The Iron Hand

David Renklint

I knew of Captain Ironhand. Everyone knew who the ruthless captain with the iron hand and iron mask was. But what I didn’t know was that he was looking for the dagger I was carrying in my bag.

Embla is witness to a fight between two pirate ships and when the gunpowder smoke has cleared, she finds what the pirates have been fighting over: a chest has drifted ashore on the island where Embla lives. She expects to find a treasure, but inside the chest is only an old dagger. Legend has it that the dagger is cursed, and soon Embla has no choice but to follow the will of the dagger. Embla embarks on a quest to parts of the world she’s only ever heard tales about.

The Iron Hand is the first installment of an epic pirate fantasy trilogy, about a brave 11-year old girl who wants to be a pirate more than anything else. But aboard the pirate ship Misery with the ruthless and infamous Captain Ironhand, she realizes that you should be careful of what you wish for.

Familiar swashbuckling adventure with a ragtag pirate crew and sea shanties, mixed with magic, prophecies and curses, lots of curses!
