When a surly pirate and a treasure-hunting nun fall into a cursed jungle with the Order captain tasked with their capture—what else could possibly go wrong?
Seraphina Davalos left her seminary and inserted herself into Captain Mari Adlam's pirate crew to gain passage to a mysterious isle said to hide a secret library. In this library is the knowledge her twin sister—the one chosen by the gods to wield Macario's Scepter—needs to defeat the awakening monsters and stop the end of the world.
No big deal, right? Unfortunately, Captain Luis Fozo is much less concerned with taboo myths and impending doom. He's determined to exact revenge on the pirates responsible for his brother's death.
His plan goes sideways, however, when he falls through an ancient portal and is forced to work together with Seraphina and Mari to survive sirens, harpies, diabolical traps, and whatever else the cursed jungle conjures on their path to the library—and escape.
Their alliance is only temporary, though. He doesn't believe their conspiracy theories about the world ending in the slightest. And he certainly, most definitely—without question—is not falling for a brave, naive nun who's as intelligent as she is beautiful.
It's only a few days, a few monsters, and a few curses. How bad could it be?
A funny, page-turning adventure great for fans of Indiana Jones with a dash of Pirates of the Caribbean.
