After a lifetime aboard ship, a pirate's son longs for a life on shore.
Son of the feared pirate, Nicolo Soranzo, Sebastian longs for a life on land–a life free of crime, fear, and the embarrassment of wearing dresses during battle. For ten years, their ship, The Vengeance, has sailed through Mediterranean waters, and even the Barbary Corsairs flee in the wake of their arrival.
To pass the time at night, the boatswain and long-time loyal friend regales the crew with exciting stories of adventure. But when Jaime begins a new tale, Sebastian learns to understand a little of why his father allows his hate of injustice to drive him to seek revenge against those who prey on others.
The only question in his mind: Is it right to seek revenge at all?
