NICK RANDALL is an archeologist who believes mankind isn’t alone on Earth. When a mysterious benefactor funds his research, he departs to find the lost city of Vilcabamba. Hidden deep in the Amazon, Randall believes the city holds proof that his contentious theory is true. Upon arriving at the ruins, he mysteriously disappears.

Randall’s beautiful daughter SAMANTHA learns of her father’s disappearance from his mentor FRANCISCO ANDRADE who pleads for her help. An accomplished archeologist herself, Sam must decide if she will set aside her career and search for the man she blames for her mother’s death.

But someone else is looking for her father as well. FRANCIS DUMOND, a shadowy man with unlimited resources, will stop at nothing to find Vilcabamba and use its technology to control the world. It’s a race against time to see if Sam can find her father, prove his theories and stop Dumond. (less)

    Love the visual images in the opening lines: “noose-like effect of the humidity” grabbed me. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

    1. Thank you, Loreen! I love your ‘cat’ blog 🙂

  2. This sounds like a great story. When I was ten I really wanted to become an archaeologist. As I got older I got less interested in working outdoors and getting dirty. Being a librarian suited me better for the 40 years I did it. Happy reading and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Thanks Kathy. I love that, Archaeologist, then getting dirty outdoors, then a librarian… I’m not a librarian, and would love to be, I used to work at the Cambridge University Library, which was a wonderful experience.

  3. Silver's Reviews – I am a retired business teacher. Visit my blog at: http://silversolara.blogspot.com Of course favorite thing to do is READ. I also enjoy baking, cooking, gardening, and using my computer.

    Good beginning…thanks for sharing.

  4. This sounds exciting! Dan Brown came to my mind too. I hope you are enjoying it! I will have to check it out. Have a great weekend!

    1. Wonderful! Do come back and share your review if you get to read it! 🙂

    1. No. We’ll at least not as far as I can see yet. Yes I see what you mean about State of Wonder.

  5. This does sound like a fun read! I really like the concept and I don’t think that I have read a book that deals with archaeology before. Thanks for sharing it. 🙂

  6. Dome shaped helmet like an astronaut or dome-shaped like an alien?! You can see where my mind is. I may not sleep thinking about it. Happy weekend!

    1. haha! I CAN see where your mind is 🙂 You, too!!

  7. I’ve never heard of the author or book before but it sounds exciting. I admit I didn’t read Dan Brown but my husband has and loved his books. This may be one he is interested in as well. Thanks for sharing. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your book. Happy reading.

    1. Thank you for popping by and leaving a comment. I do hope you’re both having a lovely weekend! 😆
