The Brockways and the Giffords return to Komodo Island to find a way to undo the shape-shifting curse that plagues their families. Except for his face, hands, and feet, Luke is covered with eagle feathers from a previous shift, making it difficult to travel inconspicuously. On the last leg of their perilous journey, the old cargo ship taking them directly to Komodo Island has dangers lurking both onboard and in the rough waters. Seasick and miserable, Luke explores the lowest level of the ship and finds a creature that has been captured illegally. His efforts to save its life further complicate their voyage. When they finally reach the island, Luke, Austin, and Megan must find the old Medicine Woman before they can search for the fabled pink Komodo. But they must hurry, because if she dies, the secret to breaking the curse will die with her. Lost in the hills of the island, the trio is surrounded by twenty hungry Komodos. They must use all their resources to stay alive. In a dramatic showdown, Luke must defeat an old enemy to save his family and his friends… but in doing so he may remain cursed forever. Is Luke doomed to a life with feathers?
