Master and Commander Charles Hayden returns in the sequel to the international best-seller Under Enemy Colors. 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 the strategically 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. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Elsborg | 2/7/2014

    " Well I loved his first and I love the second. Mr. Russell has drawn a great cast of characters and I love the twist with Hayden's love. Won't say more in case I spoil it! I'm really not a reader of this sort of story - I've never read Patrick O'Brian et al - but Mr.Russell's books are so easily read I find myself drawn into life on board a ship and can almost feel the room rock! I love the way he meshes fact and fiction. I'm not a history buff so I have no idea what's true and what's not but it all feels authentic to me. Great pace, interesting story and very well written. When's the next out? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Wallace | 2/6/2014

    " I actually listened to the unabridged audio book by Nick Boulton, which I have to say was done superbly. I have nothing but praise for the story itself. Bravo STR. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 1/15/2014

    " Even slightly better than the first in the series. Kind of a weird, sorta-semi-cliffhanger ending, but other than that, recommended for those who like the genre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lluis Pujals | 12/23/2013

    " it's the continuation of "under enemy colours". the same man with the same crew have new adventures in the mediterranian see, in the conquest of Cerdenya "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gordon Macdonald | 11/22/2013

    " not quite as good as the first one (Under Enemy Colors) .. but still quite entertaining "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 10/10/2013

    " Tim read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shaun Major | 6/16/2013

    " A human & accessible Jack Aubrey in wide-ranging adventures that belie the number of pages in the book. Can't wait for the next one!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Harding | 7/5/2012

    " This series just gets better and better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Hull | 4/19/2012

    " Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant .... I just hope our next 'installment' of 'Captain' - master and commander - Charles Hayden's Naval exploits aboard HMS Themis aren't too long in the making! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil | 3/26/2012

    " Really enjoyed this one too "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maturin27 | 3/1/2012

    " Second book in the series and just as enjoyable as the first. If you enjoy Pope,Kent and O'Brian then you will like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce | 1/4/2012

    " Read this one of Russell's books first and enjoyed it. Need to go back and read the first one. This one ended in a bit of a cliffhanger--looking forward to the next one. Similar period and style to Bernard Cornwell and his Richard Sharpe books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 9/13/2011

    " When you run out of Forester and O'Brien, read these. The only concern I have is that Mr. Hayden will never get promoted. Troubles and hurdles, I can understand, but if the hero never makes any progress, I will get frustrated and probably quit reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hisham1969 | 6/20/2011

    " I really enjoyed it, can't wait for the next one. Unfortunately I noticed that there was a 3-year gap between the first 2 books in this series, at this rate this means that book 3 will not be out until 2013. "
