"You don't know what this is, do ye? It's Aztec Gold . . ."
Who knew that what seemed an innocuous medallion might send people on a journey of epic proportions? Everyone is familiar with the tale that sends Captain Jack Sparrow searching to regain his ship, the Black Pearl that ends with his regaining it, that brings two unlikely but star-crossed lovers Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner together, and ends with the death of the Captain Jack's nemesis, Hector Barbossa.
But then again, if the dead could walk once, what keeps them from doing so again? And what are these stories of the Flying Dutchman captained by the mythical Davy Jones sailing the Spanish Main...it is mere superstition...isn't it?
But there is more than just debts to supernatural beings to deal with--Lord Cutler Beckett brings the East India Company to the West Indies, but it is not a simple navigational error that brings him to Port Royal. Is it politics, revenge, profit, or just "good business"? Whatever may motivate him motivates many to make decisions and take action. Though the Royal Navy, and it's commander in Port Royal, Commodore James Norrington, may scoff at the idea that the Company could supplant them...there is no doubt that things are starting to get a mite crowded in the Caribbean.
"The world is shrinking, the blank edges of the map filled in..."
And indeed, it is. Jack Sparrow is not the only one who must find his way, his place in this new world. Perhaps affected greater than him are the hundreds of men and women who also live in the Caribbean--sailors, soldiers, artisans, poets, nobility, beggars, thieves, and pirates.
Starting before Dead Man's Chest and adopting characters from all three movies, Aztec Gold rewrites the sequels--borrowing plots and events, but adding it's own twist to the story with the addition of original characters and more plots than even At World's End could boast. After Curse of the Black Pearl, nothing is set in stone, the plot and what can happen is as fluid and ever changing as the sea. And as harsh and un-tamable as a sea goddess who may yet be restored...
