Details

The "elevator pitch" for the story:

The Grand Adventures of Pip Rogerschronicles the journey of a bold, feline youth throughout the exotic and diverse seas of Rijeka as she strives to become a Captain in the Council’s Navy. Face to face with an impending war, her militant attitude is checked by the good-natured captain of The Spirit of the Arrow, the ship that she works on.

Pip’s struggle to shape her future is guided by and, ultimately, entangled in the individual journeys of the unconventional crew under the command of the enthusiastic and tenacious Captain Crawford. In an unexpected turn of events, Pip and the crew find themselves on the front line of the anti-war effort. Confronted with a conflict between country, friendship, and inner-demons, Pip and the crew begin to realize that their actions will not only determine their futures but the fate of the war itself.
