Leap (Breakthrough #2) Reviews
Leider weit schwächer als der erste Band. War mir viel zu langatmig und konnte mich nur stellenweise wirklich überzeugen. Das letzte Viertel macht aber dennoch neugierig auf den finalen Teil.
This is a sequel and while the first book isn't required it introduces all the characters. In this book the baddies are even badder; we have a national security threat as the Chinese military is removing a mysterious substance from Guyana. The dolphins and the scientists have moved from Miami to Puerto Rico and been joined by a gorilla specialist who is working with a 3 year old gorilla to learn the animal's language.
There will be much action, much adventure and aliens.

The pivotal points of the plot are rich with thrilling adventure and death that leads to despair for the protagonists. From the middle of the narrative to the approach of the end, excitement and intrigue simmer until characters from the first book turn the ti ...more
Blah. Closer to 2.5 because it's somewhat unique and well written, but the story and characters are just kind of there.
This is turning into a really fun series. You can't help liking the cast of characters and their animal companions. Its all a bit 'boys own adventure' but its hugely entertaining and a lot of fun. Despite there being nothing terribly dark in these stories, the characters must face many dangerous challenges and solve numerous puzzles. Their values are also frequently tested.
I like a serial killer thriller as much as the next person but, for a break from all that, this breakthrough series is just ...more
