The Pirates of Perilous(2015)
(The ninth book in the Castle Perilous series)
A novel by John DeChancie
The long-awaited 9th book in the beloved CASTLE PERILOUS fantasy series. Castle Perilous is a dangerous place to live. But some of its Guests are danger addicts. It's been years since Gene Ferraro, champion swordsman, has had a real adventure. He finds a swashbuckling world of pirates and manages to have a rousing time battling zombies, vampires, and an evil empire or two. Linda Barclay, resident Castle mage, reluctantly accompanies him but finds more romance than she ever expected. Meanwhile, back at the Castle, its magic goes awry (what again? - that trick never works!) and Lord Incarnadine decides to fix it once and for all. To do so, he has to violate the laws of... not just the Universe, but the Multiverse. Cleve Dalton, mild-mannered retiree, finds himself a pawn in a game of dragons. There's more, much more, in the latest adventure set in the castle with 144,000 doorways to other worlds - CASTLE PERILOUS.
