It should come as no surprise to those who have followed author Seth Hunter's adventures of Nathan Peake through the first 5 novels in this series, that The Spoils of Conquest is "more of the same" enjoyable historic naval fiction, this time set in a real and important venue of the then building British empire. Better knowledge of the HEIC (honorable East India Company) can, at best, expand the reader's knowledge of the forces that swayed and even moved England in this period and, at the least provide interesting conversation at a historical society dinner or your local pub.

The 'administer' of this mix of action, adventure and history is certainly adept at his task and that should come as no surprise as Seth Hunter is 'in reality' accomplished British author Paul Bryers. His writing style is '1st class' as he keeps the story moving quickly forward, providing graphic description, injecting humor, and always a plausible scenario. Author Seth Hunter has 'done his historical homework' and his understanding of naval combat and sail evolution of the period makes this a "good read" for both the 'armchair Age of Sail history student' and the HNF reader seeking a 'good yarn'.

Halfway through I had second thoughts about having purchased this book (read all the other ones in the series) sitnce the main characters are not involved in any action but are set in more discoursive situations. Interesting though because you get to know them better and change your opinion about parts of their personalities. Anyway, there is plenty of naval action in the second half and a very descriptive journey in foreign countries. In the end I really liked it. Awaiting the next one!

I have read all the books in the Nathan Peake series so far and none have disappointed. The characters are engaging, the action exciting and the background nicely researched. Looking forward to the next adventure.

This series was only supposed to be a trilogy, and we are delighted that it is popular enough to have reached six books. The plot is well crafted, as Nathan Peake follows the trail of a real Royal Navy Lieutenant. And it then goes on to include the Bombay Marine, which was the naval branch of the Honorable East India Company. We have found a few other novels about them, but they are few and far between, so this was refreshing.

I liked the two previous books so waited for this one with enthousiasm. I was completely disappointed. Our hero has a secret mission which he defaults on due to hopes of capturing a frigate with the view to more prize money. After that it all goes downhill.
A third of the book is taken up with the heroine who is under the idea he has married someone else. Of course we know all will come right in the end, or the series would finish.
