While I enjoyed the book, it is not as entertaining as the other titles in the series. It just didn't have the zip that the other stories do. I had the feeling that Ms Ross simply wrote this one to get it on the market without fully developing the storyline.

This is a MUST have book!! I wish it were available 4 or 5 years ago!! Great Book for parents of boys ages 9-19. Great Advice and information for all Parents!!! I am not much of a book reader (mostly due to time) but, since I received this book from overstock.com on Monday 2/22 I haven't put it down much. I encourage you to read it and see how much different you think and react to situations raising boys ages 9 and up!! Please tell everyone you know who has boys to buy a copy of this book, you won't be disappointed. The Authors Michael Ross and Susie Shellenberger are amazing.

Isle of Swords is a pirate fantasy written by Wayne Thomas Batson. It has a sequel called Isle of Fire. A young boy awakens on a beach with no memory at all. A pirate ship passes by, and upon finding the boy, brings him into their crew. This ship, captained by Declan Ross, is heading toward the supposed location of great riches which will insure the retirement of he and the prosperity of his daughter, Anne. The treasure is also sought by an infamous captain, the deadly and ruthless Blackthorne, who wished to eliminate whatever obstacle gets in his way. The treasure on an island is protected by a sacred order of monks, who would rather die than give up its location. The pirates must also beware the frightening creature of the deep, as well as the active volcano located on the island. Isle of Swords is well written, with many skillful integrations of moral lessons.

Isle of Fire is an adventurous pirate fiction, the sequel to Isle of Swords. It displays many moral themes, with great plot precision. Declan Ross and his daughter, Anne have teamed up with Commodore Blake to hire his pirate friends to help hunt down the enemy pirates, including Bartholomew Thorne, who has escaped his prison. Cat is asked to join the Brethrens quest against the dreaded Merchant, and accepts, and gives Anne the opportunity to join him on the sea. She is given permission by Declan, and they track the Merchant to the Isla Secreta, his hideout. Meanwhile, Thorne has sailed to the Raukar tribe, an ancient surviving Viking clan. He enlists their aid and their fiery cannons, which no one could have been prepared for. He sets their fleet out for an attack on England, which Declan has picked up a rumor about. Declan warns his friends and they set out to disrupt Thornes plans.

Quite possibly, Mamets greatest work to date. It is at least the equal of Glengarry Glen Ross, Edmond, and American Buffalo, if not better. Mamet walks the tightrope of race in America, questioning and arguing nearly every assumption and stereotype of the past 50 years on race relations. The plot involves an older white man, accused of raping an African American woman. The two lawyers considering taking the case one black and one white, with a black woman as their new assistant. This four-person cast, with only three together at any one time, provides a fairly amazing multitude of conversations on the case in particular, and race in general. Nearly every aspect of the topic is brought up in some way, truly plumbing the angst, rage, and confusion of the subject matter in a very short period of time (only 64 pages). While I would have liked to see the last scene go on a little longer, maybe another 15 or 20 pages, this work is shocking, thought-provoking, and utterly brilliant.

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!
