Dead Men Tell No Tales

"To release the power of the sea, all must divide..."

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a 272-page novel based on the 2017 film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.


Henry is on a mission. As a young sailor in the British navy, he has dedicated his life to the sea, learning all about its lore and legends. He hopes to one day find the Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact said to give its bearer the power to control all oceans. It is only with the Trident that Henry can free his father, Will Turner, from a terrible curse.

Carina, a brilliant astronomer, has uncovered a secret: the Map No Man Can Read, the map that leads straight to the Trident of Poseidon, is hidden in the stars. With her knowledge of the heavens, Carina seeks the Trident not only to prove herself as a scientist, but also to unravel a great mystery about where she came from and who she truly is meant to be.

Captain Jack Sparrow could really use the Trident of Poseidon. An old enemy―the ghostly Captain Salazar―has been unleashed on the seas, dead set on killing every pirate he crosses and seeking revenge against Jack. Only the Trident of Poseidon can save Jack from the ruthless pirate killer's attack.

When this unlikely trio teams up, it is a race against time to find the Trident or face certain death. But their quest may be doomed from the start...
