Crossbones: Episode 1 was a very good read. It follows Dean and his brother Eldric. Without giving the story away, they have more than initially meets the eye. The plot has them outsmarting captors and finding their way into a city to confront a pirate lord.
The story is short and can be read in one or two sittings, leaving you wanting more. The author said the stories will be episodic and short.
Personally, I look forward to more books from the author. Asof this writing there currently are not more, and this debut book is free. I highly recommend it.
