England, 1713—The Golden Age of Piracy.
Charlie Drake boards the heavily-armed British fighting ship, the Churchill, on the morning after his sixteenth birthday in possession of a mysterious three-lock box left to him by his father. The contents of the box could change Charlie’s life forever, but there’s a catch—the box is booby-trapped, and he doesn’t have the keys
Aboard the Churchill, young Charlie must earn the respect of a skeptical captain and a disreputable crew who will do anything for a single gold coin while searching for clues to unlock his destiny. In this coming-of-age tale, Charlie will fight enemies of the Crown, visit exotic locales, and make allies of fearsome pirates while proving that he is worthy of his father’s legacy. His first order of business: Don’t get killed trying.
