More Peril but Sailing Through

This is a very entertaining series, and Tenacious continues the story. It is amazing how Kydd continues to advance, in spite of the dislike from commanders on his own side. He seems constantly in peril from both the enemy and the British.

Carries on the tradition

Really liked this sequel and look forward to the next. Love the historical research but also the geography lesson one receives as the series continues

Great book, with a small problem.

Just like with "Quarterdeck", a problem with the immersion reading starts with the 7th chapter.
There is no problem with the Audible version, but if you like to read and listen at the same time, there is a problem.
The audio reports a download problem while the moving words keep going. By the time the audio starts again, the moving words are a whole page ahead!
I think it was originally recorded on tape and then transferred to digital without realizing that there was a problem.
You can work around this, but it is a little annoying to have to turn the page by hand. And read the smaller type while listening.
I first read this book 15 years ago and it is just as good as the first time!

Wonderful

Fantastic narration. Rodska's performance as always is exceptional! Stockwin delivers an epic. The great battle of the Nile, Nelson, and Napoleon.

Bang! A Genuine Triumph!

This is an excellent series, genuinely. Historical detail, fine research and a narrator with the ability to bring it all to life. Tenacious though is so far for me the absolute pinnacle of this series. Stockwin once again blends his characters superbly with real historical events without ever re-writing them significantly to give his inventions too much prominence. He finds some clever ways of involving Kydd in the drama including the titanic Battle of the Nile.

And this isn't just about the action, Kydd's torturous attempts to become a gentlemen and Renzi's constant battles with the demons and real illness that afflict his tortured soul make this a genuinely multi-faceted story.

Thrilling, historically accurate and genuinely well-written. Bravo Messrs Stockwin and Rodska, take a bow!

Unbeatable partnership

Julian Stockwin and Christian Rodska compliment each other to make every book in the series an absolute joy to listen to. The writing is superb, and the narration breathes life into the drama and action.
