In unknown space and in the middle of a war, military hero Pippa “The Angel of Death” Banks finds herself the second-in-command aboard the very pirate ship she was sent to destroy. With no clue where they are or what’s going on, she must navigate life aboard the Maggie Celeste without being killed by the vengeful outlaws or losing any more of her already decimated crew.

However, as they spend more time in this new region of space, the hostility from both sides of this war has her questioning if they are truly as foreign there as they originally thought, and just how they ended up there in the first place. She finds herself in the middle of a grim plot and she needs the help of her sworn enemy, the Pirate Captain Ethan Doe, to uncover it.

That is, if she doesn’t strangle him first.

Protagonist or Antagonist?: Protagonist

Name: Rheaos at Leigh

Age: 30

County of Origin: The Abyssal Plains

Occupation: Student/Prisoner

Loyalties: Friends and family

Goal: Freedom

Morals: Kinda shaky lately

Kidnapped as a child and imprisoned in Dr Bracken’s twisted zoo, Rheaos has always had a very narrow view of the mundane world. However when his worst enemy is forced back to the mansion they both call home and hell, Rheaos is forced to face the fact that he knows a lot less than he thought. As the feud between them puts Rheaos’ long bound away powers within his reach, he finds himself for the very first time with the promise of freedom more than a cruel dream. 

The only problem is that with his powers comes his natural instincts, and he’s starting to wonder if the humans are right when they call him a monster…
