A quest to find a fabled pirate treasure, uncover a legendary lost colony, and solve the secrets of piracy’s Golden Age.

At the soaring height of the Golden Age of Piracy in the year 1717, a young boy takes to the high seas with a ragtag gang of marauders to seek his fortune. His mentor is none other than the infamous pirate lord Blackbeard, a cruel and cunning leader with ties to a priceless treasure that has been lost to time. But the boy saw the fortune with his own eyes – if only he can live long enough to tell the tale.

The Lost Colony of Roanoke disappeared without a trace. Search parties arrived to find over a hundred colonists missing with nothing but a single enigmatic word left etched behind. Dead-set on unraveling a nearly 500-year-old mystery, renowned archaeologist Nick LaBounty embarks on an ambitious quest to solve America’s first-ever missing persons' case. His search will take him to legendary Ocracoke Island, where Blackbeard met his grisly demise just offshore.

Facing two long-buried mysteries, both inextricably woven together by fate, Nick joins forces with his brother and Native American muse – alongside a salty old sailor – to follow a sparce trail of enigmatic clues and bring old secrets to light. Finding out what happened to the colonists will settle a mystery that has haunted historians for centuries... and it could lead him to a treasure for the ages.
