Kenneth and Raymond encountered demons in the forbidden basement. All is not what it seems in the manor house! The angels are fiercely fighting for the children while the demons are raging against them at every turn.
The angels inform the children they will be leaving the manor house soon for an unknown destination.
Pastor Finley and Jonathan Judge will unknowingly play a vital role in getting the children to their new location and the start of their mission from God.
The inhabitants in this new location are demons, along with the occasional pirates that happen to find the island. The most ruthless pirate that has ever laid foot on the island is one known as Captain Samuel Slayer Johnson, a once respected naval officer, then life happened.
Captain Mize has agreed to help Pastor Judge build their new village. The captain of course has ulterior motives, he knows that pirates have been on the island, which only means one thing, buried treasure.

The Starfish Island Gang is a self-proclaimed gang of five kids living in quiet Shell Cove on Starfish Island while away their carefree days on the island's white beaches, building sandcastles and riding the crystal-blue ocean's waves as they crash ashore. One day, they decide to go exploring. They enter an old abandoned beach house and discover they have left behind the idyllic world of sunlit sand and entered a strange world of unfamiliar voices, disappearing people, and wily demons.
The author, Brenda Mize Garza, draws together two disparate worlds-the familiar realm inhabited by people with faith in God and the domain of demons whose plans oppose the Lord. She explores what happens when these two realms touch down in the lives of five young people.
The kids' curiosity leads them into the terrain of a longstanding battle. They come to appreciate what Ms. Martha, the town librarian, tells them about the reasons Paul the apostle had in mind when he counseled the Christians in Ephesus, writing "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."
The Starfish Island Gang promises to delight it's readers with the tale of the companionship of five curious young people and to challenge them with the ramifications of discovering a place where the kingdoms of good and evil cross paths and the ensuing conflict leaves no person unchanged.
