  • "Once aboard a frigate, Peter Smalley can be guaranteed to hold his reader a willing captive. This time the adventures of William Rennie and James Hayter take Hayter ashore for much of the time, testing him to almost breaking point, and Smalley's ability to involve proves just as strong there as it is at sea. He is a most powerful story-teller."

  • "What these books are about are old-fashioned concepts such as duty, honour and standing by your friends and knowing what bravery is. They are not demanding, but they are typically exciting, compulsive action adventures. Take one on holiday this year."
