Unfortunately the first book in the Series "Kydd" is not available yet on Audible but don't that put you off. Some might not enjoy the somewhat dense nautical/naval terminology and the amount of characters to get to grips with in the early chapters there's also plenty of action to move the excellent story along. The naration is excellent (he even sings out some of the sea shanties in the third book) and this turned out to be the perfect listen to get my sailing fix having enjoyed Sean Thomas Russell's Hayden books immensely.

A Sparkiling Tale

Continuing the adventures of Kydd and Renzi Artemis propels the unlikely duo on further adventures in love and war. The chemistry between the two develops further and more of their characters emerge as they adapt to rapidly changing circumstances. Christian Rodska is in his usual fine fettle and Stockwin's undoubted expertise about the period shines throughout.

Having read the other reviews I think I need say no more except that the first of the series "Kydd" is now available and it's worth reading these in order if you can.
