Stay on the path of righteousness my father said to me. He said I was to be the beacon of light for the world to see God but I've become a pirate bastard.
Richmond, Texas (PRWEB) November 08, 2016
What happens when a young man ignores a direct command from God to abandon his father?
Author Larry B. Litton Jr. answers this question and many more in Vann Gellis – the Birth of a Pirate. The book is available at Amazon for immediate download for $9.99. The Birth of a Pirate is the first installment in the long awaited series, Vann Gellis, Pirate of the Gods.
The Pirate of the God series chronicles the epic journey of Vann Gellis, the Christian boy turned pirate.
"This is more than your traditional pirate story," Author Larry Litton says. "This is a story about how key decisions Vann make's in the quest to save his father change him and shows him that a man really is the sum of his choices."
17th Century Nassau is a haven for pirates. The local British government enables and even encourages piracy and profiteering. Samuel Gellis is one of the only pious men to be found on Nassau. He has been wrongfully imprisoned by the corrupt officer of the Admiralty Jonathon Anvil. Vann must find a way to raise the money necessary to free his father. But Vann has a special gift that his father believes was bestowed upon him by God.
“Stay on the Path of righteousness,” my father said to me. “He said I was to be the beacon of light for the world to see God through me, but I’ve become a pirate bastard.”
Vann does stray. He joins the crew of the Wicked Night, the most brutal pirate ship known in the Caribbean captained by Alain Masterson, the most savage pirate to have ever sailed. Vann uses his gift to discover that a massive Aztec treasure has been found by the Spanish navy. Vann kidnaps a hostage held by Masterson who knows where the treasure is being held and takes to sea in a longboat. He’s captured by another pirate ship captained by the beautiful Jean Valdemere. They quickly find something in common - their love for each other - and they go together to seek the treasure. But before they can get there, they happen upon Ezra the Holik, a seer from the Obedeah tribe who has been sent by God to stop Vann. But Vann is determined to save his father and not even God can dissuade him from his mission. But when he finds his father, he’s confronted with an epic decision that could impact the future of all mankind.
