What a find...!,

This review is from: The Land Beyond the Sea (The Albert Adventures Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I was hugely surprised to find such quality in a short novel. Sometimes, you read a novel and without bidding you imagine and see the action taking place in your mind as if you were watching a movie. The pace is fast and when the action slows, you can feel tension building like potential energy waiting to be released. This story is written in such a way that you cannot help but be drawn in and watch play out through the authors eyes.
The story is rich and full of colour; you can feel the fear when the main character is cornered, feel the adrenaline rush when a chase is underway and anger when he is betrayed. There are great touches of detail, such as the make of the pistols and seemingly inconsequential points that come back to have a bearing later in the story.
The story sets out a great opening for what promises to be a great novel - this is 'Pirates of the Caribbean' meets 'Master and Commander'.
