I really enjoy the fictional Olde British Naval stories that keep me focused on the stories lines without bogging me down in the nitty-gritty of the aspects of sailing ships of the day. This book has a great story line and will keep your attention from start to finish. I hope that the
author(s) will keep the plot line going.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Historical Fiction, this is a book to read. 2 Mar 2013

The author does a nice job with this novel, keeping it interesting and fast paced while not losing the feeling of the period the story is set in. For those who long to ride the seas on the HMS Kestrel, climb aboard and get ready to be drawn this tale of diplomacy, intrigue, and espionage, with a few twists and surprises along the way.
3.0 out of 5 stars Naval Action and Romance 18 Oct 2013

Petroc Gray follows the tradition of Hornblower Aubrey and Ramage in that he is a competent, dashing, and resourceful warship captain. The naval action is exciting and good reading; his life parallels Jack Aubrey' s in that his family has an estate and a bit of nobility. He does get wrapped up in intrigue as much as battle action. Nonetheless, a good sea story.

A significant part of the story concerns his romance with Miss Silke, the daughter of a wealthy, influential, German merchant. Mr. Cox needs to take a few lessons from Nora Roberts on love stories. In four years, Captain Dudley Do-Right doesn't lay a hand on his intended, and he professes to miss her conversation and little else! Now come on. Even 19th century ship captains are human. If one makes the love interest such a large part of the plot, at least add in a little heat!
