Last Voyage a the Vengeferth by G.A. Schindler is a young adult adventure novel that would appeal most to an audience made up of primarily young adults with an interest in pirate adventures. Captain Werthman charged Wil DeVoe, the first mate on the Vengeferth, with writing down the story of the last voyage of their ship. Wil DeVoe’s account begins when a young stowaway dies during an initiation and the captain swears vengeance on behalf of the dead stowaway. Wil DeVoe uses the time between adventures to share tales of the ship that occurred in the past and short stories about life on the Vengeferth, such as how the crew handles the treasure taken from ships. Are you ready for Wil DeVoe to take you aboard the Vengeferth for a pirate adventure?

Last Voyage a the Vengeferth by G.A. Schindler has an interesting writing style that the author affectionately calls 'piratese.' It did take me a while to get into the flow as the entire book was written in 'piratese,' which is not proper English. However, once I got into it, I found that it really gave the book a piratical feel and made it easy for me to become invested in the story. My favorite aspect of this book was the fact that it dropped me right into Wil DeVoe’s telling of the story, instead of boring me with unneeded information. Overall, I have to say that I enjoyed this adventure tale as an adult, but I would have loved it as a young adult!
