The main charactor was Kevin and a little while later on in the book his sister. Kevin is an eleven year old boy who is captured by Captain Grey and his "free" army. His father went mad and took his kids and began wondering with Kevin and his sister. The father was not much of a charactor for he went mad, his kids didn't care for him and he was killed in the first few pages of the book.
The plot is where a boy Named kevin is kidnapped locked in a room, and then educated on how to load guns, and Cannons, fire things and do every thing u need to know on how to plunder large schooners. Kevin must earn the captains trust to be allowed to go outside come outside, eat any food, come on more trips of plundering, or even to survive. He must be trusted in order to ever destroy the captain and his men.
The book is basicly being kidnapped being forced to help your kidnapers and then getting revenge and escaping.
I really enjoyed this book because it had alot of suspense, and I love suspence. It also had a really great endingbut the begining was a bit confusing. So i give this book 5 stars.
