Less action than most Aubrey-Maturin books, but interesting descriptions of Australia and some political intrigue.

I read this book out of order in the series, and I have to say, don't do that. This book series really needs to be read in order as where one book ends, the next one starts.

Overall, this book is lightness and optimism. Bad things happen, but then good things happen in spades. I liked it. Our hero's have a rough start, a good middle, a rough time in Botany bay, but then do the right thing, with a great ending.



Triggers: Violence - it's a war book, so there is a lot of death and violence. Lots of observations about the prisons in Botany bay, and the punishments, like flogging and such. Some sex, but it's off camera.
