The Angel's Command: A Tale from the Castaways of the Flying Dutchman Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ben and his Labrador, Ned, castaways from the legendary ghost ship Flying Dutchman, swore never go to sea again — but a mishap in South America lands them aboard a French pirate ship with not one, but two villainous sea captains in pursuit. To make matters worse, Ben is still haunted by visions of Captain Vanderdecken, whose ghost seeks vengeance on the former cabin boy. And that is only the beginning of their adventures!

Review:

"[A] rousing second installment....[V]ivid language, larger-than-life characters, and multiple story lines yield a sprawling, epic tale. Anyone, young and old, who enjoys being immersed in big, romantic adventures, will love this series." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"As in all of Jacques's books, he conjures a colorful, fully realized world...and injects the pages with plenty of snappy repartee....Readers can once again take satisfaction in the fact that virtue is rewarded, evil-doers get their comeuppance and good triumphs over evil in Jacques's universe." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Although the heroes usually escape from tight spots through fortuitous accidents or divine intervention rather than clever plot twists, Jacques has still come up with another page-turner. Readers who enjoyed the first book will find this sequel even more exciting." Booklist

Review:

"This installment in the series is not Jacques at his best....There are guest appearances by the Flying Dutchman to add a level of spookiness, and the plot is almost nonstop action, with lots of swordplay, an avalanche, and a shark attack." School Library Journal

Review:

"[A] charming yet haunting story....Ben and Ned's plight is well detailed, entwining seemingly unconnected episodes into a single tale of their unending journey that will keep most teens interested." VOYA

Synopsis:

Ben and Ned, the boy and dog, find themselves on board a Frenchman's pirate ship, pursued by an English privateer and a Spanish buccaneer. Their adventures eventually take them to the Pyrenees, into the very heart of the mountains, in this sequel to Castaways of the Flying Dutchman. Illustrations.
