This author needs to go back to school "mussel" for example meaning the muzzle of a gun

Its a good story spoiled by clumsy writing and references. As an example HMS Bellerophon was a 74 gun 3rd rate ship of the line , not a frigate: and a French frigate of 38 guns does not have two decks. There is little detail in the writing which is more narrative than anything else which as I said is a shame because the storyline is potentially good, just that the writing is not!

Its not a good kindle copy either with large gaps and miss-linings, these are annoying.

Lost to the Sea book 1. Not a bad start. Bit neutral, perhaps a little
weak and the story feels a little rushed. Could it be aimed at children?
I fear the story might be disintegrating at 22%. Becoming a romantic
novel? Passage of the hero has been far too smooth and without any
challenge thus far. Action at last but sadly Story leap frogs vast sections
of enormous potential in the plot, sometimes referring to them as an
afterthought. The hero continues to 'walk on water' and seems to lack
common human traits. Perhaps this is a novel aimed at youngsters. All the heroes hopes and aims are realised, both for the reader and hero. Very little in the way of anti climax and on the rare occasion when it did happen it 'turned out for the best'.
Readable but not if an exiting story is what is being looked for.

Only an author who knows the sea in all it's many moods could have written as compelling a novel as 'Lost to the Sea' The fishermen who set sail from places like Cullercoats to earn their livings did so well aware of the perils they faced.
Jamie Johnson was his families sole survivor of a sea disaster,but the sea is in his blood and he goes on to encounter more seagoing adventures.
E Van Johnson's seagoing tale kept me well hooked.

A very enjoyable read which gave me the feel of the sea without too much seafaring technicalities. The characters are interesting and I enjoyed getting to know them as the tale enfolded. Looking forward to Book 2 and furthering the adventure.

A splendid story and well written. In fact I could not put it down as the action is non stop. Such a pity the book is so badly formatted and no one bothered to proof read! However, well worth the purchase and I can't wait for the sequel.

A good yarn, but spoilt for me by far too many grammatical and spelling errors. It is a shame that this book was not properly proof read before publication. Spell checking is not enough, because it does not allow for context.
