The Dark Frigate seemed a little slow in places, but turned out to be okay. It is set in the 17th century London where Philip Marsham flees after a terrible accident and signs on with the Rose of Devon, a dark frigate bound for Newfoundland. During the voyage, the frigate is seized by pirates and Philip is forced to join them.

It won the Newbery Medal award.

The story develop very slow at the begining. The action start to pick up the middle where the character begin to develop and the stories run fluently.
