I am a big fan of sea stories of the Napoleonic era. I read Meacham’s first book “The East Indiaman” and thoroughly enjoyed it. I could hardly wait to start book two of the trilogy.
Percival Merewether has been appointed Commodore of the Bengal Squadron. The squadron captures four French ships and the fun begins with trips to the Mauritius and also Persia and lots of non-stop action.
The book is well written and researched. The characters continue to develop and the plot twists and turns. There is lots of action both at sea and on the land. Meacham writes in a way that I can smell the sea, hear the creaking of the rigging and feel the movement of the sea. If you enjoy stories of this era, you will definitely enjoy this book.
The book Is just over fourteen hours long. Steven Crossley does a great job narrating the book. Crossley is an actor and multi-award-winning audiobook narrator.
