Captain James Hook and the Siege of Neverland

 

...straight on till morning.
Captain James Hook set his sights on Peter Pan, chasing the boy to the ends of the Earth and beyond.
But Neverland is the hell no one thought it would be.
Suns rise and set at all hours. Bursts of snowfall punctuate blistering tropical heat without warning.
Yet among the knights, fairies, indians, mermaids, beasts, and savage children who fight and die here, a more dangerous predator stalks men in this world without order, one that cannot be fought with sword or hook.
A predator called the Forgetting.
How much of himself is Hook willing to lose to gain his revenge?

A Pirate's Tale: The Sea Fox

1678

Sailing into London's busy harbor in the autumn of 1678, Jon Norsturm was unaware of the city's uproar over the Papist Plot, the alleged scheme of the Pope to have the King murdered and turn Protestant England Catholic.

He could not foresee events arising from the turmoil that would tear him from his home and all he loved, brand him a fugitive, and force him into service as a seaman aboard a ship owned by the rich and ruthless Edmund Stanton. He could not foresee leading a mutiny, taking refuge on the pirate island of Tortuga, and becoming one of the boldest pirate captains of the Caribbean. And he could not foresee sailing at the bidding of Henry Morgan, among the worst pirates of all, in desperate hope of clearing his name and starting his life anew.

But of all that was to happen, he could never have foreseen falling in love with the beautiful and fiery Kath Ellis, who was Stanton's greatest desire and whose world, like Jon's, would be changed forever.

Plague Island

 

They called it the devils graveyard in paradise, an uncharted island where pirates disappeared to lick their wounds and plan further acts of piracy upon the high seas. Only a few knew of its location and those that found it by chance never left, staying as residents in an ever growing graveyard.

Paradise it was with plenty of fresh water and fruit to lure unsuspecting ships to stop and refresh their supplies but it harboured a deadly disease. It was not the plague as the island was named after, for that was long gone, it was another more deadly one called piracy.

The area became notorious for ships and crews to go missing without trace. All but the foolhardy ventured there but a reputed fortune in treasure hidden on the island was too big an opportunity to miss by greedy bounty hunters and other pirates.

But where was its location?
