This book is very action packed. I enjoyed the suspense and at times felt as though I was right with them in the tropical jungle fighting for survival.
I thought this book had very interesting secondary characters as well, with their own stories to tell, and I wanted to know more about them and their lives.
There were times I felt a little lost, as I have not read the previous books in this series so some of the storylines mentioned with the other characters might have meant more to me if I had been following this series from the beginning, but I have to say Tonya Ramagos is a great story teller and this reader will be getting more of her books to read in the future.
This book makes you want to run out and buy the rest of this series! What is not to love? The suspense, romance and adventure makes this story a must read!
