The past can come back to haunt you — but it can save you, too.
That's a lesson Bane Skiles learns in a story that begins when Hiroshi Ishikawa is commissioned as a lieutenant in the Imperial Navy. His life, he believes, is set for him, but it's changed by events beyond his control.
What Bane doesn't know then is that the action of that night will return to him years later when his grandmother foresees the Voyager sailing with black sails on a black sea. Skiles struggles to understand what the vision means and wonders if it's connected to the past or his future.
Skiles gets some answers when he slips into the past in a story mixed with stolen treasure, lies, deceit, and the one thing in life he thought he had lost.
