LOVE!!!!!! I ADORED the 1st book of this series and I REALLY adore this book as well! I am slowly becoming obsessed with any book about the sea! From Atlantis to Captain Nemo, I’m in LOVE! And this series is soooooo good for kids!

This book is about Gabriel Nemo a great-great-GREAT grandson of Captain Nemo. In book 2 (this one) his mother is captured and they demand an ancient device that Captain Nemo made. The only option is to find his long lost ship… The Nautilus…

This book was sooooooo good and VERY action packed!!!! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time reading it!!!!!! From ocean to ocean. Danger to electric eel’s! Awesomeness to even more awesomeness!!!! This books has it all!!!!!!!  Fighting, ships sinking, recuses and danger. Ancient treasures, hidden ships, and daring rescues I give this book a 5 star for any kid!!!!!

Over all, I have no con’s. I mean there are deadly eel’s and sinking ships. But what 8 year old boy wouldn’t love it?!!?! Have a fantastic day! -The Young Llama Reader.
