    It is 1780, and 17-year-old Alan Lewrie is a brash, rebellious young libertine. So much so that his callous father believes a bit of naval discipline will turn the boy around. Fresh aboard the tall-masted Ariadne, Midshipman Lewrie heads for the war-torn Americas, finding - rather unexpectedly - that he is a born sailor, equally at home with the randy pleasures of the port and the raging battles on the high seas. But in a hail of cannonballs comes a bawdy surprise.

    Overall

    Lambdin's Alan Lewrie novels have addicted me to the historic Royal Navy. Sea battles, encounters with historical figures such as Nelson and Hood, Napoleonic Wars, American Revolution, from Land's End to America's Eastern Seaboard, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean - this series is steeped in living history that you can't help but learn from. One can only take so much blood and thunder at one go though, and Lambdin does a great job of altering the pace by inserting Lewrie's on-shore adventures in a rather humorous, or at least lighthearted, way, complete with outraged fathers, husbands, and spurned shrews. He's not the perfect hero, but his heroics are perfect. I REALLY hope Audible adds more Lewrie novels beyond they 10 they already have. A great series, but not for the faint of heart!
