    This novel, the 3rd entry in the Bliven Putman series, is somewhat a positive departure from the first 2 books covering the early 19th century United States Navy While the main plot line details the U.S missionaries on the Hawaiian islands which the author has already published an excellent non fiction It is listed as one of the further reading entries many other historical topics are covered as well This is very easily the most readable fiction yet, and brings to the fore Bliven s wi This novel, the 3rd entry in the Bliven Putman series, is somewhat a positive departure from the first 2 books covering the early 19th century United States Navy While the main plot line details the U.S missionaries on the Hawaiian islands which the author has already published an excellent non fiction It is listed as one of the further reading entries many other historical topics are covered as well This is very easily the most readable fiction yet, and brings to the fore Bliven s wife Clarity as muchthan a supporting character The great deal of non fictional information is very subtly inserted through the plotting, readingas a novel than a history book.Many who enjoyed the first 2 in this series will be somewhat disappointed that this book is not jammed full of sea battles The author isn t interested in creating a series like the Hornblower Aubrey Maturin books He is creating true historical fictions, giving the readers incredible insight into little known American and world wide activities More readers of fiction and non fiction should follow this author, his writing is superb

    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway It is a great tale of the US Navy around 1820 and the introductio of the first missionaries into Hawaii Full of historical details as well as a good tale Reminiscent of Patrick O Brien s tales Almost as good as C S Forester Lots of ship details and an episode in the waters around SE Asia Highly Recommended.

    Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and give an honest review. This is an historically accurate fictionalized story of the voyage of the USS Rappahanock to the new trade areas of the Pacific It is not on par with Capain and Commander or Horation Hornblower but it gives a easy flowing adventure with clearly delineated good guys and bad guys I would question the level of English language skills that 1819 Hawaiian native wouls have had This story had all of them with near flu Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and give an honest review.

    Good but not greatI enjoyed the book and learned quite a bit about Hawaii s history It lacked the amount of naval action of other books of this genre I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

    The Devil in Paradise makes me want to own a boat or get on a boat or find a boat and sail the seven seas The cover is striking and I enjoyed this one

    Thoroughly satisfying trilogy

    Entrancing, I was swept away from the first to the last pages Romance, pirates, exotic uncharted islands with brutal intelligent men and women that have left their mark on history.
