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 . . .

I'm really disappointed because the plot of this book started so cool, but the swearing & foul language ruined this book. It detracted from the story itself to the point the book was not worth reading.

Yes, for a sci-fi fan it is very predictable; however, it is fast paced, the adventures are remarkable because they are actually stress inducing. (I found my heart racing and my breathing rate increased--which is rare when reading a book!). All the nods to what I assume were his favorite sci-fi movies were fun, too. It is a thick book, but it goes very fast--probably because you won't be able to put it down.

Sort of an updated version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World", minus the dinosaurs.

Wow! This is one of those "can't put down" books! Don't read it at bedtime unless you want to stay up all night to read it, (and then the rest of the night having nightmares!) Very good!

An original and complex book about how we are slaves to nature and not the other way. Great adventure read.

Where there is life, there is hope.

Rather then attacking the problem aggressively, everyone was still pointing fingers and running for cover.

If the jungle wanted you, it was going to take you.
