Publisher's Summary

An epic story of nautical adventure and a battle for freedom by the master of adventure fiction.

1774: Rob Courtney is growing up in Fort Auspice, Nativity Bay, a trading outpost on the east coast of Africa, and has always dreamed of going to sea. When his grandfather Jim Courtney dies and the mysterious Captain Marston calls into the fort, Rob's passion is ignited, and he stows away on Marston's ship as it sails to England.

Arriving in London, Rob is seduced by its charms and makes friends with a group of fast-living men and ends up in terrible debt. Desperate and penniless, Rob can see no way out. That is until the navy comes calling. Rob enlists and is taken downriver to join a ship ready to cross the Atlantic and join the growing war against the rebellious American colonists.

Meanwhile, in America, Theo Courtney's two sons are coming of age in a society ever more divided between those loyal to the crown and those who seek independence for the American colonies. Even the family is divided, with Theo's oldest son, Cal, an ardent American patriot, while Theo himself feels a strong tie to his mother country, England. When he sees his younger brother, Aidan, killed in a fierce battle with the British troops, Cal vows he will not rest until he has avenged his brother's death by driving the British out of America - once and for all....

A powerful new thriller by the master of adventure fiction, Wilbur Smith, of families divided and a country on the brink of revolution.

I have always loved Wilbur Smiths novels and this one, again, did not disappoint. Action from beginning to end. I will miss his writings. RIP Wilbur, and thank you.

A good story with jumps in credibility !

I enjoy Wilbur Smith's books but must confess this one left me a little dissatisfied. As usual Sean Barrett's reading is excellent but the story left quite a bit to be desired. A great listen if you're not a history nut !

Brilliant series

Fairly new to audible books, but I’m really enjoying the Courtney series, and for me this has been the best yet, fantastic!! The Narrator, Sean Barrett, is excellent too. Great stuff!

A wilbur Smith book of old.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book and reminded me of Wilbur Smith books of old. A very good seafaring novel that kept me hooked from the start.

An excellent tale well told

As usual,Wilbur Smith’s tale is full of twists and turns, exquisitely painted in fine prose. I enjoyed every minute.

A series of highly unlikely events…

It’s a series of highly unlikely events brought together in a very familiar and enjoyable style. Maybe a couple of the ‘coincidences’ could have been removed without affecting the story. Overall though, really enjoyable in a classic Wilbur Smith kind of way.

Another wonderful chapter in this family saga

Soon as I saw this next chapter in this series, I just couldn’t wait to start it, but at the same time, dreaded ending it as that meant I would have to wait for the next chapter to fill in the gaps. All I can say, is if you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed, from start to finish your heart will be in your mouth, and you will be wondering who will win? Good, or evil.

One of the best purchases that I have made on Audi

I was captivated by the story from the first chapter. Super narration.
The plot mesmerising.
