4.0 out of 5 stars Fun sequel - sci-fi thriller..., December 6, 2010

This review is from: Ghost Country (Mass Market Paperback)

This exciting follow up to The Breach reads like a movie script and I could see the action sequences and the main characters on the big screen as I turned the pages. A worthy sequel, Mr. Lee takes the characters on an incredible adventure following their discovery of a dead city filled with dusty bones.

Travis, Paige and Bethany used the cylinder to time travel to Yuma, Arizona, where they figure out that a controlled catastrophe is about to happen in the current month of December and that it will have the effect of virtually destroying the known world. What that incipient disaster is has them running all over the continents, back and forth in time, and facing their nemesis -- a former humanitarian in cahoots with the sitting President and a host of other corrupt scientists and government officials.

Although some suspension of disbelief at the last minute saves and some of the science and politics is required, it is after all science/adventure FICTION, and should be read just for the pure escapist pleasure of it.

Seems that there is plenty of room for another book in this series and I will look forward to reading it as well.

Recommend -- enjoy!

Bit of a letdown after the first book, but still quite an enjoyable read. The character of Travis becomes much more fleshed out, but the plot line is a little thin. The ending relies on the reader accepting a deus ex machina twist and several unlikely events in sequence. But Lee is a fine writer and this book is still recommended. I will be reading the third novel, Deep Sky, next.

Second in the trilogy and I felt it was even better than the first book "The Breach" which I really thought was good. The final book is called "Big Sky" and I'm looking forward to how this all turns out. Again, a terrific read of action, thriller, and a hint of sci-fi.

One of the more interesting and unique sci-fi stories I've read recently. I liked the first in the series, The Breach, slightly better.

I love this author. I have really enjoyed this book and also his first (read The Breach before you read Ghost Country). I'm a fan of science-based thrillers (a la James Rollins), and this author truly did not disappoint. I'm really looking forward to his future books to unravel the mystery of Travis's future actions and his relationship with Paige.

I enjoyed this book, as I did his first, The Breach. The premise is unusual, although I don't think he fleshes out his characters as much as he could.
