Kitto's adventure continues in the suspenseful sequel to The Dagger Quick , which School Library Journal called a " quest perfect for landlubbers and pirate aficionados alike."

On the high seas of the Caribbean in the 1600s, a twelve-year-old boy, Kitto, stands wrongly accused of his father's murder and is forced into adulthood too quickly as he tries to prove his innocence. After a brutal shark attack, Kitto must take refuge on a forsaken island that holds a store of valuable nutmeg, with its power to make men as rich as kings.

When he encounters the notorious Alexandre Exquemelin, known as X, he discovers a dark secret about his own past and identity. Will the events of Kitto's past determine his fate, or will he have the courage to forge his own destiny?

A tale of friends and fiends, good and evil, pirates and predators, and the thrill of the high seas, The Dagger X is an exciting adventure and classic story of the search for manhood and identity.
