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.

I can picture many fifth grade boys I've taught really getting into the action and the violence of this book. Parts of the story were great fun. I, however, am not a member of the targeted audience, and it shows. There was too much senseless violence, too many unjustified killings, and too many buffoonish characters for my taste. I also had difficulty with the setting. The author did warn that he had modernized the language, but that threw the whole story off for me. Because of the language, I pictured a more modern-day setting, but when a character referred to his tunic, I was jarred from the story and had to adjust my visualizations of the characters and their locations. If you are a fan of action/adventure stories and don't mind lots of bloody violence and killing, you might really enjoy this swash-buckling tale.

At first, I was thrilled with the correct grammar of the author, only noticing three minor things in the first half of the book. But when I got a little more than halfway through, the spelling and grammatical errors increased. It seemed as if the author got in a hurry to either finish the story or to get it published. I don't know how easy it is to clean up a digital file such as an ebook, but I hope corrections will be made to this book.

Maybe I'm a little too squeamish for the story, but I could certainly recommend it for those who are not.

This action-packed pirate adventure may have been written with younger readers in mind but the plot certainly has enough thrills and suspense to keep an adult entertained.

I was pleased to receive Treasure Lost as a gifted copy and found the book to be an exciting read. The story is about the adventures of two young brothers and their quest to save their grandmother. She had been abducted by a ruthless pirate while he was searching for the two boys after they stumbled onto possession of part of a treasure map.

The story narration of the hapless crew members who were pressed-ganged into service or onboard voluntarily and the punishment they received solely at the whim of their superiors makes the reader feel involved in just how ghastly sea life was.

I throughly enjoyed reading the fast-paced plot and even felt squeamish at times throughout parts of the storyline. If you want to read a rousing pirate story then this is the tale for you.
