"These many stories, written long ago by Italian writer Emilio Salgari, a Jules Verne equal, evoke great images of swashbuckling adventuress in anyone with imagination and dreams of adventure. They are an excellent exercise for the imagination and better reading than much of what is published nowadays for action readers of all ages. An excellent gift for anyone from 5 to 50...." ~ M. Lackner, Amazon.com
"There is enough action in The King of the Sea to keep the reader turning its pages, a love component, a Jules Verne type of genius character with a marvelous invention he uses to combat Sandokan’s enemies, and a fine surprise ending. All in all, The King of the Sea is a satisfying addition to a thrilling saga." ~Victor Rodriguez, Reviewer on Amazon.com, February 2, 2019
