Pirata: The bestselling author of The Eagles of the Empire novels brings the pirate-infested Roman seas to life…

It is AD 25. Pirate ships strike terror in the hearts of those who brave the seas of the Roman Empire.

When young Telemachus gets the chance to join the crew of the merchant ship Selene, he’s delighted to escape the rough streets of Piraeus. He knows little of the dangers of life at sea. And even past hardship has not prepared him for the terror on board when a pirate ship appears on the horizon . . .

The fight is bloody, but the result is never in doubt. Then the victorious pirate chief, Bulla, offers the beaten men a cruel choice: join us, or die. After surviving a brutal initiation rite, Telemachus impresses his new captain with his resourcefulness and strength, and swiftly rises through the pirate ranks. But dangerous rivals talk of mutiny and murder. While Prefect Canis, notorious commander of the imperial fleet, will stop at nothing to take control of the Adriaticum from the pirate brotherhood.

Could Telemachus be the man to lead the pirate brotherhood and challenge Rome?

PIRATA is also available in five ebook novella parts.
