This totally throws the reader out of the story. Elsewhere, there are highlights, including Allday's adventure as a would-be smuggler and a climatic battle about two thirds of the way through the book that serves as a natural ending - although we have extra stuff going on after that. I enjoyed the book as a light read, but it hasn't grabbed me in the way a Gemmell or Cornwell might. I'd read another in the series, although I'm not in a great hurry to do so. I don't want to be too hard on Kent. I was disappointed with this book because he was recommended to me as similar to Patrick O'Brian, and he's not of the same stature.
I enjoyed the naval battle towards the endbut the plot development - and I can often be content with a good action writer - seemed awkward and shallow, and the characters likewise.

I just like these stories! Sep 06, Diane rated it it was ok. Too much emphasis on just how the ships worked, and not enough on the story line. I'm sure those who are more familiar with sailing ships would like it better. Nov 26, Charlie Shaw added it Shelves: Not as good as usual with this author.
