Rescued, Aubrey & Maturin take pleasure in their every day routine again aboard the Shockthat goes again to chasing the Norfolk. However then it is the climate that begins to uncooperative as soon as once more (Aubrey would later remark that this voyage had probably the most weather-related issues ever), with a hurricane tail hitting the ship. It would not do a lot injury, however it causes Maturin to fall, hit his head, and fall right into a coma. The remainder of the non-doctors assume he must be trepanned, however they want a peaceful sea (or dry land) to attempt to do it safely. Luckily, they spot an island close by.

As they method, they discover a band of shipwrecked white males – the Norfolk crew! O Norfolk is damaged within the lagoon, devastated by the complete pressure of the identical hurricane that hit the Shock. Norfolk’s Captain Palmer claims that the Battle of 1812 is over and subsequently avoids official seize, though Aubrey is cautious of believing him solely, particularly as a stable a part of the Norfolk crew is defecting from HMS Hermoine. In actual life, it was the Shock who recaptured Hermoine after her well-known mutiny, so the Hermoine’s crew have a particular distaste for that ship.

In the meantime, the NorfolkMaturin’s surgeon joins in to assist with Maturin’s trepanation, however simply as that’s about to occur, Maturin comes out of his coma. Ufa!


Extra dangerous climate forces the Shock (with 1st Lieutenant Mowatt in command) to hunt shelter removed from the island, stranding everybody. Aubrey notices that they’re outnumbered on the bottom and tries to determine a method to get off the island utilizing one in all his touchdown craft. They’re approached by ex Nervous crew, however simply when issues are about to get actually ugly, the Shock seems again after weeks away!

And so ends E-book 10, “The Far Facet of the World”! Then E-book 11, “The Reverse of the Medal”.
