Reviews - What do customers think about Storm Warriors: A Novel (Storm Warriors Series)?

Inspirational novel filled with courage and innovation  Oct 7, 2008
Measure for measure, Storm Warriors is a beacon for the virtues that lift men toward the divine. It is a beautiful story of courage, strength, virtue, and love. Mr. Nappa weaves an imaginative tapestry of the circumstances that could have surrounded the invention of the lifeboat. Bravo!
What Leads People to Risk their Lives for Strangers?  Sep 29, 2008
Only weeks ago, we again saw a community living on a barrier island suffer the misfortune of wind, waves and storm surge, wiping clean a portion of that narrow strip of land known as Galveston Island in Texas. The upside of this recent event is the response from a literal "Army of Volunteers" who braved the storm to rescue those stranded, and who are now helping the homeless in the Texas heat without power, potable water or a comfortable bed. That kind of rescuing spirit is seen time and again: remember the heroes borne of the 9/11 catastrophes. Author Jon Nappa has now documented both hardships and heroics in his new book, "Storm Warriors".

From the opening chapter of "Storm Warriors" we witness heroism in its finest sense, with the life of the hero and his family in constant jeopardy, on a small ship in the English Channel amidst a churning gale. Hidden among the pounding waves is a barrier known as "The Goodwin Sands," a real menace off the coast of Dover that has taken countless ships over the centuries. Nappa's exciting first chapter offers us pages of panic, loss and failed rescue, leaving Lionel Lukin as a survivor. Lukin, like the sandbar, is real, and his contribution to sailing ships is also real - in the book he uses his experience to create a lifeboat, which will save many thousands from the fate he almost experienced in the pounding waves.

We have to coin a new term to define "Storm Warriors" - it is a hybrid of history and historical fiction. Nappa discovered the key to this unique work while prowling through dusty rare books finding an earlier "Storm Warriors" written in 1875 by the Reverend John Gilmore of Ramsgate, England. In his book the Reverend described how the citizens of Ramsgate, which lies across from the Goodwin Sands, learned to take to the lifeboat created by Lukin, risking their own lives to save others from certain death. His lifeboat was not one of the little dinghies ships carry in hopes of saving those on board only to see them become splinters when encountering the Dover gales. Lukin's lifeboat was manned by several men and was strong enough, buoyant enough, to breast the waves, to right itself if capsized, and to bring back the rescued to shore.

Nappa's imagination was fired by the descriptions of this frequent devastation, causing him to blend Gilmore's record with his own believable action-filled, heart-pounding story. Borrowing Gilmore and Lukin from real life, he used them as central characters in his book, surrounded by townspeople who travel from uninvolved scavengers of the shipwrecks visible from their shore, to Storm Warriors, risking their lives on the waves to save strangers. Believably written in the language of a nineteenth century English sea village, Nappa's tribute to heroes of the sea involves you in the action and the characters, keeps your interest, and is (as Gilmore says) "A tale which may well stir...stout hearts to brave and magnificent deeds."
One Fine Book  Sep 22, 2008
This is one fine book to read on one fine day, once you begin reading it you won't want to stop. It's quite moving. It takes place in the 1800s along the coast of England and the characters, setting and story are rich. The author really knows how to spin a yarn. You'll laugh and cry so be prepared. There's an author interview in the back of the book that says there is a sequel coming out called Storm Survivors. I can't wait to see what is next.
A MUST READ  Jun 13, 2008
Nappa is a master storryteller. His extensive character development combines with remarkably natural dialogue to create a powerfully emotional page turner, which will keep you up late nights, and will have you contemplating the true meaning of heroism long after you turn the final page.
Inspiring!! A call to action in your own life.  May 20, 2008
It has been a long time since I have picked up a book that touches my heart so deeply that I am inspired to make changes in my own life. From the very beginning Jon Nappa captures your senses. So descriptive, I felt as if I were on the rocking ships and sharing an ale with the Storm Warriors at Cannon's! I went from crying to cheering as I read this book without being able to set it down. In my opinion, the greatest accomplishment in the writing of this book is the question you are led to ask yourself. It is the same question Lionel Lukin asked, "Must it be that only by suffering personal tragedy will a man at last be moved to answer the cries around him?" (pg. 226) As I set it down, tears in my eyes, I realized that I must personally be a Storm Warrior and reach out to people who need me. We can all make a difference! With highest recommendation, I urge you to pick up this book and become absorbed in it!
