All I wanted to do was to get away from England to a new life.
For Christopher Newly, a wiry, redheaded British lad of nineteen, signing on to a ship while on the lawless Island of Tortola in the Caribbean seemed to be the only way to reach his goal of securing a better life than the one of indentured servitude he had left behind in England. Little did he know, the Jolly Roger flag hoisted above his head at dawn and Captain Ethan Pike, the captain of the Sovereign of the Seas, would make him wealthy beyond his wildest dreams and set him down on a path of breathtaking adventures beyond the realm of any imagination.
This rags to riches pirate tale takes place back in 1799, when the golden age of piracy was coming to its end. The HMS Sovereign of the Seas was King George’s prize possession until Captain Pike relieved the king of her. Captain Pike’s map of the sea leads the crew on a perilous quest, with the witch of the sea, Miranda, following their every move. Newly tells the lighthearted tale, fit for the entire family, of the crew’s search for the four keys of the sea. Their adventurous journey takes them across the Caribbean Sea fighting off the British Navy and finding unimaginable adventures, wonderful scenes, unbelievable horrors, and magnificent treasures.
In a nut shell, these pirates want those four keys and they will pretty much do anything to get them. The Four Keys of the Sea have been scattered across land, oceans and time, never meant to be found. The lock the keys fit was never meant to be opened again because of the great evil it holds back. Even the idea that one man or one creature could hold the Great Map of the Sea and all of its four keys in a single place at the same time was considered so dangerous it was unthinkable.
The crew soon realizes each key can be found on a different island and each island is a different world, a different adventure, sometimes even a different time. Demons, devils, witches and sea maidens all play an important role in this fine tale, many willing to help the captain and crew and many out to stop them. And let’s not forget the British Navy that is constantly hunting them.
What happens if all four keys are held in one place, in one time, by one man or creature? Well you will just have to find out the answer to that question on your own mate!
Be careful though mates and just remember……
“The Map of the Sea Awaits You All.”
If you open this book you’ll be a member of Captain Pike’s crew and that witch will know who you are! I’d hate to see anything happen to you!
