Description

Master and Commander Charles Hayden returns in the sequel to the international best-seller Under Enemy Colors. Winter, 1793-the Reign of Terror rips through revolutionary France. In Plymouth, England, Master and Commander Charles Hayden is given orders to return to the ill-fated HMS Themis as the British fight the French for control of the strategically located island of Corsica. But within hours out of port, Hayden's uncanny knack for attracting the attention of the French navy sees the Themis thrown back into action. When she lands in Corsica, and her men join forces with native insurgents, Hayden finds himself at the vanguard of a brutal clash of empires. "Vivid and evocative, especially about what Mr. Russell knows best, the sea and sailing."-Wall Street Journal on Under Enemy Colors "A first-rate debut features taut plotting, liberal action, and an attractively modest hero: Royal Navy Lieutenant Charles Hayden."-Publishers Weekly on Under Enemy Colors "A colorful account of duty and honor, punctuated by the cannonade of naval welfare."-Kirkus Reviews on Under Enemy Colors

Professional reviews

"Fans of naval historical fiction will thoroughly enjoy Nick Boulton's narration of this follow-up to UNDER ENEMY COLORS. His dexterous voice gives Master and Commander Charles Hayden a well-rounded personality as he fights for England during the French Revolutionary Wars. Hayden is often frustrated by the unavoidable politics of the British Navy and the stresses of social criticism, but he uses his inestimable skills to pull his ship and crew through countless difficult situations. Boulton also succeeds in delivering impressive and varied performances for the supporting characters with precision and panache. This well-researched story of naval warfare is action packed. Boulton's performance draws us in and takes us back in time. K.O. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
