Plunder is a story that begins on Charlie’s sixteenth birthday, when he gets into a fight with his abusive father and scares his dad out of the house. His mother then shows him a chest, something his real father wanted him to have, containing gear fit for a pirate! His mother then sends him to a nearby tavern, where he meets two of his father’s old mates. They tell him to board the ship named the Churchill if he wants to be like his father. On the way home Charlie sees his stepfather, and they get into another fight, but with a dagger in hand, it leaves Charlie a wanted man. Charlie realizes he has no choice but to live a life at sea as a privateer on the Churchill.
I really enjoyed the story, especially since it kept me hooked almost the entire book. There was always some battle or some new clue about Charlie’s father that could help Charlie find him. I liked the way the characters interacted too. Charlie and Mac’s dynamic was a good fit, with both friends complimenting the other’s strengths and covering each other’s weaknesses. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes pirates or the idea of a huge world with hidden secrets everywhere.
