    The South American Boreal: one of the last truly unexplored jungles on our planet. In its dark heart is an ancient crater basin, sealed in by a living cage, making it a time capsule for an ancient, deadly ecosystem. Matt Kearns, Carla Nero and a team of scientist explorers have found their way in. In the crater's sunken interior are creatures from a primordial nightmare. Dangers lurk in every treetop, under every rock or loom monstrously over them. It is a place where mankind is out of time.

    Cheated !

    I feel that I have been cheated out of two credits in listening to this series, the "First Bird" trilogy is not really that at all, it is a single boo..Show More »

    Matt Kearns and the remnants of the scientific team return to a ravaged America. Modern medicine has failed to halt the spread of the flesh-consuming parasite, and humans have been forced to hide, even from one another. The infected roam the cities and suburbs of a ruined nation. But the devastating effects on human physiology are only the beginning. Something has been let loose, something that the team were not prepared for - human nature itself.

    Massive sinkholes are opening across the country – each larger and deeper than the previous one. First the family pets go missing, and anyone living near one of the pits, is reporting strange phenomena – the vibrations, sulphurous odours and strange sounds rising up from the stygian depths. Then come the reports of horrifying ‘things’ rising from the darkness.When the people start disappearing the government is forced to act.

    Well read sf book

    Great story but a little rushed at the end I think, very well read reminds me of ' the thing ' in places

    What would you give for eternal life? An impossibly old man, a family gruesomely murdered and a woman whose collection of mythological artefacts defies belief: Professor Matt Kearns knows they are connected. These ancient clues bring Matt out of his self-imposed solitude to seek the fabled Fountain of Youth. This brings on a perilous odyssey across deserts and oceans and into the heart of a mountain, and Matt must overcome horrifying adversaries and creatures of legend and also unravel a 5,000-year-old mystery.

    Excellent as expected

    Great story narrated brilliantly. Thoroughly enjoyable tale. Can't wait for the next story by Greig Beck.
