Wilbur Smith as always writes a gripping story that holds your attention from beginning to end. I couldn’t believe it was already over when I looked and saw it was then end of the 17th chapter already. His descriptions are amazing

I decided before I listened to this to go back and listen/read each of the early Courteney books in order. It had been such a long time since they first came out that I wanted to catch up on the characters again, so I could remember who was who. So, I ended that trek down memory lane with Blue Horizon, thinking thinking that Tiger's Prey would be the next installment because it was written so much later. However, as I started listening, I realized that Blue Horizon actually comes after this one. Go figure? Some of the characters that were killed off in Blue Horizon are still around in Tiger's Prey and are an integral part of the story. I have mixed feelings about Wilbur Smith's novels. I love the adventures, but I am really turned off by the graphic violence and the graphic sex becomes quite boring. At least I can fast forward past those parts. They are really swashbucklers and the characters are interesting. Mike Grady is an excellent narrator and captures each character really well and makes them multi-dimensional. I like historical fiction and non fiction because it always makes me realize that no matter how we view our present times I realize how lucky we are to live now and how much life has improved.

The author should call it a day. A nine year old would find this book boring.
not one of his best. had its moments, but felt contrived. ah well still looking forward to the next one.
Ties up a few loose ends but misses any memorable characters and seems more about setting up a storyline for the next gen of Courtneys. Stick to the first three books in the series.
The fist Smith book I have read for years, I thought it was below some of hi classics I may listen to again see if it’s better second time around. But it was entertaining.
