Peter Blood is a physician and an English gentleman who becomes a pirate out of a rankling sense of injustice. Barely escaping the gallows after his arrest for treating wounded rebels who were fighting the oppressive King James, Blood flees England and becomes enslaved on a Barbados plantation of buccaneers. When he escapes, no ship sailing the Spanish Main is safe from Blood and his companions. Abounding with adventure, color, romance, and strong social commentary on the evils of slavery and the dangers of intolerance, this classic adventure is a story about how oppression drives men to desperate actions, how fate plays a hand in everyone's life, and how love is ultimately the greatest power of all.

"Captain Blood is a modern adaptation of Rafael Sabatini's 1922 swashbuckling classic about pirates, romance and a man fighting against injustice. Dr. Peter Blood is convicted of treason for tending to the wounds of a rebel during a rebellion against King James II. Sentenced to a life of slavery in Barbados, Blood falls in love with the brutal plantation owner's niece, Arabella. Like Blood, Arabella suffers under her uncle's wrath, and the pair plan to escape the island and start a new life together. However, when a band of pirates suddenly attacks Barbados, Blood is faced with an impossible choice: escape to freedom and risk losing Arabella, or stay with Arabella but remain a slave. Reluctantly, Blood chooses to escape and becomes one of the most feared pirates in the Caribbean, not knowing that fate will take him back to the plantation and the woman he left behind. Captain Blood is a story of love, regret and, ultimately, redemption."--

The Romulan Empire is in disarray after the destructive leadership of the Reman Shinzon, and Ambassador Spock launches a bold attempt to reunify the Romulans with their distant forbears, the Vulcans. But when Spock is publicly assassinated at a Romulan peace rally, Starfleet and the Federation are unable to search for the criminals responsible without triggering an intergalactic war. Thus it falls to James T. Kirk to investigate the death of his beloved friend. Given covert assistance by Captains Jean-Luc Picard on the newly-refitted Enterprise and Will Riker on the Argo, Kirk travels to Romulus as a civilian, accompanied by his eight-year-old son Joseph and the cantankerous Dr McCoy. There he discovers an alluring enemy from his past and discovers that Spock's apparent murder hides a deeper mystery, one that reaches back in time to the very origins of life on Earth. Trapped on a deadly, alien world on the eve of a civil war that could plunge the galaxy into a civilization-ending conflict, Kirk's investigation brings him at last to a hidden Reman fortress. There he uncovers the true threat facing the Romulans, and learns that for peace to prevail he must sacrifice his son, whose blood holds a staggering secret...
