Ping Every time one of the wr words came up, I was pinged wright out of the story Wrung for rung and wretch for retch Once or twice wouldn t have matter but, after that, it forced me to be conscious of the story telling rather than the story for significant lengths of time.Ok, the good parts an epic cast of characters, each following their own thread of events, before the final tying up of all the lines Locations shimmy from one chapter to the next the Caribbean, England, Sweden island names com [...]

This another one for the just okay pile It was nice to see the familiar characters and it was also good to see that they gave Dolphin or an active role though I was disappointed that they never really addressed her parentage as much as I thought they would It s a pretty major development that didn t get enough focus I also liked the addition of Hopper who was different but likable and full of spunk Overall, this sequel was a little bit bland compared to the original and forced me to suspend my [...]
I really liked this book because it is an excellent story about how a small group of people joined together to defeat a common enemy It goes into detail about the different scenes and all the action that went on in this book I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good pirate story My favorite character was Commodore Brandon Blake.
This is a sequel to Isle of Swords and follows the adventures of pirate hunters Cat, Anne, Declan Ross, and their respective crews It takes place in the late 1600s early 1700s both King George I and William Teach are referenced in the novel I had read this novel first, not knowing it was a sequel it stands well enough on its own merits, but reading the first novel does help fill in the backstory of comments made in this novel It moves at a good clip, overall It has plenty of twists and turns in [...]
Isle of Swords and its sequel, Isle of Fire, are separate books, but I ll be reviewing them together because reasons It works because I have pretty much the same feelings about both of them Just so you know, this review contains minorish spoilers though I hesitate to call them spoilers because the reveals are completely predictable and I had it all figured out right away.A few years back, I read this author s The Door Within and the rest of the trilogy I remember enjoying it, so I wanted to give [...]
Good ending I enjoyed this book Nicely written and wraps things up nicely
An enticing sequel that closes out the story of young Cat in his search for answers
Wish there could be Cat and Anne parts, but overall, a well written, intriguing book
Another decent swashbuckling adventure.
An incredible book this is It has a good flow and feel to it, well developed characters, and engaging events.

Kinda expected the sequel not to be as awesome as the first book, Isle of Swords Even though Batson continued the great descriptions and adequately tied up the ending, there were some things I found annoying with this second book.1 WHERE is the romance we all were sniffing a mile away We knew it had to be coming Maybe the next chapteror the nextoh wait There are only two chapters left Oh my The book s over and view spoiler Cat didn t even propose or we didn t get to read it, anyway hide spoiler [...]
Everyone loves a good pirate story But everyone also HATES copy cats Wayne Batson successfully does what everyone loves I was expecting a good read when I bought it, but not only did the book surpass its predecessor Isle of Swords, it destroyed my expectations.Think about it How far can you go with a traditional pirate story But no, Mr Batson doesn t write traditional anything.The characters of this story are very different from that of a normal pirate tale, they aren t evil, wretched, pirates f [...]

This book was really amazing I m so glad that I got to read it This author does so much to put the picture in the readers minds and I felt like I was right there with the characters I really thought the underground headquaters was weird, but I liked how smart Cat was in figuring out about how the Merchant could hear them I also felt really bad for Commodore Blake when he was requested to go back to England and see the King I mean, justice was served for him by getting Commodore Wetherby back, bu [...]

2nd semester I really liked this book because it has a lot of action and at the same time humor The author also leaves you wondering what will happen the whole time I recommend this to readers who like suspense and action and humor all in one An example of a literary element in this book is when a character named Cat is trapped in a tunnel and doors keep closing around him This is dramatic irony because you know why and who is closing those doors and the character doesn t I think this author wro [...]
