1718: Puppeteer John Chandagnac has set sail for Jamaica to recover his stolen inheritance, when his ship is seized by pirates. Offered the choice to join the crew, or be killed where he stands, he decides that a pirate's life is better than none at all.

Now known as Jack Shandy, this apprentice buccaneer soon learns to handle a mainsail and wield a cutlass - only to discover he is now a subject of a Caribbean pirate empire ruled by one Edward Thatch, better known as Blackbeard.

A practitioner of voodoo, Blackbeard is building an army of the living and the dead, to voyage together to search for the ultimate prize: the legendary Fountain of Youth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A dark, delicious flow of strangeness... On Stranger Tides reminds me why I came to love reading in the first place * Orson Scott Card *
Tim Powers is a brilliant writer * William Gibson *
Tim Powers has long been one of my absolutely favourite writers * Peter Straub *
The reigning king of adult historical fantasy * Kirkus *
The best fantasy writer to appear in decades * The Guardian *
If you've ever woken half way through a fabulous dream and desperately wanted to know what would have happened next: relax. Those unfinished stories go to Tim Powers, and he's good enough to write them down for all of us * Nick Harkaway *
