About the Author

Peter Greene is the author of The Adventures of Jonathan Moore a young adult series and its first two books Skull Eye Island and Castle of Fire. Skull Eye Island has won the 2012 Adventure Writers Competition's Grand Master Award sponsored by the Clive Cussler Collector's Society. Kirkus Reviews says Skull Eye Island (book 1) is: "A heartwarming tale of a boy essentially orphaned in search of his father, the novel never ceases to entertain. Greene’s swashbuckling tale of high-seas adventure is pure, uncomplicated fun". The books are based in the early 1800's on the main character Jonathan Moore and his adventures on the sailing ship HMS Poseidon, a forty-four gun fighting frigate of the Bristish Royal Navy. The volumes are age approriate, no magic or vampires, and historically accurate. “I wanted to create a story that would be exciting for children and young adults, and one that was easy to read aloud. I also wanted to keep the adults interested so that children could see their parents enjoying the story and see that reading is fun,” said Greene. “That’s how we create future readers, by setting an example.” Jonathan Moore, the hero of Skull Eye Island and Castle of Fire succeeds using courage, intelligence and determination. “I believe that is a wonderful lesson for everyone: that they have it within themselves to do something great,” says Greene. “No need to wait for a magical event or some strange relative to grant you a bizarre power – we can succeed and excel with what we have inside ourselves.” Peter lives in Arizona, with his wife and two children.

My 14 yr. old son writes "I recently read Mr. Greene's novels, the first book was excellent and very quick to the action that set a good foundation for the second. Castle of Fire was very flowing and kept the reading interesting and very exciting. This book can be compared to many well know authors. Greene makes the reader feel a connection with Jonathan Moore. This book it is spot on with the time period and is comparable to some of Bernard Cornwell's books. I would highly recommend this book as part of a series that will really grasp the reader."

After reading the first book in series, The Adventures of Jonathan Moore, aloud with my family, we could not wait for the second book. Thankfully, Peter Greene rewarded our patience with another great read!

Castle of Fire begins with the scene from the end of Skull Eye Island but told from a different perspective - - a very rewarding experience because just a few pages into Castle of Fire, we had our hearts warmed with fond memories of the previous adventure. But, Castle of Fire revs up with its own new adventure that proves just as fun and wildly entertaining, maybe even more so because, now that we know many of the main characters, the adventure is front and center.

My kids, 8 & 6 as we read Castle of Fire together as a family, again became so absorbed in the story that they were often begging for "just a few more pages before bed!" I really can't say enough about how they love these books but maybe this illustration will get the point across: When we adopted an "Elf on the Shelf" last holiday season, my kids named ours Jonathan Moore!

Even though there is some intense action (and a word or two that we wouldn't use at home but, hey, we're total prudes), my kids handled it fine. In fact, the progression of the story and the maturation of the characters, especially young Jonathan and Sean, provided plenty of opportunity for us to have genuine conversation about growing up and responsibility. Even when things don't go perfectly, Jonathan faces the consequences squarely - - he's no whiner, that's for sure! And what parent wouldn't want that as an example for your kids?

If you're got a young reader in the house or want to share a deeper literary experience with the emerging reader in your house, I wholeheartedly and unequivocally recommend The Adventures of Jonathan Moore: Skull Eye Island and Castle of Fire.

My grandchildren and husband eat this series up! It is exciting and filled with great moral lessons. My husband is still asking me questions about the story.

My rating: 3.5 Stars

I gave the first book in the series 4 stars, but lowered this one because I didn't think it was quite as good as the first book, and because of all the grammatical and spelling errors. I loved the first book and couldn't wait to read this one. I thought this book started out slowly and it took until about half-way through for me to really get into the book. The ending, however, finally got back to the adventure and action of the first book. I thoroughly enjoyed the ending and was glad that I finished. If you read and enjoyed the first book then you should definitely read this one. I love that it is mostly clean (there is some sword fighting and minor violence, and maybe two swear words-no more than that) and I love the characters in this book. This book is a little deeper than the first one, but still fun and entertaining. I would recommend it for ages third-fourth grade and up. For the younger children you may need to explain some sailing terms, but that's a quick google search away. You may read my full review on my book blog: the-readathon.blogspot.com.
