There are three types of people in the Exosian Realm—males, females, and pirates.
I’m a pirate. One with six overprotective fathers for a crew. And if I’m telling the honest truth, not just the pirate truth, having so many fathers is working pretty well for me so far.
When I’m caught eavesdropping on the pirates of Malice, they retaliate with violence, and my fathers become set on revenge. But simple payback cascades into shattering misfortune.
Unexplainable magical happenings and impossible creatures propel me toward a fate much darker than stealing plunder.
