Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Vintage Rollins"

    This book is another Rollins high energy adventure. A little SciFi, a little fighting, a lot of great listening. Rollins is pure escapism.

    "biased story, full of inaccuracies and flaws"

    ALL the natives are great and the outsiders are exploiting them. and of course they have ancient knowledge that is MUCH better than modern technology, but they think an eclipse is bad ju ju, not impressed, story was only OK, example, the "Rangers" have a woman in their unit, they have NO body armor, NO thermal imaging or usable satcom, but the enemy does, RIDICULOUS!!

    Driving over 100,000 mile a year since 1983, I got hooked on audible books on tape 30 years back. I now listen from my bicycle 2 hours a day

    Story
    "Devolves into sophomoric silliness"

    After a fairly strong start AMAZONIA moves along quite nicely until the evil Frenchman and his minions waltz into the secret valley of the unknown tribe free from any of the problems that plagued the protagonist and his party.. Simply an unbelievable plot with irritating idiotic dialog. Don't waste your credits on this drivel. UGH. It's as if the author got tired of being clever and intelligent about 3/4 of the way through and allowed some B movie fan to finish up. Pass on this one.

    "Excellent Jungle Drama!"

    Really liked the story but there were pauses between sentences that were too long, and no pauses between chapters making it a little more difficult to follow. Overall excellent book!

    "Good, but my cup of tea."

    This is a good story, well written and only slightly slow in the telling. The ending was excellent.

    Story
    "Annoying Narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Fairly predictible


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    There is a constant hissing. Don't know if it's in the production or his voice, but there is always this hiss


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably, it would be full of CGI

    Story
    "delighful fruit of the forbidden tree"
    If you could sum up Amazonia in three words, what would they be?

    exciting, interesting, unique


    What did you like best about this story?

    the idea of the symbiosis between the tree and the people


    What about John Meagher’s performance did you like?

    John brought the characters to life by inflection and cadence.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The sharing between the dying shaman and the new one.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the ending as well. God always finds a way regardless of what we think we have control of!
