Book one of the Adventures of Jonathan Moore series: Warship Poseidon.

Homeless and alone on the streets of London in 1800, 12-year-old Jonathan Moore survives a harsh and dangerous world using courage, intelligence, and determination. His dismal fate changes dramatically one day after he is abducted by a gang and pressed into service aboard HMS Poseidon, a 44-gun fighting warship of the British Royal Navy. However, there is more to the event than just a change of address.

How is it that some members of the crew, including the Captain, already know his name? Why do the officers seem to favor him above the other new crew members? As Jonathan endeavors to solve these mysteries, he is thrust into a daring mission to recover a hidden treasure on a remote Caribbean isle.

Unfortunately, the crew and officers of the Poseidon are not the only ones searching for the prize. In a desperate race across the Atlantic, Jonathan is pitted against sword-wielding spies, engages in terrifying ship-to-ship battles and in the end, must match his wits and courage against a ruthless and cunning French Captain and his infamous 74-gun battleship!

Warship Poseidon is the winner of the Adventure Writers Clive Cussler Grandmaster Award and the Independent Author Network’s Action-Adventure Book of the Year and is a Chanticleer Five-Star Best Book.
