I almost read the entire book in one evening, I just couldn't stop. James Rollins is master when it comes to writing adventure books and this book is so incredibly engrossing that I just couldn't stop reading. Just one more chapters, and suddenly it's two hours later. The only drawback? The romance, I don't know why, I just wasn't fond of it. I'm not against romance in adventure book, but I want it to feel real, and the romance between the main characters, well it was just corny, one step away from a harlequin novel, but beside that the book was really good!

My first Rollins - and still one of my favorites ( )

James has created a tantalizing tale of Amazonian jungle mystery, packed with plenty of fast paced action, love and a little gore. Maybe a tad more than a little-but never over the top. ( )

Nathan Rand is assigned the task of following his missing father's trail deep in the Amazon. What the team finds is beyond human imagination. I really like James Rollins stand alone books. This one is exceptional. ( )

This was hard to put down. However the ending was a bit too predictable. Still, it was good entertainment and also had some "thinking points". I would read other novels by this author. ( )

The Rand scientific expedition entered the lush wilderness of the Amazon and never returned. Years later, one of its members has stumbled out of the world's most inhospitable rainforest--a former Special Forces soldier, scarred, mutilated, terrified, and mere hours from death, who went in with one arm missing . . . and came out with both intact.

Unable to comprehend this inexplicable event, the government sends Nathan Rand into this impenetrable secret world of undreamed-of perils, to follow the trail of his vanished father . . . toward mysteries that must be solved at any cost. But the nightmare that is awaiting Nate and his team of scientists and seasoned U.S. Rangers dwarfs any danger they anticipated . . . an ancient, unspoken terror--a power beyond human imagining--that can forever alter the world beyond the dark, lethal confines of . . .
