Publisher's Summary

Long ago, at the height of the Golden Age of Piracy, the infamous pirate Ramsey and his shipmates sacrificed everything to embark on an impossible journey into the Sea of Thieves.

In the present day, Larinna, an ambitious stowaway determined to leave her mark on history, joins forces with a wild and adventurous captain seeking the greatest treasure ever buried.

Separated by time but united by their drive to uncover the secrets of the Sea of Thieves, both crews face tricks, traps, and malevolent creatures as they draw nearer to Athena's Fortune.

Take a deep breath and dive into an epic story based on Rare's thrilling shared-world adventure game Sea of Thieves, where aspiring pirates can set sail on exciting voyages. Discover the tales of famously fearsome pirates whose legends endure and whose plunder still lies buried, ready for the taking.

It’s perfect

I had a great time listening to this book. It finally answered what was in the “blood sea” as I wrongly used to call it. It also has good characters, voice acting, sound design, and overall writing

Everything I could want.

it uses the in game sounds to punctuate the story. It has answered several questions I had while playing through the game and giving me many many more that I'm hoping to solve as I sail the Sea of Thieves.

Wow

I can't believe how good this book was. I've never heard a book based off of a game that's just this great! The voice acting is spectacular too! The sound effects aren't cheesy. It's nearly perfect.

More! Give me more!

This is hands-down one of the best stories that connects a video game or pre-established lore to new facts and information which expands upon said lore.

I thoroughly loved every second of the present-day crew and how we the audience were learning things through the eyes of the main character Larinna. It was so much fun hearing why cannons can shoot pirates out of them, why pirates can die and come back to life and explaining and hearing the history of the different legendary chests and curses in the game.

It was equally as enjoyable hearing the origin story being told by the crew in the past and seeing how everything was tying together and establishing the current lore that we have learned to love by playing the game.

I cannot wait for the next book and I cannot wait to get all of the comics/graphic novels. This is an amazing community and the content keeps giving us so much more amazing lore.

The Lore SOT Superfans Beg For

If you love the game, you'll love the book. It's a back and forth duel prequel to the videogame, and it's quite satisfying to listen to; though, it would probably be quite confusing to an average reader if you haven't a clue what the Sea of Thieves are. Then again, I didn't go into it with no context, but perhaps if you did, there'd be enough provided to get the grasp? Either way, I enjoyed it. Far from my favorite book... but a dang good one nevertheless.
