I literally flipped this book off upon finshing it and discovering that 1) it is the second of a trilogy and 2) not based at all on a real ship, or a real person, or real battles tells me that A) I don't read book jackets well and B) this was one rocking book. You try reading during those battle scenes, I dare you.

Unto, unto sir! This is an excellent novel (the best of the three in my opinion). The battle scenes are so well written you can smell the powder smoke and taste the blood. So take up your cutlass and pistol and read this book with all possible speed.

This novel continues the story begun in Fire On the Waters, telling of the experiences of a young officer aboard a Confederate Navy raider during the Civil War. All in all, an excellent tale which puts the reader right there on deck during our country's great struggle against itself.
