Following the installation of a new High King to the throne, epic battle between two tense factions of Vendel and Vesten, an encounter with the berserker armies of hatred, Captain Valentin le Evariste finds himself finally flustered to find that the Pirate’s Ball is being held in the Montaigne emperor’s palace, and they forgot his invitation. It’s time for the crew to get together their finest clothes and show these rogues what really makes a party pop.
It’s an average day on the International Space Station. Daily experiments have concluded and the crew is busy working on cleaning the station, carrying out their mandatory 2 hours of exercise, or watching the Earth pass beneath them. A call from Mission Control is about to give them more work than they could have ever expected.
Having purged the heretics on Novabella, the Inquisitors are gloriously reassigned to Desoleum for interrogation work. This dirty clockwork world appears to have dredged up some mysterious rotten corpses. The cause of death still remains unknown.
Having revealed the true identity of the future High King of Vestenmannavnjar, the crew of the Fantoma Reine now has to convince him not to follow through with his desire to flee the country and the constant willing and pleading of the voices of his ancestors.
If they can accomplish that, they just have to prove to the warmaking Larsfolk that this low-class thief deserves to bear the title of High King, and hopefully use his influence to avoid all-out war between Vesten and Vendel and prevent the coming of the armies of the literal manifestation of hatred.
What could possibly go wrong?
