The Shattered Isles are at peace. Or so it seems. The vile pirate lord, Bloodwind, has been vanquished, and Cynthia Flaxal has everything she always dreamed of: the mystical powers of a seamage, a successful shipyard, the love of a great man, and a child on the way. But trouble roils both above and below the waves. A school of vengeful merfolk harbors a secret and terrible agenda. An empire perceives Cynthia's growing fleet as a threat. A small band of surviving pirates hatches a devious plot to regain supremacy in the Shattered Isles. A favor to an old friend leaves Cynthia with a powerful but undisciplined young pyromage on her hands. And as all these forces converge, the Seamage of the Shattered Isles finds herself and her unborn child caught right in the middle.
Chris A. Jackson fell in love with the sea the first time he set eyes on those majestic rolling waves. As a youth, he spent summers working on his father's fishing boat in Oregon. Trained as a marine biologist, he became sidetracked by a career in biomedical research, but regained his heart and soul in 2009 when he and his wife Anne left the dock aboard a 45-foot sailboat to cruise the Caribbean and write full time. His acclaimed Scimitar Seas nautical fantasies won three consecutive Gold Medals in the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards. In addition to his sea tales, his repertoire includes six more award-winning fantasy novels, as well as several short stories published in anthologies. Shooting from the sea to the stars, Chris now has a triad of science fiction/humor novellas available in both ebook and audiobook formats.
