  • "Shipwrecked during a weekend pleasure cruise, gentleman scholar Humphrey Van Weyden thinks his mysterious rescuers have saved his life. He's wrong. Van Weyden's trapped abroad the Ghost--a seal-hunting schooner crewed by the most desperate, brutal outcasts of the Pacific. Ghost's evil captain, Wolf Larsen--The Sea-Wolf--is murderous tyrant who uses his superhuman strength to torture and destroy, his brilliant mind to invent sick games, and his relentless will to control his mutinous crew. Each new day bring Van Weyden pain he'd never imagined. Escape is impossible. On deck flooded with the blood of the seal slaughter, he must battle a savage genius not just for his life--but for the last tattered shreds of his own soul. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied."@en
  • "The Sea-Wolf is the gripping tale of Humphrey Van Weyden who is ship-wrecked after embarking on what was meant to be a pleasure cruise. When he is picked up by a passing ship, he initially believes he has been rescued by kind saviours. But Humphrey soon finds out that he has in fact boarded the Ghost'a seal-hunting ship captained by the terrifying and twisted Wolf Larsen, known by his crew as the Sea-Wolf.
