The Fountain of  Youth

On a distant space station, Jack has a story to tell. A story of adventure and danger—a tale he has clung to for far too long. Jack recounts his time as a United States Marine during World War II when he and a small group of shipwreck survivors got stranded on a tropical island paradise. Though the island offered a safe haven from the horrors of drifting aimlessly out at sea, within its beautiful and lush landscape, it hides a terror all of its own.

Behind every tree is danger, every canyon, death, and deep inside the remnants of a long-dead volcano, an ancient secret lies hidden—a secret that has been buried for millions of years. When the group of survivors encounters a detachment of Japanese soldiers, it is up to Jack to keep them safe and rid the island of this enemy menace. Together, with the love of his life, Margaret “Blue” Carter, he learns what it means to lead and feels the consequences of every decision he makes.

Will Jack and Blue be able to save them all or were they doomed the moment they stepped foot on this mysterious island paradise?
