Whew, that's a lot of stuff going on and James Rollins pulls most of it off without a glitch. The characters are strong enough to make you care, the action is most definitely exciting, the various creatures interesting and nasty enough to shock and awe even the most poised reader. So why not 5 stars? Well...
The ending could have been better, there could have been a little bit more surprise when it comes to the realization of who the "mole" is (that was kinda Scooby Doo-ish), and those who deserved horrible demises get dispatched rather quickly.
However, if you have read Rollins earlier work you most likely won't be dissapointed here. No matter how you look at it this guy is damn fun to read, and his books would make excellent movies. I know I'd buy a ticket, and speaking of buying check out Subterrranean and Excavation, both solid actioners.
No Tor-Tors were harmed in the writing of this review.
I read all the mystery and thrillers on the market and this is clearly one of the best this year.........
Nathan Rand is the main protagonist. He has lost both his mother and father to the dangerous Amazon. The government would like his help in finding the trail his father took four years ago. It seems a member of his father's original team has shown up alive after four years, but lives just long enough to say a few words to a shaman in a small Amazonian village. He also had a real arm in place of one that was amputated several years earlier. There is something out there that could change the world. Nathan's team includes Army Rangers as well as a group of scientists. The obstacles encountered will leave no man unscarred.
I just love stories like this. High adventure in the vain of Indiana Jones. The writing was so vivid it was like watching the big screen. It has fantasy with sci-fi, it has horror and mutations, and it covers the sciences from archeology to biology to evolution. Jaguars, anacondas, black caimans, piranhas, black ants, and one of the most vicious creatures, a woman called Tshui, are all part of the dangers (at least the normal dangers).
You'll enjoy this escape to the dangerous Amazon.
the plot is fairly believeable, it starts getting a little far fetched at the end though. its PACKED with action, mystery, betrayal, romance and even a little bit of comedy. the characters are great and i got pretty angry when my favorite was cut off. the facts are good, i dont know a lot about the amazon rainforest, but it all sounded good to me. the monsters (yes theres monsters) are creative and they have facts/reasons to back them up, so as to keep them believable.
OVERALL- if you are looking for a good, action packed read, with suspense and mystery (and MONSTERS!!!) this is certainly for you. i know ill be reading the rest of Rollins's novels as well.

The book has interesting, highly readable story line.
I can only recommend the Author and the Book
Rollins is always fun and sometimes you learn something because he does his research. Good read, somewhat surprising and slightly predictable.Published 25 days ago by book freak
