(This is the 1st in a series)
Sarah isn’t happy about her Dad remarrying and then bringing his new wife Yvonna and her two boys Marco (12) and Nacho (11) to live with them. Things are even worse when her Dad decides to take all of them on their honeymoon to a tropical island near Fiji.
The plane trip is long, the ‘luxury’ yacht he’s hired far from luxurious, and her seasickness tops off the worst ‘holiday’ ever. But things are about to get a whole lot worse. A storm is coming – fast. They hunker down below deck as the skipper tries to take the boat through it. But when the seas calm and the sun comes out, the truth is there for all to see. They are shipwrecked on an island, their skipper gone and the yacht wrecked beyond repair. Can it get any worse? Yes! Strange creatures, screams in the night and a weird red orb in the sky. Will they survive?
What a fantastic start to a series! I thought this would be another shipwreck, get to know each other story, but it goes far beyond that and more. This series continues with Lost, Trapped, and Found.
