PRLog - May 15, 2014 - BENFLEET, U.K. -- Travel back more than 350 years to the age of pirates and seafaring men in the sprawling adventure novel The Sea Dogs. In the 17th century, England’s future was dependent upon the sea. Merchant adventurers and shipping companies wanting to expand international trade found themselves constantly threatened by piracy.
The Sea Dogs
In this first novel by Ken Barnes, three seamen resign from the King’s Navy, two to seek their fortunes on the high seas, and the third to make his mark in London society. In the ensuing years, their paths cross in various ways as they run into feisty women, nefarious pirates, and historic events such as the Great Fire and the Black Plague. Experience the pleasures and the horrors of the period as the action moves from the London of Samuel Pepys, Drury Lane, and Tilbury Docks to the pirate infested waters of the Caribbean, to an uncharted island in the South Pacific, before returning to London for a stunning climax.
Swordplay, romance, intrigue, betrayal, and sea battles abound in this epic saga that takes you around the world during a fascinating period of history.
