You don't often find short ebook downloads that give you the same experience a full length novel does, but this is one of those rarities. "Forgotten Canyon" tells a wonderful adventure story that will provide much entertainment in the short amount of time it takes to be read.
Story - Jonathon Scribner is a cartographer who lives in a world of luxury, but when he finds a mysterious map with the supposed location of a hidden treasure, he forsakes that luxury for a hike through a canyon that is difficult to maneuver through. Accompanied only by an unfriendly guide and a vast amount of horrible, stinging insects, Jonathon sets out on the adventure of a lifetime in order to become one of the richest and most famous men alive.
Writing Style - The author expertly shows the relationship between Jonathon and Riley, his guide. The author also conveys the atmosphere of the canyon extremely well to the reader; everything from the bugs to the sleeping bag to the cacti are explained perfectly. There is a bit of a history lesson in the story, as well, about Montezuma. Because I'm usually turned off or bored by historical stories, I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that I really enjoyed this history. It was very mysterious, adding to the adventure of this quest.
WARNINGS - Mild Peril
Overall - I loved this story! I thought it was extraordinarily well written, and at the same time, it was fascinating to read. It's adventurous, mysterious, and fun, which are some of the reasons that I've actually already re-read this story. It's such a good short download that I highly recommend.
