The Fetcher's Scar
written by John Palfery-Smith
(Fantasy novel, Complete, 2017)
Two interweaving stories are set against the backdrop of a fantastical Age of Sail. In one, a crooked lawyer searches for his estranged brother in the most corrupt city in the world. In the other, an inexperienced junior officer is thrust into command of a light naval squadron and ordered into the jungles. Life is about to change forever for Emeray and Anise. Worlds will collide and ancient secrets be unearthed in this epic gunpowder-fantasy adventure.
