Imagine yourself on a roller coaster sitting on the very top. Looking down. You're waiting. Heart pounding. You know that any second now and the operator is going to cut you lose. Heart pounding faster and faster. You can see the operator smiling because he knows you are in for the ride of your life. The ride you never expected. Nobody can prepare you for this. The operator pulls the switch sending you down down down the track, loopy loop around the bend and down again. Faster. Faster. Give me more you scream. Arms raised as you enjoy the adrenaline rush. You're moving faster and faster. Wait..... The car won't stop. God, it's out of control! No way to stop it! You hold on for dear life. Pray to god that he saves your soul and make yourself right with Jesus in case the car runs off the track sending you soaring through the air. That's what it is like reading this new book by Matthew Reilly. I've read several of his books and this one has got to be what I feel is his best. If you're not familiar with his tales this one if fast pace all the way through and does not give you time to catch your breath. The woman in this book is named CJ and she is as tough as they come as she battles for survival in this zoo of dragons. In the beginning there is a brief description of the dragons and how this zoo came about and later in the story CJ discovers something else different with the dragons. They are in deed very special. With the help of a very special dragon she saves lives, survives explosions and is everything Indiana Jones wish he could be. This story is tons of fun. Highly recommended.
