The Hero Continues to Progress

Kidd gets his own ship. Granted, not very big, but still quite a step. This was well done again, and very entertaining.

Ok

The book was alright. Christian Rodska does a great job narrating and keeping his characters in order and getting through nautical sea speak that might be otherwise challenging to read. I have read the previous novels and am still struggling to get through this series. I may skip a book or two and see if the character development improves. Will advise!

Joyous!

Having followed Kydd this far I would defy anyone who has identified this character not to enjoy him getting his first real command. Stockwin makes the most of this "unexpected" turn of events and once again shows his excellent knowledge as he describes Kydd's struggles to get his ship and crew ready for sea. All delivered with Rodska's thoroughly authentic feel and this is genuinely a fine continuation of the series.

If you enjoyed the previous books then getting this is an easy recommendation.
