    Jake Cutler, teenage space pirate and rightful ruler of the lost planet of Altus, has to face down the might of the Interstellar Navy and prevent them from starting a war that will consume the galaxy To aid him on his quest he must venture onto the turf of the notorious Space Mafia and reclaim the fabled lost sword of Altus, which will give him the authority he needs All Jake wants is to find his missing father, but it falls on him to become a leader, and he s forced to grow up fast in this second volume in Huw Powell s popular Spacerjackers series.We learn much about the crew of the pirate vessel Dark Horse this time around, as secrets emerge about the famously grumpy Granny Leatherhead and other members of the crew, although I would have liked to have seen of lilac skinned castaway alien Nanoo this time around But the introduction of a sparky new female teenage pirate for Jake to cross wits with is tremendous fun And there are subtle hints as to the whereabouts and identity of Jake s missing father that will have to wait until the third volume to hopefully be resolved.This is an MG thrill ride that would appeal to any reader who wants to read a book that is mash up of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, or Pirates of the Caribbean, with an endearing teen hero Keep your eyes on the stars

    I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway.The Lost Sword just wasn t for me I found the introduction of so many characters all in the first chapter confusing right from the start, and unfortunately after reading further, I still couldn t keep them all straight However, I did like the idea of a book about space pirates, and I do think the target audience 8 12 would enjoy the plot I can see kids finding the abundance of characters less confusing and intriguing, especially Kid Cutler He seemed like the type of protagonist some kids would be able to connect with easily.Though this wasn t for me personally, I will be passing this on to my nieces and nephews and would recommend it to those with kids that like to be read to, or that like to read adventurous stories themselves.
