Learn about the Barbary Pirates with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. For 350 years, from the late 15th century onwards, Europeans travelling by boat in the Mediterranean Sea were under constant threat of pirate attack. But these were not pirates as normally understood; rather, they were Muslim warriors officially sanctioned to plunder ships from Christian countries to kill or enslave anyone they found aboard. The pirates came from the North African port cities of Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli and Sale, known collectively as the Barbary States. Although these cities were officially part of the Ottoman Empire, they enjoyed considerable autonomy and lived mainly from the proceeds of piracy. The ships of the Barbary corsairs, as the pirates were known, were usually owned by the local ruler, or ´´pasha”, who granted the captain of each ship license to engage in piracy against ships from non-Muslim countries. Local merchants would also invest in corsair ships, which could be a source of handsome profits.

The air pirate Andan Cly is going straight. Well, straighter. Although he’s happy to run alcohol guns wherever the money’s good, he doesn’t think the world needs more sap, or its increasingly ugly side-effects. But becoming legit is easier said than done, and Cly’s first legal gig - a supply run for the Seattle Underground - will be paid for by sap money. New Orleans is not Cly’s first pick for a shopping run. He loved the Big Easy once, back when he also loved a beautiful mixed-race prostitute named Josephine Early - but that was a decade ago, and he hasn’t looked back since. Jo’s still thinking about him, though, or so he learns when he gets a telegram about a peculiar piloting job. It’s a chance to complete two lucrative jobs at once, one he can’t refuse. He sends his old paramour a note and heads for New Orleans, with no idea of what he’s in for - or what she wants him to fly. But he won’t be flying. Not exactly. Hidden at the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain lurks an astonishing war machine, an immense submersible called the Ganymede. This prototype could end the war, if only anyone had the faintest idea of how to operate it…. If only they could sneak it past the Southern forces at the mouth of the Mississippi River…. If only it hadn’t killed most of the men who’d ever set foot inside it. But it’s those ´´if onlys” that will decide whether Cly and his crew will end up in the history books, or at the bottom of the ocean. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edoardo Ballerini.

One day Tess was the crown princess of Costenopolie, and the next she discovered she was a beggar´s child, reared as a decoy to keep the real princess safe from assassins. But Tess´ flair for politics, self-defense, and shopping--and her recently discovered magical powers--thwarted the kingdom´s enemies and restored the real princess to the throne. Now she dons an ambassador´s robe to help Costenopolie put its best foot forward--and to keep the newly crowned queen from tripping over her own... Assigned to chaperone Queen Contessa and her new husband on their honeymoon voyage, Tess spends more time playing referee between the temperamental pair. Before another battle royal can erupt, a storm forces the ship to drop anchor where another vessel is similarly stranded--and Tess finds her heart stranded between a roguish cardsharp and a disturbingly attractive army captain. But Tess´ potential suitors are the least of her worries. The crew of the neighboring anchored ship reveal themselves to be pirates and abduct the royal couple for ransom--unaware that Tess´ magic is the real treasure in their midst... 1. Language: English.
