ACCLAIM FOR JULIAN STOCKWIN’S Artemis Salt spray and the aroma of tarred rigging and powder fly off the pages .

ACCLAIM FOR JULIAN STOCKWIN’S Artemis Salt spray and the aroma of tarred rigging and powder fly off the pages, with readers likely to be clamoring for Seaflower, the next title in Kydd’s. Ex-Navy officer Stockwin’s second novel is a rip-roaring yarn that confirms faith in his ability to turn his vivid knowledge of eighteenth-century seafaring into first-rate global adventure.

With Kydd, Julian Stockwin introduced us to a young wig-maker from Guildford who was kidnapped and pressed into duty with the tempestuous crew of the Duke William battle ship. Artemis is the eighteenth-century crack frigate that Kydd and sea-mate.

What followed was a particularly difficult and perilous piece of seamanship. The Hooghly was wide enough, but with so many other vessels at anchor it was necessary. to get control on the ship as fast as possible after she was freed of the ground. But she had a leeward tide - the northerly monsoon wind was in the same direction that the current was drifting the ship. This meant that although they were moving smartly relative to the river bottom, they were not actually moving through the water

I think I would have enjoyed this much more in my teens when I read the Horatio Hornblower series or the Patrick O'Brian books. The sea talk is actually much more technical but I don't think that the characters are quite as intriguing or well developed as in the above mentioned series but I will most likely continue on in the series as time permits.

Sure, Stockwin does not write a story like C.S. Forester, but Stockwin's Kydd series has an awesome depth of seamanship -- explanations of the technology needed just to keep a sailing warship afloat. Kydd fights fewer battles than other heroes of "Royal Navy against Bonaparte", but that seems accurate...and welcome.

Further, Kydd is one of the few series that show something of what the sailors thought, felt, and would have said. We follow Thomas Paine Kydd as he learns seamanship, beginning as a "landsman" -- pressed wig-maker in "Kydd" -- to a seaman skilled above deck and at the helm.

Very enjoyable although a little slow moving in places whilst the author builds the story line and develops the characters, essential I suppose in a series that I think is now up to book 14. I would however have enjoyed a little more battle action but will definitely buy the next book as a friend of mine is still hooked after book 14

Nicanagy
Second in the series. Plenty of action, a love story and two escapes from being stuck ashore for the rest of Kydd's life.

Conjuril
Some inaccuracys, A pressed man being allowed shore leave in time of war? being allowed to just walk off the ship and out of the navy on his sisters request? Renzi giving a carter half a crown for a ride on the carters wagon? a penny or two maybe not half a crown.
other than that not a bad read but not up to the standard of some other authors.

Artemis: A Kydd Sea Adventure (Kydd Sea Adventures)
An interesting, if fictional look at the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic era, from the point of view of the lower deck. Plenty of derring-do and buckets of swash. The characters are three dimensional (mostly) though not in the same league with Aubrey and Maturin. Well worth a read and a promising installment of this series.

Burking
Kind of jumpy plotting, but still a good read and incentive to read the next volume in the series.

This book was a continuation of Kydd,s learning about the sea from the lowerdeck. I enjoyed his trials of learning his trade and his luck in movilng forward. The ending chapter was a surprise but am looking forward to seeing what tribulations he has to face in the future
