Rare Earth: A Book Review

About The Book:

Marc Royce stares out of the helicopter, a sense of foreboding rising with the volcanic cloud.  Below, the Rift Valley slashes across Africa like a scar. Decades of conflicts, droughts, and natural disasters have left their mark.
Dispatched to audit a relief organization, Royce is thrust into the squalor and chaos of Kenyan refugee camps. But his true mission focuses on the area's reserves of once-obscure minerals now indispensable to high-tech industries. These strategic elements--called rare earths--have inflamed tensions on the world's stage and stoked tribal rivalries. As Royce prepares to report back to Washington, he seizes on a bold and risky venture for restoring justice to this troubled land.

But this time, Royce may have gone too far.

About The Author:

My Review:

Davis Bunn is one of my favorite authors, and once again I was not disappointed in this most recent release, Rare Earth.  After reading Lion of Babylon, I could not wait to see what would be next for main character, Marc Royce. He was taken on quite a journey in Rare Earth, and with each turn of a new page, the suspense grew and grew. There is even some romance thrown in for good measure, though done so in a non-invasive way.

 Bunn is a masterful storyteller, and my attention stuck throughout the entire book. Although Rare Earth is book two of a series, it is strong enough to stand on its on, and you won't be lost if you have not read the first book. I would absolutely love to see this series as a movie, it is full of action and suspense and if you like this genre of Christian suspense, you will love Rare Earth!.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase Rare Earth at your favorite bookseller from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group
