The Colorado Sequence by Stacey Cochran

Official Blurb

Physicist Dr. Amy Levine has discovered a mathematical sequence--the Colorado Sequence--that describes an underlying pattern and a guiding force within the very fabric of reality. Now she's on the verge of an astonishing breakthrough, and the U.S. government wants to know how she has done it. How has Dr. Levine learned to accurately predict the future? And they're willing to kill her to find out. Levine and a group of friends escape to Colorado to unravel the mystery of the sequence, but there they become snowbound. They must locate a secret treasure room, find a hidden key, and answer an ancient riddle before a devastating eruption destroys them all ... and the power of the Colorado Sequence is lost forever.

My Review

This sci-fantasy novel is amkind of sequel to "Amber Page and the Coral Stone". The story doesn't star Amber Page, but Amber does appear in this novel and it is set after that other novel.

There is a new reader for this novel who does an outstanding job. However I did notice a couple of second takes that havn't been edited out.

The story is full of the bizarre, the strange, the sci fi, the fantasy and all of it revealed amongst our own modern world. The story has a rip roaring start and it doesn't really settle down after that, action followed by more action with a side order of action.

Let's see if any of the following appeal to your taste. Cliff hanging, actually hanging off a cliff. Beatutiful and mysterious glowing girls. Martial Arts. Alternate realities. Huge fantasy battle. Riddle. Machines of Super Science. Man versus Nature.

Any of that appeal? This a great audio novel that will make the time fly by. I wish it would be made into a hard hitting mini series!

This is a great story.
