In 1587, 117 colonists disappeared from Roanoke Island, North Carolina, leaving behind not only unanswered questions, but a terrifying evil. *** Twelve year-old Jack Dahlgren hates his new home on Roanoke Island. Not only does his dad treat him like a baby, but also blames him for his sister's accident. He can't even make friends because no one wants to get to know the kid who lives in the creepy old Ellis house. They say it's haunted. Are they kidding? Jack's about to find out it's not a joke. Inside a mysterious cave in the bluff next to his house lives a terrifying evil, the same horrifying curse surrounding the disappearance of the Lost Colony in 1587...and it's hungry for blood. It's up to Jack to unravel the four-hundred-year-old mystery and save his family from the demon that haunts the island. With the help of an elusive Giant Mastiff and new-found friend Manny, a Native American shaman, Jack must discover what this devil is and find a way to put an end to its eternal hatred. But can he defeat it, before it destroys him?
