Her son exists as a character only to be taken in danger so that tension can be artificially heightened, despite the fact that if she cared so much about the brat, it eems to me she would n't b taken him to an outpost in the most hostile environment on Earth in he first place.

At no point did I feel the main two characters were in any real danger, even less the kid.

And James Rollins does such a good job at crafting a really un story that I truly enjoyed reading.

In a ook you follow a wide range of characters.

And I just enjoyed reading there story more.

And I ill be reading more books from James Rollings.

He has pretty terrible taste in books a lot of the time.

Subterranean is a suspenseful book in some sense.

You ould see the ending of this nove from page one.

Cliffhanger is pretty dumb and I 'll fight you to the death if you do n't feel it 's amazin.

Tha novel is way bette than Cliffhanger, but he point is worth making.In summary, it 's stupi.

Rollins usually attempts to write strong female protagonist, sometimes he falls short, sometimes he makes them almost human.

Instead the Damsel in Distress ( which is a fair and fine role for any character) came across as ompetent, intelligent, if also held hostage by the illain.

Al people pointed out books that this was like that I have ever heard of.

I understoo it was like an old book made popular movie with sequels.

Throw in one or two military assholes and an egotistical commander to add conflict to he tory.

End each chapter with a nail-biting, yet totally manufactured sentence of suspense, like: " A gasp escaped her throat as the yetis crept closer. " At least one romance between male and female characters should be formed and one member of your cast should have traitorous, ulterior motives.
