Reverend Adam MacKenzie is missing—maybe dead, and his missionary organization tasks Dr. Jake Cooper, famous archeologist and adventurer, along with his fourteen-year-old son, Jay, and younger daughter, Lila, to search the South Pacific and find him. When they arrive on the mysterious island of Aquarius, everything turns sideways. A man calling himself MacKenzie is alive, and running a creepy cult-like enclave of mostly westerners on the island. Suspicious, the Coopers investigate, but the ruthless Kelno imprisons them. Can Jake, Jay and Lila overcome their deranged enemy, his deadly poisonous insects, a gigantic whirlpool, a gargantuan reptile, and an island on a countdown to self destruction to find the real Reverend MacKenzie? Will they escape? And can they save the islanders from a madman before it’s too late?

The heroes unashamedly apply faith, prayer and scripture to find courage in the most extreme circumstances. Although written before the digital generation, and with an omniscient style slightly out of fashion, The Cooper Kids Adventure Series stands as a modern day Christian classic. With amazing plot twists, action, suspense and Frank Peretti’s signature spiritual battles behind the physical, this book is a great read for kids 10 and up. Great Series.
