A worthy read but not a series highlight

The Kydd series is a very worthy addition to any fan of nautical or historical military fiction. This book contains a lot of the characteristics of the overall series including the well researched descriptions of 19th centurt life but for me at least doesn't quite hit the heights of some of the others. Kydd behaves just too much like a love-sick teenager and the action is more limited. Christian Rodska does his normal fine job and I love him as a narrator but romance probably isn't exactly his sweet spot.

It's still worth reading and subsequent books return to form but it didn't quite reach the same heights for my tastes as most of the other books.

More Sense & Sensibility than a swashbuckling yarn

Stockwin veers off course in this'un to a slightly dragging tale dominated by society and courtship at the detriment of naval adventure.
