I seem to be in a reading pattern - save the planet!
Jack's parents are not who they seem, and they are both killed while saving Jack from an alien menace. Jack's world is turned upside down, not knowing why his life has changed so quickly to an unknown future. What is 'firestorm'?. Why has Jack been chosen to find it? Jack must cope with his new life, new power, and trying to save the last virgin reef with all its wonderful life forms by trusting only himself and a telepathic dog. Can hardly wait for book 2.
