…. KYDD by Julian Stockwin.
I really enjoyed this adventure story. From the harsh and sometimes shocking reality of life aboard a naval ship, to the camaraderie that develops between Kydd and some of his fellow shipmates, I was totally hooked by Julian Stockwin’s tale.
From the off, I was drawn into the story, fascinated by the insight the author gives the reader into what life must have been like aboard one of His Majesty’s ships. Whilst the sea-faring talk took a couple of chapters for me to get to grips with, it only helped to add depth and flavour to the story, helping to set the scene for the future adventures of Thomas Kydd.
I, for one, shall certainly be setting sail on future adventures with Julian Stockwin.
