Acquired: Received a review copy from Capstone Press.

Reason for Reading: I've enjoyed other books in this series.
Great introduction to the world of pirates and privateers in the 1700s.  Isabel's time travel is more believable than in the Egypt book I just read, as her popping up does startle the natives, so to speak.  Isabel is aboard a British merchant ship when it is attacked by pirates, then she and the ship's doctor are kidnapped and taken aboard the pirate ship.  Explains the life of a pirate, how the sailors became pirates in the first place, the difference between pirates and privateers and the fact that pirates still exist today.  Interesting and exciting.
