This is not the best book in the series but it is still quite good. The adventures of Captain Somerville continues in this direct continuation from A King’s Ship. Unfortunately the story gets a bit too much into the muddled waters of rubbish politics and constipated politicians as well as military officers.

I particularly disliked that asswipe Maximillian. Not only is he a frustrating, scheming and obnoxious politician but he is also a full bore idiot. I really dislike these type of characters. At least the dumbass showed some honor later in the book. Too late of course but I guess one has to be happy for the small favors.

The arranged wedding crap also rears it’s ugly head again. Even if it was indeed advantageous for our hero I simply cannot stand that crap.

While I am in whining mode let’s say some words about the events towards the end. Luckily it is some time since I’ve read this book (and I have read #4 and #5 as well by the time I’m writing this) so I have calmed down a bit so let’s just say that I thoroughly disliked that farce. Dumbass, politically motivated, asswipes putting the hero of the day on trial? The less said about that the better.

On the plus side our hero is as good as ever. That is one part of the book that I really like. A no-nonsense all out hero. Competent and never any doubt that he is on the good side. Actually a lot of characters in the book is very enjoyable and even the asswipes are at least well written.

That really goes for the book as a whole. It is well written. Story, universe, action, military strategy and tactics and so on and so forth are all on the higher end of the scale. Apart from the points mentioned above, and maybe a bit too much sneaking around on the ground but that’s really personal taste, it is really a book in my style. ( )

Disappointing

Author is a good storyteller and has a good command of English. I made it through the first two books with some reservations, but this one repeats the jingoistic and racist themes. On top of that, the lead character's personality becomes even more disappointingly weak. I gave up about a third of the way through the book. ( )
