Of the five Adrien English series books, this one is my favorite. But I highly recommend you read all five of them, and in order. This is the fourth in the series of 5 books. They are all excellent.
I don't think I've ever enjoyed a book as much as "The Death of a Pirate King".
This book took me on a roller coaster ride that I'll not soon forget.

What a difference 2-years makes – the boat set adrift is finally back on land again. Adrien has moved-on -- but out of site, doesn’t always mean out of mind…AND for both Adrien and Jake moving on hasn’t been so easy.
I found myself laughing out loud throughout the book. Lisa was in rare form but true to who she is – gotta love her.
