He regularly writes in collaboration with his son James Morcan, an actor, writer, podcast host and producer who resides in Sydney, Australia. Together they have published many books as a team – thrillers, action adventure, historical fiction, and non-fiction. The Morcans know how to deliver intrigue and adventure and romance, and this box set delivers on all accounts. The individual books are WHITE SPIRIT and INTO THE AMERICAS - both novels based on true stories, and WORLD ODYSSEY and FIJI – a diptych that is pure fictional novel. Each book is set in the 19th century and surveys not only a fine story but also an insightful overview of different cultures, customs, and character traits that reflect the various area settings of the stories. This a handsome set of books, a series that bears spending time absorbing. The Kindle edition is great in that it allows the reader to take all four books on personal journeys of each reader, enhancing time on the airplane or in lodging while exploring journeys of reality and history during those valued times away form home and the realities of the world! This a very strong set, and one recommended for personal use and for perfect gifts for the coming holidays! FOUR HISTORICAL ADVENTURES proves once again that the Morcans are a very fine writing team. These are stories that plead to be films – and perhaps that will happen, as James is also a screenwriter! Highly recommended.

Well written with vivid details, intense prose and interesting history of the Aboriginal people. I got to learn how one man incorporated himself in this tribe, how he lived his life and the obstacles he faced. I learned so many new things about the Aborigines. (I) found John likable and enjoyed this fascinating, compelling story. Into the Americas (A novel based on a true story) By Lance Morcan and James Morcan Based on a true story (by the diary) of English blacksmith John Jewitt during his time aboard The Boston and his time at Nootka Sound, on North America's Western seaboard (from 1802 to 1805). A fascinating story of one young mans courageous voyage. Well written with attention to detail, we really get the feel of what young John went through. The characters are based on real people, which adds to the intense drama. The dialog and events are true to that era. Interesting, gripping a good read. World Odyssey (The World Duology, #1) by Lance Morcan Set in the 19th century, Nathan Johnson, Jack Halliday & Missionary Susannah Drake each for their own reasons are set to sea. Nathan the only American is off on an adventure of his life, Jack Halliday is sentenced by the British government for stealing hemp, and Susannah Drake, sets off on a mission with her Minister father. They all end up on the island of Fiji. Along the way they face danger, pirates, murder, death, interesting and (some) dangerous people, as they sail around the globe. Well written with great detail. I felt as if I were a passenger, watching and setting port in exotic locales. Susannah with her naive ways is likable, Nathan has character and Jack has likable traits as well. An adventurous read. Fiji (The World Duology, #2) by Lance Morcan Susannah Drake and her widowed father are missionaries traveling to the Island of Fiji. Their mission is to spread the word on Christianity. Nathan Johnson is a trader and he too goes to the Island. Once there the missionaries find that the Island is not civilized and danger lurks everywhere. Violence is common and occurs too often. The (Vivid) descriptions of this Island and the story line were interesting and it was a fast read. A bit graphic (violence) at times but interesting enough to keep me wanting to see how the story unfolds. Overall I enjoyed this story and feel others will as well.

    4 incredible novels by two very talented Authors. I couldn’t even say with of the books I enjoyed the most because they were all so entertaining and are written in such a way that you could picture yourself going along on the adventure with the characters. There are so many hours of enjoyment in these 4 stories, and they are all easily worth the 5/5 Star rating. Brilliant!! Verified Purchase Amazon Australia

    Four historical adventure books in one. The lengthy books are detailed and descriptive and you could feel their pain, hunger and at times desperation through the pages. The four main characters' experience was similar but different, each having an impact on the tribe who 'adopted' them. It also gives you a very good idea of how tough life was in general. It is filled with suspense, some light-hearted humor, romance and lots of adventure. Each book is motivated by true events and real people that Four historical adventure books in one. The lengthy books are detailed and descriptive and you could feel their pain, hunger and at times desperation through the pages.

It is filled with suspense, some light-hearted humor, romance and lots of adventure. Each book is motivated by true events and real people that left their footprints on the earth. As always the author-team captured my imagination as I experience life with the main characters. The only problem I experienced with the four books was the outlay. The books are flowing into each other with no definite end and beginning which would make this confusing. Since I have read them separately previously it was easy to pick up but someone that hasn't would find it troublesome. There is no TOC which limit navigation. Otherwise, a great read I can recommend.
