More About the Author

Julian Stockwin was sent at the age of fourteen to Indefatigable, a tough sea-training school. He joined the Royal Navy at fifteen before transferring to the Royal Australian Navy, where he served for eight years in the Far East, Antarctic waters and the South Seas. In Vietnam he saw active service in a carrier task force.

After leaving the Navy (rated Petty Officer), Julian practised as an educational psychologist. He lived for some time in Hong Kong, where he was commissioned into the Royal Naval Reserve. He was awarded the MBE and retired with the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He now lives in Devon with his wife Kathy.

Julian writes historical action adventure novels. He is the author of the Kydd series, the story of one man's journey from pressed man to admiral in the age of fighting sail. Fifteen books have been published to date, with another six projected, one each year. As well, he has written 'Stockwin's Maritime Miscellany', a little non-fiction tome and a historical standalone, 'The Silk Tree', set in the time of Emperor Justinian.

More information can be found on his website at www.julianstockwin.com.

Product Description

Review

Julian Stockwin is the superstar of naval fiction set during the Age of Sail . . . another great seafaring adventure (Warships on TREACHERY)

Another thundering good read for those who love seagoing stories in the Hornblower mould (Peterborough Evening Telegraph)

Another ripping yarn (Good Book Guide on TREACHERY)

Stockwin is a born storyteller and, with his series of intriguing sub-plots, a man with a vivid imagination. Importantly, his research is accurate and first class. TREACHERY is highly recommended. (Flagship)

An absorbing tale (Firetrench)

I was soon turning the pages almost indecently fast...Roll on, the promised adventures of Kydd and Renzi (Independent on KYDD)

Stockwin paints a vivid picture of life aboard the mighty ship-of-the-line...the harsh naval discipline, the rancid food, and the skill of the common sailor are all skilfully evoked. (Daily Express on KYDD) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This is another case of publishers giving a different name to books when published in America...I have had the same problem with Bernard Cornwell's and Allan Mallinson's books and have had to return them.
Please Amazon, let people know that this book is identical to 'Treachery' before they order it...will save everyone time and trouble.

This book is an American version of Treachery. So if you already have Treachere don't buy it.

As for Treachery it's another good Stockwin, no better or worse than the others. If you like the other ones read also Treachery.

I bought The Privateers Revenge and Treachery at the same time, both by Julian Stockwin. The former was printed in the USA with a different title but was the same book as Treachery printed in the UK. I have e-mailed the author and he stated that he had doubts about this to the publisher but it was out of his hands. He sent me a free copy of Invasion and apologised which I found to be good.

Stockwin does it once again! A spell is cast over the reader to haul them into the world of Thomas Kydd, an English lad who has risen from a pressed man of the lower deck to the quarterdeck over a series of novels. This story picks up where "The Admiral's Daughter" leaves off, with Kydd in agony over the loss of his bride to be. He goes from low to lower as his career is driven upon the rocks and he must use all of his ability, strength and character to overcome these obsticles. His friend and shipmate, Nicholas Renzi, is drawn into the world of early naval intelligence and becomes a key in the struggle to overcome the injustice heaped upon Kydd. His keen mind an asset to the forces that do battle with the forces of Napoleon. In this novel we get to experience the world of privateers, letters of marque, and we learn of the many differences and similarities between them and naval service. Kydd experiences his disappointments and rewards in this journey through another stage in his life and career. I see this as a pivetal period in Kydd's life, one in which he gains strength and experience that will stand in his stead in the years and books, to come. Well done Stockwin!!!

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Parm TOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 July 2011
Format: Paperback
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 characters

All of this coupled with Julians obvious passion for the sea and all things nautical, this is a series that does rank up there with Forrester and O'Brian, every year i look forward to my new instalment of Kydd...but to get there you have to start at the beginning dont spoil it and come in part way.

Well recommended

Very enjoyable - I've enjoyed his whole series. When you have run out of O'Brian, Forester, Cornwell, McDowell, Iggulden et al novels to read, whilst this series is not quite to their level, it's very enjoyable. Somewhat like O'Brian novels, the further Stockwin progresses in his series, the better his writing craft becomes. He also seems to know his technical detail extremely well. Like with those others I face the last few books in the series with the knowledge I then have settle down to wait for new books to be published - i"m a fan for life and will read them all. Long may Kydd and Renzi sail the oceans of the world!

I am a keen reader of Julian Stockwin's 'Kydd' books which I find both interesting and most readable. On 1/12/11 I ordered 'The Privateer's Revenge' from Amazon. On delivery I was surprised to find that this is the identical book by Julian Stockwin entitled 'Treachery' which I had ordered from Amazon on 28/11/11. I see that 'The Privateer's Revenge' is published in New York and 'Treachery' in the UK. I wonder if the author knows that his book is being sold with 2 different titles? This fact should be made clear to anyone purchasing these books to save them wasting money as I have!

This is the third or fourth novel I've read by this author, together with his hero. The author certainly knows his subject and the time that the novels are set in, almost to the point of being over the top in his expressing the extent of his knowledge. However, seeing passed this I find his novels enjoyable and I shall certainly pick up and look forward to reading the remaining stories featuring Mr Kydde.
