In the 17th and 18th centuries, Britain sent orphans to the colonies because of a lack of laborers. This is the story of one such group sent to Jamaica but before they reach their destination, they are shipwrecked on a magical island. One of the passengers on the ship is John Henry, the son of the Earl of Carrick, who is searching for his missing father somewhere in the Caribbean. Through a series of adventures the orphans are befriended by the infamous pirate, Black Bart who helps them plot revenge on the man who had them kidnapped to become slaves on his plantation in Jamaica.

With John leading them, the children steal a ship and return to the safety of their island. The island’s single inhabitant Scurvy Jones, an old marooned sailor, tells the children the island’s name is the Crossbone Island and they were now the Crossbone Children.

What was unknown to the children was everything they had experienced had been carefully orchestrated by Merlin, the ancient magician. In fact, they were not really on an Island called Crossbone; they were actually on the Isle of Avalon where the evil half-sister of King Arthur, Morgan Le Fay, was still plotting to become Queen of England. Merlin guards yet one more secret; the Crossbone Children are, in reality, descendants of the Knights of the Round Table. Merlin needs them to defeat Morgan. All the while, John continues to search for his father.

Unlikely friendships are forged and romance is kindled in the Crossbone Children’s quest for adventure, freedom, and a life of their own.
This is the first book of the Crossbone Trilogy.
