Crackskull Jack is a fearsome pirate with a serious problem: one big fear of birds!

Without a parrot, Jack is in danger of being ridiculed rather than feared, a fate no self-respecting pirate wants for himself. Deciding to find a cure for his terrifying fear, Jack sails to the Cove of Paradise to seek out a reputed healer who can help him regain the respect of his crew. When Jack meets the mysterious Penny Darkling, mystical healer, he soon discovers she is a woman not to be messed with!

Join Crackskull Jack on his quest to cure his crippling ornithophobia, and uncover what lies ahead when the fearsome pirate finally meets his match.
