Publisher's Summary

International best-selling author Jeremy Robinson has been compared to both Matthew Reilly and Stephen King. In Forbidden Island, he brings the characters and plotting of the fastest paced thrillers together with mind-bending imaginative horrors.
Seeking to contact humanity's lost tribe....
On the precipice of a cliff, contemplating suicide, dishonorably discharged US Army Ranger Rowan Baer is invited to provide security to a research team visiting the most dangerous island in the world - North Sentinel Island in the Sea of Bengal. Seeking redemption, he accepts.
Living among Amazon rainforest tribes, eccentric Israeli anthropologist Talia Mayer is recruited to study the island's elusive inhabitants - the Sentinelese - who have resided on the tropical island since the dawn of mankind. Seeing the chance of a lifetime, she joins the team.
On the run from his past, Palestinian linguist Mahdi Barakat is given little choice: join the expedition and make contact with the Sentinelese, or be left to face the men tracking him down. Afraid for his life, he finds safe harbor halfway around the world.
As part of an expedition funded by the Indian government and supported by a local resort millionaire, the team struggles to make contact with the Sentinelese, a tribal people renowned for their violence, strange behavior, and mysterious ways. But when the expedition's yacht strikes a reef, and sinks, the team finds themselves stranded on an island few people have ever set foot on and survived, an island that they quickly discover is home to far more than primitive tribal people.
...They uncover the very source of evil.

Not the best from Mr.Robinson

Having listened to several of Mr. Robinson's offerings, this one looked interesting. Upon conclusion and review, it is not nearly as good as some of these others IMHO.

Conceptually it works, but the devil is always in the details, and there is the challenge. Gratuitous references, random violence that does not move the story forward, and at times overly dramatic reading all combine to make this a difficult listen. The story does pose some interesting concepts, to be fair, but they are not clearly made and take far too long to reveal.

Can't recommend this one, unfortunately. I wanted to.

Dolphin calls drizzled in terror fuel!

This book was great. The characters were all fleshed out well and though the reasons for them being together were kind of basic, the elementary quality of the plot stopped there. The island and its inhabitants were quality and they were terrifying. The twists and attempts at explanation, the preview of the end, the end, and the idea that there could be more intrigue outside of the boundaries of the book made me want more. The idea that there could be an island or a tribe of people like this is the stuff of nightmares. I can not remember reading or listening to a book quite like this before. And the writing and narration were top notch. Great job guys.
Dolphin calls drizzled in terror fuel indeed!

A hidden gem

A whirlwind of a book with intense descriptions and exciting encounters - i took one star off as i found it a little repetitive in parts but make no mistake this is a great read!

The narrator was great and i'm familiar with his work on the Jon Reznick series - Kafer has the ability to bring characters to life.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
