When you buy the first book in a series and then the second and read both of them within 5 days and then look impatiently for the third, then you know it's a good read!

They say these are like Patrick O'Brien's books . . . I don't know, I have 3 of those staring down at me as I type this and I haven't got past page 100 in the first book, I find them so hard going . . .

Anyway back to the book, plots and sub-plots are interwoven, we learn more about Max and his flaws and a bit more about Bram the doc, but not a lot more. We also learn a bit more about the other main characters and are introduced to some more and their characters.

It's good for once that the "alien" cultures often have superior technology and Honsinger has done well in weaving them into the story, ensuring that a one size doesn't fit all and they retain their distinctive cultures as do other human factions.

As usual I'm not trying to spoil the story - read and devour, digest at leisure - 500 pages for £1 - what a bargain promo Amazon! - even £3 wouldn't be too much.

The only think I would suggest is that a story this long could be split into 2 parts and the ending . . . for a while I thought it should be at the start of book , but I'm still confused about the best presentation . . . perhaps a part 3 and some extra filler to link it to part 2?

Anyway can we have the next book please and can you get started with the new series?

This is Book 2 of the Man of War, an enjoyable military space opera romp that takes place during the 24th century and leads like a parody of the genre.

It includes very much the same ingredients as the first volume, with the two main characters and their behaviours, Lieutenant Commander Max Robichaux and Dr Sahin, being very largely inspired by Patrick O'Brian's duo (Captain Aubrey/Doctor Maturin).
Again, this volume contains a rather high number of clichés or caricatures but there is also a large dose of "politically correctness".

You get the cowardly, bureaucratic and incompetent superior who tries to (but of course does not succeed in) bully our Robichaux-action man and hero who will, of course, save his life, his ship and his whole crew for him. You also get a piece on "friendly Muslims" (beginning with Dr Sahin - the hero's best friend) from an association of planets similar to the United Emirates with one of their leading houses being called the House of Saoud. They will, of course, need help from our hero will, of course, provide very successfully.

Again, the book is action-packed, with the whole story taking place during a month and a half this time (slightly longer than in the first book). During this short period, Max Robichaux and his friend, ship and crew seem to spend their time racing around the galaxy, blowing to bits enemy ships bigger than theirs and winning against impossible odds.

There are a number of additional features in this episode.

You get to learn more of the Vaagh, huge and hugely advanced four meter high fierce predators that look like koala bears.

I so enjoyed the jack Aubrey novels that this sci fi version is fascinating. While the introduction of nuclear weapons is a little concerning - how does anyone live long enough to develop their "naval" society and culture? The balance of battle versus organisation of the ship and crew is excellent. Always a great pace. Wish there were more novels in the series

Book 2 in the series and I can't wait for the next one. This is a great follow on and perfectly complements the first book. The plot thickens, the bad guys are extra bad and there is intrigue and nail biting decisions to be made by everyone. A fantastic space opera, lots of exploding ships, heroic deeds, incompetent leaders and swash buckling adventure.
That sounds a bit shallow but in reality the book draws on real history, naval battles and manoeuvres from both world wars etc. So is really captivating. Read it.... It's good

This book is amazing the characters well developed from the first book, it is everything you could want from a military science fiction novel. Great adversaries in the form of giant intelligent rat like creatures amazing battle scenarios and houdini like escapes performed by the hero captain and his ship the Cumberland.
5 stars because it is fantastic.

Another great book in the series with humour and more "believable " content as before, love the references to events that took place now and also the names and little "cameos" from sci if series on TV.
Where's the third one?

Thoroughly enjoyed both books (1 and 2) and can't wait for the next one later this year! Very well and intelligently written with imaginitive thinking behind it, particularly with respect to real or imaginary technology. Keep up the good work!

The only problem in the book is that it has to end, can't wait for the next.

Thanks for the stories Paul, don't like facebook so can't comment there but hopefuly you will read this, take a look at Admiral Cohrane - the greatest sailor ever, grand admiral of three countries, defeated more French ships, and possibly more adversary ships than any sailor in history - made Nelson look like he was slacking and tied down more enemy (French) soldiers than any other other force of its size. A superb tactician and startegists and litle is written or generally known about him. And you thought John Paul Jones could fight!!!!
