Book 1- Cleared For Action:

This book was a very enjoyable read. It doesn't really get exciting until half way through. And even than it's a rather mild read. But I really liked it. The characters also weren't quite a developed as I would have liked. I also got a little lost in the riggings and mainsails and all the ship talk. I would recommend this book for a long car ride, or a long weekend, but it's not something I would recommend if you are looking for thrilling adventure novel.
