The only effort this so called author put into this book was to edit out chapters and change the chapter titles and edited some of the wording. Frankly, from the amount of the story I did read I preferred Henty's original story. This was a poor editing job at best. He removed significant content.
I looked at other titles for which he claims authorship and he is so blatant that on several of them he didn't even bother to change Henty's original title, namely "Winning His Spurs" and "By Sheer Pluck" His title "A Storm of Peril" is Henty's "In Times of Peril".
I checked his so called sequel "Avenging Khartoum" and find that it is an edit of Henty's book "With Kitchner in the Soudan".
If you wish to read an edited version of a classic Henty story you may want to waste your time on these titles.I prefer the original.
Personally, I wouldn't be so negative if he had simply stated that his were not original works but edits of the great works of G. A. Henty. My problem with this is he claims authorship.
