Product Description

Marc Royce stares down from the helicopter on the Rift Valley slashing across Africa like a scar. Tribal feuds, drought, and dislocation have left their devastation. And he sees a new wound--a once-dormant volcano oozing molten lava across the dry landscape-and clouds of ash obscure his vision. His undercover assignment is similarly obscured. Supposedly dispatched to audit a relief organization's accounts, Marc finds himself amid the squalor and chaos of Kenyan refugee camps caught in a stranglehold of corruption and ruthlessness.

But his true task relates to the area's reserves of once-obscure metals now indispensible to high-tech industry. The value of this rare earth inflames tensions on the world's stage as well as among warring tribes. When an Israeli medical administrator, Kitra, seeks Marc's help with her humanitarian efforts, they forge an unexpected link between impoverished African villages and another Silicon Valley rising in the Israeli desert. Precious metals and inventive minds promise new opportunities for prosperity, secure futures, and protection of valuable commodities from terrorists. As Marc prepares to report back to Washington, he seizes a chance to restore justice to this troubled land. This time, he may have gone too far.

    Davis Bunn's second book in Marc Royce series is another hit. Published by Brilliance Audio and Bethany House in book and digital format.

    New narrator, Phil Gigante, doesn't miss a step as this time we find Marc in Africa where volcano caused drought has deveststed this once rich farm land.

    As an accountant Marc is auditing a relief agencies books, while undercover he is looking for a missing aid worker. The relief agency is just one arm of a private security company and they don't want Marc asking any questions.

    As Marc quickly gets relief supplies from the tents to the needy he is given more responsibility by a local leader who gives him a blank check to get food and medical supplies into the refuge camps.

    Marc once again finds kinship with African leaders through Jesus Christ. One elder has visions of a man who will save the land and believes Marc is the man of his visions. Pressure rises fast as the truth comes to light as too why the aid worker has disappeared, and no one wants Marc to solve the problem.

    Marc Royce risks everything once again to find the truth and save the African village. This is a great humanitarian story with action and redemption.

    Marc Royce is a troubleshooter, and from the time he lands in the Rift Valley in Kenya, he is in trouble. He was expecting the poverty and wretchedness of the refugee camp he was sent to, purportedly to audit a relief organization, but he was not expecting Kitra Korban nor the adventures they would share.

    He meets tribal councils, the "rulers" of Kenya, and the powers behind all action there. He has harrowing escapes, goes on exciting escapades, and escalates U.S. action in the area.

    Rare Earth is a thriller and a romance, and rarely predictable - I could not put it down, nor could the other two readers in my household. My husband, after raving about the book, when asked to give it from 1 to 5 stars, gave it 4.5 stars. When I asked him why, he replied, "Because it ended!"

    This review was written for Rare Earth, Marc Royce Series #2.
    The beauty of a masterpiece is that you can look intently and see the many facets necessary to put together the finished product and appreciate the skill it took to create it. Rare Earth is like that masterpiece. The author took many facets of the story, put them together, and came out with a wonderful novel for all to read. The story covers three continents at least, as well as many types of people bonded together by their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Kenyans, Israelis, Americans, and many tribes are brought together through various events to help conquer the evil that looms larger now than when at first glance it appeared insignificant.

    American operative, Marc Royce, is at first sent to bring order to the supplying of various refugee camps in Africa. He is known as an accountant for a major company, but what else does this man know? Is there more to Marc Royce's story and history that will affect not only his future, but others' futures as well?

    Charles is a native African and pastor, who loves his nation and people. All who know him are aware of this and love him deeply. Philip, while the youngest of tribal leaders, is the chief among the men. Why? Deb is sent to help Marc with his mission only to find herself in a new position talking with a powerful man named Walton, Marc's boss. All this action and adventure are brought to the forefront in the novel by a volcano erupting and the subsequent need of the refugees for the basics to live. They need food, water, shelter, and medical treatment. Kitra is there to work as a medical aide, but there has to be more to her story, especially when her brother comes up missing.

    Now, to top it all off, the UN is sending in people. Are they really there to serve the nationals best interests? Who can be trusted and who is an enemy? The villages are taken from those who have owned them for generations, and "yellow men" have come to take some of the dirt for samples. Before the village elders know what is happening, they are forced to leave their homes and land with promises that soon they will get other land. Who is really pulling the strings to steal land and why? Why are Kitra and so many others in danger for their lives, hurt or even killed to keep someone or some secret safe? What is so important to cover up at such an expense of lives?

    Marc is told he is there to do more than he realizes because the chief of elders has had a vision about him. Kitra is afraid to allow herself to acknowledge what she feels about Marc. Marc is concerned for her and willing to fight to protect her. What role do the Holy Land and completed Jews play in the routing of those who seek to destroy Africa and her people? The land known as the rift extends far, but does it join two continents and her peoples together?

    With page upon page of mystery, intrigue, love, action, and adventure you will certainly find it hard to put this novel down. Davis Bunn has been given a wonderful story to tell to those who take the time to read it, as I hope you do. I hardly told you much about all this novel contains. Are you ready to unearth the treasure?

    Rare Earth

    By: Davis Bunn

    Rare Earth is an adventurous page turner revealing what happens when once-obscure minerals are discovered in Africa. How far will the Chinese go to retain the monopoly on these rare earths? Marc Royce finds out—all the way.

    What does it mean to be a hero? For most, it is to be called a great man. For Marc Royce, it is the true meaning—sacrifice. He is brought in as an accountant to audit a relief organization in Africa at a Kenyan refugee camp. Serge Korban is a medical technician who has been kidnapped and is presumed dead. Kitra Korban is his sister and is a nurse. They were working together in Africa at this refugee camp when he was abducted. A conversation in the beginning between Royce and Kitra set up the novel, "Think about it. I have been inserted into a critical situation. After an investigation that has stretched across three continents. No matter how much you love your brother, even you have to accept that more is at stake than one man's disappearance." Once I read this sentence, I was hooked on the book and wanted to see what was going on.

    A volcano could erupt at any time. Who can Royce trust to figure out what is going and why and who is involved? Lodestone employees, camp officials, church elders, UN officials, who can be trusted? Royce must find out in order to put his plan into motion to save the refugees, their villages, and protect the rare earths from getting into the wrong hands. And all has to be accomplished before the clock stops ticking. After reading this book, I will be looking for more Davis Bunn books!

    If you enjoy a heart-stopping thriller with page turning action, you will love this book! The descriptions of the scene in the hotel room where Royce is hiding from his attackers, the story of the baobab tree, and the final phase of going after the enemy, are a priceless piece to the story and are a pleasure to see happening as I read the book.

    I received this book free from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
