The Lion of Sole Bay is the book that turns the Strong Winds trilogy into a series. Its central character is not Donny but the younger, more imaginative, less obviously competent, Luke. Luke has been longing for an adventure of his own ever since Donny told him the story of Treasure Island two years ago in The Salt-Stained Book. Here he has one - for real. Does he like it? I'm not so sure. He's joined by Angel, who needs friends and Helen who simply wants to go home.
