Trespassing into forbidden territory, sixteen-year-old Cyrus LongBones discovers that his small island is in fact a giant, fossilized turtle shell. With the villager's obsession of working the earth, the skeleton collapses in on itself, killing Cyrus' brother and destroying his village. Unjustly blamed for the disaster, Cyrus is forced to flee his crumbling island and sail out to sea in search of a new home. When Cyrus learns that a creature known as the Sea Zombie is at the root of his brother's death and his people's corruption, he must make a decision that could forever cost him his soul. Will Cyrus risk all to rescue his village, or will he abandon them to save his own skin?
Welcome to book 1 in the Cyrus LongBones adventure.
