More historically accurate than the Patrick O'Brian series
This heady adventure blends fact and fiction in rich, authoritative detail
As always with Stockwin's stories, the characters are engaging, the story is full of exciting action, and much of the story is real, based on historical research. You learn about history as you enjoy a rousing tale. And as with every Kydd tale, I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. In my book, number nineteen The Baltic Prize is another winner!
Praise for THE BALTIC PRIZE:-
The book on a whole is very enjoyable but for me, the best parts were those that took place at sea and aboard the Tyger (Kydd's ship). Stockwin himself was in the British Navy and his wealth of knowledge shows through in the naval scenes, settings and action (ship on ship battles are extremely cool) giving them all a sense and feeling of authenticity as he brings them to life on the pages.
Fans of fast-paced adventure will get their fill with this book.
Paints a vivid picture of life aboard the mighty ship-of-the-line.
Praise for the Thomas Kydd series:-
