Fifty-five years have passed since the disappearance of the famed pirate Captain Flynn Freeborn, and the golden age of piracy has become an age of peace. Airships soar the skies, and friendship flourishes between nations. In these days when all wars have been fought, Captain Acheron Zeal of the Royal Navy longs for glory, adventure and promotion; his mission, to hunt down a new pirate threat, seems a godsend–but his ocean-going vessel will be hard-pressed to capture his airborne adversary, the captain of the airship Eschaton. His task is further complicated when he meets the proud and beautiful Franceline Drake, who has good reason to despise Captain Zeal–for this enchanting young woman is the very pirate he has sworn to bring to justice.
His pursuit of Drake embroils them both in peril: the wrath of a sea-god, the machinations of an ancient dragon, the ruthless schemes of a corrupt and ambitious Prince … and the bumbling interference of a man claiming to be Flynn Freeborn himself, resurfaced in the world not a day older than when he disappeared.
