Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item
Now in paperback, the second installment of Julian Stockwin's internationally bestselling naval adventure series captures the triumph, tragedy, and gritty reality of life at sea on a Napoleonic-era frigate. Reminiscent of such great storytellers as C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian, author Julian Stockwin brings the passion and authenticity of a professional seaman to this compulsively readable new series of historical novels. Young Thomas Kydd, kidnapped and forced to sea in Kydd, the first book in the series, now joins his friend, Nicholas Renzi, to ship out on the crack frigate Artemis. Surviving a fierce battle against the French, Artemis soon heads on a perilous journey to India, China, the South Seas and around the world. Fever, tempest, and even mutiny will test Kydd's resolve, but he ultimately experiences first love and finds strength and purpose in the unique fellowship of the sea. Julian Stockwin, with his love for the sea and his vast experience, is the perfect author for this dynamic and exhilarating series.
