Reavers' Ransom

Lilly is out fishing with her sea-cat when the bloodthirsty Reavers come raiding – and kidnap the Prime Minister’s daughter. The Reavers did it, but the villagers are the ones who get the blame. Outraged, Lilly decides to get the stolen girl back. Off she sails in secret, with an extraordinary ransom – a talking jewel. But nothing in heaven or on earth can prepare her for what happens next… Set in a future devastated by global warming and ravaged by pirates, this stunning fantasy is a captivating read.
