Richard Delancey, inadvertently embroiled in Liverpool labor riots, sidesteps punishment by "volunteering" for the Navy. Ranked as a midshipman, he is no sooner aboard than his ship sails for the port of New York. But when the events of the American Revolution and the ongoing hostilities between England and France send him back across the sea, Delancey finds himself instrumental in defending the Isle of Jersey and, later, the Rock of Gibraltar.

more of a documentary than story nature
February 2nd, 2015
A well told tale but a lot of the story was told in the narrative rahter than a more active way such as by use of more dialoque and more description and detail in the story. I bought the book knowing it is the first in a series with the goal of determining whether or not to purchase the rst of the series. It is OK but the writer could take lessons from Dewey Lamdon and Michael Aye. May buy the rest of the series if I run our of other good books on my upcoming 2 month vacation.

Decent read

I don't think Delancey stands out from the rest of the Age of Sail characters I have previously met but there are some very interesting nuggets if information that I haven't run into in other similar novels. Will try another of the books to see if the character develops further
