In 267,000 BCE the continent was its own world, untouched by the planetwide catastrophe that ended the reign of the dinosaurs over 65 million years before. A traveler arrives in the jungles of this ancient world who will fight to survive carnivorous creatures in a land never meant for humankind. In another time and in a land far distant, men and women struggle to recover from the loss of so many of their own in a battle. Inside of this group, Colonel Jack Collins has summoned the best of the best from the most secretive organization in the United States government.
i decided to listen to the entire series again. traveler was a great follow up to the series!
Alone and on the run, betrayed at every turn, Jenna's path takes her from sun-drenched Key West to the alligator-infested Everglades, the streets of Miami, and the Caribbean islands. Along the way brutal criminals, deadly assassins, and the forces of nature conspire to end her life unless she can rise to embrace an impossible destiny and unleash her own lethal potential. Everything Jenna has been told about herself is a lie, and the truth is a secret that may destroy the world--or save it.
Non stop action, and twists and turns that are unexpected. Kept me on the edge of my seat! Can't wait for continuation of series.

A terrifying secret. A shocking discovery has been made deep within Rome's ancient catacombs. One that the Vatican is determined must never be made public - for the sake of all mankind. A deadly conspiracy. But there are others who want to keep the truth hidden for far more sinister reasons, others who believe that not only are the church and the faith of a billion at threat, but life as we know it is about to be destroyed - forever. And only one woman - a young Italian nun - can save us.... The nightmare is about to begin.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Devil Will Come to be better than the print version?
The narrator is obviously not American as many words are mispronounced. The story is OK., but not up to the quality of his other books.
Would you be willing to try another one of Maria Elena Infantino’s performances?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
