I give this book a 5/5 because suspense is awesome. This is the second book in this series (the first is entitled, Isle of Swords and you can find the review below its spoiler.) Wayne Thomas Batson has really outdone himself with this sequel. I found the first very predictable in comparision to this one. He added more humour and the laughing in some ways helped ease my mind before I could freak out or be mad at a character. I am in love with most of the characters (sometimes even the bad guys). I can't wait for the third book to come out, which according to Wikipedia, is scheduled for sometime 2012. Looking forward to it. ENJOY!THANK YOU WAYNE THOMAS BATSON FOR WRITING THE PERFECT PIRATE SERIES TO ENJOY!
