    One thought on “The Privateer's Revenge

      The first part of the book seemed rather unsteady. I think because I'm so used to Kydd always being the upbeat one and Renzi being the one prone to the gloomy fits, that Angsty!Kydd didn't really resonate. That said, after that point the story pulls together and zips along. I didn't so much read it as inhale it.

      Butch, Central patron, June 2017, 5 stars:His career in the Royal Navy in tatters and his happiness destroyed, Commander Kydd is sent to Guernsey in disgrace, consigned to a quiet backwater guarding the Channel Islands. Would he ever escape the exile?His sense of duty becomes his obsession. Hungering for victories over the French he becomes reckless, ready to sacrifice not just himself but his men. His best friend Nicholas Renzi warns him of the dangers looming but to no avail. Brutally betrayed [...]

      I don’t buy many hardbacks when they’re released. Instead, I typically put it on hold first through my neighborhood public library or – failing that – wait until it comes out in paperback a year or so later. However, Julian Stockwin’s Napoleonic-era British naval series about rising star Thomas Kydd is one that I pre-order immediately through the moment I hear it will be out in the next new release season. Which, I proudly admit, is exactly what I did with this, the ninth book in the [...]

      This is the ninth novel in the Kydd Sea Adventure series by Julian Stockwin. It ranks every bit as high, in my opinion, as the preceding novels of the series. By now, Kydd and his friend Renzi have become like Aubrey and Maturin of the Patrick J. O'Brian series. Kydd is captain of the brig/sloop HMS Teazer and is assigned to the Channel Islands fleet. Renzi, who has resigned from the Naval service, serves on board Teazer as the captain's clerk.After having carried out a secret mission for the Ad [...]

      This book like the story its self seems to dust its self off from the disapointment and loss of the last book, Kydd, has to put the personal loss behind him and try and resurect his career, and we the reader need to put behind us the last book and the fact it didnt resonante, and what a book to do it with, this is stockwin back with a vengence, the power and pace we have come to expect, and the pacey story and wonderful charactersAll of this coupled with Julians obvious passion for the sea and a [...]

      I'm a big fan of naval history, and I really enjoyed this, although in a way less than the last book, despite a lot of other negative reviews. I suppose it's because Treachery is a bit predictable. The title itself gives you a clue what happens, and you know the hero prevails in the end so the rest is largely filler.Certainly worth a read though and enjoyable none the less.

      Always a great series. I had to go back and re-read the book before this one just to keep up with the opening couple of chapters (there was a lot going on) but always enjoyable. I can't wait to read the next one!

      Another fine story from Mr. Stockwin. I continue to enjoy the various stories within the main story. Kydd and Renzi adventures are interesting and fun. Once again I look forward to reading more of the Kydd series.

      This book is published in the UK with an alternative title "Treachery".

    10. Glen Raffel on said:

      Pretty engaging book relative to the series. The plot is a bit derivative of "The Reverse of the Medal" with Renzi becoming even more Maturin-like and Kydd being framed.
