Publisher's Summary

Superbly narrated by British actor Nigel Gore, The Dragons of the Storm follows directly on from where The Weight of Smoke left off. Captain John Smith has been stabbed by a stingray and falls deathly ill. The old alchemist and mariner, Jonas Profit, doctors his wound, and to ease Smith’s suffering tells of the daring circumnavigation of the world by Francis Drake, 1577-1580. 

A masterful interweaving of all the elements that contributed to the birth of the British Empire.    

The Dragons of the Storm is as enthralling as The Weight of Smoke. I think John Smith and Francis Drake would rejoice in George Minkoff’s lively re-creation of them.” (Edmund Sears Morgan, Yale University historian) 

“Historically accurate, inventive in its language, and filled with exciting and epochal event, The Dragons of the Storm is a worthy successor to The Weight of Smoke.” (Peyton Moss, ForeWord Magazine

The Dragons of the Storm is a tour de force of sailing literature, focused on Drake’s circumnavigation of the world. Embedded in the story of John Smith’s Jamestown, it adds remarkable counterpoint and stretches to encompass not just the exploration of North America, but the Age of Exploration as well. Beautiful, riveting, and sweeping.” (Walter Bode, editor)
