This is the first of the Bolitho series I have read Yes, I know it is 24 in the series, but it is the one I found at a local thrift store Anyway, setting aside the difficulty of picking up in the middle of the saga, I found the book very entertaining and well written, a worthy complement to the Hornblower and Aubrey Maturin series written upon the same theme. Well, this is my 3rd Alexander Kent book Therefore, I don t really know how the series is flowing, but I got fed up with the romance element of this book Monotonous Why is he trying this hard to make it a love story Quite good, but I preferred the earlier midshipman captain adventures.
