Jon Sinclair is a precocious twelve-year-old boy living with grandparents who have a very unique hobby: time travel. Having already made several trips in the time capsule known as the Carousel, Jon and his grandmother plan a trip back to July 4, 1776, to watch the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
But things go horribly awry when the Carousel malfunctions, and they are thrust onto the shores of Port Royal, Jamaica, in 1692. As his grandmother works to repair the machine, Jon wanders off on his own-and is promptly kidnapped by the notorious pirate, Captain BlackHeart. Forced into the role of cabin boy, Jon does his best to adapt to a rugged life at sea as his grandparents embark on a desperate search to find him.
Will Jon survive his frightening ordeal? Or will he meet his fate at the hands of rival pirates-or, worse yet, as the result of a tidal wave that threatens to destroy the entire pirate stronghold?
Filled with excitement, mystery, and harrowing danger, BlackHeart's Legacy: Book One of the Odyssey of Jon Sinclair is a thrilling time-travel adventure that will captivate readers of all ages.
