Doug and Becca MacKenzie's search for their missing parents must wait; but what part did the mysterious Guild play in their disappearance? And what is their uncle, Captain MacKenzie, really searching for? Will the strange riddle Doug and Becca unearth be the key to the dark secrets of the Guild and a means to escaping the island?

The second book of this about the adventures of Becca & Doug, a brother and sister pair who folks are dead (or missing) and were members of a "secret" society, the Guild of Specialists. Great read and I wish the third would come out already!! ( )

My 10 year old really enjoyed this book and Red Jericho, the first book in this series. He is, however, disappointed it is taking so long for the 3rd book in this trilogy to be issued.

Doug and Becca MacKenzie are back and are moving further into the world of The Guild of Specialists. The research ship, Expedient, already damaged in the off Wenzi Island, is hit by a typhoon. The captain, their uncle, Fitzroy MacKenzie, is forced to beach his ship in a secluded bay on a small island. They discover they are not alone. The two teens and the rest of the Expedient’s crew once again fighting their nemesis, Pembleton-Crozier, with yet more of his evil army, this time consisting of Kalaxx warriors.
On this island the siblings find skeletal remains and unearth a riddle linked to a 1533 painting. This riddle may hold the key to the Guild’s secrets and help them locate their parents.
Time is short, however, as the group tries to repair the ship and working out a way to thwart the Kalaxx and their cohorts before they themselves are found out. The secret, and the power that comes from knowing it, must not fall into the wrong hands. Pembleton-Crozier, and those with him, would use it for corrupt purposes. The Guild members are outnumbered and outgunned ( )

Get ready for Book II of the thrilling, novelty-packed Guild of Specialists trilogy.

After being lashed by a typhoon on their uncle's ship, THE EXPEDIENT, intrepid siblings Becca and Doug MacKenzie want nothing more than to escape from the volcanic island on which they're stranded and resume the search for their parents. But their uncle, Captain MacKenzie, seems more concerned with the missing gyrolabe than their missing mother and father, and he refuses to discuss the role the mysterious Guild of Specialists played in their disappearance. As the formidable Kalaxx warriors close in on their hidden cove, Becca and Doug unearth a riddle linked to a 1533 painting, which may hold the key to the Guild's dark secrets and to finding their parents. But how can they possibly solve the puzzle and escape with their lives — before their enemies attack?
