Princess of the Blood
A Pirate Tale
Captain Roxana Malaventura is a dangerous woman, a condemned pirate and an unreliable narrator. Vengeful, ruthless, capricious and possibly quite mad, she dines and dresses superbly while pursuing the most evil man alive and accidentally rescuing an actual Princess. The Spanish Main is littered with human flotsam – the battered remnants of the 17th Century's European wars – and from the wreckage Captain Malaventura has assembled the extraordinary crew that sails her extraordinary vessel, the Hecate, a copper-bottomed brigantine of fourteen guns.
She invites the Reader to sail with her, scarcely aware of her own desperate need of a companion, one she may trust with her dark and startling secrets, but beware – her deck is no place for the faint-hearted.
