Reunited once more, the crew of Baal's Heart must make the long and treacherous journey south to the towering spires of the Devil's Isles. The path through the mountain range is fraught with peril; mayhem and tragedy plague the pirate ship, but what the men find beyond the spires is the most shocking of all.
In this sequel to the acclaimed Caged, the pirates are dragged into a dangerous new world by Captain Baltsaros's all-consuming obsession. In the midst of terror and chaos, Jon learns that the captain and first mate have been keeping secrets from him. But will the truth tear them apart?

About the Author
Artist, Writer, Dog Lover - http://www.beydeckard.com
Canadian indie author Bey Deckard wanted to be many things when he grew up: veterinarian, vampire, paleontologist, crane operator, sniper, ophthalmologist, brain surgeon, marine biologist, lawyer, forensic anthropologist, set designer, underwater archaeologist, mortician, rock star, philanthropist... but writer was not on the list. Artist wasn't there either because he'd been drawing and paintings since he was a tot and figured that made him one already.
Freelance graphic design paid the bills while Bey levelled up with a BFA in Art History (minor in Anthro). However, he landed in the tech world where the degree was worth FA, and stayed there for over a decade before leaving, thoroughly sick of working for The Man. That's when the writing started, and Bey still can't believe it wasn't on that list above because he absolutely loves doing it and can't really imagine doing anything else.
Bey's books aren't quite romance and aren't quite erotica, and they jump from genre to genre, but they're all character driven and he likes to think they're interesting.
These days, if Bey's not writing or working on graphics, you'll find him posting pics of his best buddy and constant canine companion Murphy, cooking up some tasty vegetarian eats, hanging out on facebook, or sitting back to watch a movie with a drink (or many).
As a reader, Bey's usual staples are biographical works, medical research papers, all sorts of history books (nautical, medieval, and medical being his favourites), science fiction, fantasy, horror, KGB/CIA thrillers, and graphic novels.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I can't get enough of these pirates! I was in love with book one, but now I’m in love with the entire series. Though Sacrificed is a pirate adventure, its underlying current is the love affair between John, Tom, and Captain Baltsaros. ‘Three hearts melding together as one.’ It’s their dream, but first they must mend old wounds. The novel begins with a fallout between Tom and Captain Baltsaros, and John is caught in the middle. Through a series of present and past scenes, the men move closer to working out their differences and closer to one another. Though the road to reconciliation is far from easy, they come to an acceptable arrangement. Meanwhile their ship travels into dangerous waters. They endure one hardship after another, and after capturing three foreign fishermen, the captain leads them on an adventure into a hostile land. In addition to strict laws against same sex coupling, the land is dripping with the blood of slaves and human sacrifice. John doesn’t understand why the captain would go there, but he soon learns a secret about the captain that threatens to break the trio apart. John wants to escape his pain, but when sinister forces envelop them, none can be sure they’ll make it out alive. I was so happy to once again find myself immersed in the world of Bey Deckard’s pirates. My only complaint is that there’s only one more book left! Where the first book focused on the relationship between John and Captain Baltsaros, Sacrificed delves deep into Tom’s past and present psyche. Once a slave, but freed by Baltsaros, Tom is a dangerous but alluring man—submissive with men but flirtatious with women. Tom is so strong, yet so damaged. I love seeing him grow and how he discovers new sides of himself while loving John. I was routing for them all to get together, but I must admit that the captain’s demons are extremely frightening. Though the erotica was spectacular, and there are moments that will forever be engrained in my mind, the depth of the characters is what made this book extraordinary. I highly recommend Sacrificed to anyone who loves gay erotica, polyamory, and action packed pirate adventures. Reviewed for Love Bytes
