L. A. Meyer does it again with this excellent adventure series. Katherine Kellgren is wonderful in her reading of it. She brings each character to life. This is one book that keeps everyone on the edge of their seat waiting to see what is going to happen next.
what an exciting, thrilling, captivating series with a great narrator makes you feel like your right there. would give 10 stars!
Two of the things I love most dearly are Patrick O'Brian's Jack Aubry having read the cannon 3+ times and my 15 year old granddaughter. I must admit I incountered great difficulty in equating the seamanship, battle readiness and leadership abilities of Captain Aubry and my beloved 15 year old. I did recognise much of the ship talk and battle scenery, however. I guess all turn of the 19th century sea novels must borrow from each other as there are only a limited number of ways to describe climbing the rigging, a sea fight and the number of worms in hardtack.
