Summary: Jack West, Lily, and Zoe are back with a new adventure as Jack's farm is attacked one summer afternoon by Chinese troops. Jack also recieves a message from Wizard telling them to get out and bring certain books with them to help with finding the 6 Sacred Stones. After their escape Jack finds out that not only has Wizard been inprisioned by the Chinese and tortured but the world may be facing a coming disaster the likes that have never been seen. With Lily and Alby's help Jack has to set off to find the 6 sacred stones and save the world.
Jack West, Jr.- a former Australian special ops soldier and now the adoptive father of Lily. A man of many talents and traits but none as great as his loyalty to his friends.
Lily West,- Jacks adoptive daughter who is the daughter of the famed Oracle. She is one of two people in the world who can read the ancient language of Toth, without which Jack and the others would be totally lost.
Other Interesting Information:
This is a story with several adults as main characters but also two children. I think that Lily is probably the most important character even if she is under represented in this story. Without Lily's ability to read and speak Toth, the whole mission would be over before it was even started. I think this book also shows how well adults can interact with children without talking down to them but treating them as equals.
