This action-packed pirate fantasy adventure for the middle grade set starts out with a bang: Dean Seaborne, a 13 year old self-described "pirate spy," is being dunked in a cage in the ocean . . . after the pirates have thrown chum in the water to attract sharks. The pirate captain, One-Eyed Jack, is bent out of shape because Dean tried to run away. After sufficient groveling and promise-making, One-Eyed Jack has Dean hauled back up, suitably chastened, and sends him off on another spy mission. A [...]

I devoured this book. I didn’t want to put it down, and whenever I wasn’t reading it, I wanted to get back to it. It’s been a while since a book has affected me like that. I finished it the day I began it, staying up as late as necessary to get to the end. In a word, the book is fun. It’s got monsters, villains, and some pretty cool action scenes, but underneath all the tropes you think you’ve seen before, plot twists to keep pulling you along through the book. It’s marketed as middl [...]

An unforgettable adventure on the high seas. Packed with humor, some danger, action, and a 13 year old hero you won't soon forget. This is the perfect beginning for a series you'll definitely want to read.4.5 stars FULL REVIEW mundiekids/2017/0
Received as an e-galley from Net Galley.A pirate adventure fantasy with a 13-year old hero, this new series is intended for tween readers. Dean Seaborne (the last name signals he's an orphan), has been raised to be One-Eyed Jack's spy: He joins the crews of sailing ships in order to identify those carrying rich cargo for the pirate king to raid. Until he is sent to spy on Gentleman Jim, captain of one of Jack's 19 other pirate ships, Dean doesn't understand his moral responsibility for the death [...]
What I liked: I loved that the characters were given clear motivations for how they act, as well as a background that I could understand and connect with the characters actions. The Pirate King, also known as One-Eyed Jack, was a character who I loved to hate because, while having a clear motivation to himself and not just being the flat antagonist of the story, One-Eyed Jack was a nasty character who was ruthless to those who crossed him. I really liked that because the way it was done it was p [...]
Read my full review on my blog: tamaraniac/post/1108155817The Lost Prince by Matt Myklusch was really, really, really, REALLY good. The premise was great. The plot was great and well executed. The main character was great and the perfect blend of awkward teenager and overly confident idiot. But, I have to say the greatest part was (what else) the setting. The pirate ships. The magical island of Zenhala. All of it was very cool, well described and so, so imaginative and wonderful.I also loved all [...]
*dances out of joy*PIRATE BOOK. PIRATE BOOK. PIRATE BOOK. What a fantastic and interesting book! I love pirates. Love them. There are not enough pirates in the book world and I am SO happy that readers now have this novel to appease the pirate genre!I loved the pacing in this book. It's super fast and there's never a dull moment. Lots of shipwrecks and fighting and gold, everything that I wanted to see in this book. I also loved the characters. Right away you're rooting for them and you want to [...]
I loved this book. It was so much fun. I am going to send one to every child in our family. It is that good. That said this book is truly for all ages and I am off to read the next one. Great job.
This was a fine book - not something I particularly enjoyed, but I could see middle school boys giggling to themselves while reading the various action scenes. A young boy raised by pirates - lots of action, lots of cool toys (skateboarding, surfing, some sort of sail you wear to fly on the wind). A little romantic interest, but very PG. There are, however, lots of deaths and fighting and one torture scene (though also still PG - no gory details, over very quickly).
Actual rating: 3/3.5It's the story of a young pirate spy who has to come back with gold in order to gain his freedom from the Pirate King.Overall, it was an okay story. Most of it read like a kids movie and was about as predictable, but for a fun pirate story, it was okay.

