Set the Seas on Fire

Set the Seas on Fire is a new fantasy release by Chris Roberson.

In the early 1800s, young Hieronymus Bonaventure is a Lieutenant aboard the HMS Fortitude. His ship encounters two extremely ill Spanish sailors, spouting danger about a nearby island. But as the HMS Fortitude is damaged, the crew must seek refuge on the closest island, and meanwhile try to uncover the truth from the Spaniards. The island on which the British crew arrives is a seemingly tropical paradise, complete with friendly natives. But when the British express interest in the volcanic island nearby, the natives warn them that the island is forbidden and dangerous, of supernatural proportions.

The story jumps back and forth between Hieronymus as a young boy, just beginning to learn swordplay, and as an officer aboard the Fortitude. From his early years, we learn about his excitement for adventure and what has shaped him into the man he is to become. Following Hieronymus’ adventures as a man, we’re treated to a swashbuckling good time. With action and suspense a plenty, Set the Seas on Fire is a wonderful adventure on the high seas. I didn’t even miss the absence of pirates.

Grab this new release from Solaris Books, Amazon, or bookstores across the US, UK, and Canada.

  1. Thanks 🙂 They sent you the first two? 🙁 They are only sending along the last three… they made me buy my own of the first two. 🙁

    But I’ll let you know. Thanks for the offer. 🙂

  2. Katie – Yeah, pub. asked if I wanted to read the first couple before reading the 3rd. I didn’t get the new covers, just the old Hatchett copies. But when I got them, I realized someone had already sent me the 2nd one. (I must have won it in a contest or something last year.) I would have sent them on to you if I would have known you had to buy them!
