Vic: Terror Incognita is the 4th novel in the action adventure series The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger. Vic is preparing for a work related trip up the Amazon river. Vic and her friend Lin ... Li don't think this will be a picnic. They expect tough conditions, hot weather, mosquitos, wild animals. They can handle it. It's what they do. Readers love to hear about visits to rugged locales. But do they really know what to expect? Over 50,000 miles of savage waterways course through the brutal jungles of the Amazon! Who knows what secrets might lie within an uncharted area as vast as all of Europe? Of course Vic will also have her senses attuned for signs of Nu, her soul mate from 100,000 years ago. Lethal encounters begin before the trip begins! Plus, Vic finds her friend Emma has a serious personal problem, two in fact. Vic can't help with one but the other leads to some un-ladylike conduct in the streets of Beatrice. She and Lin both decide that fighting bad guys and monsters is easy compared to social and personal problems. When Vic and Lin Li finally get to the Amazon, Vic has a chance to taste some great local food including rock grilled pirarucu, roasted favolus, and anona fruit. The trip has a good start. Their greatest worry is whether they may run into headhunters. Turns out there is more to worry about. Vic is delighted to learn that her favorite book of all time was not strictly fiction. It sets Vic and Lin on a search into terra incognita, which should be labeled terror incognita! They discover people who need help and Vic does not hesitate.. Enroute they deal with giant snakes, caimans, piranha, a greedy guide, but those are unworthy of mention compared to what awaits them in Terror Incognita! Among the lessons learned, it is better to be prepared and not need to be than to be unprepared and dead; anyone can make a mistake and one mistake does not a bad person make and of course, keep your weapon with you! Fast paced and unpredictable, action adventure in the tradition of the adventure pulps of the early 20th Century. If you like Doc Savage, The Avenger (Dick Benson), Nancy Drew, or Tarzan or any other novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs or H. Rider Haggard you will love Vic Challenger. What reviewers think of the series: Vic Challenger personifies every sword or ax wielding heroine ever drawn by any heroic fantasy artist. the female answer to Indiana Jones Great Campy Multi-Genre Book I have recommended the Vic Challenger books to my wife and to all of my children Any of these novels would make a really good movie. if you like Clive Cussler or James Rollins, these are definitely the books for you. The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger series is inspired by writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs, H. Rider Haggard, Jules Verne, Arthur Conan Doyle and H. G. Wells; and by characters like Nancy Drew, Lara Croft, Alan Quatermain, Doc Savage and his cousin Patricia Savage, and Dick Benson and his assistant Nellie Gray. The writing style has been compared to Burroughs and is also reminiscent of early action driven horror novels by Graham Masterton, The series is set in the 1920's and considerable research adds to the realism You will find yourself effortlessly learning bits of history, some of which may amaze you. Vic's travels are so woven into the history of the time, you may be asking yourself Is this real?
