In the Year of our Lord at the end of the 17th Century...
Welcome to the Golden Era of Piracy. Thieves, buccaneers, con artists and sea wolves of every race and nation ply the open trade lanes, from the Caribbean to the Indian Ocean, from the Red Sea to the ports of London in their quest for fortune and glory.
Most found the King's justice at the end of a rope or met their death at the hands of other sea rovers before finding that chest of buried treasure. Even the warm waters of the Carib was merciless in dealing that final sentence, with her deadly sharks and killing hurricanos.
Within these pages, you'll meet some of the thousands of men and women who sailed such dangerous waters. It was a time of espionage and merciless raids, the taking of fortified cites, plundering gold and silver-laiden ships upon the high seas; sailing in consort toward a greater end with one's sworn enemies. Death and destruction were commonplace. Alliances changed overnight. The sea captain who was once your friend is now your enemy... Men and Women, with their iron courage and razor wit, challenging the very elements they should fear.
Along the Spanish Main gathered some of the most extraordinarily daring people who ever lived. In the East, pirates and brigands risks their lives plundering the powerful Dutch and the Portugese trading routes. In Indonesia and Japan they sailed their ships in that glorious quest for gold and immortality, all manner of banners waving atop that mizzen.
From Barbados, along the High Seas to the fabled Port Royal, Madagascar and up along the African coastline, you will find tales both thrilling and chilling, everything a pirate story should contain. It's funny, it's romantic, it's sexy and explosively exciting all the way through. Come aboard, if you dare.
