no way... last one!

It's taken me a while to get to writing up some reviews, my bad.

I was excited for this, because I knew it was the last in this series. But also a little worried about the length of it. Most of the other books were a lot shorter.

However, I didn't think at all that it was overly long at all. Each day I listened (about 4 hours a day) there was enough entertainment and interest for me to keep on wanting more and more.

The death of anyone can upset the apple cart, but to lose the main man who he reports to is tough, and the echo from that, and the proposal that comes his way is very intriguing. There are so many hidden depths to the story and you're guessing what is going on, and making wrong calls, because we don't expect things. Ishmael takes on a new ship and crew and amazingly enough seems to do okay.

And this audiobook took us through, okay, anger, heartache, love, heartbreak, and had me totally on the edge of my driving seat. I admit, there were a couple of things I saw coming, but they also had me crying. With one deft twist there too. So be prepared to be emotionally involved a lot with this book, it's gripping to the point you won't want to stop listening. (and in fact after getting home one day from work, I couldn't I had to get to the end) Kudos to Nick for that.

There's a couple of things that grated on me a little more than it did in the other stories, some repetitive word choices that I really think he needs to watch out for in his other works, as well. haha.

but other than those, I was extremely glad to have been on this journey with Ishmael, handled expertly well by the great voice of Jeffery Kafer. Is there going to be more? I hope so, because it's interesting to actually see and witness, the cooking and cleaning and the basic rituals of life on board a ship. Yes it seems to be just that, and stocking and supplying everything on a ship you'd think to be totally boring, some might, but it doesn't come across like that in the novel. It seems just right, and seems to work. :)

I am going to take a look around and see if there's anything else by this fab team. I'm going to miss Ishmael and his life.

Thank you very much for the journey. It's been a pleasure.

So Very Sad

This has to be one of the saddest stories I have listened to. I certainly did not see it coming from one direction, ‘gramps’. However, I did see it coming from the other officer involved, which made me wonder how someone who is supposed to be a captain has very little insight into their crew.

That said and, without giving too much away, I certainly did not see the figure behind the conspiracy. Plots within plots. ensure this is a book not to miss.
