Egg’s Cinderella-like (the servant part, not the princess part) life is changed overnight when his family disappears and he is taken in by the wealthy Mr. Pembroke. Egg thinks life in the Pembroke mansion is pretty sweet. Does he miss his family? Kinda. He doesn’t miss being the family servant at all. Doesn’t miss doing extra chores. Doesn’t miss getting spit on.

But when he discovers that Mr. Pembroke is up to something involving a map of his family’s plantation, Egg starts to suspect that there’s something fishy about the reason Mr. Pembroke suddenly wants to adopt him. And besides, he doesn’t want Millicent Pembroke to be his SISTER. He wants her to be his WIFE.

With the help of Guts, a one-handed cabin boy and Millicent, Egg sets sail on a small boat to return to Deadweather, the pirate-infested island that is home to the plantation and a small army of pirate field hands.
