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.

    "Enjoyed."

    We have listened to two James Rollins books. This one was as good as the first. The reader was good.

    "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!!

    Story
    "A story crying out for an editor."
    What would have made Amazonia better?

    This book is loaded with cliches and grammatical miscues, like


    What was most disappointing about James Rollins’s story?

    The stylistic irritants so drove me to distraction that I cannot even comment about the plot.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Meagher’s performances?

    I would say that the narration is OK, except that there were some odd pauses between sentences, as if Meagher himself needed time to decipher Rollins' awkward syntax.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    A great sadness for the abuse to which the English language was subjected.

    "Good story but..."

    I really enjoyed the story but I feel there are so many narrators that could have done it more justice. Not that third one is bad but just not the strength of voice I'd prefer fit this type story.

    Story
    "Thankfully I ignored the negative reviews!"

    This was an adventure I'm thankful to have taken a chance on. Mr. Rollins is an amazing storyteller and this tale was entertaining from beginning to end.
    The sour-pusses that nearly convinced me not to buy this book with their petty whining and nitpicking ought to mind the old adage, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all".
    If any of his other novels are even half as exciting and well written as this one, I'll buy them all and be tickled to do it!

    "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!
