Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Winds of Marque by Bennett R. Coles

This is a strange mix of technology and antiquated terminology.   The mode of transportation is interstellar but cutlasses and four shot pistols appear to be the hand weapons of choice.  The overall feel is Horatio Hornblower meets Hans Solo. 

This was an entertaining book regardless of the mixed messages sent by language and technology.   Liam is an accomplished XO who is wondering why he isn’t yet a captain.   Saddled with aristocratic officers, himself a minor noble, Liam chafes at their incompetence.  

Tasked with a secret mission and a new captain, Liam and crew become privateers.
Fun read.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
