Struggling with single parenting and treated as a bit of a joke, Cisco isn't really in the Christmas spirit like everyone else. A fact that's made worse by the tendrils of the pirate's powers creeping back into our world and people beginning to die in bizarre ways.

With the help of a talking fox, an enchanted forest, a long-lost friend haunting his dreams, and some 80s video game consoles turned into weapons, Cisco must now convince his friends to once again help him save the day. Yet they quickly discover that being a ghostbusting hero is so much easier when you don't have school runs, parent evenings, and nativity plays to attend. And even in the middle of a supernatural battle, you always need to bring snacks and wipes...

Review quote

"Hanks packs his pulpy, energetic debut with gritty violence, snazzy super-science, and high-flying adventure." "A serious creative talent and all-round nice guy." "Buckle up and enjoy the ride!" "Hanks forces us to suspend reality, embrace the chaotic ride and revel in the fun-factor." "Rolls along at break-neck pace...like a novelisation of a hit movie you never saw." "Dan's page-turning second novel proves it's not always possible - or wise - to put aside childish things. A great read!" "Swashbucklers is literally a nostalgia-inducing, pop culture acid-trip where the hometown kids reunite as middle-aged Goonies" "it's an awesome formula for fun." "Swashbucklers brings all the magic of the 80's back to life, and delivers a fun, action-packed tale with heart." "Combines sci-fi and fantasy elements into an energetic cross-genre romp" "Swashbucklers is the sequel to all your favorite childhood adventures." "Hanks has done a lovely job at giving us a villian to hate and a lovable group of aging heroes to cheer on." "Hilarious and poignant, loved it!" "Stranger Things meets It meets The Goonies" "A heartfelt, wacky tale beginning a potential series for fans of Stephen King's IT (1986) and anyone who's wondered why there are so many unsupervised children in fantasy." "A fun romp, ideal for fans of the cultural references and humor of Ghostbusters and Ernest Cline's Ready Player One."

About Dan Hanks

Dan is a writer, editor, and vastly overqualified archaeologist who has lived everywhere from London to Hertfordshire to Manchester to Sydney, which explains the panic in his eyes anytime someone asks "where are you from?". Thankfully he is now settled in the rolling green hills of the Peak District with his human family and fluffy sidekicks Indy and Maverick, where he writes books, screenplays and comics.
