Overview

The year is 1803. Swashbuckling, ribald, and irreverent hero Ethan Gage has outsmarted wily enemies and survived dangerous challenges across the globe. Now the rakish hero finds himself in the Caribbean with his wife, Astiza, on a desperate hunt to secure the lost treasure of Montezuma - a legendary hoard rumored to have been hidden from Cortes's plundering Spanish conquistadors. Hot on his heels are British agents who want the gold to finance a black slave revolt in Saint-Domingue, robbing hostile France of its richest colony. The French, too, seek the treasure for the secrets it contains, the key to an incredible new means of invasion that can ensure Britain's defeat - on its own land.

I love this series! It is a mixture of fact and fiction, unbelievable circumstances, and is completely entertaining. Ethan Gage started his literary life as a loveable rake and protege to Ben Franklin (yes, the real Ben Franklin!), caught up in so many different adventures that were beyond belief, and has developed into a devout family man who would die for his wife and young son. That's not to say he's completely reformed, since on a few occasions things do cross his mind that the former Ethan Gage would have no hesitation in actually doing. But the new Ethan goes no further than the thought, no matter how he is tempted. If you like adventure, history, mystery, suspense, and so much more, you have to read this book. I can't wait for the next one!

The Emerald Storm by William Dietrich is his 5th Ethan Gage novel. I would call the main character (Ethan) impetuous. I think for this series, it would have helped to have read some of the previous books because I was left with mixed feelings about it when I was done. Mostly I thought it was a good romp, kind of like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, where the main characters seem to always be putting their neck in a noose for our amusement. While there was a lot of humor in the book, it also covered serious topics like racism and freedom rather well. The book takes place mostly in 1803, when Napoleon is conquering Europe and the British are taking over the seas and the United States is thinking about buying Louisiana from the French before the British steal it from them both.Ethan is a pawn to the powers that be and all want a piece of him. Someone kidnaps his son to get him to find an ancient Aztec treasure lost long ago. His travels take him many places and he meets many interesting people and always seems to be one step behind his sons captors, with his fierce wife by his side.Overall I enjoyed the book though after a while I got tired of Ethan always seeming to make the wrong decision whenever he had a choice. I also felt that the ending was not in line with the feel with the rest of the book. The ending was projected a little in advance but still was hard to take. This is why I think reading one of the earlier books would be beneficial, to get a better sense of what goes on.

Weird book! Made NO sense at all. I got to about 100 pages and skipped rest to last page but even then could not figure out what was about!! never again.

This is the 5th installment in the Ethan Gage series set in Napoleonic-era. This story continues the swashbuckling and devil may care life of Ethan as he explores the world at Napoleon's request. This time is different as he has a new wife and son....his actions will have consequences on his family. This creates quite a conundrum but Ethan cannot stop himself from flighty exploration and dreams of wealth. This adventure leaves a real cliff hangar and leads to the next in the series "The Barbed Crown"...will check it out to see how things further evolve.

I received my first Ethan Gage novel as a free book, then proceeded to read all five and am anxiously anticipating the next installment! This is comedy, history, adventure and fantasy rolled so tightly that the reader is hooked from start to finish. Forget the fiscal cliff! Bring me the next Ethan Gage!

Very entertaining, much like the others in the series, but somehow not quite as good. Maybe the novelty of the first few--the roguishness of Ethan and the quirkiness of the savant references--is not as fresh. Still, I would definitely recommend, and will eagerly await the next in the serious.
