This story has an amazing cast of characters. Most of which have fur. Imagine a future so far distant, that the remaining sapient beings in the galaxy all evolved from mammals that roamed Earth ages ago. Welcome to Barsk and the other worlds in the Alliance. And did I mention time travel, sort of? There are some books that you don't want to finish. This is one of them. Especially when there isn't a sequel...yet! Very very highly recommended.

This is a riveting book. I was up past 02:00 both nights it took me to finish. If I could read novels like this all the time I might never get anything done. Very highly recommended, as are all of Sandford's books.

This book wasn't that long, but it seemed like very long. I couldn't seem to take more than 30 minutes at a time. There was no compelling anything in this book. There was more angst and retrospection than any YA novel I've ever read though. I had to finish, because the post-apocalypse world Runit lived in was interesting, but I should have given up when I first started skimming to get past his whiny ruminations.
SPOILER ALERT. To make it even worse, most of the interesting characters were killed before this book was finished. I can't imagine what takes place in the next two in books in the series. I don't recommend this book, period.

I really like this book, but it's one of those headache inducing brain twisters at times (pun intended). It took me a while, but it was worth it. It had some bad endings, but also a good one. You'll have to read it to understand that. After all, the true nature of time is a fractal. Very highly recommended.

That said, this is an engaging story. Homicide Sergeant Natalie Collins is the unknowing target of a serial killer. Unfortunately, her sister was staying with her and the killer got the wrong woman. Now Natalie has to find the killer, while she's the main suspect in her own sister's murder.
And then there's Daniel McClellan Harris. He saved Natalie's life, but he's on the run for murder too. Natalie trusts him, but should she? Together they will do their best to bring down the killer. It had a good ending anyway. Recommended.

Alison has relocated her research to Puerto Rico. Alison and her team are expanding their IMIS technology to include primates. They're facilitating communications between researcher DeeAnn Draper and her young gorilla. Then the opportunity arises for DeeAnn and her gorilla to help on a search for one of DeeAnn's old friends.
John's investigation in Brazil eventually converges with DeeAnn's search. Just in time from DeeAnn's perspective. What they find in the South American jungle makes the ring they found in the Caribbean seem trivial. Another great science adventure. Very highly recommended.
Alison Shaw is a marine biologist. Alison and her team are getting ready to initiate the first two-way communications between humans and dolphins.
Kathryn Lokke is the directory of the United States Geological Survey. Kathryn is currently concerned with the geological stability of Antarctica. A serious earthquake near the Ronne ice shelf may indicate it's going to collapse.
As this tale progresses the efforts of John, Alison, and Kathryn converge. They've discovered something new, exciting, and dangerous. This is a great story. It has all the science, suspense, and danger you could ask for. Very highly recommended.
