Overview
For Rey, a young pirate, being on the run is a natural condition. When the "Vision Quest's" crew votes him off the ship to undertake Captain Trench's latest mission, he's not surprised. He's never been regarded as one of them. Set ashore near Havana in 1766, Rey ventures into San Cristbal de La Habana, finding it afire with raucous music, dancing, and drunkenness. A temporarily free soul between the worlds of land and sea, Rey gets caught up in the yearly African carnival of Epiphany-All Demons' Day. In a drunken stupor, Rey is stripped of his contraband by thieves. While obsessing over the loss of Mr. Trench's goods, he is taken in by a street girl, Epifania. Dodging demons of her own, Epifania protects Rey, but she also plunges him into the island's merciless colonial politics and slave economy. Rey and Epifania become wanted by both pirates and politicians, dodging each group by continually moving from one hovel to the next. "All Demons' Day," richly seasoned with historical facts, is filled with intrigue, adventure, and suspense. If you're expecting a pirate story with codes of honor, betrayal, corruption, and the compelling mysteries of Caribbean witchcraft, you won't be disappointed.
