    Sincere thanks to NetGalley and the publishers for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed the magic and mystery that was this book. The story was well developed and well thought out. Each character just added to the brilliance of the story and I appreciated this very much.

    Timothy is an orphan who’s stuck at nasty orphanage. But on his way to discover his family history leads to Timothy’s life get changed upside down. A map leads him on quest to reveal the truth of his past. All including magic,Pirates. Yes pirates.

    I would recommend this to readers of Harry Potter and Keeps of lost cities.


    Thank you to netgalley and Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), Members' Titles for sending me a advanced reader copy.
