Book Summary:

Put down your bestsellers, it’s time for Pirates 102.
How does anyone know about a pirate if he takes no prisoners, leaves no witnesses and shows no mercy?
During the Dolphin’s maiden voyage, Captain Silversword attacks. In a moment of weakness, he breaks his own rule and press-gangs Samuel Burke into service aboard the Black Flag. Once armed with the knowledge of the infamous pirate’s only weakness, Sam must face his fear and confront Silversword to save his life, his friends and spare England and the world from the pirate’s tyranny or die trying.
Fog of Fortune is book one of the Silversword Chronicles, a Historical Young Adult series with a fresh spin on the business of pirating.
Rediscover the thrill of the sea in this action adventure story. Experience the romance of a time gone by. Feel the lust of the dead man’s chest. And find the strength to walk away from the temptation of treasure.


I met the author of this book last year at a writer’s conference I presented at. Recently I saw his book had been published and part one was free on Amazon prime. I hadn’t used my free book credit for the month so I downloaded it to check it out.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was a fun pirate adventure. Fairly fast paced with lots of great characters and a captivating story line. Lots of twists and turns kept me turning the pages. As soon as I finished part one I emailed him asking for part two which was a great conclusion to the story.

The ebook has been broken into two parts or you can purchase both parts of the book in paperback form. The first part is available for free on Kindle Unlimited/Prime.
