Another 'well told story' in a series that I've continued to enjoy.

Alaric doesn't disappoint and I recommend it.

I'm in the middle of it and can't help but agree.

As 80 Winters says, this is now in my wake and I'm sorry to see it drift over the horizon. All I can do is look ahead for the next installment.
Spoilers ahead:
I admit to being taken aback by King's decision to allow Hunt to escape the consequences of his act of murder. The only precedent I can recollect was Hornblower's allowing his steward to desert to escape the consequences of striking a superior officer. That was a bit different in that he circumvented a naval regulation, whereas King circumvented local law. I wonder how prevalent such actions were (and still are) in the armed forces.
I wonder if there will be repercussions for King in future installments - there were witnesses present for Hunt's receipt of the Spiteri who will be able to guess what King allowed ...

Thanks for the comments, gentlemen, they have buoyed me up magnificently. Currently 15k into the next, which will be a little different (have I said that before?). With regards to Reb's question about repercussions, there may well be, although perhaps not quite as expected...

I have very much enjoyed the series, and was happy to note that the last chapter set things up nicely for a continuation in the series.
