Voyage of the Damned

Catch the fantasy debut on everyone’s lips, simply put - Magical. Gay. Mystery. Cruise.




A mind-blowing murder mystery on a ship full of magical passengers. If Agatha Christie wrote fantasy, this would be it!

To mark the thousandth year of peace in the Empire of Concordia, the emperor's ship embarks upon a twelve-day voyage. Aboard are the heirs of the twelve provinces of Concordia, each graced with a unique magical ability known as a Blessing.

Except one: Ganymedes Piscero.

When a beloved heir is murdered, everyone is a suspect. Stuck at sea and surrounded by powerful people, odds of survival are slim. But as the bodies pile higher, Ganymedes must become the hero he was not born to be and unmask the killer before he ends up the next victim of their bloody crusade.

Praise for Voyage of the Damned

I burned through this in about two days. Absolutely bloody brilliant! Voyage of the Damned is clever and comedic, while also heartfelt and harrowing. I hope readers will come to enjoy Dee's escapades as much as I did

Frances White has crafted a brilliantly clever tale full of heart-warming characters, riveting twists and a gloriously conceived world. A poignant, quirky and utterly delightful read. I felt EVERYTHING while reading Voyage of the Damned.

An enchanting, bloody delight. Full of magic, laugh-out-loud humor, and so much murder

Gabi Burton, author of Sing Me To Sleep

Frances White’s VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED is a fiendishly compelling locked room mystery brimming with character and heart that blew me away! White’s protagonist Ganymedes Piscero is utterly endearing. His unique brand of humour, bravado, and vulnerability hits a bullseye in the feels. A delightful debut.

A.Y Chao, bestselling author of Shanghai Immortal

Voyage of the Damned is hilarious and full of heart. The twists and turns in this novel had be genuinely gasping with surprise. I had to pace myself as I really didn’t want it to end

A. S. Webb, author of Daughter of Chaos

I would take a bullet for Ganymedes Piscero and that is no exaggeration. VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED's endearingly quirky main character is the shining star of this magical, murderous, romantic romp through a fantasy world as colorful as it is captivating. Boundless imagination, sparkling prose—and a knack for the heartwarming moments as well as the hilarious—all combine to make Frances White a force to be reckoned with
