Review: Thunder Cave (Jacob Lansa #1)

User Review  - Jayanna - Goodreads

When Mrs. Buchwald first showed me the book I didn't think I was going to like it. But when I read the first sentence I was automatically hooked. I read it in one day. I fell in love with all of Roland Smith. Thanks! Mrs. Buchwald Read full review

User Review  - Kyle Larsen - Goodreads

This book taught me a lot about Africa and the issues happening there, the characters were interesting and the plot can really suck you in, the ending was very anticlimactic though. Read full review
