At the end of Compass South, twins Cleo and Alex were been reunited with their father, Mr. Dodge, on the ship Anita after a battle with the pirate Worley. Now, Cleo explains to Dodge and Alex that the pocket knife and pocket watch they have are keys to a treasure. So begins Knife's Edge, the second installment in Hope Larson's Four Points series—another high-speed story of treasure, family, and of course adventure on the high seas.
Hope Larson’s books are DELIGHTFUL. Knife’s Edge did not disappoint. It was full of action and drama. Watching the characters develop is interesting, too. The only downside of the Four Points books specifically is that they are so SHORT. I can’t wait to read the next book. I’ll have to reread 1&2 to hold me over.
