Kestrel came to the seas for a life of straightforward pirate glory and to escape the magic hunters. When her captain is arrested, and set to hang, she’ll rescue him or die trying. To save him she’ll have to face magic, secrets, foul enemies, and a handsome knave. Will she succeed or will her sailing days end in death?
Mad Kestrel has the dangerous daring-do of a pirate tale with magic added to provide fantasy flavor. These elements and a dash of political intrigue provide a fun escapist feel. Kestrel is tough, thinks fast in tight corners, and thrives in a traditional male world. She grows from a capable Quartermaster into a tale-worthy leader. Mad Kestrel offers pirates, magic, and/or a strong female protagonist.
