The King is determined to discover what lies beyond the known world and has promised a handsome prize to the ship’s captain who can bring him a map. To do that, they’ll need mapmakers – and 14-year-old Quinn is shocked to be one of the chosen. While his older brothers long for adventure, Quinn is content with a quiet life on the farm, but when word of his special talent gets out, he has no choice but to pack his bags and join the mismatched crew of slaves and stowaways on board the Libertas.
Prisoner of the Black Hawk continues the story that began in The Race to the End of the World.
After being betrayed by a fellow scribe, Quinn is captured by ruthless explorer Juan Forden, who will stop at nothing to beat the Verdanians. On board Forden’s ship, the Black Hawk, Quinn struggles to outwit his captors, makes new enemies and unexpected allies, and encounters bloodthirsty pirates.
The prize for winning the race around the world is almost within reach. But sometimes the biggest danger can lie close to home.
Quinn, Ash, Zain and the crew of the Libertas are racing against the clock to get back to Verdania before the King’s deadline. Will they make it in time? Will Quinn complete the first map of the whole world? Will Zain bring back enough treasure to satisfy the King? Will they win the race to the end of the world?
Or will their enemies stop them from getting back at all?
Quinn is back! The race to map the world is over and he’s living a quiet life on the family farm – until he discovers that the King’s enemies want to capture him. Quinn is forced to go on the run, taking to the high seas once more. Can he survive when he is double-crossed and left for dead?
As Quinn’s journey unfolds, readers will find familiar faces, new faces and – well, totally unexpected faces! And Quinn discovers that there’s more to every story – including his own.
