Also a Renzi Land Adventure 12. Oktober 2014
Von re5jim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the fifteenth volume in the Kydd series. Any of these can stand alone, but of course they're so much better if read in order.

Pasha sees our heroes through a few transitions. First we finally find out if Renzi will ever marry Kydd's sister. She has been waiting for him to make up his mind and so have we. Both Thomas Kydd and Mr. Renzi gain new titles which force them to part company as Renzi takes on new roles both at home and abroad. In fact, Pasha may seem to be more about Renzi than Captain Kydd. Never fear. Stockwin doesn't let him have the whole book. There is plenty of excitement aboard ship. We get the usual battles and fires and the conversation between sailors we've come to know as well as a few new characters.

Historical fiction blends real events with fictional characters. There is a very interesting note from the author that tells of his trip to Turkey, the people, the buildings, and the history that inspired him to write such an intriguing cloak and dagger adventure.

I was delighted to win a copy from Goodreads Giveaways.

Stockwin's Best 21. November 2014
Von Quarterdeck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the best Kydd in a superb series. Pasha achieves a new level of excellence. Summoned to London from the Caribbean by the Admiralty, Captain Thomas Kydd harbors a sense of foreboding for what lies ahead in Whitehall – a “vengeful court-martial” and the loss of HMS L’Aurore and his career? Nicholas Renzi, Kydd’s particular friend and personal secretary, is at sea within his own thoughts, believing himself to be a poor, failed novelist unworthy of asking Cecilia Kydd for her hand. Leaving Portsmouth together by coach – Kydd bound for London and Renzi for Guildford – they are about to embark on separate journeys that will forever change their lives in ways that neither could imagine. Arriving in the capital, Kydd is swept up in officialdom from the hallowed office of the First Lord in the Admiralty to the majestic rooms in the royal residences at Windsor Castle and St. James Palace to ancient Westminster Abbey. It is not exactly what he had anticipated. After a disturbing discovery in Guildford, Renzi travels by coach to London, cloaked in gloom. At the John Murray publishing house, matters are brighter, but one last cloud hangs heavily over him. By the time Kydd and Renzi reunite in Guildford, the courses of their lives, once so connected, have diverged. Kydd is destined for the sea aboard L’Aurore, first on a mission into Cadiz’s inner harbor and then east in the Mediterranean to the Ottoman Empire to thwart Napoleon Bonaparte’s designs on Constantinople. Renzi is drawn into a position in the clandestine intelligence service, with the French intrusion in Turkey seen as paramount to British security, and Renzi is dispatched to Constantinople in the guise of an English aristocrat. Neither Kydd nor Renzi are aware of the other’s presence, as they each face a gathering storm against the French and an unstable Ottoman sultan seeking to reform alliances. Stockwin brilliantly re-creates little-known historical events, when the Royal Navy sailed into the Dardanelles – a perilous waterway – to reinforce British influence. This is Stockwin's best.

The Royal Navy visits Constantinople 23. November 2014
Von A Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I'm not much into sailing stories so this was an unusual read for me, but still quite enjoyable. It is part of a series of books about a British ship, the L'Aurore, and its captain, Thomas Kydd.

The story takes place during the Napoleonic era and involves a little known incident during that period in Constantinople involving the Ottoman Sultan Selim III, the French, the English navy, and the Russian navy. The book was well written but the better focus was always on the sailing parts; the part of the story taking place at the Sultan's court was good, but not as sharp a picture. The book had a glossary of terms at the end, but there were many more used that I was completely unfamiliar with. The only one, though, that I felt compelled to look up was foul bottom - which has absolutely nothing to do with diapers that need to be changed!

If you like sailing stories, or military stories from the Napoleonic era, this might be the book for you.

Stockwin back at his best! 18. November 2014
Von Muttley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I thoroughly enjoyed this latest book in the Kydd series, as much as the earlier ones in the series. Kydd and Renzie's relationship has changed owing to Renzie's marriage and elevation to the peerage. Nevertheless their paths continue to intertwine albeit at a different level.This is a well researched book detailing a little known period of Britain's post Trafalgar history. A great read and recommended.

Von Hans - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

The latest novel about Thomas Kydd by Julian Stockwin is somewhat different from the earlier ones. It really consists of two different parts. The first is a really feel good one where our heroes Kydd and Renzi finally get their just deserts and I reallymean just because fame and riches come their way. Now you would Think that this is the end of this long story but far from that. In the second part of the novel it is business as usual. Both our heroes get involved in the somewhat ill fated Operation Dardanelles in 1807. This is not a very well known episode in the British Naval history which is understandable because it did not exactly bring any great glory, rather the opposite. Here is Stockwin at his best combining his eminent grasp of history with a realistic tale of life at sea at all levels. He also writes convincingly about the conflict about chosing the side of a friend or of your country and what it entails.
So another great story from Julian Stockwin which I can highly recommend.

Best regards
Hans
