The Pirate King has died and with no heir in sight, the Trials will begin.  In a bloody frenzy at Crossbones, crew loyalties will be tested and the prime captain will reign supreme.

Born and raised on the Iron Jewel, Kane Blackwater deserves the throne.  He believes his appearance at Crossbones could bring pirating back to what it used to be before their culture was torn apart by fear of a Navy whose sheer numbers could decimate everything they've built.  But his plans take a drastic turn when over half of his crew is slaughtered by creatures thought to be extinct.  Hardened and desperate, Kane returns to Port Barlow for the first time in years, searching for a girl from the past who might hold the key to getting him on the throne.  

But he isn't the only one fighting for their spot.  Csilla Abado, captain of the Scarlet Maiden has been preparing her all-female crew for the era of the Pirate Queen, and Flynn Gunnison will do whatever he can to make sure that doesn't happen.

It's every man or woman for themselves in the Trials.  In order to survive, they must remember the most important rule of all:

 Never trust a pirate.
