About the Author
I have always struggled with the question "What are you going to be when you grow up?" Certain I wanted to be a psychologist, I attended Providence Bible College and received her Bachelor's in Psychology...only to find herself with no desire to counsel people. I switched careers to Teaching English as a Second Language and obtained a Master's from Seattle Pacific University. Teaching at universities and community colleges gave her eleven years of incredible experiences and unforgettable friends from many different countries. However, the distant mountains began to call, and she responded, not knowing where she was going or what her purpose was. After a year and a half of traveling through the quiet places that are left in the world, she settled in Missoula, MT with her husband and her dog. She has begun to write the stories she heard on the wind. I love to hear what you have to say. Please leave a review or visit my webpage at www.vickivlucas.com to write on the guestbook or send an email. But if I don't respond very soon, just remember that I may be off in the lonely mountains.

The first time I met Aric, it took me a minute to figure out who he is. I was like, "Wait, what?" But I thought he was dead! As I read along, I finally understood.
Again, Ms. Lucas formed characters that make you want to love them and then become annoyed by them. But, like us, they are human. And I love the Achippi, especially a new majestic black one that makes me think of Clash of the Titans.
Granted, the beginning of the story will get confusing, but as you read along, it becomes clearer of how these characters came to this particular point. I could hardly put it down that I read it all the way past midnight (New Year!)
I would highly recommend for younger teens and adults!
PS: The Department of Adventure were right about the side effects: "Getting trapped in dark caves, falling deathly ill, wrestling with your own personal beliefs, exhaustion, being faced with unsolvable problems, developing a new perspective of life, and trusting God’s faithful love in the middle of darkness."
They didn't mention another side-effect: a craving for the next book!
The message that this book conveys with what can turn rancid in our lives is all too timely in our current society. I highly recommend this book to anyone from age nine to ninety!
About the inside of the book... Since Rancid is book number two in "The Trap" series, it was nice to meet a couple new characters, (including a new flying horse!)
The story was an easy read. I spent most of the day involved in it on and off. I grew weary with the characters as they plodded along, felt happy when they were happy, and was sorry to see it end.
Honestly though, I felt like the story was only getting started around the end. Two of the main characters were mostly inactive for a long time. And much of the narrative was taken up by a snob insisting on telling his story. (I have to admit though, I'll never look at pinecones the same!)
Anyway, this book was a fun read, but less exciting than Vicki Lucas' last book. I'm looking forward to continuing the adventure in the next book in the series.
