I just could not follow the various storylines that were all going on at the same time. The cast of characters were all over the place. Just too many things happenings at once. It made truly enjoying the story difficuft.

Good vs evil. Nature vs exploitation. Who will win? This vivid, multi-layered, multiple mystery narrative continuously weaves and winds throughout with lots of action, science and a hint of romance. To a point, a suspension of disbelief does assist with parts, but the story is easy to read and flows well. Characters are authentic, caring, and intriguing. Overall, a thrilling read.

This was a thrilling suspense, mystery read set against the stunning back drop of Yellowstone Park. With a cast of complex and well defined characters and a solid plot, it wasn't difficult getting sucked into this fascinating story. I was riveted, wanting to find out even more about the strange mutations that Rachel found. I knew there had to be a tie in with the experiments taking place.  Add to that the many of twists and turns; the corruption and lies, there was just no end to the many layers to this story. It was an intricately woven web, intelligently written, and flawless.
