The Emerald Key by Christopher Dinsdale: In 1847, after a confrontation with British soldiers, Jamie Galway awakens from a coma to find his brother, Ryan, and the ancient Irish text they had sworn to protect are missing. Jamie learns that his brother has been forced onto a ship bound for Canada. The ancient script, one of the keys to the secret location of a priceless treasure, has gone with him. On the advice of a secretive band of priests called the Brotherhood, Jamie crosses the Atlantic to find his brother and the lost key. Unaware that Jonathon Wilkes, a ruthless treasure hunter is also on the trail, Jamie must find Ryan first, before Wilkes, in his desperation to find the elusive treasure, resorts to murder. Jamie, followed by Wilkes, must race across an ocean and throughout Canada to see who will be the one to claim the Emerald Key.

Little Jane and the Nameless Isle by Adira Rotstein: Only two people have ever survived a trip to the Nameless Isle: Long John Silver the Second and Bonnie Mary Bright, the parents of aspiring pirate Little Jane Silver. They thought the volcanic caves on the island would be great places to store their treasure, but they were mistaken.

Pirate hunter Fetzcaro Madsea and his crew have taken Long John and Bonnie Mary prisoner and are now forcing the pirates to guide them across the island to the treasure. Hoping to use their secret knowledge of the island’s dangers to thin out their foes, Long John and Bonnie Mary take a deadly risk. Meanwhile, Little Jane rushes to intercept them by taking a secret route.

Do Little Jane and her friends have what it takes to brave the terrors of the island? Will she reach her parents in time to save them from the vengeful Madsea? And what strange horror lies in wait for them all in the lair of the island’s peculiar orange birds?

Minerva’s Voyage by Lynne Kositsky: Robin Starveling, aka Noah Vaile, is scooped off the streets of seventeenth-century Bristol, England, and dragged onboard a ship bound for Virginia by the murderous William Thatcher, who needs a servant with no past and no future to aid him in a nefarious plot to steal gold. Starveling fits the bill perfectly since he lives nowhere and has no parents. Aboard the ship, Starveling makes friends with a young cabin boy, Peter Fence. Together the two boys suffer through a frightening hurricane and are shipwrecked on the mysterious Isle of Devils. They solve the ciphers embedded in emblems found in Thatchers sea chest, which has washed up with the wreck, then make their way through gloomy forests and tortuous labyrinths to a cave on the shore that houses a wizard-like old man. Beset by danger and villainy on every side, they finally discover the old mans identity and unearth a treasure that is much rarer and finer than gold.

Perilous Passage by B.J. Bayle: After a shipwreck in 1809, Peter finds himself the victim of amnesia. The sea captain who finds the teenager gives him the only name he knows, while others derisively dub him Peter No-Name. Eventually, Peter finds employment in a Montreal tavern where he meets a French voyageur called Boulard who changes his life irrevocably. Boulard works for fur trader David Thompson, soon to become one of the world’s most famous explorers and mapmakers. Thompson is impressed with the teenager and enlists him in his obsessive quest to establish an overland “northwest” passage to the Pacific Ocean via the Columbia River. With Thompson, Peter embarks on an amazing series of adventures that brings him face to face with hostile Natives and exposes him to the hardships and life-threatening challenges of formidable mountains and primeval forests as the intrepid outdoorsmen canoe, ride, and sled across a continent still largely untouched by European civilization.
