 “Adams’ pirate-centric story teems with entertaining bits of magic. . . A well-crafted, supernatural pirate tale with a capable, young hero.” ~KIRKUS REVIEWS

 “Avalina Jones and the Eye of the Storm is an action-packed fantasy. . . This novel is packed with creativity. Lori Adams has outdone herself in describing the magical ship and all of its components. . . I really enjoyed the story of Avalina Jones and her pirate adventure . . . any Hogwarts fans might find themselves equally enthralled by Avalina and her time aboard the Aquatiery.” ~SAN FRANCISCO BOOK REVIEW

 “The book has mystery and excitement and a very entertaining plot I had a hard time putting it down I liked it so much. I really liked this book. I have never heard about anything like this. The idea of a pirate school ship is a brilliant one.” ~NETGALLEY REVIEWER, KIERAH K.


When a young girl learns she is the Last Heir of the infamous pirate Davy Jones, she is whisked away to begin life aboard an enchanted schoolship for Pirate Heirs where danger and excitement awaits.

Contemporary kids who happen to be Heirs of the most villainous and celebrated pirates in history. Superstitions, mysteries, curses, secrets, strange ocean creatures, undead pirates, and seafaring legends will thrill middle-grade readers in this rollicking, globe-trotting adventure. 

Avalina Jones has never heard of Sea Magic, flying dinghies, Pirate Heir schoolships, phantom islands, undead pirates, or creatures called Half Ones. But when a beautiful woman arrives in a swirling waterspout, Avalina's life explodes with more adventures than she can possibly imagine. She takes her rightful place aboard a giant Pirate Heir schoolship teeming with Heirs of the world's most nefarious pirates.

Raised as a Landlubber, Avalina quickly realizes bizarre and danger are normal aboard Pirate Heir schoolships—food fights back, school supplies giggle or explode in your face. And not everyone can be trusted.

When Avalina is accused of a terrible crime, she must prove her innocence or risk being banished from the schoolship forever—and this in the middle of a crucial Treasure Hunt!

Avalina races to unlock secrets of the ship and makes a dangerous discovery that threatens everyone aboard. With the help of her deckmates, Avalina draws closer to the truth, unaware that a deeper, darker fate awaits.

Worlds collide for middle-grade readers who will love the fast-paced thrills, colorful characters, secrets, legends, and the interplay of fantasy and reality in Avalina Jones and the Eye of the Storm. Author Lori Adams expertly delivers a story that is timeless, bringing together elements of sea lore, magic, and adventure. The first book in a seven-book series, Avalina Jones and the Eye of the Storm, is a romping tale for middle graders who are searching for the next enduring fantasy classic.
