Reviews - What do customers think about The Midshipman Prince (The First Book in the Sir Sidney Smith Series)?

Great first book in a new series  Feb 20, 2008
This is a great first book to a series that has a lot of potential. I really enjoyed the book and it was even better because it is based upon the life and exploits of Admiral Sir Sydney Smith. Tom Grundner has paved a path into the Age of Sail genre with his new book which will have more stories coming. Be sure to start this series from the first book. You'll enjoy the rollercoaster ride of action and terrific information that you get along the way.
An interesting, new nautical series  Feb 18, 2008
The Midshipman Prince is part historical novel and part history text. We follow Lieutenant Sidney Smith from the Battle of the Capes to the Battle of the Saints, mostly through the eyes of the fictional character, Lucas Walker. Smith and Walker are assigned to rescue Midshipman William Henry Hanover, third son of George III, from Yorktown and their adventure continues from there.

At times, the story is interrupted slightly with an explanation that puts events into historical context, including things from the every day life of a sailor of the time. I found the book to be an interesting naval adventure, one that gets better as the story progresses. The author seems to find his footing after the characters have been established and I raced through the last half of the book. I am looking forward to reading the next installment in the series.
