This is the second book in a series, which is based on the premise that humanoid aliens landed on earth tens of thousands of years ago. They bred 'Big Foot' yetis as helpers and created humans with which to interbreed. The aliens became the ancient gods of the Egyptians. Going into cryogenic sleep for centuries at a time, the aliens come back from time to time to wreck havoc with one another and their human descendants. The action reminds me very much of the movie series, ''The Mummy,'' with incredible high adventure. The pace is frenetic and the story lends plausibility to an number of evolution theories. We rated this book a solid four hearts. --Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews

Youll be carried along by the action...just going along for the ride...life and death situations, narrow escapes, mysterious characters abound. This is a great adventure story. You may even pick up a bit of history now and then...A very enjoyable experience. The theater of the mind can be even more exciting than the big screen. --Andrew Grgurich, Marquette Mining Journal

Shiel uses her extensive knowledge of archaeology, anthropology, and Bigfoot to write a very rich story. I really enjoyed the exploration of the ancient cultures and their traditions. I would highly recommend this book to readers that have an open mind about the origin of man and who enjoy fast-paced stories that involve alternative histories about ancient cultures. --Paige Lovitt, Reader Views
