I bought this book for my almost 14 year old son as a Christmas present. He read it in a day and a half and quickly raved on the author. Book was packed in obvious brand new and excellent condition from Overstock.

I picked up this book skeptical of pirate books that claimed to be clean, but I was proved wrong. Captain Jack Ross his crew, and his feisty daughter, Anne, are thrown into an adventure and quest to acquire a wonderful treasure hidden by monks. With shipwrecks, an evil pirate, adventures on the high seas, and a great message, this book is a great read for fiction lovers. I loved this book with it's characters full of personalities and the adventures of pirates. It weaves the story in a way that keeps you turning the pages. Anne Ross is one of my few very favorite female characters of all time. I love her spirit, courage, and strength. Truly inspiring, not to mention a swashbuckling adventure!

Isle of Swords defines a fun swashbuckling adventure! Its' fun, if not original creations: a boy with no memory, a massively strong pirate, a headstrong co-heroine and skilled but mysterious main character, fighting monks, and a generous helping of danger and action are sure to appeal to the adventurous young teens reader. The book contains both some violent flashbacks, and implied gore, so sensitive stomach readers may want to stear clear. For those that do brave the waters however, I believe you'll find a fun story with good take home values of loyalty, freedom from the past, and honor amidst troubled times.

I purchased this book as my grandaughter is an English teacher in Junior High and she wanted some books for her library. It seems her students are thrilled with reading Harry Potter books. This was the only one in her collection she didn't have and I couldn't find it in hard cover so I tried your website. Very happy with your service and will purchase from you again whenever I need a book.

I like to previews books I'm giving to youngsters in the family. Dragon Drums is a great teen/young adult book for those who enjoy fantasy.

Great level 4 reading book for the pre-teen Star Wars fan. It's full of pictures, so younger kids can enjoy it also.

Enjoyable book for kids, teens, and anyone who likes "light reading." So find a comfy spot, grab this book, "Coraline," and prepare to take an adventure into the world of fiction!

The series gets to the next level here - darker, more of the history of the wizarding world unfolding and scary scenes. Great story with lots of characters more developed and relationships / teen angst starting

I love these books! Often they're recommended for younger kids, but I'm a teen and I love them! They seem stupid and people are always like 'you're reading books about talking cats?' but you don't feel stupid while you're reading them. There's a few disgusting parts, and a some mature content that kids wouldn't understand, so I would rate it for kids 12 and over. You gotta give them a try. It'll be worth it.

I bought this book for my 10 yr old daughter and she is almost done reading it. She is going to loan it to her 11 yr old best friend. I've never seen these girls get so excited about a book before and am happy to see this. She tells me the story after she reads a chapter and I'm glad it is so interesting to her. I highly recommend this book and am thankful there are good books out there for the pre-teens to read & it isn't about Vampires or horror or romance. She wants to start reading the Diary of a Wimpy kid series too. That will probably be my next purchase. :)

Incredible book! Mr. Batson, with his simple, yet fast paced writing style, knows how to spin an amazing tale! Whipped half to death, a teen wakes on an island with no memory of who he is and how he got there. A pouch he clutches holds a shock of hair, a small cross, and a rare green diamond pirates would kill for (and do). Declan Ross, captain of the Wallace, and later the Bruce (and what a battle it was!), wants to free himself and his somewhat annoying and headstrong daughter Anne from the piracy business forever. But when he crosses with the notorious, blood thirsty pirate Bartholomew Thorne, things get ugly for him and a friendly order of monks... who hold the last (um... maybe not) map to the long lost treasure of Constantine located on the volcanic Isle of Swords. 115% percent, absolutely incredible!
The list of hot toys for tweens is different every year because kids ages 10 to 12 are quick to embrace new fads and the latest trends. Regardless of the year, however, the basic criteria will never change. Toys and hobbies for this age group must always be creative, cutting-edge, and fun. Toys that let pre-teens express themselves and show their interests are sure to be a hit.
