Vampires, necromancers and pirates... oh my! You'll find all of them and more crammed into this marvelous book. This was a fun adventure that is told by Captain John Wyndham. After looking for somewhere to live he finds a spot that he shares with the outspoken Ms. Shaharazad Haas. She a little much for his delicate sensibilities but the adventure that she offers him is one that he cannot pass up.
I loved going on this adventure with these two and watching them get in trouble at every turn. The only part that took away from it was that a great many of the characters seemed to have foul mouths. Don't worry, it would be beyond John to put those words in this book but we were repeatedly told that. At first it was funny but after awhile, it got a bit annoying. All in all I am hoping to see another adventure in future.
