Castaways of the Flying Dutchman is a Supernatural Adventure series penned by Redwall creator Brian Jacques.
The series,a three-book trilogy, is made up of three titles: Castaways of the Flying Dutchman, The Angel's Command, and Voyage of Slaves. In a major departure from his Redwall books, Jacques uses human characters and viewpoints in addition to deliberately religious overtones.
Book One begins in 17th-century Denmark, at a typical port city. The Hero, as yet unnamed, is being chased by his stepbrothers, who intend to lock him in their father's cellar.
