"[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 today's most versatile and accomplished popular novelists.
