Présentation de l'éditeur

In a nuclear wasteland where death and destruction are the norm, Ryan Cawdor and his fellow survivors seek out refuge while looking to one another for protection. Civilization no longer exists in the barren Deathlands. There is only the will to survive and the dim hope of a promised land. Taken captive on a ship in the former Caribbean, Ryan and his companions must work as part of the crew or perish at the hands of the captain. But the mutant in charge of the vessel is the least of their worries. Each day is a struggle as they face rivalry among the sailors, violent attacks and deadly storms. Worse, a powerful enemy is hunting the ship to destroy everyone on board.

Fighting for their lives and those of their shipmates, the companions must find unity within the chaos or die in the attempt.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Jump Aboard the Bloody Jolly Roger!! 2 septembre 2014

Jump Aboard the Bloody Jolly Roger!!

One of the all-time best authors of Deathlands returns for yet another epic adventure that is sure to thrill the long-time fans like us, as well as any newbie. Chuck Rogers return for his 3rd and much anticipated latest DL novel, and it sails as one of the all-time best adventures the DL companions have had in quite a while. This really would have been much better as a duology, at the very least.

But, as great as it was, it had lots of editorial mistakes in it, and of various kinds. And there were a few issues, although small we suppose, that could have made this that much better. We wished that Jak Lauren had been a bigger part in this book. He's hardly even mentioned. It seems his odd looks are not much noticed these days, like they were back in the day. We would really think so, especially when aboard a ship of muties. Ricky was used well here, but he too mostly disappeared in the latter part of the book.

Also, there was too little time spent on the main bad guys in this book. Rogers fashions interesting enemies, a family called Sabbath, but they only manage to be in two or three chapters total. It made the book feel rushed, since the author's only have about 308 pages to tell a tale in. Too bad. This, along with other things depicted in this particular book, could have easily played out for another book or two, savoring the rich details that author Rogers tempts the reader with. From rich background stories of other lands after the nuke, to the background stories of the Sabbath family, to the background stories of the mutant captain and some of his ship mates aboard the Glory. It is in these tidbits that author Rogers really shines, giving the reader a sense of wonder and teasing the reader for a hopeful return to these sea tales of other lands.

We loved this book from beginning to end, because this particular author seems to truly understand the companion's background in detail. Right down to their sometimes forgotten clothing, like Ryan's mostly forgotten scarf/garrote. Even though he doesn't use it in this book, it is the fact that this author even mentioned it, that shows he pays particular attention to detail.

And another great thing about this particular author: he's a game changer. He's intelligent enough to know, (or listen to us fans bitching about it long enough), to place bigger and/or better weapons in the companion's hands, or know when it is finally time to throw those old boots away. LOVE THIS! More of this please!

Another special tidbit about this particular book is the usage of the muties. Typically they are just a tool to be used for the companions to kill. Author Rogers comes up with a much-needed fresh idea that we loved, and we think you will as well. (No spoilers here.) Suffice it to say, it was not only refreshing, but stylistically done. This was done with aplomb, and the best usage we've seen in BOTH series of Deathlands or Outlanders. (GE really needs to pay this particular author more bucks for making this series up its ante, and pay him more to do the same with it's sister series, Outlanders.)

Author Chuck Rogers' storytelling style fits this series to a capitol T. It is never dull or boring or plain stupid. Both in concept, character-driven, and well choreographed action scenes, both big and small scale. He has the goods. (Again, though, as great an action writers as he is, it did disappoint us that he didn't showcase Jak's combat skill set to its optimum. And we felt kinda cheated when Krysty finally called upon her Gaia powers to face a huge enemy that Roger's built up, but then never showed the outcome. He kicked her butt once, and we were awaiting to read the vengeance ass-kicking she was about to deliver - but it was never shown.) Other than those hiccups, all the action scenes were top-notch, different, varied, and very well done. Just what one expects from one of the top-notch action/adventure writers working today.

But it's not just Roger's wonderful action scenes, or his attention to detail, both in weaponry and the map of the post-holocaust southern hemisphere regions, it is wonderful writing acumen in making the DL companions much more than just warriors. He makes them truly human and multidimensional in character development. We've been craving this and bitching about it long enough, and it seems some authors take it to heart and understand the need and basic understanding of it. The readers will care more for characters who are much more than wooden killing machines. And Roger's does this with ALL of the companions, not just a select one or two. (Although he didn't with Jak this time around. But at least he did it in his other two books.)

We loved the various kinds of humans and muties that ran the Glory ship that Ryan and his companions are taken captive on. We also like an author who is not afraid of showing Ryan get his butt kicked every once in a while. An author who is smart enough to get superior weapons in the hands of a group of people who are, by far and away, trained combat vets by now. An author who surprises and awes you - even after almost 120 DL books and nearly 30 years later! (No small feat there.)

We especially liked the numerous turn of events in this book. When you think the storyline is going in the typical straight and narrow way, ie, companions taken captive, shuck their chains, kick butt on crew. End of story. WRONG!

Thank you sooooo much Chuck Rogers for your major contributions to this series.

As always, we very much look forward to your next adventure. Hope it doesn't take nearly as long.

Anywho, despite the numerous editorial mistakes, the lack of deadly usage of Jak and Ricky, and the too-rushed feeling of the main and colorful bad guys, Blood Red Tide truly stands out as one of the strongest stories in the annals of the Deathlands saga.

Oh.MyGod. This is why I dont throw the towel in on Deathlands. My Very fav series for 20 some odd yrs. Chuck Rogers 3rd entry I believe. Hard to believe he tops hell road warriors ... But he decimated it! About time " author credit" shows up inside the book. Dunno about the new logo and younger looking Ryan... But if that is the tradeoff for THIS kinda story... Hells yeah!!! This is VERY remicent of Laurence James entries. And he WAS the king of DL!!( RIP) More pls MR ROGERS!!!!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Blood Red Tide - fits this one to a "T"...Great Deathlands story.... 12 septembre 2014

I've read just about all of the (Deathlands) series of books, and this is one of the better ones. A really great read, and the ending is just about right. Can't wait until the next one.
Ryan and his group exit a redoubt to find themselves captured and taken aboard a sailing ship like none ever seen but only read about. And it is learn and earn just to survive, and survive they do and I'm not going to spoil this one folks, only say that it is a must read and will keep you on the edge of your seat front to back. Read it...you won't be sorry that you did.

Chuck Rogers. That is all you need to know.

Its been quite a while since I enjoyed a Deathlands book enough to read it more than once. In a novel series that's been rehashed more than Survivor the TV show it's refreshing to see a new storyline. If you've taken a break from the series then this is a great place to jump back in. Looking forward to more from this author.
