On a research mission in one of the most remote regions of the world, former Navy SEAL Eric Slade and Dr. Anna Fayne are caught in a mysterious storm. Catapulted through a rift in space-time, they are marooned on a lost world.
Struggling to survive and desperate to find a way home, they must confront the dangers of this savage land—a dark wizard and his army of undead—a warrior queen and her horde of fierce Neanderthals that stands against him—and a legendary treasure with the power to open the gateway between worlds, or to destroy them all: the Eye of the Storm.
This was intriguing story about a modern-day Navy Seal and an archeologist getting lost in an alternate world where dinosaurs still roam and the predominate humanoids are the Neanderthal in a bronze age era. (Think ancient Rome.)
Eric and Anna are the only survivors after being catapulted into an alternate dimension. There are captured, taken as slaves and sold to be the property of a warrior queen. She is the first queen, it seems, for her people and there are those who are disgruntled by being led by a female, no matter how formable on the battlefield. But there is an enemy rising and if the Neanderthals don’t pull their stuff together no one will survive the plans of a dark wizard and an army of undead.
This was right up my alley! The action and adventure, new world, and a unique set of circumstances that kept me on my toes. I wasn’t a fan of Eric in the beginning and Anna was a bit of a pushover. But they both grew over the course of the story and they had me holding my breath. This has a great cast of characters and a plot that has inspired me to continue with the series. I would definitely recommend this to those who like reading dimension/time travel fantasy stories.
