Thrills, intrigues, mystery and piracy all set in Tudor England and featuring a young man named Will Shakespeare. "I’d give anything for a good horse right now..." says young Will Shakespeare.
When Will gets mixed up in poaching, his father sends him away from Stratford in a band of travelling actors. On the outskirts of London, a fierce storm forces them to take refuge at the house of Doctor Dee – Queen Elizabeth I's astrologer. While there, they get caught up in a plot involving piracy, "magic" and the secret of the "Devil's Fire".
