Marina Alexander is a rescue expert called to a cave collapse and things only get more interesting from there! This is the second Marina Alexander book and I find that I just can't put them down! The excitement and suspense make this one of those books you stay up late to read. You don't want to do anything except find out what happens next. Marinas family is a bit different than yours or mine.  They are the Skaladeskas. They worship Gaia,  or mother earth,  as if she were a benevolent being. And they will stop at nothing to prevent her continued destruction. Even eco-terrorism. They need Marina to join them,  she is the last in the ancient  blood line of the Alexandrovs. The last in line to be able to lead the Skaladeskas. But she doesn't believe.  Marina's grandfather wants her back,  before it's too late.  He is old and tired and ready to join his "Mother" Gaia.  The only thing he has to offer Marina,  is his library. A library said to house scrolls,  stone tablets and artifacts from ancient civilizations never seen before. It is a hard choice for Marina. But the way they go about stopping the destruction of the earth is a bit unconventional. They use things that mother earth already has on her arsenal. Natural occurring this. The FBI & the CIA are doing all they can to stop the actions of this group of eco terrorists. They know Marina is the key and their link to the Skaladeskas.  The journey in this book takes us from a Michigan cave all the way to the Amazon rain forests, with some excellent science thrown in to the awesome and mysterious goings on. All the way to New York boardrooms. You will not be disappointed!  I want more! What happens with the characters? New and old? I can't wait for the next book. Marina is one tough lady.  Colleen Gleason is a very talented writer. She can draw you in and make you care what happens to her characters. She can make you wish the book was longer and shorter in the same instant. You want get to tell you what halogens but not too fast! You want to know how things play out,  but she leaves you with just enough of a question that you must get the next book. Highly recommended! 5 out of 5 starts for me!

Weak ending. No real closure to the adventure.

This is an excellent second book of what I hope will be a nice long series. There are a number of story angles and a deep undercurrent that promises something even greater in the offing. I like the characters and they way they evolve. The only downside is that it was 5 years between the first and second books and I would very much like to be reading the third right this minute.
