Book Description

A long-lost emerald, a missing treasure map, and a wealthy villain combine for an action-packed adventure!

Thirteen-year-old Noah Winter, the son of sea-exploring treasure hunters, dives the San Isabel shipwreck with his parents in search of a mysterious treasure map lost in the murky depths off the Florida Keys over a century ago. The map reveals the hiding place of the priceless De La Rosa emerald. But before the Winters can find the map, a wealthy treasure-hunting rival kidnaps Noah’s parents. Now Noah must match wits with a dangerous adversary, not only to discover the treasure map first, but to rescue his mom and dad before it’s too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edge of your seat adventure! March 1, 2012
A Kid's Review
Format:Kindle Edition
This review was written by my 12 year old son:
I could hardly wait for school to end! But it finally did and for two evenings straight all I did was read the Emerald Quest. I didn't realize until the end of the book that I was sore from sitting on the edge of my seat! I stayed up until my mom insisted it was time for bed(thank goodness she extended my bedtime, otherwise I might have dropped dead from the suspense!) Not only was there treasure hunting, but it also has mystery, both of which I have been hooked on for a long time. Ive already told my friends about it. Until the next book comes out, I'll just read this one over and over again. Thanks for writing it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not a young adult male but... April 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I confess. I am actually a middle aged woman. And I loved this book! As a younger incarnation I read Biggles, The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Willard Price, etc. this book reminded me of all those happy times. I liked the fact that the protagonist was believable (he actually had to do school work!) and vulnerable (he bleeds) and does not act as the hero all on his own, and there are repercussions. All this makes the story more realistic. Add to that the fact that the simple but elegant prose just caught me up and swept me along and you have one good read. Another positive was the contemporary social and ecological aspect of the book, very nice. And I also like a good villain in my books! To my mind I pick up a lot about an author through their children's writing, and this just left me wanting to read more. I now have a stock pile of books on my iPad Kindle app just waiting for my attention :-) Thank you Renee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-Paced, Gripping Mystery September 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
(This book was originally reviewed for Readers' Favorites)

The Emerald Quest, which is book #1 in The Noah Winter Adventure Series by Renee Pawlish, is a preeteen and young adult adventure story that centers around a thirteen year old boy named Noah, along with his parents Frank and Riley, and their assistant and friend of the family, Anthony. The Winters are experienced adventure hunters who explore the depths of the ocean around their Florida Keys home, along with the many shipwrecks that can be found there. They are called upon to find lost treasures, which in this case is a long lost and very valuable emerald that had been rumored to be in a family for generations. There are always dangers that go along with treasure hunting, and this time is no exception. Noah will face predators on land and under the sea as he and his family race to find the gem before it lands in the wrong hands.

The Emerald Quest by Renee Pawlish is a well written, exciting story that preteens and young adults who love the adventure and mystery genre will snap up. They will easily identify with Noah, as he is just like any other 13-year-old boy who would rather explore than do his homework, and who finds pirates, buried treasure, and mysterious bad guys to be wildly exciting.

The book is well formatted and age appropriate, as well as a quick read that will grip readers from the first page, and leave them waiting impatiently for the next undersea adventure that befalls Noah and his family!

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME ADVENTURE! April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Noah Winter's parents have an awesome job. They are treasure hunters! But, now, they have been kidnapped! Noah and Anthony (Noah's parent's assistant) think they know who did it, but they have no evidence. Noah and Anthony decide to finish the mission (the latest treasure hunt) his parents were on when they were kidnapped in hopes of finding the treasure map that reveals the location of the valuable De La Rosa emerald and more importantly, Noah's mom and dad! Diabolical enemies, a Burmese Python, scuba diving, pirates, shipwrecks, ghosts, you think a 13-year old like Noah would be tired out after all this, nope!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of the adventure and excitement in it. I REALLY liked Noah as a main character! He was an awesome guy. He was brave, smart, kind and very adventurous. The story is a type I like very much and I think this would be a great book for reluctant boy readers. The book was a quick read for me (maybe because it was so exciting) and there isn't any bad language in it. There is some mild violence, but nothing graphic or upsetting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventure for all ages February 23, 2012
By Amy
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful adventure for all ages and a definite page Turner. Noah keeps you wondering what will happen next. Treasure hunting and underwater adventures. A very smart young man that proves just because you are young it doesn't mean you can't accomplish big things. Can't wait for Noah's next adventure.

Noah's parents are treasure hunters and I wish I could tag a long for real. Great descriptions of their adventure. It was wonderful seeing it all through Noah's eyes and his perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for grown ups December 23, 2012
By SD
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 10 year old and he absolutely loved it. In fact I read it with him so we could talk about it as he made progress. It was fast paced from the start and grabbed his attention really quickly and it took him to a world far removed from his own. He can't wait for the second in the series. The only down side is that he's now nagging me for scuba lessons.
