Isle of Swords is in my small opinion MUCH better then the `Pirates of the Caribbean'. Now before you comment that I'm SO Wrong let me explain.
The story is just as exciting and funny as the movies.

With Red Eye the sword lover, captain Ross the Scottish pirate, Stede the quartermaster, Midge the carpenter with bad breath, Nubby the one handed cook and his spoon, and Jacques St. Pierre the crazy Frenchman. Who would not LOVE the characters of this book?

The plot is good and the story has as many twist and turns as a roller coaster.
Cat the main character is found on the shore of a small cove. Who is he? Not even he knows. And who was the sick man that whipped him near to death with the cat of nine tales? Why?
The villain is one of the best ever and with the bleeding sick, who will dare to keep him form the treasure that he wants so bad?
5 Stars!!!!!

Declan Ross is a pirate wanting out of the sweet trade. He’s looking for the big haul that can get him and his daughter Anne, out forever. Anne’s one desire is to be a strong pirate. On a stop at an island, they find a teenage boy with no memory whatsoever. They name him Cat and quickly find that he is skilled in pirate tasks. With a monk skilled in both sword and Word as their guide and unexpected help from Cat, they set out to find the monks’ vast treasure. However, ruthless pirate captain Bartholomew Thorne is also after the treasure.
The first installment of this 2 part, maybe 3 part series, was a breathtaking pirate fantasy with some interesting twists and turns. Highly recommended to anyone who likes pirate fantasy.