I did not like this book as much as I thought I would. Waverly turned out to be a damsel in distress, and that kind of ruins it for me. The story kind fell apart at the end, and it was slightly off, as if the author was doing something else while writing. It just didn't come together for me.
This is an exciting and well-written novel that the entire family can enjoy. Matt Myklusch crafts a boy-friendly plot with a lot of action and one conflict after another. The twists in the story will keep adults as well as older readers engaged. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could and will be using excerpts in my literacy programs for children plus using the plot structure as a stellar example in my writing workshops.Dean Seaborne is a boy pirate. Though he would give anything to have a [...]
Shiver me timbers! I really liked this book a lot! No, actually, my two sons and I loved Dean Seaborne, the Lost Prince! This swashbuckling first book in the Seaborne series by Matt Myklusch had us gripped from page one. Yep, right from the start, the excitement and thrill had begun. And it didn't end until on the last page. Imagine 13-year old Dean Seaborne, a pirate, er, a spy working for Pirate King One-Eyed Jack. He was taken by the Black Fleet, branded by Scurvy Gill and had worked with the [...]
5 STARS This is a exciting adventure, with pirates, a fabled island where gold grows on trees, trials to prove worthiness of royal, and pirate battle. You don't want to stop reading. You can never guess where the story is going to go next. It is also a clean read. The characters are a good mix of bad guys you hate, bad guys that you love to root for and some you just love. Dean Seaborne is the main character that the story centers around. Dean is 13 year old. He tried running away from the Pirat [...]
I loved this book. Adventure, swashbuckling, and a mysterious island. All the best of pirate lore along with young Dean Seaborne, a pirate spy. Wait a minute, a pirate spy. My first thought was, what the heck is a pirate spy. Simply put, it`s a pirate who spies on other pirates. Dean has been a pirate for as long as he can remember, and that`s not all that long considering that he`s only thirteen. He doesn`t like how he`s forced to live, but can`t imagine a way out. His newest job is to infiltra [...]
Dean Seaborne has spent all his thirteen years with pirates. Under the orders of One-Eyed Jack, he infiltrates ships and then rats them out to pirate crews. This time promises to be no different. One-Eyed Jack has a pirate who isn't paying his full dues, so Dean goes in to figure out why (and to make sure he delivers). But things go from bad to worse when Dean ends up on the legendary island of Zenhala, about to pull off the scam of his life. If he can survive long enough to collect his freedom [...]
SEABORNE: THE LOST PRINCE by Matt Myklusch is the first book in a new adventure series featuring a teen boy pirate.More of a spy than a pirate, young Dean Seaborne is forced to work for the evil pirate king One-Eyed Jack. As an orphan, Seaborne becomes caught between two worlds as he tries to decide whether to continue his pirating ways or side with a beautiful girl from a mythical island. The fast-paced, swashbuckling action will appeal to the tween audience. The addition of a sea dragon will e [...]
Received from: Egmont USAReceived Via: NetGalley THE REVIEWWhy this book?It sounded like a book for meWhat I thoughtThis was a fun book full of adventure .I love a good pirate book. It was also filled with fun characters. This was an interesting story and at times had me at the edge of my seat.The Author knew how to bring each setting to life I could picture everything like I was there. Overall a good read
Surprised, surprised and surprised again.i love tales of pirates, but i must say i didn't see this ending coming.wowd i was astounded to hear this was the same author of one of the first children's novels i reade writing has matured so much since jack Blank. (don't get me wrong, i still love those stories, but it felt like i was reading a completely different author.)Great adventure! can't wait for the next one.
I loved this soooo much. I love a pirate book anyway, a pirate book that's also about storytelling and lies is an added bonus. But the stand-out quality of this book is that the author does not patronize his readers. A complex plot with interesting vocabulary and no-one feels the need to define those words in the text. Totally brilliant.
This was a very good book I thought. I read it allowed to my kids (6 year old daughter and 7 year old son) every night before bed over the course of about a month and a half(they fall asleep quicklylol) but they loved it. My son is hoping for the author to come out with more books about what happens to Dean and the Princess!!! I found the book to be pretty good myself also.
Wow, this book was really good! I have read a few pirate books before, and I loved them, so I'm not at all surprised that this was no exception. Exciting, fun, and fast-paced, this book was an adventure! Dean Seaborne is a great character, and I enjoyed reading about him. I look forward to seeing what adventures lie in store of Dean and his crew!
This is a Peter Pan meets Jennifer Nielsen's The False Prince swashbuckling pirate adventure. Dean is a thirteen-year old pirate spy & con artist who is believed to be the kidnapped prince from a kingdom in the Bermuda Triangle. A plot driven story with plenty of action, lots of betrayals, and acts of heroism.
Very cute story with entertaining and strong characters.
Fantastic children's book! Lots of fun. My 10 year old is hoping book 2 comes out soon.
I will definitely recommend this to my younger teens at the library. It's a page turner and should hook even the more reluctant readers.
Bookaday #161. Mistaken identity meets Robin Hood style pirates in the Bermuda Triangle. Lots of swashbuckling adventures.
