    One thought on “Captain Shelby”

    1. Captain Shelby is the follow up novel to Pelican Bay and centers around Nereus (Captain Shelby). Although, instead of the story being continued from the last novel, the reader instead goes backward in time to see some of Captain Shelby's adventures from the past. I like how Christiansen wove details in history through his story. For example, adding in Eric the Red as a side character. I also enjoyed the time shift between certain chapters that allowed you to read two different time lines within [...]

    2. The basic premise of the description of this novel was interesting, but sadly the novel fails to really deliver. You’ve got several story threads running through in a confused tangle that is made yet more bizarre by the writer’s style. I could enumerate quite a few problems with the plot, the writing and so on, but I’m going to focus on a few points that I felt were the most problematic to me.Cannibalism is one of those things that authors like putting in to provide a thrill of horror to t [...]

    3. As a caution up front the story has much of the dialogue written in Early Modern English, which was spoken at the time the story took place and bits in Old Norse due to Captain Shelby's heritage. This may cause some to find the story less enjoyable, but personally it lent the story a more realistic feel to me and pulled me farther into the setting and timeline.This story takes us to the life known by a a much younger version of Captain Shelby, long before he donned his hat and took to the sea. T [...]

    4. “Laura laughed and the soft echoes of her laughter were immediately stolen by the Atlantic breeze and swept away to sea.”Once again Captain Shelby comes to life, but this time more human, more real almost as if he had decided to step out of the confines of words and phrases. His dialogues mingle with the sea and for a change he feels. He feels the fragrant breeze tugging at his heartstrings, from which emerges a gentle drizzle of prose leaving the reader gripped in the intensity of myth and [...]

    5. Dollycas’s ThoughtsEthan Hodges shares Captain Nereus H. Shelby’s stories. He states his “accounts come from both dreams about him and from reality.” The prologue ends with “remember that with the greatest moments throughout history reality has often mirrored dreams. And also remember that all dreams ultimately come from reality.”I absolutely love the way Jesse Giles Christiansen writes. After reading Pelican Bay I realized how easy it was to just let go and follow the story where it [...]

    6. 4 STARS Captain Shelby story draws you into the story very easily. It also weaves back and forth into history of one character than another as they merge together. It is dramatic, action and romance as they seek to make a better future for themselves. Nereus is from Denmark and builds a longship and leaves at 18 to sail across the North Atlantic. Skraelings are the Inuit indigenous people where they land in the New world. They are not happy to see the white people in the boats. William Brockelby [...]

    7. A great historical mystery. Nereus is hired to help a group of irish settlers across the ocean. During the trip many battles are fought. Then He falls in love with Laura. The problem is that she is already engaged. Danger is every where and the secret of the captain is comes out.It was a very interesting story. Like a mythology/mystery story. I liked it. I am planing on reading more from this author.

    8. This is a great historical novel filled with suspense and murder! You will want to keep reading through the night. Jesse has brought the characters to life and they are strong and vibrant. The Plot is intriguing and captivating.

    9. This is a great book. I really enjoyed the unique characters and the story grabbed me right from the start. It is the perfect mix between mystery and historical fiction.
