After the previous revelation, Kyle seeks further confirmation of his powers when he insists on speaking to Aumea – the beautiful daughter of a powerful Manutaki Island family – and discovers the meaning of her tattoo. But Kyle’s claims continue to stir up trouble and he still cannot convince people of the danger that Aumea might be in.
