    It's a cliche to say a book is a "page turner" but The Alpha Strain really & truly is. The book is full of modern & ancient history; there are subtle tie-ins later in the book to the beginning of the book ... so don't skim too much! Urcelia Teixeira is great story teller. She makes you feel like you're right there with Alex & Sam in the middle of their adventures. I strongly recommend The Alpha Strain & all of Urcelia's other books; you won't be disappointed.

Urcelia Teixeira as the author totally did her homework for this story and then added a whole new dimension of excitement and danger. Alex Hunt is now working for the United Nations but she is forced into a mission to recover a extremely special bone from a very deep and dangerous cave in wartorn Africa. Her only condition is that her partner Sam Quinn accompany her. From the very beginning the trip is fraught with danger and death. This is a riviting story of a search for the missing bone that can change our theory of evolution. The mission is to search and recover the bone. The catch in all this, the bone is located in the depth of one of the most dangerous caves in Africa. The quest is entwined with danger, war, and duplicity from many directions. Will Alex and Sam both survive and return safely, or can the bone ever be retrived and saved from the ravages of war. I gave this book 5 Stars and loved it. I started the book and could not put it down, but then this was the case with the first 2 Alex Hunt books I eagerly await the next book. There is a fantastic National Geographic article regarding the actual finding of the bones.

    The Alpha Strain deserves more than 5 stars. This is truly a page turner. I was hooked from the very 1st page. Alex is hired by the UN to go to South Africa to find the molar of an ancient human ancestor. This molar, if found, could change how we view human history. Of course, she wants Sam to go with her. They make quite the archaeological pair. Before they ever get to their site if South Africa, their plane is shot down by insurgents. Sam and others sent by the UN are injured.

To say it gets quite rough for Alex is an understatement. I pride myself in being able to figure out the ending of a mystery or archaeological thriller by the 1/2 way or 3/4 of the book. So didn't happen with this book. Totally had a twist that I had not seen coming. I stumbled across Urcelia 1st book and so glad that I did. Urcelia Teixeira and the Alex Hunt Adventures has become one of my favorite authors and series.

Some bones were found in an old cave and are considered 'the missing link' and the story is based on this find. The author includes actual research on this. In this latest adventure Alex Hunt is asked to go find a tooth from the ancient skeleton. The catch is the tooth is in a war torn country, South Africa. The ancient remains had been found in a dangerous cave and the professor who was working the site had been killed. It is thought he hid the tooth somewhere and Alex has to find it. She is sent in with an experienced commando team to help her but things quickly go bad. She must rely on her skills and intellect to get her thru this. South Africa has become a violent place with gangs roaming the streets after apartheid ended. There is still a lot of tension. I liked how the author incorporated the story of the day Mandela was released and apartheid supposedly ended. One of the characters witnessed that event and helps out in the present situation. The bad guy in the story wants the tooth for himself to use it to change the world and mold it to his purposes. An interesting premise on how to use the tooth. Alex must not only battle the thugs in South Africa but him also. She is fighting to potentially save all of mankind. Very enjoyable read. Looking forward to Alex's next adventure. Received this book as an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I like a book that spurs me on to do my own research of social and political history. Teixeira did a great job of igniting curiosity in me about that subject as well as the actual discovery of Homo naledi in 2013. A novel that encourages me to learn more about the world in which we live is a fine one indeed.

Added to that are the action sequences which are at a nail biting pace giving enjoyment to the reader on every page. In this, Urcelia's third book, Alex and Sam have been recruited by the United Nations, and sent on a dangerous mission in war-torn Johannesburg, South Africa to recover the last remaining fossil evidence belonging to Homo naledi, the most unique human ancestral species found to date. Urcelia has written an amazing story, describing everything in detail, giving us as complete picture as she can of a country in turmoil, with it's citizens fighting in the streets. The professor who was head of the original archeological team was murdered before telling anyone where he hid the fossil. He had some eccentric methods such as using codes and message. But Alex was recruited for that very reason! She famous at deciphering codes and messages, tracking down relics, and her proven combat skills! The book is fascinating and you are in for a wild ride!

This time Alex is commissioned by the United Missions to find and assess the human remains of homo nadeli, who could potentially change the consensus on of human history.

Even with a knowledge of the actual historical background to the book, this adventure is the most surprising and unexpected in Alex career. An absolute must read!
