Scarlet Minor and the Renegade (248 pages)
On the review of Scarlet Minor and the Renegade; Kirkus Reviews Magazine describes the book as “an opening volume with enough action and titillation to get readers invested in a much longer tale.”
“In Andam’s debut instalment of a new adventure series, a young man finds himself in danger from a band of murderous pirates looking to break themselves free of a curse. Scarlet Rosendale is primed to someday run the family inn—the Seafarers Nook in Buccaneers Bay—but he dreams of being a pirate like his great-grandfather Capt. Eyesinwealth. Scarlet’s ecstatic to finally receive, on his 17th birthday, Eyesinwealth’s scrolls, which contain his journal entries. The stories tell of a long time curse, ultimately passed down to Scarlet, that befell the captain and the crew of his ship, the Admiral Bonior, later named the Renegade,” the review reads.
Scarlet Minor and the Twin Pikes of Nebo (274 pages)
Kirkus Reviews Magazine reviews the second book of Scarlet Minor Chronicles, “In the second of Andam’s (Scarlet Minor and the Renegade, 2015, etc.) adventure series, young Scarlet searches for a way to free himself of a curse while evading a murderous pirate captain.
It’s Scarlet Rosendale’s destiny to bear the Curse of Bodiaka, passed down to him by his pirate great-grandfather. But the curse has likewise affected nefarious Capt. Stonecold Ambioca and his crew of the Renegade, now a part of the Living Undead. Ambioca relentlessly pursues Scarlet, convinced that his blood can rid the captain, et al., of the curse.”
