1782 First officer on brig o'war . . . 
Fresh from duty on the frigate Desperate in her fight with the French Capricieuse off St. Kitts, Midshipman Alan Lewrie passes his examination board for Lieutenancy and finds himself commissioned first officer of the brig o'war Shrike. There's time for some dalliance with the fair sex, and then Lieutenant Lewrie must be off to patrol the North American coast and attempt to bring the Muskogees and Seminoles onto the British side against the American rebels (dalliance with an Indian maiden is just part of the mission). Then it's back to the Caribbean, to sail beside Captain Horatio Nelson in the Battle for Turks Island. . . .
Naval officer and rogue, Alan Lewrie is a man of his times and a hero for all times. His equals are Hornblower, Aubrey, and Maturin--sailors beloved by readers all over the world. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I read the entire series largely back-to-back (my local public library is well-stocked). One of the great things about this series is that we get to watch Alan Lewrie, the main character, grow up from a callow, self-indulgent teenager to a mature, thoughtful, and responsible adult. "

    " Allen remains bawdy, funny, ingenious, and lucky. And the scene at the end with the cat and the new captain made me laugh so hard! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mike (the Paladin) | 9/1/2011

    " Lots of battles, lots of gore...lots of sex. Alan hasn't changed a lot in some ways but in others he's learning. For on thing the navy may not have been such a big mistake afterall. "

    " I very much enjoyed this book, I look forward to following Alan Lewerie on his further adventures, I would recommend this series to anyone who likes the Bernard Cornwell "Sharpe series" or other Naval adventures such as Hornblower, "
