    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.

    I don't write reviews too often but I have to say how blown away I was by this book. Author Jeremy Robinson recommended this as one of his favorites and he did not disappoint. The incredible mythos that are examined here make this book so mind-blowing that I couldn't put it down. Don't miss this novel!

    Former FBI Special Agent Will Piper solved and survived the "Doomsday Killer" case, and his reward was a forced early retirement. But the shattering truths he learned about the government's most covert operations won't let him rest and now he's on the trail of a mysterious volume that's been lost for six centuries.

    Brian says: "Must Read!"
    "Glenn Cooper is on Top"
    Overall

    If you haven't read Secret of the Seventh Son, first go and listen to that absolutely incredible book and then come back. If you have then you know how great Glenn Cooper is at weaving a complex narrative.

    Will Piper is back in this one, dragged back to the mystery surrounding the Doomsday Killer and the library. This story plays out like a fast-paced thrill ride as Will tries to save himself and his family from the truth that may never be known for 17 more years.

    The narrator is spot-on, delivering accents and different vocalizations I swear were from a cast of speakers. He makes ever word believable and the story is so well thought out that you will be shaking from the easy cross-over into reality that is garnered here. I won't say the story is as good as Secret of the Seventh Son as that was perfection, but this author is as well-versed on history and thought-provoking concepts as anyone I have read.

    The first to disappear is a ski instructor in the secluded mountains of Colorado. Hours later, a pregnant woman is abducted from a crowded hospital. Two places, two incidents, a single motive. And so it begins....

    Char says: "Incredible Story"
    "Run Far Away from this!"
    Overall

    Trust me. If you are looking at this book then you like imaginative thrillers like I do. Novels with fantastic stories, sharp dialgue, witty characters and a good narrator. You are in the wrong place here. I had heard good things about this author but cannot get past the numerous errors made in this story that was such a waste of time and money on my part. I will forgo any books by this writer because he would dare throw this muck on us.

    Nine people have been slain in New York City, nine strangers with nothing in common - the apparent victims of a frighteningly elusive serial killer. Only one thing links the dead: postcards they received, mailed from Las Vegas, announcing the day they would die.

    Rebecca says: "An Ear Burner"
    "The Secret is out!"
    Overall

    Not only is this story equal in depth to Dan Brown's novels, Cooper has picked the best narrator from which to share it. I kept nodding my head, as I read the book, agreeing with the motivation of each chacter. Really well done!

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    Sittingduck says: "Detailed Koontz"
    "Continuation of a Great Story"
    Overall

    TBetween the reader and the author, Odd Thomas is alive and moving in these books. Forever Odd does not disappoint but continues the exciting and monumental travels of this saintly young man. I feel compelled to learn from this character. Koontz has again woven a strong story and I think any Odd fan must continue on with this one.

    Marc Seidman awakens to find himself in an ICU, hooked up to an IV, his head swathed in bandages. Twelve days earlier, he had had an enviable life as a successful surgeon, living in a peaceful suburban neighborhood with his beautiful wife and a baby he adored. Now he lies in a hospital bed, shot by an unseen assailant. His wife has been killed, and his 6-month-old daughter, Tara, has vanished. But just when his world seems forever shattered, something arrives to give Marc a new hope: a ransom note.

    Ed says: "Really"
    "Average Thriller"
    Overall

    It starts off strong but starts to fade at the end. Overall I enjoyed it but found the plot to be to simple. I do want to try some others from this author.

    For the three years Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place.

    Joseph says: "Amazing, powerful book about America."
    "Mythology, meet your new friend Neil Gaiman"
    Overall

    The book combined gods from various cultures with cosmic questions and a passive hero named Shadow. I had a tough time staying interested in this book even though the narrator did his best to create a visual landscape. He did a fantastic job on the characters and accents but Neil Gaiman may just be too "out there" for me. I kept waiting for it to turn the corner into an exciting story but that turn never came. This requires a lot of illegal substances to understand where you are going since so much of it relies on your respect of mythology and parallel universes. Pass on this.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    chris says: "Entertained"
    "Above Average King"
    Overall

    I had to try this book to see if King was up to the task lately and found it satisfying. I was always on edge and found the story to flow very well. The narrator did a great job to get across the morbid thoughts and armageddon-type mythos going on here. This was a good one to listen to while not ground-breaking.
