Featuring the wonderful county of Pembrokeshire (Wales), the majority of the action in this novella occurs north of The Landsker where the crags of the Prescelli Hills roll down over moorland to towering headlands, to sandy coves, and small fishing harbours. It is 1797, England is at war with France, and French troops commanded by an American, Colonel William Tate, land at Fishguard. This is the point where true history is masterfully blended with fiction, thus the fictional Major Mullone, and an old French adversary of his are once again treading the same ground.

Amidst treacherous collusion and deceptive practises not all the local inhabitants of Fishguard, and the surrounding district, are so easily hoodwinked by French soldiers masquerading as a British regiment. Subsequently, Major Mullone against the odds of one man rallying a local force to oust the French, duly finds favour with a local ex soldier who proves himself invaluable as a source for covert activities. Suffice to say, and avoiding plot spoilers, there is one incident that is pure fiction. Nonetheless, French uniforms are singed, and some commanders on both sides are left with egg on faces; whilst Mullone? Well, read the story and find out. Highly recommended!

The Tempest is a tour de force! David Cook’s beautifully evocative language brings the Georgian Welsh landscape of 1797 vividly to life. He has brilliantly peopled his novella with fascinating well-fleshed characters. He sets his scene carefully, giving all the clues but allowing the reader to figure out what is happening. His hero the courageous Major Lorne Mallone is everything you hope for from an intelligent soldier, brave, charismatic and intuitive. You root for his success as he struggles to convince those around him of their danger. David Cook is an excellent writer, his fast-paced novella “The Tempest” is one of the best pieces of historical fiction I have read in decades. I whole heartedly recommend it to lovers of military historic faction, pick it up and it will keep you reading to the end.

A very good short story or novella depending on your view point. It is set around a mainly forgotten episode in history. When south west Wales was invaded by the French in the late 18th century.
A winning combination of a loner hero, heroic natives, traitorous villains and the evil french make a nice mix.
For fans of the series it's a great continuation of a great series and those who choose this one only. Your being silly and missing out get the others and at 99p each on kindle it's a steal.....
