I was caught up in this book immediately, and found its fast pace pulled me along inexorably until I’d stayed up far too late at night reading. :) I found it a good example of taking something known (the British navy) and twisting it with something new (transplanting it to deep space and another system of worlds) to make a satisfying milieu. Despite the quick pace and action, I thought there were enough insights into the characters to make them real people and not just caricatures, and the plot was intriguing. A little disappointed in the abrupt ending, but a cliffhanger ending in the first book of a series is the rule rather than the exception.
