So begins the adventures as Lily initially struggles to survive in her new and dangerous environment but when the opportunity arises decides to find out what happened to her father who disappeared many years previously. Lots of action in this book - will have to look out for the sequels to find out what happens to Lily, or Cyg as she is known in her pirate world.
