Twelve-year-old cabin boy Shipwreck only wants to find his way home from San Diego to New England, but first he must face snarling mutineers, barefoot bandits, hairbreadth escapes, duels, cunning barkeeps, simmering revenge, secret identities, scrappy orphans, and more.
Reduced to begging and thievery in the streets of London, a thirteen-year-old orphan disguises herself as a boy and connives her way onto a British warship set for high sea adventure in search of pirates.
A bump on the head restores Art's memories of her mother and the exciting life they led, so the sixteen-year-old leaves Angels Academy for Young Maidens, seeks out the pirates who were her family before her mother's death, and leads them back to adventure on the high seas.
Her father was the King of Thieves in the capital city of Tortall, now "retired" to lead the Crown's secret service. Her mother is Alanna, the best fighter in the kingdom and the first woman to ever be a knight.
