I liked the young captain in the book and found myself rooting for him during the story and the predicament that he was thrown into which of course he would have no idea about the plotting going on. I look forward to reading another book by this author.

Some sword play and naval fighting to keep a readers interest by the way.

This is a bit like Patrick O'Brien lite. It's clearly inspired by O'Brien (although there is no mention of him anywhere in the blurbs, which is a little odd, I think.) The hero is quite likable, the writing is good. It just doesn't seem to have the depth and texture of O'Brien. Still--very readable and fun. And it's only the first of a series and maybe he's just getting warmed up. If you like O'Brien this is surely worth your time and I have already ordered the second one.
