An entertaining and even informative look at British policy and action concerning the adolescent United States. Royal Navy officer Nathan Peake must navigate stormy political and personal waters in this tone-perfect novel of nautical intrigue.

--David Poyer, author of the Dan Lenson novels of the modern U.S. Navy

What fabulous books. We see so many times on the Facebook groups, "What do I read after O'Brian?" Well, here you go: Seth Hunter and the Nathan Peake series. Outstanding.

Really engaging. Seth Hunter has a more natural storyteller's eye than Patrick O'Brian . . . well wrought and deftly told.

The action is handled with complete assurance and all matters nautical carry the requisite salty whiff of authenticity . . . Hunter keeps the plot continually on the boil.

Will exceed expectations of lovers of historical fiction. Anyone who appreciates excellent prose, witty anecdotes, complex action, intertwining plots, and all-round great writing will anxiously await the next installment.

[Hunter] delivers another slick nautical adventure in the Patrick O'Brian tradition . . . The rousing naval battles, twisty plot, and muscular prose lift Hunter's nautical yarn a few notches above the competition.

Imaginative, knowledgeable, fast-moving . . . full of twists and turns.

-- "Naval Review"
