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 Then Kydd is abruptly withdrawn from the fleet and sent back to Dover on a secret mission to guard a mysterious American inventor.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.

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.
