Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This third segment takes Jack Aubrey to the Indian subcontinent, where both the waters and the terrain are full of unfamiliar dangers. There is, however, a prize in the offing: a flotilla of French ships sent to attack the China Fleet. If Aubrey and Maturin can intercept the French, their fortunes will be made. But can they? Join Captain Aubrey on the quarterdeck and find out for yourself.

Review

"I haven’t read novels [in the past ten years] except for all of the Patrick O’Brian series. It was, unfortunately, like tripping on heroin. I started on those books and couldn’t stop."
E. O. Wilson, Boston Globe

"Patrick O’Brian is unquestionably the Homer of the Napoleonic wars."
James Hamilton-Paterson, New Republic

"A first-rate tale of the sea…I read it with absorption and satisfaction."
Robertson Davies
