Napoleon, escaped from Elba, pursues his enemies across Europe like a vengeful phoenix. If he can corner the British and Prussians before their Russian and Austrian allies arrive, his genius will lead the French armies to triumph at Waterloo. In the Balkans, preparing a thrust northwards into Central Europe to block the Russians and Austrians, a horde of Muslim mercenaries is gathering. They are inclined toward Napoleon because of his conversion to Islam during the Egyptian campaign, but they will not move without a shipment of gold ingots from Sheik Ibn Hazm which, according to British intelligence, is on its way via camel caravan to the coast of North Africa. It is this gold that Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin must at all costs intercept. The fate of Europe hinges on their desperate mission.
  • If you like historical novels, this series is almost impossible to beat. O'Brien is meticulous in his research about the Napoleanic Wars, and shipboard life in the British Navy during that period around the turn of the 19th. Century. Plus his descriptions of naval battles and ship maneuvers are rich in detail and description. All are based upon records of actual battles as described in Captains' Logs and crew memorirs at the U.K. National Naval Archives. His character development is incomparable, and their respective personal interests in music, natural history, science (astral navigation for one) add a depth to the texture of the series that prevent them from becoming monotonous. I have the entire series, and I enjoy rereading them every three years or so. That's unusual. I hardly ever reread fictional works. It's impossible for me to rate his work with less than 5 Stars, both as a series and each book ax a standalone read. A personal all time favorite!

  • Every Patrick O'Brien novel - especially all of the Aubrey Maturin series - should be required reading for anyone who loves a great story with compelling characters, adventure, suspense and just the slightest touch of romance. Add to that that they are steeped in actual history - based on the logbooks of the RN captains who sailed in the era about which he writes - these are history lessons in the most entertaining form imaginable. Highest recommendation i could possibly give.

  • Spoiler alert....don't read my review if you haven't already read the book!
    Having said that, this book was the "least necessary" of the series so far. I have not yet read 20 or 21. There are some really interesting opportunities for character development and action...all glossed over. The losses of Diana and Bonden are almost ignored. Some reviewers chalk this up to O'Brian's stoic way of handling death...maybe true...but as a reader it seemed incomplete. Nature, Diana, Ireland and Medicine drive Steven (in that order, I think). Suddenly Diana is gone with about a paragraph devoted to her. So many opportunities for his reflections and sense of loss. It's certainly there...if you dig...but just barely. Same with Bonden. In a flash he's gone...with one sentence devoted to him later on.

    As for the plot...opportunities wasted. The struggle to bring the Surprise home after the storm and collision? Perhaps some better descriptions of the ship yard burnings? How 'bout some detail on the deal Steven cut to initiate the shipyard burnings. Instead we get a trip the see the Dey...which is meaningless since they seem to be killed every two weeks. I love the series...but this seemed a bit like filler. It's not difficult reading...but in the end you ask yourself "why was I here?".

  • A great, great author and a classic 1800's British Naval sea tale that takes you from modern day to the 1800s period flawlessly. If you're ignorant of the reason why the English Empire dominated the seas in the 1700's and 1800's, here's a great place to learn the answer.

  • I just finished the series, actually. Not going to write a review on every last one, so this will have to cover them all.
    I am glad I stumbled onto these. The lot of them carried me through the winter nights this year. While I didn't get much else done, no regrets.
    Very richly written, very detailed, great characters, great stories.
    You can't help but keep rolling from one novel to the next.
    I'm sure there were places where O'Brian wore a bit thin, maybe too much time spent on minor details, but they were brief periods, at worst.
    If you are a fan of the Genre (And obviously there are many, judging from the selection), you have to read through this series. Either this, or the Hornblower books, are what all the others should be judged by.

  • Another superb tale of Aubrey and Maturin and a complex world of astounding historical detail, accuracy and emotional accuracy. Utterly without peer as an historical novel.

  • The item shipped to me was not the item shown. I have the entire collection of these books in the larger format, with a composition image on the book backs. This one would have completed my collection, as the one pictured, and instead, it's from a different, smaller edition of the same series, not matching the 21 others I already own.

  • Once again a mastery of early British Naval tradition by Patrick O'Brian. The descriptions and technical astuteness brings the reader directly onto the quarterdeck of the Surprise. If you are a fan of this series you will continue to find the same level of intense action with subtle undertones of Dr. Maturin's growing affections.
