Deadmen tell their tales . . .
To catch evil, it takes evil. Enter Devyl Bane―an ancient dark warlord returned to the human realm as one of the most notorious pirates in the New World. A man of many secrets, Bane makes a pact with Thorn―an immortal charged with securing the worst creations the ancient gods ever released into our world. Those powers have been imprisoned for eons behind enchanted gates . . . gates that are beginning to buckle. At Thorn’s behest, Bane takes command of a crew of Deadmen and, together, they are humanity’s last hope to restore the gates and return the damned to their hell realms.
But things are never so simple. And one of Bane’s biggest problems is the ship they sail upon. For the Sea Witch isn’t just a vessel, she’s also a woman born of an ancient people he wronged and who in turn wronged him during a centuries long war between their two races―a woman who is also sister to their primary target. Now Marcelina, the Sea Witch, must choose. Either she remains loyal to her evil sister and almost extinct race against Bane and his cause, and watches humanity fall, or she puts faith in an enemy who has already betrayed her. Her people over the totality of humanity―let’s hope Bane can sway her favor.

When asked if I was interested in reviewing this title, it only took the words ‘fantasy’ and ‘pirates’ in the same sentence for the UK publisher to woo me. Come on, can you blame me? Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pirate’s read for me . . .

What an adventure! This story has it all, pirates, magical creatures, curses, vile villains, myths, epic battles, and hope for redemption. This last part is easier said than done, though. In order to earn a precious gift such as a second chance at life, a crew of Deadmen tries their hardest to save humanity from evil threats, while in the process of fighting their own demons. Something the Captain of the ship—a former dark warlord who used to be perhaps the most dangerous one you could ever encounter—knows way too well. His past doesn’t give him a rest and it certainly doesn’t make it see a chance to redeem himself, but for all his faults and damnation, he is far way better than one would care to admit. Can the only one who matters (to him) get past everything, and see what so far she depicted as despicable?

I loved every page, I was entranced by the characters and every twist and turn, and now I feel like I’m part of the crew. Lovers of fantasy, grab this book and ask Captain Bane for permission to come aboard!
