In the summer of 1808, in the early months of the Peninsular war, five prophecies of death were given to those aboard HMS Phantom. First, in the shadow of a burning cross. Second, amongst the reaper’s spoils. Third, in the jaws of the sea. Fourth, beneath a mountain’s tears. And fifth, when the man with the burning crown dooms his ship…
Captain Valentine did not care for fortunes or fate, but as his crew began to fall to each of the foretold deaths, it seemed that the crew of The Phantom had more than Napoleon’s fleet hunting them.
