Book Review: Isle of Swords

Summary: A young lad awakens on an island, alone and brutally injured, with no memory of his past.
Captain Declan Ross searched for riches that will free him and his headstrong daughter, Anne, from the piracy business forever . . . Bartholomew Thorne, an infamously ruthless pirate, seeks to destroy Ross and any who stand in his way of the legendary treasure hidden by a mysterious order of monks.  With these intriguing characters and many more, Wayne Thomas Batson weaves a spell-binding adventure filled with high-seas drama where battles rage, storms brew, a long-dormant volcano awakens, and a sea creature slithers in the deep as pirates race for a cliff-top fortress.

Thoughts: I was a little hesitant getting into this book after my less than pleasant experience with  The Door Within. But Isle of Swords surprised me. A well written, action packed, faith driven tale of the high seas, it swept me away almost immediately! Intriguing characters and a fantastic plot! Also, this book does not condone pirates. Our good guys are mostly good guys, but they are still pirates and this is shown as wrong if a little necessary. I appreciated the fact that there is a fairly honest portrayal of pirates in here despite the main characters partaking of such a trade, and they're still enjoyable even so!

Content: Violence, it gets a little bloody at times. Other than that, a clean read for all ages!
