I can't wait to read what happens to them next!
Christie
When I read this I was looking for something entertaining and a lighter read than a typical adult novel, which it was.
BigAl
The overall writing style seemed to be lacking any kind of feeling to it.

I JUST finished this book, and I had to come immediately and post my review while everything was fresh in my imagination....

If you are a child (10+) or even an adult who dreamt of pirate adventures as a child -- THIS IS YOUR BOOK!!!!

Oh! What an adventure! You go from a sleepy town, to a Merchant ship, to a Navy vessel, to a *shudder*... pirate ship... and the adventure never quits!!! Two young brothers sneak aboard a merchant ship to save their beloved Nana -- and swashbuckelry (I'm not sure if that's a word, but it fits) and adventure ensues!!!

The author has done an AMAZING job of describing life on board these ships... His descriptions of sights, smells, sounds are beyond reproach. He has a fantastic command of the english language and his descriptions are so good... so "spot on"... that you can literally see it, hear it, smell it, in your mind.

I cannot think of a single child who would not LOVE this story -- boy OR girl. I only wish I had this story to read when I was young.... Oh! The adventures my imagination would take me on after I read it!!!!

As for the ending... I don't want to give ANYTHING away -- let's just say it "shivered me timbers.... Arrrrrhhhh!"

I don't know if it's just me, but I feel a sequel coming on.... Please!!!!

Great for ALL kids young AND old!!!

Two brothers wanting a bit of adventure get a little more than they anticipated in this thrilling, action filled adventure. This was not a fluffy pirate tale, and once I started this story, I could hardly put it down! The characters are gritty and realistic. The villains are dastardly, and I especially did not like the Admiral. A nice combination of mystery and swashbuckling, bloody fights keep the reader nicely on edge and clicking away to find out what is going to happen. Farren and Peter are loyal brothers, and I found myself cringing through their mishaps and cheering their victories. I can't wait to read what happens to them next!

"Treasure Lost" by R.G. Cordiner is an adventure story about two young brothers who find themselves in possession of just a fragment of a clue about where a treasure of pirate plunder is buried. Unfortunately, there are other much less savory characters who want that fragment of a clue, and the kids find themselves thrust into a life-or-death quest in which they are pursued through the Caribbean by mean-spirited pirates with a stunning secret and a British Navy Admiral who is as relentless and cruel as Moby Dick's nemesis, Captain Ahab.

The action and situations develop and change at a non-stop pace, and the vocabulary and plot are far and away lively and intriguing enough to hold the attention and interest of the cliché 'children of any age.' An especially unique treat is Mr. Cordiner's phonetic rendering of sounds; it goes well beyond being merely onomatopoetic and is hilarious while being quite convincing. You can feel the PLLSH! from a cannonball as it plunges into the waves next to the wisp of a boat you're clinging to for dear life.

R.G. Cordiner has written a book that is reminiscent of the tales I devoured and fantasized about when I was young, but it was thoroughly entertaining to me as an adult. I read this story and relived some of those fantasy afternoons of my youth without being made to feel like I was trespassing into a realm meant only for younger people. I would not hesitate to recommend it for kids and ex-kids.

This book is a great adventure book for kids over 6, because it is a little violent with injuies. I would recomend this to a friend.

Although the obvious audience for Treasure Lost is probably 8-12 year old boys, this rollicking journey has something for everyone. What boy isn't up for a little swashbuckling adventure? When I read this I was looking for something entertaining and a lighter read than a typical adult novel, which it was. Yet the story was still engaging for an adult. As with the authors previous book, Candy Wars: The Tooth Fairies vs The Candy King, there are valuable lessons and morals hidden in the story - things that even adults can stand to be reminded about.

Another talent the author has is the ability to communicate action with sound rather than description. This technique has to be seen (or read) to be understood. Young readers have a great time reading these sounds aloud while they unknowingly practice their teacher's admonitions to "sound it out". Just when you're convinced that "Treasure Lost" couldn't possibly come to a satisfying ending a few loose threads come together for the perfect conclusion.
