Little Jane and the Nameless Isle
Little Jane encounters treachery and adventure on her voyage to the Nameless Isle in search of her parentsâ€™ buried treasure. Second book in the Little Jane Silver Adventure series.
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 islandâ€™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 islandâ€™s peculiar orange birds?
