The Colossus Rises

Peter Lerangis

Jack McKinley is imaginative and curious, always ready for an adventure. He finds more than that when he and three friends are kidnapped and brought to a remote island. He learns they all have a rare gene that gives them unique skills but can cause death if they don’t find the designated cure. The cure is to be found in ancient kingdoms, beginning with the heart of Atlantis. As they travel to the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World they discover deceit and challenges that hinder their mission. Filled with tension, quick action, and high stakes, this page-turner is the first of a series from an author of the 39 Clues series. Ages 8-10
