Publisher's Summary

Napoleon's forces are poised to invade Britain, and Commander Thomas Kydd's ship is at the forefront of the fleet defending the English coast. His honour restored after temporary disgrace in the Channel Islands, and reunited with his ship Teazer, Kydd seizes the chance to fight for his country. Then Kydd is abruptly withdrawn from the fleet and sent back to Dover on a secret mission to guard a mysterious American inventor. Having worked his way up from press-ganged seaman to captain of his own ship, Kydd is furious to find he will miss his opportunity to prove himself in battle. Yet Kydd's role in the approaching war may be the most crucial part he has ever played.

    "Into Double Figures!"

    A tenth book of the series and Kydd and Renzi are still going strong. Once again brilliantly voiced by the excellent Christian Rodska and still just as authentic in detail. This is almost a book of two parts with the first part fairly standard naval fayre as Kydd battles in the Channel. The second is an intriguing assignment for Kydd with an American inventor and becomes mostly a story more about the political machinations surrounding his work.

    Throughout the book the tortured soul that is Renzi is further pushed into acts that for him are unnatural despite his undoubted talent for them. His anguish and Kydd's frustrations lead to an intriguing set of circumstances that kept me interested to the very end.

    "Excellent"

    The first chapter is one of the best moments in the series to this point, provided you have read the previous book in the series 'Treachery'. Amazing, and well worth a listen as are the rest of the books in the Kydd series :)

    "JohnJye"

    Like the previous book by the same author I enjoyed it greatly
    and I find the listening to the Narrator of these audio books
    very good.

    Story
    "Finally, Nicholas Renzi gets interesting (Spoilers"
    What made the experience of listening to Invasion the most enjoyable?

    The subplot about Renzi being coerced into spying again. The trip to Paris and the quick thinking he does on his feet. Renzi is becoming more interesting than Kydd.


    What other book might you compare Invasion to and why?

    Patrick O'brien's HMS Surprise.


    What about Christian Rodska’s performance did you like?

    He's really great to listen to during battle action. However, his American accents are a bit painful.


    Who was the most memorable character of Invasion and why?

    Renzi, having to face his demons about the world of subterfuge.

    "Interesting?"

    A story with a different twist. Kydd ends up running protection for an inventor, who could win the war for Britain. Very little excitement in this one, but still interesting. Rodska does his usually great job.
