really liked it
bookshelves: adventure-thriller
Read from March 21 to 22, 2011

I picked up this book after hearing the author speak at the Tucson Festival of Books a couple weekends ago. I am not normally the type to pick up "thrillers" but I enjoyed the talk and so I decided to broaden my reading horizons.

The story was well developed and the characters were well rounded. As Graham Brown discussed in his talk, the whole idea of pure evil bad guys isn't to his taste and that resonated in the development. There were the good guys with some bad traits and the bad guys with some good traits.

I loved the unique story line of putting Mayans in the Amazon and the discoveries that the characters learned with the audience learning at the same time was great, added a few startling twists.

Initially Danielle's character came off a bit over-done but as the story progressed so did her character which in thinking about it after finishing the novel, I like how she developed and I like that at first she seemed too, almost cliche. It made for her development to be that much more well-done.

Now I wish that I had bought the second book to follow up because I want to know what happens next in the lives of these characters.
