It is 1796 and a diminutive, Corsican-born French general has inherited a ragtag army and turned it into an unstoppable fighting force. Within months, Napoleon's storm rolls across Italy and strikes a lethal blow against the Austrian empire.
But while the soil of Piedmont and Tuscany runs with blood, another battle takes shape on the mysterious Adriatic Sea. Alan Lewrie and his 18-gun sloop, HMS Jester, part of a squadron of four British warships, sail into the thick of it. But with England's alies failing, Napoleon busy rearranging the world map, and their squadron streched dangerously thin along the Croation coast, the British squadron commander strikes a devils bargain: enlisting the aid of Serbian pirates.
