Description

Kitto’s adventure continues in the suspenseful sequel to The Dagger Quick, which School Library Journal called aquest perfect for landlubbers and pirate aficionados alike.”

On the high seas of the Caribbean in the 1600s, a twelve-year-old boy, Kitto, stands wrongly accused of his father’s murder and is forced into adulthood too quickly as he tries to prove his innocence. After a brutal shark attack, Kitto must take refuge on a forsaken island that holds a store of valuable nutmeg, with its power to make men as rich as kings.

When he encounters the notorious Alexandre Exquemelin, known as X, he discovers a dark secret about his own past and identity. Will the events of Kitto’s past determine his fate, or will he have the courage to forge his own destiny?

A tale of friends and fiends, good and evil, pirates and predators, and the thrill of the high seas, The Dagger X is an exciting adventure and classic story of the search for manhood and identity.
