**mild spoiler alert**
after the incredible danger Maribel finds herself in, plus being reunited with characters from the past, etc., there is really no conflict whatsoever, just a couple conversations that say the danger is now past. There were some subplots/more issues introduced in the end that are never given the chance to play out, and I was left with quite a few questions. I also felt that the adult relationship between the two main characters was far too abrupt, and it was odd that Maribel's reunion with her family combined with them keeping an enormous secret from her didn't create a lot more conflict.
With all that said, I still enjoyed the book, and would definitely look into other things the author has written. I enjoyed her style and her storytelling, though I would probably recommend this for a more teenage crowd based on the things I mentioned above.
By no fault of her own, eleven year old Maribel Cordoba finds herself on board the famed "Ghost Ship", manned by a notorious French privateer, Captain Beaumont. Her precocious nature has just landed her in the ship's brig, to the amusement of the crew; and a stark testament to the captain's determination to remind "Red" that he, not she, is in charge of his ship. Her whimsical dreams of high seas adventures turn into reality as she proves her worth as a night watchmen, until one fateful evening, when her future crashes around her.
Jean-Luc Valmont has wondered about his annoying young passenger for years, guilt-ridden that she may have perished at the bottom of the sea. Years have passed, when what to his wondering eyes should appear, but a very beautiful, grown-up version of his Maribel. Now what? She knows things about him that could prove dangerous to them both.
Sail on this high seas adventure as it survives numerous storms, produces many chuckles and remains true to the words of the psalmist when he declares, " thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet . . . . .. . the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!" Psalm 8
By: Kathleen Y’Barbo
This story begins with a spitfire of a girl. I enjoyed the energy and boldness of Maribel Cordoba, the main character. The beginning of this book was an adventure and fun to read. With that said, part two of this story was rather abrupt and stunted. The story felt incomplete. I will admit the story took turns I did not expect but there was not explanation for them. I would have liked to see some more depth to the end of this book. Over all though it was well written and enjoyable to read. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.
