The whole story is told from Maimun's point of view and he is relating the tale to a pirate captain. Having been found as a baby in some rubble and left with a druid until he was six years old Maimun knows nothing of his parents or how he really survived. It was not until he was six that he was even given a name which means twice lucky. The name suits Maimun well since he always seems to be ins some sort of trouble.
The Stowaway did end on a cliffhanger and I am curious to know more of Maimun's story. The writing was easy to read and the story flowed along comfortably.
