Winter, 1793—the Reign of Terror rips through revolutionary France. In Plymouth, England, Master and Commander Charles Hayden is given orders to return to the ill-fated HMS Themis as the British fight the French for control of thestrategically located island of Corsica. But within hours out of port, Hayden’s uncanny knack for attracting the attention of the French navy sees the Themis thrown back into action. When she lands in Corsica, and her men join forces with native insurgents, Hayden finds himself at the vanguard of a brutal clash of empires.

Solid but not as good as the first book
This was a solid Napoleonic adventure story, but it lacked much of the strength and gusto of the first book Under Enemy Colors, which had more powerful characterization and better overall cohesion. But, I like Charles Hayden. I'll follow him here and through to the next books when they come.

Fantastic Napoleanic Era novel
Having finished all of the Horatio Hornblower novels (by C.S. Forester), I stumbled on S. Thomsa Russell's books on Charles Hayden. I liked the story and the characters in this book. It's well written and impossible to put down. I will be awaiting his next novel.
