Summary

Primordia II, the stunning sequel to the blockbuster Primordia, explores a prehistoric world, travels over mountains and through swamps and strange jungles, and dives below a primordial ocean. 

 It was true - it was all true - and we were never meant to be there.  

In December 2018, Ben Cartwright, former Special Forces soldier, and a team of naive explorers followed the clues left by his ancestor to a hidden plateau in the middle of the Amazon jungle. It was said that once every 10 years, a secret pathway was revealed to a world long since gone.  

They went, and what they found was a place of wonders and of horrors. Only Ben and his childhood love, Emma, survived. But when the doorway to the hidden world closed, Ben was trapped on the wrong side.  

Now, Emma has waited 10 long years for the doorway to open again. This time she’d be ready. This time she had everything she needed to go back to that hellish place and survive. All she needed was for Ben to be alive when she got there.

Greg Beck does it again!

Book 2 in the amazing Lost World series, fans (like me) of book 1 will not be disappointed in this second book. Emily, a character in the first book is compelled to return to the Venezuelan Amazon rainforest, and this time she her companions are not convinced she is telling the truth about their destination. However when they arrive at Primordia their opinions change and they embark on an incredible mission.

Purely Amazing

Just a perfect primordial combination!
Would recommend these books to anyone with a slight interest in 'Jurassic Park' or 'The Lost World'.

Return to Fantasy Fact

Again not disappointed, in fact spent the afternoon listening to it as I did housework, to the extent I did not have the television on at all during the evening as I was listening to this audio instead.

Sequel better than the first!!!

Loved the story far more than the 1st book in the series. While our heroes and heroines faced as many beasts in this books, that wasn't the all-consuming prevalence. This version was more the characters maturing and having the ability to learn, grow, and succeed where younger selves failed

This is an adventurous book with friends looking out for each other, but like many or most thrillers, there's selfish coward or 2

I don't want to have to give too much away. Even if you read the 1st book and weren't very impressed. Give this one a try and get the Audible version of this if you can. It is very worth it!

Great story

I love this author. This is a wonderful series. The narrator either has a medical condition or a drinking problem, unfortunately. Some chapters are a little weird when he slurs his words. When he isn't slurring, he's a great narrator.

Well Written, But An Unnecessary Sequel Comes Next

First off, I like the story, here. What applied to my review of the first book in this trilogy applies here, as well. It’s well written, if a little run of the mill.

However, and this is a personal opinion that others may not share, it seemed to me that the story naturally ended here. To me, it had come full circle. The next novel in the series deals a lot with changes in history and time, but it’s an unnecessary sequel. My only gripe with this book is that it should’ve ended with this one. The next book just feels like a plugged in story the author needed to make it a trilogy. While these first two books are naturally connected, the concept of the third feels forced, and I confess to not reading it on account of that. Nonetheless, a good story in these first two books in the series.

Back to the Lost World

This book picks up ten years after the first novel and the trouble making comet Primordia is back again. Now it's a rescue mission to get Ben Cartwright off of that time displaced plateau. They come prepared with ex-special forces assistance and some high powered artillery. Will it stand up to the wildlife of 100 million years ago?

An excellent sequel, every bit as good, if not better than the first book. I recommend this audiobook.

Another A++++

I have yet to read one of Mr Beck's books that have not wowed me. while Book of the Dead will forever be my favorite, this series is amazing and I advise anyone into classic AC Doyle or hard science action thrillers to get the whole run.
