Publishers Description: Headhunters, sorcerers, pirates and Indian princes thrive in this action-packed, poetic tale of a young outcast in Borneo. Born in 1609, son of a native woman and a Dutch sea captain he never knew, Jaki Gefjon grows up in the jungle as a sorcerers apprentice. Later kidnapped by pirates, he befriends his captor, Trevor Pym, notorious for his dreaded man-of-war, Wyvern. The scientific marvels on the European privateer become the young soul-catchers passion--until he falls for Lucinda, the headstrong daughter of Pyms sworn enemy. Propelled by intrigue, pirates battles, curses and visions, this seafaring saga takes Lucinda and Jaki from the South Seas to India--and to a bold, unforeseen destiny in the New World.
