Instead of planning her wedding, Ana is preparing for war. Captain Alestair "Cade" Kincade has renounced piracy, but he can't yet forgo being a soldier. Despite the risks and against his beloved's wishes, Cade joins the British fleet at the Battle of the Chesapeake and disappears in the melee. Left on the wrong side of victory without a ship or crew, Ana journeys into hostile territory determined to find him. Fearing he's become a prisoner of war in the American Revolution, she uses her few remaining allies to attempt a rescue. Even if she's successful, there's no guarantee he'll be the same man she once knew. She certainly won't ever be the same girl who just a few weeks earlier set sail for the New World. No matter how much Ana wants to deny it, she will have to become the Pirate Queen or die trying.

Quentin Coldwater is a Magician, but even his extraordinary abilities haven't been enough to defeat the Beast on the first thirty-eight occasions they've faced each other. Thanks to the Watcherwoman, time has re-set after every failed attempt, so when Quentin travels to Fillory with his friends and fellow Brakebills classmates Penny and Julia, he believes it's their first try at what has truly become a futile task. Although "edition thirty-nine" also leaves Quentin dead and the Beast unharmed, one critical element in the equation will change after the fall of Castle Whitespire. Will it be enough to turn the Magician's luck around on their next - and possibly final - mission to battle the beast?

Modeled after Giovanni Boccaccio's classic from the 14th Century, this collection will similarly bring one hundred short stories to Wattpad readers . The original premise was simple: ten individuals entertained themselves over a span of ten days by telling a different tale while hiding out from the plague outside of Florence. Each day had a theme, leading to an end product that was both cohesive, yet unique. This Wattpad collection aims to give readers a similar experience.
