Full disclosure - I love this series. With that being said I sometimes feel like some of the publishers miss the point of this type of writing. Publishers Weekly reviewed it as a silly plot and not worth the time. Golemons books, however, are exactly what escapism and action/adventure are supposed to be about. I read another reviewer, on this site, that said if you want realism to go read a biography. I couldn't agree more. I want to be entertained when I pick up this type of book. Golemon delivers what I'm looking for. I enjoy how he takes a historical fact, in this case the Romanovs, and interjects some what-if. To his credit as each new book has come out his writing has gotten better and better. So for me this book delivered everything I was hoping for. I was entertained. The action was fast paced. I enjoy the familiarity with the characters and the fact that there is more to come. Jack and his teams relationship with Farbeaux should make for some excellent stories moving forward. I will be waiting for the next Event Group adventure. If you enjoy James Rollins or the action/adventure genre take a chance on David Golemon.

I've yet to be disappointed by an Event Group novel, and this one was no exception. Loved it!

After reading the whole book in one seating, all I could say to myself afterwards was, "Wow!" Plot-wise, the story has its twists and turns that make it a classic Goleman and Event Group story. Okay so what's going on. I won't say much so as not to reveal too much (and ruin it), but suffice it to say that the story revolves around a rescue. 2 mysteries show up, Romanov and Bigfoot. Both mysteries are concepts that have been in circulation for awhile, so that's not surprising. What is surprising is really how the two mysteries meet and take care of each other. Okay, I'll stop there. If you like thrillers filled with some sci-fi elements, conspiracy theories, and legends coming to life, then I suggest reading the whole Event Group series. David L. Goleman is firmly placed in my must-have/must read bookshelf. I can't wait for the next one!

I've read most of the Event Group Series and have enjoyed them. I like a terrific fast paced thriller that keeps me turning pages in anticipation of what might happen next. I enjoy thinking outside the box even if sometimes the ideas might be far-fetched. Reading is an escape for me and the chance I get daily to use my imagination. Call me shallow if you will but as much as I appreciate the story inside the book, I like a good cover (even with the e-book versions). The cover for the book gives me a hint of what's going to be inside. I love the cover for Primeval. I enjoyed the storyline and was relieved that Golemon was able to bring the story full circle answering the questions I had.

Primeval is the fifth book in the Event Group series by David L. Golemon. I've enjoyed the storyline throughout the series, and the author has done a fair job of developing the characters along the way. My only real complaint with Mr Golemon is his immature writing style. Mr Golemon starts sentences with the word "Suddenly" so many times, that I'm beginning to wonder if he ever took a college (or even High school) writing course.

Golemon delivers once again. His blending fun fiction (legends and myths) with factual history is highly entertaining. The story lines are juicy and the pace is perfect. Yes the editors at St. Martin's need to tighten up a bit, but the book is a real page turner, nonetheless. I can't wait to get a hold of the next installment in this series and have already pre-ordered his upcoming ghost story, "The Supernaturals" - a perfect read for the Halloween season!

This was the first book I've read in the Event Group Series. Pace, detail, story background, setting and characters all merge together to form a believable fast-paced thriller. I am looking forward to starting at book one and catching up on the books I've missed. Thank You for a great read!

My wife recommended the book and I was reluctant because our preferences when it comes to reading do not always mesh. I gave it the old college try and after a few pages was caught up in the story, the characters and devoured it in a short time. The opening doesn't give you a clue as to where the story is going until you move forward in time and the plot thickens and the action just keeps on going. There are not many places in the book where you lose interest and the tale is a bit on the fantastic side but still within the realm of remote possibility so the suspension of disbelief is not to difficult. There are no dragons, trolls or goblins but there are creatures and the author's description of them give you a nice piece to get your imaginary tentacles around. I never like to have someone tell me to much about a movie or book so I wont keep going but I found it a great read and am looking forward to reading David's next book.

I have read every one of the Event Group series and they have all been riveting. This one is no exception. David Goleman is a great author and I would highly recommend all of his books.

...but soon deteriated into a slow moving, tedious bore which was made worse by the myriad of grammatical errors plaguing the text. It could have been (and should have been) so much better.
