They arrive at their destination, Marawa Island, filled with hope for rescue and reprieve. But at first glance the island appears to be solely populated by birds ...Perhaps the Apostle's dire warnings about the fall-out of the Tribulation were true after all? As Maryam and Joseph experience all the topsy-turvy misunderstandings and sexual tension first love entails, the antagonism between Maryam and Lazarus reaches explosive proportions. But when disaster brings the crushing realisation that time is now against them, all four must decide just who they can risk turning to for help ...A stunning seqel to The Crossing, the Best YA fiction category winner of the 2010 NZ Post Children's Book Awards.
