Described by Publishers Weekly as “a real page-turner,” The Colossus Rises narrates the extraordinary problem of thirteen-year-old Jack McKinley who is told he has six months to live. After being kidnapped and brought to a mysterious island, he learns that he and three other kids must set on a mission, planned by a secret organization, to retrieve seven lost magical Loculi that, if mixed correctly, can save his life. However, the Loculi are relics of lost civilization and haven’t been seen in thousands of years.
