The Mauritius Command (Aubrey & Maturin #4) by Patrick O’Brian It’s all on the fours. Fourth swashbuckler, fourth Miss Peregrine’s Steampunk X-Men, fourth Invisible Library. It’s all very old school, and enjoyable. Fourthbook is a big deal, because it’s either revamping or saying, “We’re in this for the long haul, […]
