We have a young, reluctant reader who is hooked on this series. What a wonderful blessing to have him look forward to reading time each day and constantly tell us what happened in his story. He really enjoys the characters and is starting to see a reality of why we choose to live a life for Jesus. Thank you for providing quality entertainment.
Jay and Lila Cooper join their father on a trip to the Island of Aquarius to rescue a missing missionary, Adam MacKenzie. When they arrive, they discover a man claiming to be Adam who has declared himself the leader of a bizarre colony. The man claims his people want to live in peace away from the modern world. But people keep dying. And when Jay, Lila, and their father start investigating, they become the next targets of the mysterious Moro-Kunda. And to make matters worse, the island is in big trouble. Earthquakes and erosion are tearing the island apart. Will the Coopers have enough time to find the real Adam MacKenzie before the island destroys itself? I enjoyed this Cooper Kids book almost more than the first. This one didn't have the political issues that the first had, which was the hardest part for my son to sit through. Peretti is such a creative author. The things he comes up with and the way he pulls them off amaze me. He has the mind of a movie director. I loved the action and the mystery in this one. It was exciting and the Cooper kids showed true courage and faith as they experienced the Island of Aquarius. Highly recommended for readers of all ages.
So much adventure! I was amazed at how much of it Peretti could fit in 160 pages. This has a great plot and describes the character's emotions so well. There are also a few suprises along the way (which I love!). I don't really care for so much description, but the tale is so exciting, it's definitely worth the time!
