1795: Young warriors Nelson and Napoleon learn the art of war and the cost of fame . . .

The third novel in this epic, thrilling series of war and villainy on the high seas, featuring Captain Nathan Peake . Seth Hunter's brilliant series will enthral fans of Dudley Pope and Patrick O'Brian.

'Another slick nautical adventure in the Patrick O'Brian tradition . . . rousing naval battles, twisty plot, and muscular prose' Publishers Weekly on THE TIDE OF WAR

Nathan Peake charts a perilous course through the treacherous seas off Brittany and into the even more dangerous waters of post-Revolutionary Paris. There he encounters two of the most beautiful and scandalous courtesans in history - and their little toy soldier, laughingly dubbed Captain Cannon, who is about to win enduring fame as Napoleon Bonaparte.

Returned to the command of the frigate Unicorn , Nathan is sent to join another young glory-seeker, Captain Horatio Nelson, in a bid to wreck Bonaparte's plans for the invasion of Italy. But Nathan has his own private agenda - to find his lost love amid the chaos of war - and as the fighting spreads from the mountains to the sea, he discovers that glory comes at a higher price than all the gold in the vaults of Genoa.

What readers are saying about THE PRICE OF GLORY:

' Seth Hunter is a natural storyteller and a master of description , whether it be wild seas , ship to ship battles, dangerous political intrigue or the natural beauty of the countryside when Nathan Peake is ashore. Totally absorbing '

'A really fantastic read and immaculately researched '

'[Seth Hunter's] is a natural storyteller and his prose is beautifully elegant . There's wit, adventure, big seas, monumental battles , and even a moving love story . A delight '
