What the Varchar?
Synopsis: Rachel's mouth sagged. "You mean you're really a monk? But how's that possible? You're not even wearing a robe, and your hair..."
He simply smiled.
A disturbing prophecy sends a treasure hunting duo on an urgent race to rescue a country in Kaylin McFarren's heart pounding new novel, Buried Threads. Full of erotic suspense and wild adventures, this is one trip that readers will never forget!
Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen work together as the successful owners of a treasure hunting company. But a seemingly simple assignment--to track down a priceless gem that is believed to be buried in a shipwreck deep within the Sea of Japan--takes a startling, and dangerous, turn.
Faced with a monk's dark prophecy that a natural disaster will soon strike Japan, killing millions, Rachel and Chase must embark on the mission of a lifetime in order to uncover the three cursed samurai swords that can avert the catastrophe.
Chaos ensues as their adventure takes them from shark infested waters and creepy caves to haunted hidden tombs and a confrontation with Yakuza gang members. Time is running out as the prophecy's day of reckoning draws near. Will Rachel and Chase succeed before disaster strikes?
When I first received the opportunity to review this books I was hesitant, being the second book of the series what had I missed from not reading the first book? Will it just continue where it left off and I would be completely lost? That was so not the case! I was able to jump right in and it read as if it was a story all on it's own. First I loved that this book took place Japan. Kaylin really gave you a detailed explanation of the culture and rituals that take place. All I have ever done is seen or briefly heard about these traditions so to get detailed explanations it was a real treat. Second, the action that took place within the story kept my attention from beginning to end. The story behind the treasure hunt is just one part but the most exciting thing to follow and along with that are the scenes of intense action that really keep your attention glued to the pages. And Finally, Kaylin did a great job at establishing the characters and really getting you to know them. All in all this was a fantastic page turner that keeps you wanting more. Looking forward to the books following this series!
