Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, the second installment of Julian Stockwin's internationally bestselling naval adventure series captures the triumph, tragedy, and gritty reality of life at sea on a Napoleonic-era frigate. Reminiscent of such great storytellers as C.S. Forester and Patrick O'Brian, author Julian Stockwin brings the passion and authenticity of a professional seaman to this compulsively readable new series of historical novels. Young Thomas Kydd, kidnapped and forced to sea in Kydd, the first book in the series, now joins his friend, Nicholas Renzi, to ship out on the crack frigate Artemis. Surviving a fierce battle against the French, Artemis soon heads on a perilous journey to India, China, the South Seas and around the world. Fever, tempest, and even mutiny will test Kydd's resolve, but he ultimately experiences first love and finds strength and purpose in the unique fellowship of the sea. Julian Stockwin, with his love for the sea and his vast experience, is the perfect author for this dynamic and exhilarating series.

Synopsis:

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. Now, Thomas Paine Kydd is back — with a vengeance — in the latest installment of Stockwin's thrilling naval adventure series.

Artemis is the eighteenth-century crack frigate that Kydd and sea-mate Nicholas Renzi are set to sail all the way to the fabled Far East. In this great age of fighting sailing ships, Kydd's voyage promises to be a perilous undertaking. But not even shipwreck, mutiny, or a confrontation with a mighty French frigate manages to thwart Artemis and her crew. It's only when Kydd receives an urgent message from home — one that threatens to cut short his career and trap him on shore forever — that Artemis's real journey begins.

Filled with mesmerizing suspense and vivid details of Napoleonic-era seafaring, Artemis is classic, page-turning storytelling at its best.
