Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4 Up A dead man on a raft in the South Pacific causes Dr. Jake Cooper and his teenage children to investigate the disappearance of Adam MacKenzie, a missionary to the island of Aquarius. There they find a colony of businessmen, college professors, housewives and the like, under the leadership of Kelno, a man claiming to have founded ``a brand-new world, a place free from crime, war, bloodshed, and greed''but who is actually a demented megalomaniac. After many breathless encounters with fire walking, human sacrifices to a giant snake, earthquakes and vicious African tiger flies, the Coopers rescue the missionary. Stereotyped characters include the brave, born-again American Christians versus the Satanic Kelso and his deluded followers. Implausible plot, improbable setting, undisciplined writing, but the headlong pace will keep readers turning pages. The Christian message that Kelno is the Antichrist of 2 Thessalonians and Revelation is stated unequivocally. Best for Christian schools and conservative church libraries. Pat Pearl, First Presbyterian Church Library, Martinsville, Va.
