Quintspinner: A Pirate’s Quest
by Dianne Greenlay
Series: Quintspinner, Book One
Genre: YA Fantasy/Historical
Even in the year 1717, one month, one week, or one day, can make all the difference in the world.
One month ago, Tess Willoughby was the daughter of a well-to-do physician in London, and she witnessed the murder of an old seer. Coming into possession of the dead woman’s odd ring – an ancient Spinner ring, known by the locals as the Ring of Prophesy, she was wrongly accused by her father of having stolen the ring.
Three weeks ago, by her father’s arrangement for the family, she became an unwilling passenger on a merchant ship bound for the pirate-infested waters of the Caribbean.
Two weeks ago, at her father’s insistence, she became forcibly betrothed to a man who she recognized as being the seer’s murderer – a man who covets her only for her ring.
One week ago, she met a sailor and experienced the thrill of being in love for the first time.
Two days ago, she realized that such a secret love would endanger them both, and, heart-broken, she was forced to choose her loyalty.
Yesterday, her fiancé betrayed her during a pirate attack and those she loved were slaughtered.
Today, she is plotting to save her own life and perhaps to take his in retribution. The ring is urging her to decide quickly…
Tomorrow will be too late.
A tale of pirates and treasure, love and betrayal, all bound together by a dash of ancient magic, QUINTSPINNER – A PIRATE’S QUEST is “the Rings meets Pirates of the Caribbean!” (Chapters reviewer)
