(From the publisher):
When young apprentice surgeon Thomas Spyre has a chance to sail with the legendary sea-fighter Sir Francis Drake, he knows it is the beginning of a great adventure- but the voyage turns out to be much more
Thrown into the salty hubbub of shipboard life, Thomas must use his sword as well as his medical skills, and he finds a dashing and enigmatic friend in the controversial Admiral Drake. Is Drake the hero of legend, or is he little more than a glorified pirate, looting an unsuspecting enemy to fill Queen Elizabeth’s coffers?
