Publisher's Summary

The sun went down behind the storm clouds, and stained them with its blood, then the rain fell upon the ship in torrents. Solid sheets of water hammered the wooden decks so hard that the din drowned the men's voices and blotted out their vision.  

They leave as brothers. They must return as men.  

Famed sailor Hal Courtney is now a man of land and family. But when the King orders him to sail to Madagascar and stop the pirates responsible for looting the finest trading ships of the East India Trading Company and bringing ruin to them all, Hal must travel with his three younger sons on a journey that will shape the young men forever.  

In this swashbuckling adventure of marauders and slave traders, love and treasure, the brothers will face duels, chases, betrayals and battles - and see their fates cast in ways they could never have imagined....  

A Courtney Series adventure - book two in the Birds of Prey trilogy.

Yet another epic story by Wilbur Smith.

I started with River God and read many in that series as well as The Courtney’s saga and every single one is amazing. I’ve gone back and reread some favorite authors and they don’t compare.

I love Wilbur Smith

Fantastic story. Great characters, wonderful time period, marvelous descriptions of a seaman's life, and a fun learning experience of the Arab way of life. Just so much fun to read.

Perhaps the best Wilber Smith book I’ve read.

I have done many Wilber Smith books over the years but I think this was the best to date.

Adventure, Adventure, and MORE Adventure!

There were so many places that Mr Smith (RIP) could have ended this and I would've been completely satisfied. But the wonderful story went on. Packed with the best kind of, Wilbur Smith adventure, and excitement that made so many fans love him. Monsoon is my favorite of The Courtney series so far.
Did I mention adventure? Enjoy...

not a good book but an entertaining one

deeply flawed, one dimensional cliche characters that are razor thin, but still an adventurous page turner that provides a good bit of escape.
