Viceroy Rodriguez orders a squadron of his best pirates hunters after Isabella and Jean-Michel, determined to rid the Caribbean of his pirate nemesis. The determined Captain Munoz chases The Pirate of Panther Bay and her crew into Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where they sit in blockade to prevent their escape.


On land, Isabella finds herself in the midst of a bubbling revolution among Port-au-Prince's free blacks in the tense years leading up to the western hemisphere's only successful slave revolt. Will she join the revolution and free her sisters and brethren? Or will she stay committed Jean-Michel and her piratical ways?
