The Premise

Following the discovery of her ancestor’s journal, 16-year-old alchemist Ryn Flamel is swept away on an adventure of high seas piracy to seek a mystical treasure. Pursued by the Pirate King Blackbeard, Ryn must overcome dark magic, superstition and betrayal, find The Spirit Stone, and restore freedom to pirates in the West Indies and beyond.



Ryn Flamel is a young alchemist living in Brethren’s Cove, a seedy town on an English-occupied island in the Caribbean. Ryn runs her father’s alchemy shop with the help of her childhood friend, Thomas. The two get by in a world that is increasingly unfriendly to them, until they happen upon an old journal of Ryn’s ancestor’s. That journal sets in motion a series of events that takes Ryn on an epic journey which causes her to question everything she knows to be true. she soon finds herself wrapped up in a world that tests her beliefs, her physical and inner strength, and unleashes an unknown power trapped within.



Former Quartermaster to Edward Teach, the infamous Blackbeard. Captain Zara and her crew meet Ryn in Brethren’s Cove, where she is enlisted by the young alchemist to find answers about a mysterious treasure – a treasure the girl believes to be what led to her father’s untimely death. Though reluctant to voyage with an inexperience maiden aboard her ship, Captain Z agrees, and the pirates venture forth to seek the treasure. But they’re not the only ones who do.
