What would you do for your Freedom?
Would you steal?
For Edward Thatch, there is no questioning the depths he will go for his Freedom.
Edward didn’t know he bought a former pirate ship, and when the marine captain Isaac Smith threatened to take his ship, and Freedom, away Edward took matters into his own hands.
Edward’s action sends him, and his best friend Henry Morgan, running from the law on an adventure across the historical Caribbean & Latin America. The two will have to fight not only to stay alive, but to stay free during the so-called “Golden Age” of piracy.
Edward also finds that half the ship he bought is locked, and the previous owner left clues to find the keys. Edward and his crew must follow the clues and face games of life and death before they can claim said keys.
Will Edward and Henry embrace the life that’s been thrust upon them, or will they crash against the rocks of their misfortune? See how Blackbeard came to be the scourge of the Caribbean Sea and beyond, and follow him on his fantasy adventures in The Voyages of Queen Anne’s Revenge!
Originally sailing as a whaling ship, an incident with a platoon of Marines forever altered life the life of every crewmember aboard the Freedom. This conflict is the catalyst that led to the evolution of Edward Thatch into the legendary Blackbeard. As Captain of the Freedom Edward has yet to prove himself as a leader, although inexperienced he takes his role seriously with the help of his first mate and best friend. In a series of events Edward is tried and testing along with the crew.
Action-Adventure? Check! Mystery? Check! Comedy? Check! Romance? Yep, Check! This book has it all. I really enjoyed this book. I love the story telling. Usually when you read books about a historical figure, it’s only about that person. Edward is a dynamic character and chooses to add unconventional crewmembers but that only adds to the story. With this story each crewmember is unique and has a believable backstory. The story not only highlights the flaws but also the strengths that every character possesses and is told in an interesting way. There are even fantastical elements but the Author introduces and explains the elements in such a way that you can “believe” the events as they unfold. It is not your conventional pirate story in any way and it is a must read!
