In this pulse pounding thriller from the author of the “haunting twisting thrill ride” Megan Miranda New York Times bestselling author The River at Night a young woman leaves behind everything she knows to take on the Bolivian jungle but her excursion abroad uickly turns into a fight for her lifeLily Bushwold thought she’d found the antidote to endless foster care and group homes a teaching job in Cochabamba Bolivia As soon as she could steal enough cash for the plane she was on it When the gig falls through and Lily stays in Bolivia she finds bo. 35 stars rounded to 4 Hold on to your little flame of self because the world wants to blow it out my beloved sonThis is one of those books that feels difficult to review because it's heavy on plot progression and action and those are all the things that I do not want to spoil for you As in her previous book Erica Ferencik has brought forth a suspenseful endeavor into nature one I would never want to take myself but I feel brave enough to tackle vicariously through the characters in her story The strongest aspect of her two novels to date in my humble opinion is how nature is a prominent character throughout the story; she is unyielding and indiscriminating when it comes to who and what she decides to obliterate which adds an extra level of tension throughout the read While this isn't a realistic story by any means if you can put aside your need for something founded in the natural I think you'll enjoy the ride that Into the Jungle has to offer There is a backstory featuring a woman who grew up in the foster care system followed by an adventure through the rainforest including but not limited to dangerous over sized wildlife poachers missionaries shamans etc Oh and did I mention one of the most suspenseful birth seuences I've read to date Wowzers If you're looking for a fast paced exotic adventure from the safety of your home this is a great book to take your chances on If you're new to the author may I also recommend checking out Ferencik's debut novel The River at Night as well Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy
