Daniel, Jill, and Greg are the best of friends...peas in a pod....three musketeers....they are lucky to have one another living on such a small and secluded island like they do. An innocent stroll on the beach after a wicked storm changes things though, and not just about their friendship, but about everything on the whole island. Daniel, Jill, Greg, and Daniel's little brother Mikey go out to the beach to see what the storm may have washed up on shore. What they find is anything but usual, it is a man...what looks to be a dead man. When Daniel suddenly sees the man's eyes flash all the colors of the rainbow he tries to logically think it away as a reflection of the rainbow that seems to have led him to find the man. Soon Daniel knows something about this John Dee is not as it seems or should be. Quickly everyone loves him and seems to think only he knows what is right. Good things start to happen on the island, so they all think John is good luck. Daniel knows the truth and sees John for what he really is, but how can he get anyone to believe him when John seems to be so helpful? Soon Daniel is in the fight for the island peoples' lives and is desperately trying to get Jill and Greg back on his side. Will he get the help from his friends that he needs to find out what or who John Dee really is? Will it be in time to save the island and it's people? Will Daniel really want to accept the truth of John if and when he does find it?
This book was a very easy and quick read for me. It was really easy to get in to and was a book that once you started to read you were wanting to not stop until you could finish it. I just loved the way things unrolled, but there was still more than enough questions in your mind that you just had to read more. Every time I thought I may have the answer I was quickly proven wrong as I read on. The plot was one to suck you in from page one all the way to the ending page. It was quick moving, but had lots of details to make it a great book! The characters were also some of my all time favorites I think. They were easy to relate to, fun to read about, and just all around very likable characters. I found myself feeling for Daniel as he tried to get his Mom and friends to see John for what he was, which Daniel may not have known right away what that was, but was determined to find out. His determination is what made him a great friend. I also had to feel bad for him as he watched their group of three friends turn to different dynamics as Jill and Greg started looking at each other in a "more than friends" way. I also must say that I never saw in a million years the conclusion coming. I was going in a way different direction with my thinking and when the truth had light shed upon it I went, "Holy Cow! No Way!" It was wonderful to read a book that held my attention from start to end and that was able to completely surprise me when things came to light at the end. Amazing read!
