They destroyed the mighty Mayan Empire. What hope for a few shipwrecked survivors?

A South American cruise. It should have been a once in a lifetime experience. And it was. But not in the way they imagined. Barely surviving a horrific shipwreck, the remaining passengers have to try and cope with finding food, water, shelter, let alone the constant arguments.

And then there are the bugs. Not the sort that you squish and then get on with your day. Oh no. Toe biters, pond skaters, assassin bugs and harvestmen that drop down on top of their victims – all of these could be found in your garden. But on this lost island they are all at least twenty times their normal size. Trapped on an island with a six metre long giant centipede with armoured plates was not on the cruise itinerary. Now all they want is to get off – without being squished!

“Anyone pack the bug spray?”

BUG ISLAND is suitable for anyone aged 8 years or older.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

From the first page on, R.G. Cordiner manages to build up suspense at a lightning quick pace and not letting the reader take a breath… The fog is thick… the bugs are huge… and the humans are terrified… There are a couple of surprise twists in the story and the ending had me gasping in shock.

An excellent book for readers of all ages!!


I can’t believe how much I enjoyed it. You think its scary when the fog starts rolling in, wait until its gone. I enjoyed it so much that I hope that there will be a second book in the works. What would happen if the bugs got to the mainland. That is a scary thought…..


I am always looking for books to recommend. This is one I will be sure to add to my list. The story sort of reminded me of Jurassic Park but without the gore. The sound effects definitely add to the story suspense.
