I dislike the Idea that you have Read the First Chapter from the Previous Book, so it seems as if you have missed a Chapter and at the end you Get an Introduction to the Next Book.
The Recommendation Goes out to All who like the days of Sailing Ships and How hard Life was then and you get taken into the Ship as Part of the Crew.
Good Read and the Ability to understand the Technical parts of the different Boats
Having read the rest of the series and read the rest of the reviews i can tell others that Julian did learn and progress the characters even further, and when that was coupled with his obvious passion for the sea and all things nautical, you end up with a series that does rank up there with Forrester and O'Brian, every year i look forward to my new instalment of Kydd...but to get there you have to start at the beginning.
Julian Stockwin is a master writer of the period not only of the conditions in the Royal Navy of the late 1700's, early 1800's but of the political situation of the times around the world. Also his descriptions of various ports in this country and around the world are spot on and to someone like me who travelled the world in the Royal Navy in the 50's & 60's a lot of the places were still recognisable.
The books are based on the fictional character Thomas Kydd who was pressed into the Royal Navy in 1793 and his rise through the ranks. The only way I can describe the series is that it is written as a fictional autobiography of Thomas Kydd set in historical facts of wars and intrigues of the period.
I conclude by quoting the book reviewer from the Independent Newspaper, "I was soon turning over the pages indecently fast." I second this as I am having to force myself to go to bed around 4am being on book six in five weeks.

Excellent reading, would recommend to anyone, so well researched and described. One feels as though they are involved in the action.Published 9 months ago by Roy Rogers
Bit of light reading - Good story line - Not sure whether the use of the language that sailors of that time would have used adds any value or just serves to put the reader off -... Read morePublished 11 months ago by PM
