He struggles to keep everyone together in spite of the attempts of Colonel David Walsh, MD, to assume command. Just before leaving for Africa, Harris received a "Dear John" letter from his fiancée, Morning Star. His second in command and blood brother, Captain Jerome Roundtree, a Lakota Sioux, is Morning Star's cousin. Harris is determined to get back to rectify his relationship with Morning Star. But he needs boats to reach the extraction point in time AND he does not have any. Nomi is an African princess who lives in the year 4000 BC. She dreams of a big, strong warrior rescuing her from their hated enemy, the Masai. But when her father has dreams about her and the tribal shaman says that she must marry the warrior from the North who defeated the Masai and leave her tribe OR ELSE her people will die, she learns how hard it can be living dreams.

An explosive fusion of the present moment of science and technology into the deep African past. Each chapter takes the story and its vivid characters on a fascinating new turn and you are on edge all the way. I didn't feel so much that I was reading these adventures as much as I was in an IMax theater and it was happening all around me. Incredibly visceral. Wonderful sense of place and existence, but at any moment the existence – and your existence – could disappear.

The author did a great job with describing everything, so you can picture what is going on in your head very clearly.

This is not my usual choice of reading, but as I was browsing throught the first chapter I was intrigued by the story as it unfolded. I found the book to be easy reading, and exciting as the pages pulled me through each chapter. I found the characters strong, bold beautiful and charismatic. I look forward to the next 'mission' and the decisions Nomi will have to make.
