In a fantastic and chilling standalone second chronicle to the Secret Journey's of Jack London Golden and Lebbon create a tale of adventure that kept me riveted all the way through. While I have been a fan of their writing both as individuals and a team I had never read the first of their Jack London books because I had heard that it had been labelled for younger readers. I Think now that I have seriously deprived myself of some good reading and will be amending this asap. For those of you who don't know who Jack London is, he was a socially active writer who travelled to and is best known for his time in the Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush which inspired the Book and numerous adaptations of, "White Fang." (highly suggested reading) Golden and Lebbon have taken Jack and his extraordinary world and have made it even more so; from references to the legendary Wendigo he faced down in the first saga to the chilling situation he finds himself in this time. On his travels back from the Yukon, Jack and the ship he is on is attacked by a band of cut-throat pirates, the leader of whom is intrigued by Jack, the wildness and intelligence he senses in him and the fact that Jack's bravery in the face of danger and overwhelming odds stirred Jack to fight them. He is taken onto their ship and put to work. Onboard he meets a mysterious dusky woman from New Orleans named Sabine and learns even more about how many unexplainable things there are in the world as well as discovering the bone chilling secret of the pirates that captured him and having to figure a way to escape from the clutches of these monsters while stuck on a ship in the freezing North Pacific. (hint: look at the book title) One of the things that I quite enjoyed about this was instead of just being a typical action/werewolf book was the moral exchanges between Jack and the other characters and I hope that the younger readers who get the chance to appreciate this book will take some time to consider the questions raised. (I suppose some of us older readers should do the same actually.) The story was well put together and holds the interest. My only criticism is that it ended but I guess that is the tragedy of any good story...it has an end. My thanks to the authors for the fun read and also for reminding me that even if I hear something is made for a younger reader does not mean that it is not worth my time.
