The Ionian Mission

Seeing as I spent most of my day being cargo inside a pressurized aluminum tube I had a chance to get some reading in. First up is the last of the Aubrey-Maturin series that I have in my possession. The Ionian Mission was a fun read, definitely back to the seagoing adventure that the first few books had as their central theme. Not that the others were bad, just different. Jack and Stephen are in the Mediterranean on blockade for a good portion of the story but due to a twist of fate they get sent off on a mission to deliver some cannons to potential allies. The story ends rather abruptly, but I’ve come to expect that and will have to stock up on the next few once I get the stack down a little.
