The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates
The Terror of the Southlands (Magic Ahoy!)
The swashbuckling sequel to MAGIC MARKS THE SPOT in the THE VERY NEARLY HONORABLE LEAGUE OF PIRATES series!
Hilary Westfield is a pirate at last, but life on the High Seas isn’t quite what she’d expected it to be. It’s been months since she’s sailed off on a thrilling adventure or found a hidden stash of magical treasure. Even the captain of the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates is beginning to wonder if Hilary is truly worthy of her league membership card. When the kingdom’s Enchantress is captured by a mysterious band of villains calling themselves the Mutineers, Hilary knows this is the adventure she’s been waiting for: She’ll rescue the Enchantress, trounce the Mutineers, and prove her bravery to the pirate league.
With her friends Claire and Charlie by her side and her trusty gargoyle in tow, Hilary soon finds herself pursued by pesky inspectors, singed by magical explosions, threatened by scallywags, and (worst of all) forced to wear a ball gown. But even a sharp cutlass and a pocket full of magic coins can’t help Hilary escape the Mutineers’ threats against her friends. When she learns that the plot against the Enchantress is only a small part of a larger threat to the kingdom’s magic, Hilary has to decide what it means to be a true pirate—and whether a true pirate is brave enough to walk away from everything she’s worked so hard to prove.
