Praise for Shipwreck Island

“Sunken treasure, a beautiful woman, deceit, lies, intrigue, and death. What could be better. In Shipwreck Island, James B. McPike has put together a grand adventure with outstanding characters and a strong, well-conceived story line filled with action and more action and, of course, danger and death. As the events unfold and the danger increases, readers will find themselves drawn into the tale, mentally visualizing the ship, the island, and the elements that have to somehow be survived. I highly recommend this book to all action and adventure lovers.” –Readers’ Favorite

 Winner of the Literary Titan Book Award for January 2019

“I liked that the book included a map that showed the area of the different shipwrecks and their location in relation to each other. This allowed me to better visualize the setting of the story, which I found helpful. Overall, I found this to be an entertaining story that puts compelling characters in perilous situations set in exotic locations.” –Literary Titan
