First released in print form in September 2018, the Sea of Thieves: Athena’s Fortune novel offered fans new insight into the lives of the Companies, characters and creatures that flesh out the game’s pirate world. Set across two time periods, the story chronicles the adventures of both Ramsey, the mighty Pirate Lord who first discovered the Sea of Thieves, and Larinna, an ambitious young pirate seeking adventure somewhere beyond the edge of the map.

As Ramsey and the crew of the Magpie’s Wing struggle to tame a newfound pirate paradise filled with ancient relics, immense leviathans and mysterious merfolk, Larinna and her new friends battle skeletons and rival renegades in a bid to seek out a legendary treasure, hidden somewhere beneath the fabled Shores of Gold. Ramsey and Larinna will soon find their separate destinies are linked by a single strand of fate pulling them inexorably together...

Now even more players have a chance to experience these two entwined stories – this time as an unabridged audiobook over 10 hours in length, narrated by accomplished actor Toby Stephens and set to a soundscape of familiar Sea of Thieves music and audio ambiences. Toby is no stranger to ships, being best known for the brilliant leading role of Captain Flint in four seasons of the STARZ series Black Sails, and currently most recognisable for the leading role of Mr. Robinson in the Netflix/Legendary reboot of Lost in Space. His range of screen and theatre work is vast, and he has gained critical acclaim as an actor of distinction.
