Perhaps, my expectations were a bit high?
But I definitely enjoyed the book,and confirm my point I will read the next one.

This second book in the series was, I felt, FAR more in line with the Aubrey-Maturin (sp) source material, with a lot more starship combat AND shore-time intrigue. It would be a rousing read, I have no doubt. However, once again Victor Bevine's voice lends itself more to the calm cadences of bedtime tales than to the derring-do of Leary, Mundy, and their compatriots. He's good, and it's not enough to stop me from downloading the next book as soon as I finished this one, but I would like to have had more energy, more gusto, out of at least the tense, action-packed moments with which the novel abounds.
