About Blacksouls (via this USA Today article):

Nicole Castroman brings the dangerous pirate ports of the Caribbean to life in this vibrant sequel to Blackhearts — the reimagined origin story of history’s most infamous pirate, Blackbeard.

Edward “Teach” Drummond is setting sail to the Caribbean as first mate on the most celebrated merchant ship in the British fleet —u ntil he rebels against his captain. Sailing on the same blue waters, Anne barely makes it to Nassau, where she hopes to learn more about her ancestry. What she doesn’t expect is a port filled with lawless criminals and danger lurking around every corner.

More about Blacksouls (as explained by Nicole Castroman in the USA Today article mentioned above):

"There will be battles at sea, storms and sword fights. Nassau in the late 17th century was a lawless place, a budding pirate stronghold. Its shallow waters and natural harbors created a safe haven from British man-o-wars and Spanish galleons. It was ideally located near the busy merchant shipping lanes and provided easy access to hordes of lightly defended merchant ships. To sum up Blacksouls, it will be much more swashbuckling than the first book. Anne and Teach will still have their swoon worthy moments, but with threats and danger around every corner, their lives are about to get decidedly more complicated."
