The Rainbow Man
By: P.B. Kane
When a trio of teenagers discover a body washed up on the beach after a storm, it’s one of the most exciting things ever to happen on the island of Shorepoint. And as the man in question slowly recovers, he befriends the inhabitants of this small fishing community one by one, apparently bringing prosperity with him. But soon the tide turns and the blessing becomes a curse for Shorepoint. Only Daniel Routh suspects the source of the island’s woes, but little does he realize that he’s now involved in one of the most ancient conflicts of all time, one that might decide the fate not only of Shorepoint, but of the world.
