Description

Shannon Chakraborty, the bestselling author of The City of Brass, launches a new trilogy of magic and mayhem with this tale of pirates and sorcerers, forbidden artefacts and ancient mysteries, and one woman’s quest to seize a final chance at glory…
A pirate of infamy and one of the most storied and scandalous captains to sail the seven seas.

Amina al-Sirafi has survived backstabbing rogues, vengeful merchant princes, several husbands, and one actual demon to retire peacefully with her family to a life of piety, motherhood, and absolutely nothing that hints of the supernatural.

But when she’s offered a job no bandit could refuse, she jumps at the chance for one final adventure with her old crew that will make her a legend and offers a fortune that will secure her and her family’s future forever.

Yet the deeper Amina dives the higher the stakes. For there’s always risk in wanting to become a legend, to seize one last chance at glory, to savour just a bit more power…and the price might be your very soul.

Critic Reviews

“'Chakraborty's seafaring adventure is pure incandescence and adrenaline. Readers will leave these pages with their lungs full of ocean air, their fingertips glittered with magic and their hearts a little heavier for being both smitten and heartbroken by its finely drawn, poignant cast of characters. This is a book I will daydream of for years to come' Roshani Chokshi, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of THE GILDED WOLVES 'Chakraborty delivers again with a captivating story of motherhood, faith, friendship, dangerous magic, and hijinks on the high seas. Amina al-Sirafi is now my favorite pirate captain and I'm on board to follow all her adventures' Fonda Lee, author of The Green Bone Saga 'Chakraborty's latest unfurls like a scroll of ancient parchment, conjuring realer-than-life monsters, menacing magic, and a heroine with a gnarled, beating heart. An exhilarating, propulsive adventure, stitched from the threads of real history, Amina's adventures are the reason to read fantasy. I'll follow this captain and her crew anywhere' Ava Reid, internationally bestselling author of THE WOLF AND THE WOODSMAN”

‘A thrilling, transportive adventure that is everything promised – Chakraborty’s storytelling is fantasy at its best.’
R.F Kuang, the SUNDAY AND NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of BABEL

Ava Reid, internationally bestselling author of THE WOLF AND THE WOODSMAN

‘A marvellous and enthralling tale filled with wonders (and horrors), the best of which is Amina herself: witty, conflicted, loyal, ambitious, (mostly) honest, (occasionally) foul-mouthed, and so very relatable as she struggles to save herself, her crew, and the family she loves but so often left behind’
Kate Elliott, author of UNCONQUERABLE SUN and SERVANT MAGE
