I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

-Hell On Earth

When the Chthonians brought the primal gods to a truce at the end of their great war, part of the pact they forged was that the worst of the evil the gods had unleashed against each other and mankind would be forever banished.
But forever is a long time. And nothing can contain those determined to find a way back.

Hell hath no fury as a demon caged . . .

Deadmen tell their tales . . .

To catch evil, it takes evil . . .

Enter Devyl Bane an ancient dark warlord returned to the human realm as one of the most notorious pirates in the New World. A man of many secrets, Bane makes a pact with Thorn an immortal charged with securing the worst creations the ancient gods ever released into our world. Those powers have been imprisoned for eons behind enchanted gates . . . gates that are beginning to buckle. At Thorn s behest, Bane takes command of a crew of Deadmen and, together, they are humanity s last hope to restore the gates and return the damned to their hell realms.
But things are never so simple. And one of Bane s biggest problems is the ship they sail upon. For the Sea Witch isn t just a vessel, she s also a woman born of an ancient people he wronged and who in turn wronged him during a centuries long war between their two races a woman who is also sister to their primary target. Now Marcelina, the Sea Witch, must choose. Either she remains loyal to her evil sister and almost extinct race against Bane and his cause, and watches humanity fall, or she puts faith in an enemy who has already betrayed her. Her people over the totality of humanity let s hope Bane can sway her favor.

  1. Is this a new series or does it tie in with her other which I've never read? I LOVE the cover and if it's new, it's going on the wishlist. I just don't have the patience to read 20+ books to be able to read this one:) Great choice and I never tire of the cover.

    1. This is apparently the first of a new series but knowing Sherrilyn, it might tie in to the other books somehow.
