The Island is a short fiction work and is the second story set in Derek Gunn's The HMS Swift Adventures, continuing the adventures of Captain Thomas Butler and his crew aboard the frigate HMS Swift.
The year is 1791 and Captain Thomas Butler and his loyal crew of The HMS Swift, a frigate in the service of King George III Of England, are sent on missions where nothing is what it seems, and forces far darker than any of them have experienced before, reign supreme.
These chronicles of the HMS Swift are set against the historical backdrop of the fragile peace that existed between the American Revolution, the looming French Revolution and the threat of Napoleon's growing empire...as the crew faces a horde of blood sucking vampires.
