    Without doubt, this is my favourite English Civil War series and Warlord s Gold is a fine addition to it Above all else, it is a thoroughly enjoyable and thrilling adventure but what sets it above and beyond are the characters of Stryker, Lisette, Stryker s men and those of the men they must face Fabulous

    So this is book five in Mike Arnold s civil war series and I ve been reading and reviewing since book 1 What can I say that I haven t already said This series is promoted as the Sharpe of the Civil War In truth, though I love my Bernard Cornwell series, we are rapidly approaching the point where dear Captain Major Colonel Sharpe is actually the Stryker of the Napoleonic Wars For me, Captain Innocent Stryker has now become one of the quintessential characters that define modern historical So this is book five in Mike Arnold s civil war series and I ve been reading and reviewing since book 1 What can I say that I haven t already said This series is promoted as the Sharpe of the Civil War In truth, though I love my Bernard Cornwell series, we are rapidly approaching the point where dear Captain Major Colonel Sharpe is actually the Stryker of the Napoleonic Wars For me, Captain Innocent Stryker has now become one of the quintessential characters that define modern historical fiction Macro and Cato, Alan Dale, Valerius, Hatton Roumande, Two knives, Raven, Jack Lark, Orm and Stryker.Arnold was unpredictable, I feel, in his first three books, in that though each one was an engrossing and rivetting read, they varied between books that were breakneck action, complex hunts, character driven pieces and so on By book 3 he had largely hit his stride of combining every stunning aspect into one novel Book 4 Assassin s Reign was a superb masterpiece of the genre and showed that he had crested the wave and could be relied upon to keep up the standard in every way Book 5 confirms that.Warlord s Gold not only hits the spot in every aspect of historical fiction, it is also Arnold s tightest, well resolved and yet most wide ranging plot yet Our story begins with two distinct threads ignoring bad guys that we know are going to converge with one or the other , with Stryker in the Scillies and Forrester my personal fave character heading south from Oxford on a special mission For a lot of the book I presumed this was going to be the way of things, with two stories being told concurrently, each with their own heroes, villains and plots And yet Arnold seamlessly joins them during the tale, bringing them together into a siege situation the like of which a lover of Zulu would enjoy.Enough on the plot and writing style Suffice it to say, the plot is extremely well crafted, while the writing style is so comfortable and enticing that it is easy to get lost in the tale Even with a busy life and demanding children, I finished the book in 3 days.Since my era of choice is Rome, this Civil War series teaches me something with almosy every chapter, and I come away after a Mike Arnold bookinsufferably knowledgable than ever I was before Even just in the use of language sotweed, dragooners, lobsters and so on But for me, no matter what else good I can say of this series, Arnold s strength that makes him stand out among peers is his characters He is capable of creatin such vivid characters that even half way into their first scene the reader can thoroughly visualise them in their head Stryker and Forry are prime examples of this, and carry from book to book, with Stryker being easily one of the top 3 most memorable characters in the whole genre for me But even one shot villains or supporting characters in these books are so vivid and clear that they steal the stage from one another at every turn In fact, I would go so far as to say that Arnold creates the most impressive complete nutcases in the literary world In this particular book we meet a thoroughly disreputable and enjoyable smuggler turned privateer, a misshapen vengeful lunatic though you might know him , a zealous Balkan killer, a reluctant military commander with the heart of a lion andIt really is a treat to read in terms of character.The less said about the plot the better, for fear of spoilers, but it will be giving nothing away to those who have read the first four and have seen the book s title that this one revolves around Cade s missing treasure and its recovery In fact it is something of a race between two parties to deliver the gold to their opposing masters, with action all around the south coast this time, ranging from Basing House in Hampshire to the Scilly Isles One thing for sure is that you cannot predict the path of the plot, so don t try.In short, Arnold has become a master of his art, and this book just shows it This review is redundant for anyone who s read the rest of the series If you ve read books 1 4, you ve had book 5 on pre order anyway, I m pretty damn sure If not, then you ve not read any of these WHY Go out and buy them all at once Don t waste time where you might have to wait for the next book to be delivered Take my advice and get them all now.A thoroughly absorbing masterpiece that deserves to hit the top and stay there

    Arnold has Stryker back where he belongs in a swashbuckling adventure filled with evil doers, gold and blood Volume 4 had me worried that Arnold had lost his sense of adventure and fun, sticking his protagonist in a necessarily dull siege but Warlord s Gold is muchlike it Tbe Civil War has begun to turn away from the Royalists as The Parliament slowly gains the advantage and the inevitable regicide There is a lot of history left in the Civil Wars, however, and Michael Arnold can spin Arnold has Stryker back where he belongs in a swashbuckling adventure filled with evil doers, gold and blood Volume 4 had me worried that Arnold had lost his sense of adventure and fun, sticking his protagonist in a necessarily dull siege but Warlord s Gold is muchlike it Tbe Civil War has begun to turn away from the Royalists as The Parliament slowly gains the advantage and the inevitable regicide There is a lot of history left in the Civil Wars, however, and Michael Arnold can spin this story out for years Which I hope continues to be a good thing
