Alaric Bond has just released the latest book in the Fighting Sail series, HMS Prometheus , which is now available in ebook formats worldwide and will be released in paperback shortly.
With Britain under the threat of invasion, HMS Prometheus is needed to reinforce Nelson’s ships blockading the French off Toulon. But a major action has left her severely damaged and the Mediterranean fleet outnumbered. Prometheus must be brought back to fighting order without delay, yet the work required proves more complex than a simple refit.
Barbary pirates, shore batteries and the powerful French Navy are conventional opponents, although the men of Prometheus encounter additional enemies, within their own ranks. A story that combines vivid action with sensitive character portrayal. Number eight in the Fighting Sail series.
