Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tragedy has decimated Tim Blackburn's safe and comfortable existence. Having already lost a son in a terrorist attack, he must now cope with the death of his beloved wife, killed in a mysterious explosion at sea. And all that remains of his destroyed family is his missing daughter Nicole, last seen in the company of Caspar von Rellsteb — the mad, charismatic leader of the shadowy environmental activist group called Genesis — who keeps an iron-fisted hold over his fanatically dedicated followers. Determined to free Nicole from the crazed, self-proclaimed "protector of the planet," Tim sets sail aboard the sloop Stormchild, with the beautiful, story-hungry journalist Jackie Potten. But their hunt for the hidden lair of Genesis is leading them into dangerous and terrifying waters — and the darkness that waits for Tim Blackburn on the far side of the world could destroy both his sanity and his soul.

Review:

"Cornwell unleashes danger and violence...and terrible revelations before a lethal confrontation off Cape Horn. Lots of sailing action — which may confuse some landlubbers — and a nice, quirky love story round out this page-turner." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Ridiculously exciting adventure in splendid scenery." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Tim Blackburn fears that his daughter, Nicole, may be more than a prisoner of a cultish group of activists some might call terrorists. With an American journalist, who wants the inside story on the group, Tim sets sail to rescue Nicole — a quest that takes him to the hellish coast of Patagonia.

Synopsis:

“[A] page-turner….Cornwell unleashes danger and violence, from both man and nature.”
—Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Bernard Cornwell is to the yachting adventure novel what ex-jockey Dick Francis is to the racetrack thriller.”
—Orlando Sentinel

The New York Times bestselling author of The Fort, the Saxon Tales, and the immensely popular Richard Sharpe novels, Bernard Cornwell has been called, “perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today” (Washington Post). He demonstrates another side of his extraordinary storytelling talents with Stormchild, a contemporary tale of danger on the high and treacherous seas. The gripping story of a man who has lost almost everything in his life and now must race across perilous waters aboard his sloop Stormchild in a desperate attempt to rescue his daughter from the clutches of a shadowy cult and its mad leader. As relentlessly exciting as a Tom Clancy thriller, Stormchild is a masterwork of suspense from one of todays most versatile and accomplished popular novelists.
