Excellent book

A real rollocking yarn with a great ending. This is the best Aubrey so far.

Lesser of Two Weevils

Another terrific adventure read expertly by Jerrom. Too much time on land for this to be my favourite but there are some tremendously exciting sequences as lucky Jack and slightly less lucky Stephen defy death a few more times.
