A historical fantasy set in the exciting era of world exploration.
Phillipa's adventure begins when a mysterious bracelet is thrust onto her arm in the middle of the night, disturbing a perfectly good sleep. As soon as the thing tightens around her skin like a strangling snake, it proves to be a curse rather than a blessing. She must flee from the only home she has ever known.
Cats are reputed to have nine lives and Phillipa quickly discovers that she has many more lives than that - as long as she wears the creepy bracelet. And she needs all those extra lives as she is pursued by black-hearted villains, across a country and a vast ocean, enduring stormy seas, shipwrecks, pirates, traitors, vexing secrets, and even a bull named Lucifer.
