"A great listen"
I remember reading Midshipman Bilitho when I was much younger, this moves the character along as he experiences the trials of being a lieutenant and his first brush with the fairer sex. It is a shame that the next book in the series is no available through audible.
"Stand into danger"
As with all Alexander Kent stories the detail is excellent,but never so excessive that they bog down the story. The characters are realistic and believable,combining everyday life aboard the ships with exciting actions and smaller human sub plots, that bring the 19th century navy into the reader/listener's imagination
