Mark Nykane
Belle Books
384 pages

Mark Nykanes’s Primitive is as tense a book I’ve ever had the immense pleasure and great privilege of reading. It has a knock your socks off knock out punch from the first page and doesn’t stop until the last page is done. Come take the scariest ride of your life on this Eco-Thriller, apocalyptic roller coaster ride, where the lines between villain and hero have never been thinner and where the final outcome could be the fate of the world as we know it. We have never had more unlikely heroines in Sonya Adams middle-aged model and her multi-pierced, multi-faceted daughter Darcy, but as you get better acquainted with them you’ll see just what stuff they’re made of.
Mark is an exceptional storyteller, with dramatic, dynamic descriptive dialogue that takes your senses through many excruciating and exciting journeys and makes his images jump off the pages. He takes his readers through a wild untamed natural wonderland filled with not only natural terrors but human as well. His wonderful characters enhance the story and he is intimately acquainted with each one, they are all well defined and multidimensional. His story line/plot is unique and yet something that could easily wind up on the front pages of any major newspaper or head lines of any newscast.
This incredible work of fiction will take you through many emotions, not all of them easy to bear but you will none-the-less find yourself unable to stop turning pages to find out what happens next. It is definitely not a read for the faint of heart, you will find violence here, but it is intricate to the story and in my opinion very necessary. So if you like your novels to be edge of your seat exciting with nail biting, heart racing thrills get ready for the ride of your life.
