She returns-ghostly, white-a phantom ship lost and wandering, cursed on an eternal voyage, never to find rest. The Caribbean has not been kind to The Elissa, its once proud mast is scarcely more than a corpse hanging from the gallows; her once billowing sails now the tattered remnants of the past. But she has come at last.
It has been thirteen years since Elissa Lafayette has glimpsed the white sails of the ship she was named for. Thirteen years since the ship disappeared with her father abroad. Thirteen years since she has had the same reoccurring night terror of the island with the walking dead. Thirteen years since she saved the boy from the gallows. Thirteen years to the date, since her families good fortune changed.
Now her family's plantation on the brink of poverty and ruin, her father's ship has returned, bringing with her a strange tide which will forever change Elissa's destiny. A handsome Commodore enlists Elissa's help, with the promise of finding her father. Together they embark out on the Elissa, in search of answers, treasure, and revenge.
Gray mist is not all which surrounds the Island of the Dead. A legend so old and so sacred, that even the most gruesome of Pirates won't dare sail in the island's shallows for fear of what roams its mountainous inlands. Tales of disease, cannibalism, and the undead plague the island. But can Elissa brave her terrors to unlock the mystery of her father? And can the Commodore be trusted?
Remember, not all is what it seems on the Caribbean tide, and not everyone is who they appear to be abroad The Elissa.
