Since accidentally joining the crew of pirate ship the Onion, the lives of twelve-year-old Brine Seaborne, her magician friend Peter and former-librarian Tom have been turned upside down. Having battled the world's most evil magician, Marfak West, fought off sea monsters and found Magical North, they thought they were prepared for whatever the eight oceans could throw at them . . . until they hatched the world's last-known dragon.

Desperate to find a family for their fire-breathing friend and hoping to unravel the secrets of Brine's mysterious past, the Onion and her crew sail into uncharted territory. Their aim, to find the legendary Western Island and its floating castle, where - legend has it - there be dragons . . .

The action is never less than rousing, and the pages turn as quickly as the Onion at full sail, but there' still lots of room for humour and proper character development too. Great fun.

    Having loved the first Accidental Pirates story, 'The Voyage to Magical North', I was excited to read the new book with the further adventures of Brine, Peter, Tom, Cassie O'Pia and the rest of the crew of the Onion. And I wasn't disappointed.It's another funny, exciting romp, with dragons, dinosaurs, a flying castle, ghostly apparitions, family and secrets. It expands the world and characters from the first book in interesting and sometimes unexpected directions. If you mixed The Princess Bride, Land that Time Forgot and Harry Potter and added a healthy dollop of its own unique humour and inventiveness, you'd end up with sometime like 'Journey to Dragon Island'.While mostly self-contained as a story, it left me wanting to spend more time with the characters and see where their adventures take them next, and leaves enough dangling questions that the third installment can't come quickly enough

    An excellent sequel to the first book, dragons and pirates are a winning combination! I really enjoyed it and it carried on the story of the characters well. Lovely to follow Boswell growing up too.

    This book is a romp! A raucous and rapturous, riotous romp. It is full of mirth, brimming with humour and has more adventure than you thought possible!Following on from the successful first instalment, ‘The Voyage to Magical North’, Brine Seaborne and her accidental pirate crew set off on The Onion in search of dragons and to discover her true home. The crew is quite a large one, and if you haven’t read the first book, you may want to start there to ensure you’re familiar with everyone. Amongst them, you’ll meet anxious Peter, who can do magic, a special almost spiritual kind of magic, but is nervous that it will all go wrong (because it has done in the past); and you’ll meet Tom, a librarian with many wise words.The plot moves quickly and is full of twists and turns; sometimes coming in quick succession, and always keeping you on your toes. There is a ghost; there are dragons, dinosaurs, volcanos, and at one point they fall off the end of the world. This really is life or death stuff, but it’s imbued throughout with a great deal of fun and Claire Fayers stays in total control as she steers us through quicksand, flesh-eating vines and that terrifying volcano.The characters are extremely likeable and despite the fantastical situations, their emotions and relationships are very real. At the heart of the book there are life-affirming messages of resilience, self-belief and friendship, as the crew work together to discover Brine’s true heritage.A brilliant comic-mystery-adventure that leaves us yearning for the final book in the trilogy.

    This is a fantastic follow up to 'Voyage to Magical North (The Accidental Pirates)', with even more action, mayhem and magic, twists and turns - it's all going on! There are new characters to meet, old ones to love, Trudi's cooking tips and recipes (never to be sniffed at - quite literally!), and so much more. I fell straight back into this world and willingly jumped back on the Onion, ready for a new adventure, and I wasn't disappointed. There is everything in here - from magicians and dragons, to floating castles and volcanic islands - there's rarely a quiet moment. If you haven't read the first book, that's ok but I would encourage you to do so that you can enjoy meeting everyone for the first time and see how we started on this voyage. I'm looking forward to book 3 already... ZT

    I think loved this book even better than the first one! It's an amazing, exhilerating romp of a story, with twists and turns and, as usual, Brine being sensible and brave and Peter not really listening and getting everyone in big trouble! I wish I lived in Claire Fayers imagination - it would be a very exciting and you'd never know what to expect next! Oh and can I just say baby dragons. BABY DRAGONS! What more do you need to know?!

    This is an amazing story, I loved reading this book. Several funny speeches were made, and the tale about the dragon war was very interesting. My favourite bit was a rescue from the floating castle. I felt like I was part of the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good adventure and lots of magical fun.By Grace age 8.
