Until the Sea Shall Give Up Her DeadUnder the command of the steadfast Captain Charles Hayden, Royal Navy frigate HMS Themis is sent across the Atlantic to counter the threat of the French forces in the West Indies. But before she strikes port in Barbados, the Themis intercepts a single boat adrift in the middle of the ocean - its sole occupants, two young Spanish noblemen. But not is all as it seems with Hayden's unexpected guests.

The mystery only deepens as Hayden's ship reaches Barbados, where he must take new orders from the Admiral. Hayden finds his ship in a squadron under the command of the conceited Sir William Jones, who involves Hayden on a course of action so foolhardy that he is faced with losing many of his men. Once again, the Themis is thrown into the most violent of action against the enemy - and Hayden must make the hardest choice of all, life or death?
