Forgiveness is something Zeballos Artino can't grant his recently deceased father. George Artino withheld crucial information about Zeb's heritage, information that may explain Zeb's extraordinary abilities. Now, Zeb must search for answers while concealing his hidden talents.
Together, they navigate dangerous waters, dodge ruthless fishermen, and dive into uncharted knowledge. They may find the answers they desire, but what other questions will emerge from the depths of the ocean?
Free Dive is a fast-paced, fantasy adventure on the deep blue sea.
This, the first in the splendid series of Jack Aubrey novels, establishes the friendship between Captain Aubrey, R.N., and Stephen Maturin, ship's surgeon and intelligence agent, against a thrilling backdrop of the Napoleonic wars. Details of a life aboard a man-of-war in Nelson's navy are faultlessly rendered: the conversational idiom of the officers in the ward room and the men on the lower deck, the food, the floggings, the mysteries of the wind and the rigging, and the roar of broadsides as the great ships close in battle.
