About the Author
ROB KIDD sailed the Seven Seas under Captain Jack Sparrow for six months. During that time he chronicled Captain Sparrow's adventures and also learned much about the crafty pirate's youth, which is the writer's favorite subject to explore. As he has technically been deceased for a number of centuries, he pens his works through a channeler, and is forever grateful to the mystic Tia Dalma for teaching him how to possess great writers. When he is not spending time as a disembodied spirit, he enjoys golfing and traveling.

For CITY OF GOLD, Jack and his crew are racing back to New Orleans to try and find their missing first mate, Arabella, and Jack wouldn't mind finding the final gem that fits into the mysterious amulet he's acquired. If he can find that last gem, then the true power of the amulet will be revealed. But along the way, Madame Minuit and her minions are after Jack -- and this time it will take a battle to the very finish before all is revealed...
The pacing works well again in this volume, but for some reason it seemed to lack a spark that previous titles had, such as book five, THE AGE OF BRONZE. Kidd also seems to be wrapping things up rather quickly to start another storyline that centers around the mysterious Tia Dalma and crew member Fitzwilliam. And in the last moments of the book, a new and rather nefarious villain enters the scene, which does promise good things to come in book eight, THE TIMEKEEPER. There is still plenty of action and humor, and fans of the series will want to read this volume to keep up with what's happening in Jack Sparrow's world. But again, it's not the absolute best.
We'll see where Kidd goes in the next volume, however, as it does promise to be very interesting...
In The City of Gold, Captain Jack and the crew of the Barnacle are in search of their first mate, Arabella. As they search the silver city of New Orleans the encounter the beautiful and dangerous Madame Minuit and her pirate brood! The evil Madame plans to mine the city for her own selfish needs.
Wonderful read and can't wait for Volume 8!
