Galley Sergeant, by Peter Glassborow

225b429d-9b77-4935-a725-2148ba99d096

Thousands of years ago a terrible war rages for decades between a city state and a coalition of five nations. The city’s army frequently defeats its enemies in land battles. However, the city’s navy is struggling against a naval blockade.

Philip was born the son of a farmer, but being a soldier brings him the adventure he craves. Leaving his family and farm he enlists as a marine on a fighting galley. Pitched into terrible sea battles he can die from drowning as easily as he can from an enemy sword.

Philip is captured and shackled to a rower’s bench on an enemy galley. Rowing until exhausted is what he must do to stay alive.

A slave revolt might be Philip’s only chance to regain his freedom-but will his family want him back after all the years away?
