Rare Earth - Book review.

This week I finished Davis Bunn's Rare Earth. I loved it. This is the sequel to Lion of Babylon, but you do not have to read that one before enjoying this one.

Mark Royce is always at that center of action and this time it takes him into the heart of Africa. Hurting, dislocated people starving and lacking medical supplies are where he starts, but it goes so much deeper. Why are these people being relocated, and who is relocating them?  Can Mark figure out what is going on and restore a people to their land and help avoid more death and destruction?

I love how Davis writes about other cultures. He always shows such respect when dealing with a way of life that is so different from ours. The character shows grace under fire. He is calm but always willing to do what is needed. A man to be respected. I have enjoyed this particular series.

Bethany House provided me with a copy to review, but my opinions are my own.
