Review:

Look up "classic adventure novel" in the dictionary and you'll find the strong and capable features of South Africa's own Wilbur Smith, who--in books as varied and enjoyable as River God, The Seventh Scroll, When the Lion Feeds, and The Diamond Hunters--displays an awesome storytelling ability. His latest is one of his best efforts: a richly detailed story of war and piracy on the high seas in 1667, 150 years before Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey and Maturin books

Review:

"Constant excitement...ƯA fast-moving tale. What could be better for the beach or backyard?"--"The Washington Post Book World" "ƯA rousing adventure story...Smith is a captivating storyteller."--"Orlando Sentinel" ""Birds of Prey" is a wonderful novel filled with excitement, pirates and vivid sea battles. The heroes are handsome and memorable and overcome tremendous odds to defeat unscrupulous enemies, to remain honorable and wise and always win the fair maiden in the end...In short, it is vintage Wilbur Smith."--"Times Record News" (Wichita Falls, TX)
