Lady Genevieve “Genna” Tosetti never met an adventure story she didn’t love. Until now.
One week after escaping the violent rise of the Terrian Empire, witnessing the murder of her father, being betrayed by those closest to her, and abandoning her friends to escape to sea, Genna finds herself adrift on the ocean with two unconventional companions – Samira, her childhood bodyguard, and Cassia, a street thug with no love for the nobility. Without servants, wealth, or a plan, Genna is left wondering how all her years of political training could leave her feeling so useless.
When pirates attack her ship and maroon her on a deserted island, Genna and her two companions must figure out how to endure their current circumstances, overcome past traumas, and put up with each other if they want to survive.
Immediately following the extraordinary events of The Golden Fleece (Book One in The Varas Stones trilogy) The Pirate Queens is a raucous adventure that explores what happens when the story you live isn’t going the way you planned and the person you’ve become isn’t the one you always wanted to be.
In Chapter Six: The Rumble in the Jungle, Kellyn recalls a sailor's lullaby that his mother used to sing to him when he was young. The music and lyrics are below...
Sweeter Things Lyrics:
Just rest your eyes, my little one.
The hardship of the day is done.
Now you must dream of sweeter things,
like those I’ve dreamed for you.
And I will guard you while you sleep,
and keep you from the deepest deep.
You soar on sailor’s wings
of brightest blue.
For you know that I will always hold you
in arms both safe and calm.
And with me you need never fear
And one day when you’re strong and tall,
you won’t need me to be here at all.
But I will always be with you,
no matter where you sail.
For like the seas and like the skies,
you’ll see me there when you open your eyes.
Now sleep, and dream of sweeter things
Just sleep. We’ll dream of sweeter things
