    The Latimer girls, their friends and CJ the parrot are on the hunt again. In this, the second book of the series, they are once again searching for their missing father supposedly lost at sea. While their cousin is working as a marine physicist on a classified mission on an oceanographic research vessel in China, they are enjoying their day at the market when Elizabeth notices a shop with little wooden boats exactly like her father used to make, right down to his unique signature graphic. Thus begins another rollicking adventure through the vortex, this time into the days when pirates ruled the China Sea. I love this young adult adventure series by Deborah Cannon, full of humour, murderous attacks, kidnapping and Elizabeth's feelings escalating between two young men, one from the past...or is it the future...one from her own time. Though she finds her father in the home of Cho, and escapes with him, he is again kidnapped. Will she find her father again? Will he know her if she does? Fraught with danger, this is a great adventure, mixing history with fantasy as their search for their father and Cho, a modern day pirate and his captor, goes deep into the pirate world of the greatest pirate on the China Seas in the 1800s, Cheng I Sao, Mrs. Cheng.The biggest problem facing our group, other than staying alive, is to avoid changing history. Lulu at home is keeping track of that on her I-phone and indeed history has been changed a few times; they must correct all the wrongs. Great characters, along with CJ the irascible but irresistible parrot and the mysterious Daniel, all in all, this is an exciting storyline, built on fact and fiction both. This book has all the elements of excitement for young adults, early teens, and adults.

    4.5 stars. An exciting imaginative pirate adventure. A clever and new story to enjoy. I usually never start with book 2 in a series but since I won it through goodreads I made an exception. I do wish I had read book 1 first. I loved book 2 so much I will rectify that. I really really enjoyed tThe Jade Pirate and will recommend this author. And I will also be looking forward to more adventures in this series.

    Elizabeth, CJ the crazy parrot and Elizabeth friends have to learn about the past to save the future. I really enjoyed this book. It could be hilarious at time, and to be in the brain of her friends and what they could come up with was like HOW IN THE WORLD DID THEY COME WITH THAT? You will enjoy reading this ! China in those time was a real different life than what we understand.I want to thank the author and Goodreads First Reads giveaway program for this book that I won.

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.I began this book and couldn't put it down. The characters are well defined and relatable. You are endeared to them and feel as if you are part of the group. I did not read the first book in the series and though the book referred to things that occurred in that book it did not leave this one lacking. I am going back to the first book just out of curiosity. If you like pirates and time travel this is a book for you.

    Once upon a time a teenager dived into a vortex chasing an elusive hunk of a pirate and ended up in the pirate past only to learn that she was not only descended from a pirate but also a pirate hunter, and that her destiny was to play matchmaker to history’s pirates. Meanwhile, who was her own true love? That teenager of course is Elizabeth. THE JADE PIRATE is the sequel to THE PIRATE VORTEX and book two in my Elizabeth Latimer, Pirate Hunter series.

    his book picks up where The Pirate Vortex left off. This time she is off to find both parents. Rumour has it that her father is still alive. The book is exciting. We have pirates, sword fights, captures, miraculous escapes, and a little bit of a love story thrown into the mix. Again Deborah Cannon's imagination takes flight and I was glad to go for the ride.

    I received this book through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.I don't know if I would have been more positive about this book if I'd read the first one--honestly I don't really care enough to go back and read the first one. I didn't enjoy this one.I felt as though the storyline and action was a little too choppy. There were too many "OMG, how are we going to get out of this?!" moments resolved within a couple of pages only to be followed by another "impossible" sitaution. There was a lot of stuff that just didn't make sense--yes, I know time travel is fantastic and fictional but seriously they were able to use their cell phones in the past? And a lot of the relationship drama just seemed unnecessary and superfluous.I also felt that the story vacillated between being very juvenile to dealing with some fairly adult topics/situations. I couldn't really tell if this was meant to be a book for teens or not.Overall just not worth my time.

    The parrot is a riot! I want to start off with that. Can you write a book about the parrot? Overall I guess the book just wasn't for me. Perhaps it is intended for a YA audience. However, in hindsight, maybe not since there is a lot of violence. But who knows what these kids are into nowadays.I will say the editing was great. Sometimes I get real distracted if there is lot of bad grammar and it is obvious it hasn't been edited. This was very good in this regard. The story was interesting if you like time travel. And I also I think it would be just fine if you like fantasy and such.

    This tale of oceanic time travel is the second book in a series and I would suggest reading "The Pirate Vortex" first so you have the background information to make book two easier to follow. In this book Elizabeth must travel back in time to ensure no one alters the past for future financial gain.
