I was very disappointed by this sequel. The emphasis has changed from a sea/spy story to a sex/romance political piece. The focus of the story has changed to the viewpoint of Anna Wetterstrand and Lt Johan Kuhlin is relegated to a minor role in this story. The pace has slowed to an absolute crawl as the main topic is the political instability of Sweden during the 1808/9 war.
The frigate in question is a british frigate trapped in ice of the 1808 winter. The crew are trapped as much by intrigue over the king as they are by the ice. Readers may also feel trapped as the narrative itself slowsto a crawl.
As a series this cant decide what its supposed to be. It seems this is intended to be a period piece of romance ,female empowerment, espionage and a mildly nautical theme. I was wholly unconvinced by the shift to Annas viewpoint and think this would have been better related from a male viewpoint. The author struggled to engage us from a female view and should have related Annas activities from a third person perspective. The shift to Annas leaves the too frequent sexual content as torpid, cold and entirely unconvincing and unappetising. Anna is no longer an intriguing curiosity but a tarnished and tedious bawd.
The finale is such a massive anticlimax I actually had to go back twice to check if pages were mising. I couldnt believe it. I struggled to finish reading this only to find there isnt really a proper ending.
Very disappointed, all the flaws of the first book exist magnified here with much less of the novelty and action of the first. The kindle version also has the same formatting issues of the first book repeated here , though this is a minor inconvenience. i wanted to like this but found it too much of a change from the first book in terms of pace and perspective. I wont be following any further adventures of Anna Wetterstrand.
