A swashbuckling triumph of storytelling, Flint and Silver provides a thrilling ride back to the rich and wondrous world of Long John Silver and his fiendish nemesis Joseph Flint in this prequel to the beloved classic Treasure Island.

John Silver had never killed a man. Until now, his charisma, sheer size and, when all else failed, powerful fists had been enough to dispatch his enemies. But on a smoldering deck off the coast of Madagascar, his shipmates dead or dying all around him, his cutlass has just claimed the lives of six pirates. Finding himself surrounded by their revenge-thirsty crewmates, Silver fears his promising merchant navy career is at an end. But then the pirate captain makes him an offer he can't refuse.

On the other side of the world, Joseph Flint, a naval officer wronged by his superiors, plots a bloody mutiny. Strikingly handsome, brilliant, but prey to sadistic tendencies, Flint is regarded as the most dangerous bandit on the high seas.

Together these gentlemen of fortune forge a deadly and unstoppable partnership, steering a course through treachery and betrayal while amassing vast treasure.

But the arrival of Selena, a beautiful runaway slave with a murderous past, and Flint's schemes to secure the pieces of gold for himself trigger a rivalry that will turn the best of friends into sworn enemies.

And so the legend of Treasure Island begins - an epic battle of wits and blades that unravels the mysteries of Robert Louis Stevenson's greatest work on the sweltering seas of the Caribbean. Download and start listening now!

    " I HAPPENED TO READ A BOOK REVIEW LISTING THIS AS A PREQUEL TO TREASURE ISLAND WHICH I READ MANY YEARS AGO. I FOUND FLINT AND SILVER TO BE THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF BOOKS WRITTEN BY THE AUTHOR JOHN DRAKE AS A PREQUEL TO TREASURE ISLAND. TREASURE ISLAND IS A CHILDREN'S BOOK, BUT THIS SERIES WAS WRITTEN FOR ADULTS. THE BOOK CONTAINS ACTION, ADVENTURE, SEX, AND A SURPRISE ENDING THAT WILL LEAVE YOU LONGING FOR PIECES OF EIGHT WHICH IS THE SECOND BOOK IN THE SERIES. THE FIRST BOOKS LEADS INTO THE SECOND WHICH I ALSO READ, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THE THIRD. THE BOOK READS VERY FAST, AND WILL HOLD YOU IN SUSPENSE WITH THE SURPRISE ENDING. YOU WILL HAVE TO READ ALL THREE BOOKS TO COME TO A CONCLUSION OF THE STORY. VERY ENJOYABLE READING, AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! "

    " This was a rollicking good read--full of high seas adventure, chicanery, and mayhem. Can't wait to read the next two. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 1/13/2014

    " After 100 pages in, this one's just not doing it for me. I'm moving on to another selection. I was hoping for another "Pirate Latitudes" but this isn't it. There doesn't seem to be a discernible plot to drive the story along. Oh well, there are plenty of other books on my shelves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Johnson Tigafua | 12/31/2013

    " The book was about a pirate crew who were searching for treasure.To get there they had to face big hurricanes,whirl pools and an invasion from another ship.This story is full of love,violence and adventure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 11/24/2013

    " Clever concept (what was the backstory to Treasure Island?), but unfortunately not very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ramlaokami | 10/24/2013

    " Nearing the climactic scene. This book is intense and fabulous. Plus the author has powerful insight in the actions and psyche of people. I mean, underneath it all... "

    " John Drake has used some literary licence with this series based on Treasure Island, but I think he nailed it. Just a very good read, not too serious and characters larger than life but I enjoyed it......The second book is just as good and I just started the third...... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drew | 11/27/2012

    " awesome! sets up the drama that happened on the island where we find the treasure in Treasure Island! It's great to see all the characters from the org. interacting with each other when in their prime! Furthermore you witness firsthand Long John Silver losing his leg. Really imaginative author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abigail | 9/7/2012

    " Takes a long to get into. The flashbacks are a struggle at the start, but once you get to the main story it is worth it. Nearly stopped reading it but persevered because there was always something a bit likeable about long john silver. Good idea for a story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genny | 4/9/2012

    " Quite a fun read - now I should read Treasure Island all over again. The original is for tweens, but this is the adult version. If it was a movie it would be rated R. Fun summer book. "
