Amos Lassen reviews Men of Honor

"I feel very lucky to have been asked to review several books by M. Kei.

"In the first book I reviewed, “Pirates of the Narrow Seas: The Sallee Rovers”, I discovered what I have been missing. Kei is a terrific writer and a wonderful storyteller and he writes about something I know nothing about, naval historical fiction, so I must also classify him as a teacher. Now what is special about this naval historical fiction is that Kei writes with a gay twist and even though his novels are set in a different time period from where we live, everything is very realistic and that is one of the many attributes of the writer. Another is his ability to create characters that are very real."

Amos Lassen reviews The Sallee Rovers

"It has been a long time since I read a good pirate story so I was anxious to read this tale of mayhem and adventure. It kept me on the edge of my seat and M. Kei gives us a wonderful new character in Lieutenant Peter Thorton, a closeted member of the British Navy who struggles with coming out while he manipulates battles and storms, duels and a kidnapping as well as his own search for both honor and love. The best is that this is to be part of a series so there are more coming. I have a feeling that I will become a true follower of Peter Thorton."
