In Atlantic Fury, New York Times bestselling author Innes Hammond brings to life a brutal, unforgiving world of pirates and privateers, where the might of England and Spain clash in a bloody naval war.

For sixteen years, the British Royal Navy has been raiding Spanish shipping in the Caribbean, seizing valuable treasure and slaves. Now the Spanish are ready to retaliate.

Enter John Silver, a daring young buccaneer with a thirst for blood and a taste for the ladies. Silver has his sights set on the biggest prize of all - the great Spanish treasure fleet.

With the help of a ragtag crew of pirates, Silver sets sail for the Caribbean in search of glory. But the Spanish are not about to let him go unchallenged.

As Silver and his men battle the Spanish Navy, they must also contend with treacherous merchants, deadly storms, and their own greed - as they race to become the most notorious pirates in history.
