it does have an element of a bridgeing book for me, but it does it with style and invention and in this case the submarine, i learned so much in this book and in the authors notes about the early sub, and it was as usual so well told you didnt know you were being educated while entertained.
All of this coupled with Julians obvious passion for the sea and all things nautical, this is a series that does rank up there with Forrester and O'Brian, every year i look forward to my new instalment of Kydd...but to get there you have to start at the beginning dont spoil it and come in part way.
