"A robust story of a young lad in the British navy during the Nelson years. A thorough insight and beautiful portrait of those days under wind blown sails and the creak of wooden hulls. Peter Greene has created a story that shines from every page. An excellent book. He truly nails an insight of nineteenth century sailing ships and their crews." - Clive Cussler

Homeless and alone on the streets of London in 1800, twelve year-old Jonathan Moore survives this harsh and dangerous world using courage, intelligence and determination. His dismal fate changes dramatically one day after he is abducted by a gang and pressed into service aboard the HMS Poseidon,a forty-four gun fighting frigate of the British Royal Navy. However, there is more to the event than just a change of address. How is it that some members of the crew, including the Captain, already know his name? Why do the officers seem to favor him above the other new crew members?

As Jonathan endeavors to solve these mysteries, he is thrust into a daring mission to recover a hidden treasure on a remote Caribbean isle. Unfortunately, the crew and officers of the Poseidon are not the only ones searching for the prize. In a desperate race across the Atlantic to Skull Eye Island, Jonathan is pitted against sword-wielding spies, engages in terrifying ship-to-ship battles and in the end, must match his wits and courage against a ruthless and cunning French Captain and his powerful warship.

Enjoy this new edition complete with illustrations by Michelle Graham.

I had the great pleasure of being one of the first to receive this outstanding story. Skull Eye Island is filled with adventure on the high seas. The author did an excellent job of crafting a tale that quickly captured my interest and left me yearning to learn of the exploits of Jonathan Moore. In addition to a great story, I learned a great deal about sailing vessels of old. It’s obvious the author has a deep understanding of nautical terms and the inner workings of 1800’s sailing

I really enjoyed this book. I couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it almost all in one sitting. I thought the characters were compelling and well developed. I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen with each one of them. The author obviously has knowledge of sailing and the time period and does an excellent job of weaving those facts into the story. I would recommend this to both children and adults. The mix of humor, action and a bit of fantasy make it a very easy read.
