The Blooding of Jack Absolute Kindle Edition
The brilliant prequel to JACK ABSOLUTE...
London 1759 and Jack's life is easy. A scholar at Westminster School, a master with cricket bat or billiard cue, the leader of a gang of bucks about the Town, he has both a girl he worships and a courtesan teaching him the more basic arts of love. Yet he plans to give up all carousing, sit the examinations for Cambridge, find a career in any field he chooses. If he can just stay out of trouble for one night...
From the billiard halls and brothels of London to a clash of Empires on the Plains of Abraham, Jack's life is forever altered by the tragedies of that night. Through duels, battles, frantic escapes and a brutal winter spent in a cave in Canada, the schoolboy will vanish, and a man appear.
But first he must learn to kill. To come of age, Jack Absolute must be blooded.

I really enjoyed this novel. I found it more humorous and enjoyable than just about any of the Bernard Cornwell's 'Sharpe' series. The book is brilliantly well researched with notes on the authors reading list and adventures at the end. Save a tree and buy this great novel from one of Amazons great 2nd hand book dealers.
