Marcus Palliser has created a maverick who faces a choice – piracy or honest trade? In To the Bitter End, Matthew Loftus has come a long way since his humble beginnings. Now a successful fur trader sailing the Newfoundland coast, he wants to put his skirmishes with privateers and pirates behind him. However when the English Navy, his old adversary, sails into the colony of Esperantia and puts the small community under its protection, Matthew is forced by them to sail a perilous rescue mission to the icy reaches of Hudson's Bay. But he discovers another agenda lies behind his journey - to foil the ambitions of the French.
