The Maw by Taylor Zajonc
eBook review copy; 320 pages
The Maw by Taylor Zajonc is a highly recommended
action/adventure story set in a supercave in Tanzania.
Milo Luttrell is a historian who is mysteriously invited to Tanzania
under the pretense of a project that may help him keep his job. When
he arrives he discovers he has been invited by Dale Brunsfield, a
billionaire explorer, to join an expedition that
will be exploring a new supercave. Milo has been invited because of
his research into the life of famed explorer Lord Riley DeWar. Dale
believes that DeWar's last, lost expedition may have been to this
cave and he needs Milo along for his expertise. Milo, who has no
spelunking experience, is joining the team of seven that just
happens to include his ex-girlfriend and a reality TV show star.
This is a thrilling adventure story that is full of intrigue and
suspense. There are enough complications and emergencies in the
narrative to leave you expecting a unanticipated catastrophe around
even corner. The descriptive passages make you even more cognizant
of the unknown discovers awaiting along with the danger as the
situation deteriorates for the expedition. Zajonc keeps the pace
quick, moving the plot along, as the challenges mount. The Maw
will hold your attention throughout.
