Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer KMeng
Sylbrac, otherwise known as Thorn, is a member of the
Pilot's Guild. This group contains members who have the
capability to navigate and travel Crosspointe's deadly seas.
The cruel leader of the guild bans Thorn from sailing only
because of his hatred for him. Thorn, however, lives for
sailing and is devastated. While he is on his way to relax
and grieve, he is kidnapped by sailors of an unregistered
ship. On board, he is forced to work and battle with the
wicked captain and crew. If the ship ever makes it back to
port, will he still be alive?
The Black Ship is a book
that can be read by adventure and action lovers alike. The
vocabulary used is of a high quality and highlights the
skill of Diana Pharaoh Francis. In the beginning, there are
many events and pieces of the storyline that capture your
attention and hold it throughout. Thorn is grieving over his
brother's death, and many people can relate to his life in
different ways. The land of Crosspointe has the ability to
catch the reader's attention with its intricate environment
and characters. I recommend this book to readers who love
sailing, action, or adventure stories.
