Overview

As a boy, Hale Privet dreamed of sailing the grey waters of the northern Gantic Ocean aboard a mighty ship of war. But when farm life kept him from the sea, the sea came to him - in the form of Rye Blackbird, the infamous mutineer whose wondrous tales help set Hale on his own path to adventure. And such adventures they are! Villains, mysteries, sea battles and even a cursed island await.

Privet's story is part folklore and part fantasy, set in a long-ago time where you might just as easily witness something mystical, as feel the salty spray of the sea on your face. Fellengrey is a bedtime story for grown-ups, complete with pirates, ghosts, magic spells and, of course, a beautiful maiden to capture the dashing hero's heart. Author Scott Thomas lyrically creates a world that is visceral and treacherous, but also lovely and familiar.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Thomas’s debut imagines a magical 18th century in which intrepid mariners and piratical villains contend at sea. Destined by lore for a nautical life, Hale Privet learns from traveler Noll Slate, actually the infamous mutineer Rye Blackbird, that even villains can be good-hearted and decent. This lesson, which re-emerges in the climactic scene, infuses a moral aspect into the nonstop action: ghostly encounters, mysterious damsels in distress, a comedy of errors when the wrong woman drinks a love potion, an island of little people, and fanatic assassins. Sea-moths, rump whales, and intelligent rats provide a mythic feel, and sea battles have authentic grittiness, but the two elements never quite marry. Fans of classic fantasy will appreciate a world where decency—and, of course, romance—can prevail despite the machinations of evil and the abundance of clichés. (Dec.)
