Declan Ross, now employed by the monks and England as a ‘privateer’ out to capture other pirates, sets after ruthless Captain Thorne, whom is not as dead as once thought. Meanwhile, Cat leaves Ross to captain the monks’ fleet with Anne Ross in a quest to find the evil Merchant and take him down. Captain Thorne has not been idle, and enlists the help of Vikings and their mysterious fire to attack Britain. The Merchant, on the other hand, is much more dangerous than either Cat or Anne thought.
Isle of Fire is the epic conclusion, if he doesn’t write another book, of this series. It’s some of the best pirate fantasy I have ever read, both for youth and adult! :D

Cat, while staying with the monks, learns that if he so chooses, he may captian a ship. He's not sure whether to accept or to stay with Declan Ross. Finally, he decides to captian the ship, but on one condition: that Anne may be his Quartermaster. The monks accept, Declan Ross accepts, and Anne accepts, so they set off to find the evil Merchant...
Wayne Thomas Batson is OUTSTANDING! I loved the book, and everything about the book. I highly recommend it to anyone.

With a beautiful beginning, great building up of the story with the development of many characters, and the epic climax involving fire rain, I highly recommend this book.

One small problem I had with this book was a flurry of action. It was a little bit hard to follow here and there, and I felt that at times it was very fast-paced, perhaps too much so. The settings and point-of-views varied quite a bit, but it wasn’t too much a big deal. I just had to go back a reread now and then to let what I was reading soak in.
