I really enjoy it

Jetpack wearing heroes, psychic lizard men, intelligent apes, cavemen, mystical portals, lost cities. After the last few books I've read, I needed something like this. It feels like the novelization of a summer action film. The main characters are likeable and heroic, its fast paced, and the adventure actually has some adventure to it. The story uses the same setting and a few characters from a pen and paper roleplaying game. In my opinion, not having experience with this game won't have a negative impact on following what's going on. The author does a good enough job establishing the world and its characters that I didn't feel like I was missing something because I was new to all of this. If I had one complaint, it's that I don't think all of the main characters are used well. Going into the final part of the the three part book, we have six main characters that have been established. But two of them have served their purpose by that point. They've helped to get the other four characters together, and have delivered important plot point information, and then they're pushed off to the side for most of the climax. All in all, I'm looking forward to the next book in the trilogy. And not just because it ends on a cliffhanger worthy of any saturday matinee serial.
