Overview

Chris Fasolino teaches English and Art History at Plattsburgh State University in upstate New York. He lives on the shores of Lake Champlain, near the Adirondack Mountains, where he has enjoyed hiking and canoeing. He is a wine columnist, and he has written historical features, travel pieces, and serialized mystery stories for newspapers and magazines. He loves travel, and has visited the fort of Hongmao Cheng and the gardens of Danshui on Taiwan.

"a largely well-crafted tale of high-seas adventure. The characters are vivid and the action is not only relentless but also believable . . . a promising debut in the footsteps of Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester . . . "

Kirkus Reviews

Captain Bowman West of the Royal Navy loves the ocean, but he is weary of warfare. Now, he wants to be an explorer, sailing to the edge of the map and discovering new lands. Thanks to an old friend at the Admiralty, West is given command of a frigate known as the HMS Promise, and sent on a mission of exploration to the South China Sea. There, he hopes to find treasure which will allow him to buy the ship, giving him the freedom to chart his own course for future voyages. But the mission is full of peril. The fabled challenges of navigating these exotic waters-- including treacherous coral reefs and a blistering typhoon-- all confront West and his ship. Furthermore, this is the domain of pirates. Captain West finds that all his courage and resourcefulness will be needed upon this voyage of discovery.
