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.

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!
