An action adventure story with a touch of the supernatural. Elisa Hill is a myth hunter, an archaeologist who is searching for some ancient tablets that will lead her to the lost continent of Lemuria. Of course, as in any good adventure, she encounters adversaries, challenges and dangers along the way. Some what reminiscent of Tomb Raider/Indiana Jones this story holds no great surprises. Having said that, it is still a quick, entertaining read and the inclusion of a little supernatural, in the form of a Kitsune, was a bit different. Even though it is a plot driven story, the characters are likeable and have some depth to them. I found that the interplay and slight sexual tension between Hill and Davalos gave their characters some reality. The fight scenes are a little gory and implausible, especially in their weapon choices (mainly swords) since it is set in modern times, but then again it is fiction. If Indian Jones can survive a huge rolling rock then why not be able to slice a bullet in half with a sword! The narration fit the book well in the most part, but some of the accents were a little off.

If you could sum up The Lost Continent in three words, what would they be?
Dangerous Treasure Hunting.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Adding the shape shifter plus some of the other mythical features (statues coming to life) makes the story more exciting and dynamic. Adding the other worldly dimension was done very plausibly.
Which scene was your favorite?
Personally, I liked the scene where Stubby is threatening Seth with a gun and Seth responds by throwing a knife and cutting off Stubby's hand. That was well written and kind of awesome.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This is an exciting, adventure packed book. Caroline McLaughlin gives another great performance. Possibly because it is an action book, it is a little weak on character development. It is a solid entertaining book, but it will not move you.
Any additional comments?
This book contains graphic descriptions of violence. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
