Paden wakens to find his lover Track is in bed with him while a tsunami warning is blasting. Track tells Paden they are needed to decipher the mystery of a young man who has broken a sacred taboo and the gods of old Hawaii are angry. Navigating a rainbow, Paden and Track enter into the spirit realm. Paden is surprised when Kimo's two year old daughter, Pele, follows Paden across the rainbow. Goddess Pele’s spirit is evident in baby Pele’s little body as she intervenes by saving a life with her powerful magic.

Track is the first book in the Children of the Rainbow series. The series continues with the main characters from Book fourteen of the Phantom Lover series. The well written plot features the Island of Laysan, an uninhabited northwestern island that is considered sacred and has been declared a bird sanctuary. Track is a spirit walker, a creature of pure light. He spent his time in the spirit world, waiting for Paden. Track fell in love with Paden’s picture years ago. Now that Track has finally met Paden, he visits the earthly realm in human form more often. Paden is Lopaka’s father. Like Kimo, Lopaka’s husband and Sammy, Lopaka’s grandfather-in-law, Paden is a gifted kahuna. On the other hand, because Paden is immortal, he can walk the elements restricted to the humans.

Track is an impressive beginning to this spin-off series. The cultural history is fascinating, the intimate scenes are incredibly sensual. A. J. Llewellyn continues to enchant the readers with this titillating, as well as enjoyable, tale of Paden’s spiritual journey of discovery.
