The Terror of the Southlands

HarperCollins Children’s Books (September 2014)

From 2013 New Voice pick Caroline Carlson comes a swashbuckling sequel in the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series. The Enchantress is missing-again! But this time it’s for real, so Hilary Westfield embarks on a quest to prove her pirate prowess by finding the Enchantress and sealing her own reputation as the Terror of the Southlands.

Hilary Westfield got her wish and now sails the seas as the Terror of the Southlands, but the Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates doesn’t think she’s acting very nearly piratical enough. Hilary needs to prove she’s as terrible as the Terror should be and is ready to set off with the crew of the Pigeon for adventure.

But when Miss Pimm is discovered missing and the Queen’s officers discovered incompetent, Hilary decides to find the missing Enchantress in order to protect the magic of the Augusta. With the help of first mate Charlie, finishing school friend Claire, and the always intrepid gargoyle, Hilary vows to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Caroline Carlson brings the unceasing wit, humor, and magic of the first Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates adventure in this epic sequel.
