"The Black Sails" series is the prequel of the things described in the world-famous "Treasure Island' by Stevenson.
All the events happened 20 years before the Treasure Island story and begin in 1715. The main story is set on the Caribbean New Providence Island, which has become a second home for all the dregs of the society - itâ€™s densely populated by swarms of pirates, whores, thieves, burglars and the like. The only rule here is anarchy and cruelty couples with romance, violence and challenge. And the first to make a contribution in all of this is Captain Flint - the best and the most notorious pirate ever existed.
The Royal Fleet of Great Britain is sent to destroy this piece of land and its inhabitants, putting this pirateâ€™s denâ€™s story to the utter end. But the merciless Flint will never let it happen. With the best motifs in mind, the captain puts everything at stake â€“ he conspires with Eleanor. The notorious Â Eleanor Guthrie is the daughter of a crowned thief. Her daddy whitewashes all the loot of the criminal lot. Eleanor and Flint together make elaborate plans. If fulfilled they will bring their creators lives of luxury and success.
But there appear some obstacles on their way. Their plans are prevented from their embodiment by the captainâ€™s opponent, Eleanorâ€™s father and the young sailor John Silver all trying to bring Eleanor and Flintâ€™s intentions to naught.
This series is a must-watch for adventure fans and treasure hunt lovers.
