Ferris wakes on the Sea Queen, an enchanted cruise ship sailing on a chocolate sea. He has no idea how he got here, but he desperately wants to go home to his boyfriend.

The alchemist is the only person who can help Ferris, but he’s been kidnapped. The ransom is high tea with scones and jam.

Meanwhile, the passengers are gearing up for the Winter Masquerade, a ball where love and magic reign.

With a murderous musician, an absent boyfriend, and a mystical party, Ferris soon learns that Wednesday is not the day to fall in love.



Never could I imagine what a tremendous story was hidden behind the title and cover.
I was flabbergasted, looking around the scenery I was just stunned.
Try to imagine a big cruise ship sailing on a chocolate ocean with a white-chocolate dolphin and a bright rainbow in the sky.
That’s exactly the place where Ferris landed from... he doesn’t know or remember.
It was a surrealistic world, a bit chaotic, all those different impressions and creatures. Ferris and my head swirled.

Ferris wants to go home where the ocean is of water. For that to happen, he has to find the Alchemist. Some people will help him, like Cole, Camilla, Olive, Molly, and more. It seems they want to help him, only first; something has to be solved.

It’s as two worlds are living parallel. Ferris’s own, and the world on board and the second one has two sides, a bright and a dark one. And every time Ferris talks about home and his boyfriend it seems the dark side takes over.

There is so much going on. Like people gain insight, and layers come down.
Ferris got a lot of questions from the people who wanted to help him. Questions with depth. Slowly, he understands what everything means.

Imaginary and real-life are colliding. The metaphor turns into reality.

An unbelievable good layered story about surviving and finding your inner strength. Sometimes life throws dirt at you and your vision gets indistinct. The way the author touches this content was breathtaking, just breathtaking. I was deeply touched by this story. I think every living soul can learn here.
What an excellently written story! At times I couldn’t read because of my blurred vision, all my emotions bubbling up.
Memorable pieces are passing by onboard; I was floored. The tart and witty comments here and there were exquisite. But the lessons learned from them were the most spectacular.

Deep bow!!

  1. Thank you so much for the lovely review.

  2. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having

    (2) If you want to stop having bad dreams.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.

  3. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
