I wanted to shine a light on an author whose novels have really kept my attention for awhile now; James Rollins. New York Times Best Seller and action-adventure/thriller/history/science fiction extraordinaire, would be the best way to describe him. I was first introduced to his work from a classmate who recommended I check out the book Amazonia:
Set in the Amazonian jungle, this story follows a team of scientists and U.S. Army Rangers into the world of the unknown; following the trail of a previous team’s expedition, that killed all except for one, main character Nathan Rand and his squad have to survive unimaginable dangers in order to save humanity.
After reading this book I instantly became a fan. Any writer that can correlate history, science, and adventure in such a way that the reader feels like they’re reading an Indiana Jones or Tomb Raider novel, is alright with me. And I’m not a history buff, but his writings will take you on journeys that many of us (myself included) can only dream about—journeys that will spark a curiosity about a world that many of us (myself included) don’t really know.
If you’re looking to get lost in a story, then I’d recommend some of the critically acclaimed novels by James Rollins. With intriguing characters and intelligent as well as exciting storylines, readers, I promise that you won’t be disappointed.
Until Next Time…
