This is a great book! It is fast-paced, vibrant, and has a fabulous plot. The Characters in this book are relatable, and you will get caught up in the story, held in suspense sometimes, and shocked at others. Overall, this book is very impressive, and detailed.

Pretty good action-adventure book with a prehistoric reptile who sadly **** (I don't want to spoil it) There is plenty of mystery,action, and adventure. I especially like the part when Grace, who was kidnapped by a guy named Butch, crushed up sleeping pills and put them on Butch's eggs in the morning.

Cryptid Hunters is a very exciting and adventurous book. The adventure starts with twins Marty and Grace leaving their boarding school (once they found out that their world famous journalist parents were missing) to live with a mysterious uncle they never knew they had (Travis Wolfe). As they begin to understand more about their uncle and about themselves, many exciting yet dangerous chain of events happen. It starts when Grace and Marty fall from a jet they were never supposed to get on and land smack in the middle of the Congolese jungle. As they try to find their way out of their mess, they miraculously manage to stumble across what could be the most valuable things on earth: a pair of Mokele-membe eggs. As they struggle with the dinosaur eggs, they must lose their ruthless pursuers before its too late. As the story continues, the twins discover things about themselves that they would have never thought possible. Everything they knew turned out to be wrong. . .
This book will leave readers desperate to read the next book. I would definitely recommend it.
