Reviews

Praise for "Reefs and Shoals: "Praise for the Alan Lewrie Series: Praise for "Reefs and Shoals: ""Check the log, shipmate: Dewey Lambdin has left Alexander Kent and C.S. Forester hull-down in an ocean of words and is closing on Patrick O'Brian as the most prolific historical novelist to celebrate a Royal Navy mariner during the age of sail."--"Washington Times ""Lewrie's a worthy shipmate for Aubrey and Hornblower."--"Kirkus Reviews ""Lambdin succeeds with high-seas action, bravado, and Lewrie's characteristic antics, putting himself in good company with Julian Stockwin and Seth Hunter as worthy successors to the popular 18th- and 19th-century naval adventures of Forester, Kent, and Pope. ... Lewrie is a delightfully randy and irreverent character, the perfect man to walk the quarterdeck of a Royal Navy frigate."--"Publishers Weekly "(starred review) "A hugely entertaining naval adventure (a la Forester and O'Brian) with a different kind of protagonist. ... Not merely a worthy entry in the very popular Lewrie series but a top-of-the-line naval adventure that can be thoroughly enjoyed by readers who've never met Captain Lewrie until now."--"Booklist ""Naval adventures in the time of wooden ships and iron men form a distinct literary genre. Nashville novelist Dewey Lambdin has mastered it.""--Chapter 16 ""Dewey Lambdin may well be the best author of Age of Sail fiction currently practicing the art. ... Lambdin's writing skills are a perfect for his research. His well-chosen words capture the feel, the tang, almost the taste of the moment. His characters are immensely believable, either drawn from the pages of history or evocative of the cads, scamps, and occasional good friends that we mee in life. ... Let none have uncertainties about Dewey Lambdin or his Alan Lewire: 'hearts of oak' both! "Reefs and Shoals "(and the entire series of novels) is heartily recommended to lubbers and sailors alike.)"--"United States Naval Institute "Praise for the Alan Lewrie Series: "The brilliantly stylish American master of salty-tongued British naval tales."--"Kirkus Reviews ""You could get addicted to this series. Easily."--"The New York Times Book Review ""The best naval adventure series since C. S. Forester."--"Library Journal ""Stunning naval adventure, reeking of powder and mayhem. I wish I had written this series." --Bernard Cornwell "Lewrie is a marvelous creation, resourceful and bold."--James L. Nelson, author of the Revolution at Sea Saga "Lewrie is an endearing character-hero, philanderer, smuggler, spy: a courageous naval officer unencumbered by high morals or indecision."--"Publishers Weekly" Praise for "Reefs and Shoals: ""Check the log, shipmate: Dewey Lambdin has left Alexander Kent and C.S.
