This is the sequel to Butterfly Islands. If you have not yet read Butterfly Islands, then I suggest that you read that one first to get the most out of Maelstrom. You can find Butterfly Islands here on Wattpad as well. I will upload a chapter every Monday for 20 Mondays in a row until the entire story in here on Wattpad. Be sure to vote on it if you like it and comments are more than welcome:-) Blurb: The Twenty-One Butterflies are thrown into a fast-paced rescue of two-thousand street children that the tyrannical Governor Johnson has enslaved to work in the dark and gruesome Monolith mines. Meanwhile a powerful artifact is discovered at the bottom of a mysterious vortex in the middle of the sea, and both pirates and the Governor will do anything in their power to get their hands on it. In the middle of dangers and action, young Buckeye struggles with her own sexuality as her relationship to her friend Dawn becomes more intimate, while she at the same time finds herself romantically attracted to Blake, the son of the most feared pirate in Gallows Sound.
