From the creator of this summer's Sci-Fi Network TV Show EUREKA, Andrew Cosby! A team of researchers drift on the ocean, lost, in their quest for an enigmatic island that's never been explored. Washing on its shores, they find a dense, terrifying jungle populated with animal and plant life that has evolved along a completely different path. What secret does this isle hold?
