You are invited on board the...




There will be magic...

... There will be murder.

The book cover of Voyage of the Damned.

For a thousand years, Concordia has maintained peace between its provinces. To mark this incredible feat, the emperor's ship embarks upon a twelve-day voyage to the sacred Goddess's Mountain.

Aboard are the heirs of the twelve provinces of Concordia, each graced with a unique and secret magical ability known as a Blessing. 

Except one: Ganymedes Piscero - class clown, slacker, and all-round disappointment. 

When a beloved heir is murdered, everyone is a suspect. Stuck at sea and surrounded by powerful people without a Blessing to protect him, odds of survival are slim. 

But as the bodies pile higher, Ganymedes must become the hero he was not born to be. Can he unmask the killer and their blessing before this bloody crusade reaches the shores of Concordia? 

Or will the empire as he knows it fall?

'Frances White has crafted a brilliantly clever tale full of heart-warming characters, riveting twists and a gloriously conceived world. A poignant, quirky and utterly delightful read. I felt EVERYTHING while reading Voyage of the Damned'

Bea Fitzgerald, bestselling author of 'Girl, Goddess, Queen'

'An enchanting, bloody delight. Full of magic, laugh-out-loud humor, and so much murder'

Gabi Burton, author of 
'Sing Me To Sleep'

'Burned through this in about two days. Absolutely bloody brilliant! Voyage of the Damned is clever and comedic, while also heartfelt and harrowing. I hope readers will come to enjoy Dee's escapades as much as I did'

Sunyi Dean, author of 'The Book Eaters'

'VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED is a fiendishly compelling locked room mystery brimming with character and heart that blew me away! White’s protagonist Ganymedes Piscero is utterly endearing. His unique brand of humour, bravado, and vulnerability hits a bullseye in the feels. A delightful debut.''

A.Y Chao, bestselling author of 'Shanghai Immortal'

‘This book reads like Agatha Christie took Gideon the Ninth out for a boat party and got it delirious on champagne and fairy floss. A wonderful, fantastical murder mystery told by a fabulously bitchy narrator.’

Freya Marske, author of The Last Binding Trilogy

'I would take a bullet for Ganymedes Piscero and that is no exaggeration. VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED's endearingly quirky main character is the shining star of this magical, murderous, romantic romp through a fantasy world as colorful as it is captivating. Boundless imagination, sparkling prose—and a knack for the heartwarming moments as well as the hilarious—all combine to make Frances White a force to be reckoned with.'

Thea Guanzon, USA Today, New York Times, and Sunday Times bestselling author of THE HURRICANE WARS
