Highly Recommend. Great story that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. If you like Tom Clancy and his style of writing, you'll love Colleen's Siberian Treasure. Its a must read.

For those who like fast-paced adventure laced with romance and historical mysteries, sprinkled with sci-fi fantastic innovations that threaten our world as we know it, this is the book for you! And Marina, Colleen Gleason's heroine, is a most unusual woman: she is as strong and clever as James Bond, but she is not a spy. She is sexy but not flirtatious: she is only attracted to men who are her equal. She has a brain, she is a university professor with a deep knowledge of history and ancient manuscripts, yet she is physically strong and brave: this is no egghead! And then, she never gives up and never gives in! Her personal integrity, her sense of justice, her deep, unwavering humanitarian impulse - she is always willing to risk her own life to save someone else's - is unrivalled. So, as a reader, you come to admire her and root for her as she battles ruthless eco-terrorists, a bunch of weird, mad Siberians out to destroy our civilization. The stakes are high and Marina is truly a heroine for our Times: someone with strength and gumption to carry out all the battles against every sort of violence and extremism. The very battles we ourselves would like to carry out. But Marina is not perfect, towards the end of this book which hopefully is the start of a long series, you are given a glimpse into a (small?) defect, you are not quite sure what it is... As readers, we can't wait for the next book and get to know more about Marina: she is so human!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
