'A vivid and powerful story ... Another tour de force by Alex Wheatle, a truly gifted storyteller'
Kemosha and her brother have lived their whole lives in slavery. Sold away to work in lawless Port Royal, Kemosha takes her chance to escape brutal treatment. With fortune on her side, Kemosha befriends Ravenhide, a man with a mysterious past who teaches her the art of swordfighting, and introduces her to the beautiful runaway Isabella.
Yet Kemosha's greatest test yet is upon the deck of the Satisfaction: the notorious Captain Morgan’s ship. His next adventure on the high seas could be the making of Kemosha – and her one chance to earn enough pieces of eight to buy the freedom of her brother...
"[A] stunning historical adventure … Wheatle has a big heart, an easy style and natural empathy"
The Times, Children's Book of the Week
"A thrilling high seas adventure… Kemosha’s indomitable spirit, determination and wit make for an unforgettable heroine"
"There's pirates, cut-throats and swashbuckling action, but the star turn is the fierce and unforgettable heroine in pursuit of her freedom and the girl she loves"
The Bookseller, Editor's Choice
"Alex paints a vivid character in Kemosha, a stubborn and strong willed slave who refuses to accept defeat at every corner. It is a story about courage, determination, and never giving up... I was rooting for her from the first page to the very end"
