The Book Junkie


Chakana - W.E. Lawrence Chakana was given to me in exchange for an honest review. I wasn't sure about it at first but when it was described as being reminiscent of Indiana Jones, I was in. I really enjoyed it. I love archaeology so as soon as the plot was revealed, I was hooked. I loved the journeys to find the different pieces of the artifact and the bad guys following the good guys, always a step behind until you get closer to the end. It was also a lot of fun to see the booby traps and how the characters got through them. Kate and James were likable characters and the romance in the story was a perfect accompaniment to the adventure. My only complaint is that their first encounter together was kind of corny and Kate seemed to recover from being scared out of her wits extremely quickly. But when you look at the big picture, the story was a lot of fun and wasn't really meant to be perfectly realistic. I enjoyed it and if you like adventure/romance, you will too.
