User Summary: Since your parents are marine biologists, you get to visit an island in the South Pacific, where you end up battling Dirge, the fear-inducing Decepticon.
Demian's Thoughts: This is about equal in quality to the previous volume, being a very short and unimpressive (though passable) adventure. I could have done without the cheesy portrayal of the volcano-worshipping islanders and the lame attempts at making Beachcomber seem cool, but my sensibilities are largely intact. The only thing I can say I particularly liked about the book was the slimy monster on the cover (I'm a sucker for slimy monsters), but at least the whole experience wasted less than half an hour of my life.
