The historical and evolutionary background in this story was fair, but not as detailed as others. I think this was because the background information was not given enough attention. With this story, Greig seemed to put more time into developing multiple subplots and having their storylines converge into one finale near the end. Although it worked, I think there were too many things going on which prevented the real plot from working its magic.
After clearing the first chapter, I kept on reading non-stop because I wanted to learn more about the creatures, their history, their habitat, their culture, and how they survived for so many generations. But all I seemed to get were more side stories about the various different military units out to get the Arcadian. Although this has a lot to do with the Alex Hunter series in general, sometimes the more intriguing part of a story doesn't concern the main character at all.
The anthropological information integrated into the plot was quite fascinating and added a bunch of scientific details. The author's research abilities in this area are quite phenomenal. But as a big fan of all Greig Beck books, I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with this one. I think it could've been so much better if Greig concentrated more on the story of the creatures and the caves and less on the drama among the various factions.
The creature was trapped for thousands of years in a mountain cave but released when the wall blocking the cave entrance was damaged. The creature appears unstoppable and it is taking other local residents as well.
Meanwhile, Jack Hammerson (the HAWC commander) learns that Alex is alive and back in the states and goes after him with one of Alex's fellow HAWCs from the prior book. Some medical people in Hammerson's division are trying to duplicate the Arcadian and create some prototype soldiers with similar abilities that they send to bring back Alex.
All the above forces along with the ancient creature are on a "collision course" in Black Mountain.
The author does an excellent job of bringing the story in a new direction. Where the plot outlines of the first three books were very similiar, this one is more about Alex learning about himself all over again and the pschology and history of the creature is greatly explored. Each individual the goes to Black Mountain is there for their own cause, some just to capture or kill Alex and others because of the creature.Read more ›
