A young healer woman sets sail to kill her enemies and steal the heart of the prince her rival desires. She encounters deadrousers, cannibals and lunatics as she hunts for epic treasures and love. She finds out she can be everything she wants to be: a doctor and a healer of thieves, a lover and an impressively rich spirit aunt, but the price she has to pay will be paid in blood. Serenica Ingram is a brave witch in her twenties. She would do anything to be even better at healing. Mariana Kinley, a witch-hating witch and a ruthless businesswoman, doesn't like competition and drives Serenica out of her home. She joins the pirate crew of the necromancer, Captain Spade. The city of Neul that Serenica calls home is a hostile and degenerate place, ripe with rich merchants and homeless witches, but the mythical island of outlaws, Aja Vana, is even stranger. The western islands are populated by outcasts and Serenica would do anything to avoid them. Becoming a rich and respected pirate healer isn't easy, especially with both other witches and royals wanting Serenica dead. She has to sail to the ends of the known world just to get her stolen property back, and even harder will be to catch the eye of the Dreamer, the fair prince whom Kinley also desires, while fulfilling the promise to kill a king.

Such an intriguing story! Very unique and fascinating! I only saw a few pirate-themed books and some are set for male leads- but an MC that is a female? A healer and a brave character? Count me in! The synopsis piques your interest and reveals information you need to look forward to in the book aside from that! The first chapter is like an exciting door for a new world- an alternative universe where we ride the wildest seas that could ever be sailed across the world! I'll follow Serenica in her adventures! \(@^0^@)/ I'm excited about this book! definitely deserve five-star ratings!


This is the second book of this author which I'm reading. I've noticed a similarity between the author's way with the words. The author is really good at mixing up the real life circumstances in a simple and very effective manner with the novel. The world background is really great and it has no useless fan servicing. This is my type of novel. The story development is something I crave for. I like how greatly sketched out the characters are. Updating stability is frequent. This book has some really awesome characteristics. I can see this book's potential of getting popular. Best of luck in writing!


I really love the author’s style symple but yet well descriptive. i’Ve never read this kind of stories but I really liked it and I can’t wait to read more! Good job😍🙌💖


I am halfway through the novel and I must say this novel is a hidden gem. I love the character, the plot and the interactions. they are so well written with smooth pacing... keep going author 💟


Loved the story's background and setting as well as the characters I read. The author has a vivid imagination and has created a world for us to enjoy! Great Job!


Thought- provoking story! (thumbs up😉). I like where the story is going. Keep up the good work, well be waiting for more. I'll add this to my library.


Fantastic story, idea, and plot. I enjoyed reading what i have read so far and believe that others will definitely enjoy it as well. It was rather unique and your creativity is not to be looked down upon. The MC was a highlight for me through their situations and how everything was described. Keep up the good work.


IMO, THIS STORY IS VERY UNDERRATED!! Don't hesitate to come and read it, it's a very good story about pirates and witch. Very uncommon and refreshing on Webnovel after all the similar stories 😆😆 Author did a very good job in writing this, liking it very much


Truth be told I love pirate story. And you have done a great job. Every character is also well placed. .................. I love the story the way they are now. just try updated new chapter every day.


Very high quality writing, an original story, good MC, and action make this a great read for anyone. There's development visible instead of just weak to experienced for no reason. Its a good quality story and should be a solid pick


The descriptive words is great, it's enough to make me imagine the scene. I've always wanted to write about pirates but I'm lacking of knowledge, your book might be the inspiration of my chapter arcs about pirates. Due to its description, you already felt as a reader what setting are you in.


really good start and character's design. The world is vivid and it is easy to imagine, I added it in my librabry so I will check it so keep going it has great potential !


Wow... The storyline was quite fascinating, How the world was built, and witty conversation. the author knows where to go, and how the story will flow. Totally recommended! [img=recommend] Kudos to the author!


I have never understood why writers are supposed to feel bad about their own stories. I can confidently say that this is one of my favorite books - of all time, and that is something I value. The soft yet brave MC. The humor. The thrills. I love my own book to bits, and I am not ashamed to say it. This novel is my sole purpose in life, so rest assured, your comments and gifts are cherished. I will always reply as soon as possible.


This novel is captivating. I never really liked pirate stories as they always has a sense of prdicability to it, but this one surprised me. I’m waiting for more chapters!


Serenica is a witch! Literally a witch! She is a healer too! Ironoic right! Healer as well as the witch! The story line is quite smooth, once you start reading it, you won't know how you read ten chapters in a one try. The English, Grammer etc is very well. I don't have any issue with it. I can't tolerate a book with bad grammar! But not this one, it was smooth, really smooth. I don't know why there are not many readers. I mean if you love witches, you should give this book a try and trust me, You won't regret picking this book.


A heady mix of superb world building, vivid characters, pirates, and witchcraft! In the expert hands of this author, the story struts and swaggers along like the most audacious of pirates. The dialogue zings with energy, wit, and personality, and the whole thing is written with an assured lightness of touch. I have a very low tolerance for poor prose, and even less for uncompelling characters, so believe me when I say that this story deserves to be read by anyone who values quality writing. I'll be following this once pretty closely. *Highly* recommend!


The story flow***w! So fascinating! Me is hooked. More power! More updatessss pleaseeee! I love it I love it I love it I love it I love it I love it I love it I love it ✨✨✨✨✨ More more more WAHAHAHAHAHAHA


There are a very few things I love in most artistic concepts- few of them being pirates and healing! This book is very very interesting. I found the characters to be beautifully crafted and will definitely read all of it. Kudos to the author for coming up with this idea


Great start with some interesting characters! Good writing style and great premise. I look forward to seeing the future of this novel! Keep up the good work!
