    Kydd advances his career

    In this second book, Kydd has advanced through hard work, and the help of some helpful and understanding messmates to be rated a Petty Officer. He also now has had a love interest, though his drive to make a career in the RN superseded what his female companion, wanted and needed. That sounds a little crass and roguish, but, considering she all but seduced him, her later reaction seemed greedy.

    In all, a good read, that was hard to put down.

    Many of my comments from the first book in this series applies to the second book as well.

    I did feel a little disjointed in the change in locale. For instance, the reader might be reading about one character and their POV, then in the next paragraph, the scene and the character changes. At least in the eBook edition, there was no demarcation of any sort of scene change. A line, or some other mark to denote a change would've been nice.

    I've read Patrick O'Brian novels and of course C.S. Forrester, and liked their more flowing style. From reading the Author Notes on this and the next book, I understand his intention to skip over the duller parts of blockade duty, or endless sailing on wide open seas. In my somewhat limited way, I feel this was carried to extremes, to the point that I wonder how the ship, or character could have gotten from one place to another. Granted, not all transitions need to be written. Not being a writer, I have no suggestions to improve. It just felt disjointed, and I needed to go back and reread to see if I had missed something.
