The Tiger Roars again!

Malaysia, 1852. Sandokan and Yanez are back, righting injustices and fighting old foes. Tremal-Naik's misfortunes have continued. Wrongfully imprisoned, the great hunter has been banished from India and sentenced to life in a penal colony. Knowing his master is innocent, Kammamuri dashes off to the rescue, planning to free the good hunter at the first opportunity. When the ever-loyal servant is captured by the Tigers of Mompracem, he manages to enlist their services. But in order to succeed, Sandokan and Yanez must lead their men against the forces of James Brooke, 'The Exterminator', the dreaded White Rajah of Sarawak.

About the Author

Salgari dayaki Emilio Salgari (1862-1911) was a writer of action adventure swashbucklers and a pioneer of Italian science fiction. He is one of Italy's most translated authors and is considered the father of Italian adventure fiction and the grandfather of the Spaghetti Western. He wrote more than 200 adventure novels and short stories, many of which are considered classics in Europe and Latin America. In 1897, he was named Knight of the Order of the Crown of Italy for his contributions to popular Italian literature.

"Endless thrills and chills." ~Victor Rodriguez, Reviewer on Amazon.com, May 11, 2018

"From the harrowing ordeal of a shipwreck to the exoticjungles of Borneo to the fetid hold of a convict ship, Salgari takes the readeron an adventure with more twists, thrills, and frights than a roller coaster ora haunted house." ~Cindy Vallar, The Bookaneer, Pirates and Privateers.

"Wild adventure, fights against incredible odds, nefarious enemies and courageous, brawny allies make this another wonderful read. " ~Georges T. Dodds, SF Site

"Another rip-roaring, swashbuckling adventure from Salgari with battles at sea, deadly traps, shipwrecks, cannibals, jungle hideouts and a fetid convict ship. I enjoyed being swept back in time and across the seas. Also Lorenzutti’s translation is smooth and seamless which means we never miss a beat or flow of all the twists and turns." ~Jessica, The Bookworm Chronicles
