Cool story...fun look into "caving".

I liked this book. Great characters, well written and suspenseful. Nice themes about getting past one's wounds and fears and finding compassion for those dealing with them.

Adventure, intrigue, can't wait to turn the page kind of book.


Mark Sullivan has a wonderful way of bringing his book into your mind . Hard to focus on anything but the next page
Daniel Rudge
In Labyrinth, Mark Sullivan combines a coming of age story and an underground chase through a large cave system to create an adequate thriller. The plot has some interesting twists and turns but nothing too unexpected. The main plot lines are the chase after a group of escaped inmates led by Robert Gregor, a NASA deep cave exploration led by Tom Burke, the recovery from PTSD (caused by a deep caving accident) by Whitney Burke, and the change of little girl Cricket Burke into the young lady Crick ...more

This is the fictional equivalent of an action-adventure flick set to be released on Memorial Day weekend, with plenty of explosions, thrills, and chills and little plot to get in the way of the action.
You know a book isn't Pulitzer material if at the halfway point you begin fantasizing about which actor would play which character in the book.

It's a pretty fast-paced book with the general plot involving planetary geology and cave exploration. The author explains cave exploring well enough via his

Most of Sullivan’s novel Labyrinth takes place in an elaborate, twistin network of caves under Eastern Kentucky. This dark, spooky and confusing setting establishes the tone for this thriller. Robert Gregor is a young scientist’s assistant studying a specimen of a moon rock. After discovering that the rock has strong superconductivity characteristics with the ability to solve the world’s energy crisis, his mentor quickly claims discovery for himself. Gregor kills him and hides the rock in the ca ...more

It was a fast paced read for me, but it did have me rolling my eyes a bit. If it had been a movie, it would have been made for SyFy. The main characters had enough depth, and when it came to the teenaged girl, Cricket, I certainly enjoyed tagging along with her. For all that happened, for all that her parents had to endure, she really proved herself in the context of what was going on. I was cheering her on the entire way.

Not typical for what I have been reading, so in some ways it felt plain, b

What a page turner! Really fun book that incorporates realistic physics principles with some far flung, yet fun fictional ideas! The story is also very far flung, yet really fun regardless. I mean seriously, prison convicts taking a caver and his daughter hostage in the cave? But really. It was fun!
