Perfect for fans of the Percy Jackson and Seven Wonders series, Island of the Sun is the second book in an epic, fast-paced middle grade adventure trilogy by acclaimed author Matthew J. Kirby.

Eleanor and her friends have shut down the mysterious Concentrator in the Arctic, but their mission is far from over. The earth is still spinning out of its orbit and growing colder by the day. Their only chance is to find the other Concentrators embedded around the world and deactivate them before it's too late.

But doing so won't be easy. The Global Energy Trust has branded Eleanor, her mother, and their friends international terrorists and is tracking their every move. The G.E.T. will stop at nothing to harness the power of the Concentrators in order to preserve the select few people its leaders deem worthy, and Eleanor is soon forced to ask herself whether it's worth risking the lives of the entire human race for a slim chance to save it.

Island of the Sun is the second book in the Dark Gravity Sequence trilogy. If you haven’t read the first book, The Arctic Code, then I would definitely recommend reading that first. It’s a great trilogy, filled with action and adventure. In this book, Eleanor and her group have yet to complete their mission to save the world from the terrible ice age that is consuming the world. Now that they’ve shut down the concentrator in the Arctic, they have to pick their next destination, all the while running from the GET. They’ve been labeled as global terrorists, and face danger constantly. Rifts in their group and a plot that twists every which way keep the novel moving forward quickly and create a sense of urgency. Eleanor is a great main character to follow, creative and exciting. I would definitely recommend this trilogy to readers around the late elementary school ages.
