There is nothing worse for a pirate than dying on dry land. Except, maybe, swinging two feet above it. 

When their captain is imprisoned, facing the gallows, the men and women of the Lady Lesya's crew will try everything to break him out--even if it means fighting guards in ridiculous uniforms, bargaining with overweight monsters, and risking the life of the more or less innocent. 

Add vengeful local thugs, a mysterious killer with a grudge, and some unexpected ghosts to this already perilous task, and the streets of Puerto Seguro turn into a bloodbath.

To get out of the town alive, the brethren of the coast will have to act not just as a crew, but as a family.


As it's a pirate story not created by Disney, expect strong language, violence, gore, and allusion to sex. But also humor, strong characters, and a touch of love.

The story, three years and a half in the making, is now complete (and under revision).

I like how you actually have the reviews in the beginning of the book, to show what the first time readers to expect. I am going to check it out now!

Really enjoying the beginning. A good hook is what keeps somebody reading, and I already like the set up and pirate introductions

Amazing phrase 'his face, half eaten by his beard'.  Like it.
