Another adventure worth reading in the series. If you want a human hero with as many failings as his superior ability and intellect then Alan Lewrie is the character I'd recommend. This book begins to unleash a superstitious element to the tales but, like all the other oddities and particulars Lambdin bravely trots out for our historical education as well as reading pleasure, I find it refreshing and out of the ordinary. This is entertainment that is worth my time and I find enjoyable. I highly recommend the entire series and hope Mr. Lambdin continues the story for a long time to come.

I must have been an age of sail sailor, as these books and the Aubrey/Maturin and Hornblower seem to hold me spellbound.

Patrick O'Brian's books are more beautifully described, but Lambdin offers much in the way of Captain Lewrie's thoughts; so different from Jack Aubrey's.

If you enjoy age of sail, ships, man, and war at sea the entire Lewrie series might hold your interest. I found it to be a great cruise and was sad to see it end. There is always another read thru during the winter months possibly.

I have read all in the series up to this book. The story line is becoming repetitive and predictable. Also in this book the conversations with Pheobe are becoming very tedious and it is difficult to remained focused while reading these conversations. I find myself skipping over these conversations. It got to the point that I quit reading this book and went to a different author. I am finding that the only good ebooks are the ones that are as expensive as buying a new paperback.

As a fan of all the naval history series out there, the Lewrie novels are consistently entertaining. If you like the genre and are working trough all the series Lambdin's books are not on the level of Aubrey, Hornblower or Bolitho but are a close second tier -- closer to the Ramage series. If you need high off color behavior with your high adventures, you'll really like these books.

Well...close to awesome. After reading the Patrick O'Brian series, twice, there was nowhere to go. So, I started this series. Dewey is pretty good. If you don't expect O'Brian, these books are great. Ts just a different style. They are fun, interesting to read. I especially liked the series of paragraphs describing the main character's wife. Not sure that's in this book.

Read them. You will not be sorry.

Loving this series. Got hooked on Patrick Obrien/Capt. Aubrey and Dr Maturin, the Kydd series And now Dewey Lambdin and Capt. Alan Lewrie. Enjoyed them all. Would recommend any and all of them to those who love historical fiction at the time of the Napoleonic Wars and the sea battles and intrigues that were afoot at that time. Five stars, though some were
a tad better stories than others. Nonetheless, I would read them all again if I had time. Kept me entertained for years and years. Five star reading for the admirer of such literature. Have recommended all to many friends as they came to my attention.

The Alan Lewrie Naval Adventures, are,perhaps one of the best series in this genre ever created. The author manages to prserve the flavor of the period without resorting to the wordy pomposity of an O'Brien. Lewrie is an engaging rogue. Fully as good as Kent's "Bolitho" series--which I also reccomend. THis Novel sees Our Hero in his first real independent command, the Sloop Of War HMS "Jester" and off to Corsica. A first class read
One wonders how the British Royal Navy ever dominated the seas as the organization puts every barrier in place to those who wish to advance. Make no mistake, you have to be committed to the Lewrie series. One almost learns a new language of nautical terms. The adventure makes it worth it. Hope someone makes a movie of this series..
