The journey through the rift becomes even rockier as the survivors are forced to take to the water, crossing a vast lake on improvised boats.

But halfway across, they discover something is tracking them from deep beneath surface, a colossal monster that's stranger--and larger--than anything they've encountered yet.

I've really been enjoying this YA adventure series, in large part because of Johnathan McClain's reading skills. Audiobook producers: please employ this guy for lots and lots of audiobooks!

To quote Syndrome in The Incredibles: That sounds a little dark for you.

This book is like the Toy Story 3 of this series! (And that's it I'm done referencing kids movies). This was a lot darker than the first three. I don't know if that was planned, or if that's Anderson's contribution. This is my first time

Team Killbot and their new friends have seen almost everything they can imagine. They've survived a plane crash into the Artic, only to find a tropical rainforest environment with deadly animals they've never seen before. They've crossed the tropics to find a desert, only to find a swarm of robots battling for their lives. They've encountered technology that can break any and every rule of science, and animals that can tear apart lives in a mere matter of seconds. They've met people who have bee ...more

Both the members of the robotics team whose plane went down and the members of the Cub-Tones from the 1950s are still surviving in the scary land of the blue broccoli forests, dealing with exploding fruit and scissor birds. They do find a statue and a tree village, but still do not find any inhabitants. They do come across a journal from a whaling ship in 1855. This shows them that the world they are in has existed for a number of years, but is also an ominous warning that people have been trapp ...more

"Lost in a tear in the Earth, pursued by technologies that shouldn't exist for hundreds of years, fighting with monsters that should never exist at all-they were alone and stuck with one another, both attacked and abandoned."

M.T. Andersonwrites the fourth installment of the Horizon series which builds the conflict within the group of kids stranded in an alien world and with the creatures of the world. Molly continues to turn inhuman; Yoshi continues to turn angry; Anna continues to turn to scien

Best one of the series yet as the survivors are battling for their lives, wanting to find a way out, and not wanting to give up hope. These science nerds from a recent plane crash are teaming up with the band camp geeks who survived a plane crash 50 years ago, and they are needing each other for their unique skills. Music is playing a major role in surviving in this part of the series, as well as Anna's knowledge of plants. No new survivors are found, but remnants of survivors from a type of wha ...more

No spoilers, but this is a well-timed and wonderfully crafted installment in the series.

I've been reading this series with my children and this installment pivots the story with thoughtful character growth that was missing from the previous book.

We really enjoyed Apex Predator and are now very excited about the next episode in the series.

The suspense of wondering who or what trapped the teens in the rift is getting more intense. The tension among the teens is getting stronger but at the same time more of them are seeing the need to work together. Terrific series!

I did not enjoy this authors style as much as the other three.
TERRIBLE ENDING, especially since book 5 is not out yet.
