Praise for Until the Sea Shall Give Up Her Dead

“S. Thomas Russell spins another swiftly paced and stirring naval adventure, chock full of rich characters and daring exploits set against the vast canvas that was Georgian England under sail.”—Quarterdeck Magazine

“An engrossing entertainment.  The opening could be mistaken for a perfectly crafted romantic historical . . . Never fear, though, devotees of naval battles, there are also pages of tactics and age-of-sail strategizing, many hand-to-hand, black-powder-choked struggles and insanely dangerous harbor raids.  [The novel] is superlatively easy to read, period correct in every detail and crafted by a skillful writer – what’s not to like?”—Historical Novels Review

“Master and Commander Charles Hayden of the Royal British Navy is simply not a character meant for repose, but the challenges he faces in this fourth outing are as emotionally nerve-wracking as they are physically dangerous. . . . [a] marvelous series but also one that humanizes its bold, thoughtful and intrepid captain.”—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Charles Hayden series by S. Thomas Russell
“[Russell is] incredibly skilled at crafting these seafaring adventures. Hayden makes for a rich character whose internal turmoil lends credence to his role as master and commander, while his crew is as varied and interesting as any of Patrick O’Brian’s lot. Another vivid adventure with a tumultuous historical backdrop—not to be missed by fans of pirates and naval strategy or by history buffs.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Historical readers will cherish this strong naval saga with vivid sea battles, strong characterizations, and a deep sense of time and place.” —Midwest Book Review

“Vivid and evocative, especially about what Mr. Russell knows best, the sea and sailing.” —The Wall Street Journal
