A refreshing and delightful read from a promising new author! Loved the different twist on the age old story of good versus evil introduced with the concept of a "transporter" and how quickly I was drawn into the characters and story. Couldn't put this book down and breezed through it in an afternoon. Can't wait to see what awaits Meadow and Mark in book two of the series (which I was looking for on Amazon before I'd even finished this one - much to my chagrin, it wasn't out yet). Hope to be reading books two and three of the Transporter series soon!

The Water Cave (Book One in the Transporter Series) by Rachel Lopez Meadow Fields, Lopez’s red-headed Christian protagonist, is slightly more paranoid and fearful than your average teen; ironically, Meadow’s mother is a psychologist, but she’s had only minimal success in “fixing” her daughter’s condition. In the opening pages of the book, Meadow is revealed to be a sufferer of a recurring nightmare where she attempts to rescue a drowning boy in a damp, eerie cave. What happens when the boy, Mark, – who isn’t imaginary - is finally rescued provides the start to a fast-paced, surprising novel which suggests even more excitement in the upcoming sequels. Meadow, as it turns out, is both the victim and the result of a sinister experiment attempting to establish a method of porting people in and out of Hell. She finds that she is able to enter Hell through the Water Cave portal and subsequently gets involved in Mark’s dangerous story as it unfolds. At the same time, she is engaging in normal teen situations: cheer competitions, wardrobe angst, and a heartbreaking relationship failure. How will Meadow’s unexpected ability impact her mental state, her friendships, and more importantly, her status as a child of God? How did she end up becoming involved in this experiment? In answering these questions, the Water Cave accelerates through a number of plot twists to the end of the book, where Meadow embarks on a journey to a setting worse than the site of the nightmare that catapulted her into her initial adventure. Christian science fiction is necessarily a controversial area. There will always be readers who feel that the two should not mix, that books which hold Christian principles dear should not revolve around theologically unsound plots. Lopez addressed this dilemma at her book launch, where she explained that she always wanted to write warm, fuzzy books that spoke to the challenges today’s young people face: bullying, self-harm, risky behaviors. The Lord, however, directed her into this odd genre and she was compelled to write this story; only He knows the reason and outcome. I look forward to The Cave of Darkness, where Meadow’s saga continues.

3.5/4 stars The Water Cave had a very interesting concept with the serum and the different caves that had me very enthralled. A few spots felt a little slow to me when Meadow wasn't in the "real world" so to speak (at least in the beginning), but the story had a lot of exciting twists. I especially liked Mark. He still has some mystery surrounding him concerning his story, but he has such a big heart (though I admit I thought he would be different compared to the first time he was introduced). That twist in the end surprised me concerning a few characters! I'm curious as to see how a certain someone in The Fire Cave will play a role in the rest of the series as well as how Meadow is going to handle all that just happened. I recommend this novel to those who enjoy a young adult story with interesting twists and a fondness for touches of science fiction mixed in with fantasy. *(I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the author.)*

Amazingly great read! There were many twists and turns - some I could see coming and some I couldn't - which made for a fascinating adventure. By the end of the book, I felt a special connection with the main characters and a desire to see how this series is going to end. Love how the author combined lives from the past with lives from the present and how the main character had to explain so many things that we take for granted on a daily basis because they just didn't exist in the 1800s. Rachel has quite a gift at painting a picture of the story to where you can actually imagine yourself there. Great job Rachel! Looking forward to the rest of the series!!
