      I will be assuming that you have read the prior books in this series therefore there will be at least minor spoilers for those earlier books.Here we go again, at sea with Alan Lewrie more ways than one. I've mentioned before that I like this series except for any time Alan leaves his ship. Then the novels slow downabominably. This can be especially true of accounts of Alan's love life. Well, in earlier volumes Alan's amorous adventures have finally turned and bitten him on the.well, they turned [...]

      Not full of exciting Naval actions, but so significant in context of the greater story line, so as not to be missed. Full of interesting, and dangerous characters both New and Old. Lewrie, at his best and worst and most vulnerable.

      It’s unusual, these days, for me to listen to a novel on CD rather than to read one on my commuter train. However, I prepared to drive on a lengthy trip by visiting my local library and checking out their Books on CD collection. I was delighted to find a fighting sail novel by Dewey Lambdin that I hadn’t read, Havoc’s Sword and even more delighted as I began to listen to the fabulous performance by John Lee. Lee is truly a one-man show with spot-on local accents and enough vocal variety th [...]

      In this, the 11th of Dewey Lambdin's Alan Lewrie series of naval adventures, Lewrie remains captain of the British frigate, HMS Proteus, serving in the Caribbean. The year is 1798. In this book, Lewrie is once again confronted with his nemesis, Guillaume Choundas, a French naval officer with whom Lewrie has battled twice before - each has a personal grudge against the other. Lewrie also comes into contact with an American naval captain, who is related to an American that Lewrie knew years ago wh [...]

      Lots of new story threads there's plenty of intrigue but I felt the ending was weak. If French commander Choundas is supposed to have such a fierce reputation, why was he suckered into an battle that he could not have won? Why was he so over-confident? And why was he suckered into believing his innocent clerk as a spy? Because as a spy, when the information is too neat, too convincing, and too good to be true, he would have realized something is off. Overall, it was a very good book because the [...]

      I read the entire series largely back-to-back (my local public library is well-stocked). One of the great things about this series is that we get to watch Alan Lewrie, the main character, grow up from a callow, self-indulgent teenager to a mature, thoughtful, and responsible adult.

    7. Diane on said:

      Felt like I needed more education about ships and the history of the period before I could begin to follow this book--especially listening to it while driving.

    8. Renee on said:

      Like Pirates of the Caribbean, but with English Navy vs. the French Navy, with the Americans pitching in against the French.

    9. Don Casto on said:

      Still a great story . . .but this one went too far with the dialog in French again.

    10. David on said:

      Been working my way through this series and have been enjoying it, obviously. This one wasn't a good as some of the others in the series
