Loblolly

Cannons fire, splinters fly, and deep within the creaking hull of HMS Arcade, a scared boy waits.

David used to be a printing press assistant until he was snatched from the streets of Victorian England and press-ganged into service with the British Navy. Now a Loblolly Boy working in the ship's infirmary, his life consists of mopping blood-soaked floors, obeying the whims of his superiors and bearing witness to horrifying surgical procedures.

During a terrifying battle aboard his new home, he begins to suspect that Mr Slines - the ship's doctor - may not be whom he appears to be and stumbles across a discovery that requires the Admiral's urgent attention, if he can make it in time.
