This story is about a long lost ancient library, and a long hidden group of people who worship the earth called the Skaladeskas. It was such a major departure from everything I've read by the author, that I was uncertain what to expect. I should have known better though! The authors ability to draw you in with her excellent character building and descriptions is very evident in this book. The story was fast paced without being rushed! I loved the concept of a mother earth worshipping religious order intent on protecting it, or her, "Gaia" The level of technological advances these people possess is amazing, and yet, there is no way to save the planet from man's destructive activities except with violence.  Our heroine is an earth lover herself. She is a spelunker, a rescue worker, an ancient manuscript scholar, among other things. Marina is a strong woman! But there is more than meets the eye. She just doesn't remember much of it. The story has many players and at first I may have had a hard time remembering who and where each one was, but after a few chapters, I was so into the story that it was easy to follow. The science and tech in the book are just fantastic! I wish we had some of it today!!  This was a very satisfying read! There were no cliffhangers as another reviewer suggested. But I want more! I'd love to know what happened to certain people from the book. I highly recommend this book, not just to lovers of this genre, but anyone who likes a good mystery. I will be looking for more along this line from the author!

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!

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.

Am a Cussler fan so I really enjoyed this book. Could have done without the profanity...but I did enjoy it.

Strong, well-developed female lead character.  Good first episode.  Looking forward to future books in this series and learning more about all the characters..

Indicates 650 pages on Nook, but sure seemed to go fast. Many thngs going on at once that converge toward the end. But the story carries on in the next book.

The ride to the airport was long and uneventful. Sandra continued staring out the window and her mother was annoyed with her and her fists were white and clenched on the steering wheel. When they finally pulled into the parking lot of the airport, Sandra immediately saw her friend, Rachel, who was going away for the summer as well. Sandra squealed and, dragging her suitcase behind her, ran to hug Rachel, leaving her mother to drag the heavy, bulky bags out of the trunk of the car. She muttered to herself, all the way up to Sandra. She grabbed Sandra by the shoulder and started dragging her daughter. Sandra shrieked and turned on her scowling mother. "Mom! Stop! This is my special coture shirt! You ruined it! Wah!" A line of cute muscular boys shuffled past. Sandra immedietly stopped bawling and whining and instead batted her eyelashes. The two started walking toward the plane, arguing all the way. When they were seated in the plane, Sandra pulled out her Ipod and started texting Rachel and when the plane got higher, she started whining again. "Why doesn't this plane have wifi?" A dozen people shushed her. "Well, it doesn't!" She growled back, slumped in her seat. Her mother groaned. Sandra glared back at her mom and then teas ran down her face. "I am sorry, Mom." Her mother's face softened and she replied, "I am sorry too. Let us just have a good ride." Sandra smiled and hugged her mom. They hugged for a little then Sandra fell asleep.
