Picking up where The Cannibals left off, The Castaways finds Tom Tin and four other convicts drifting on the ocean when they come upon an empty ship. Shortly after, they also encounter two men who appear to be refugees from the abandoned vessel. But these two are not what they seem, and they become an obstacle for Tom as he travels home.

    " By far the best of the three books. The end was exciting and it lasted awhile too, none of the usual puting all the good stuff in the last chapter. Almost 5 stars. "

    " Loved this book! It had an exellent ending and I was finally able to read the end of Mr.Goodfellow, all I have now left to say is good job Tom! You have been able to pull through until the end and now are free to travel seas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 3/14/2012

    " Continuation of a look at early to mid 1800's England and the shipping. Fictional but an eye opener. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/21/2012

    " This book was exciting and adventurous. I loved all the turns in the book, all the traitors and stuff like that. It was a slower start than the second book, but it was still really good. Great finish to the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 12/12/2011

    " I really loved this series. I don't know why it has such poor reviews. Very adventurous and I loved the characters. I normally hate books that take place on sailing ships because they are boring, not this book. Very entertaining! "

    " I may have enjoyed this more if I'd read the two before it: The Convicts and the Cannibals. I think I'll catch up later. "

    " I really didn't like this one, probably because I hadn't read the other books by this author, and I'm not used to this kind of writing. Interesting plot though. "
