"Dave, what do you see?"

The air in the cavern seemed to lose all moisture instantaneously, leaving him parched and without words. A sudden sensation overcoming him, of being infinitely small.

He was the first man to walk here, four and a half miles into the earth. The recently discovered cavern presenting a unique chance for research and exploration; a subsequent program getting him here to conduct it.

"Dave, are you there?"

The great chamber stretched out around him; the walls perfectly chiseled from the stone, partly comprised of some unknown metallic element. A radiating energy pulsed through the entirety of the chamber intermittently, like a beating heart. An overwhelming pressure was building inside of him, his legs feeling as if they would give way at the slightest notion of a breeze.

He didn't know what to tell them about this; the Sumerian glyphs, the mechanical and organic chimera that was the very chamber itself? He was beginning to sweat now; a cold feeling creeping up the back of his neck, so that the hairs stood on end.

How could he explain the button he had just accidentally pressed, labeled only "Reset"?

"Dave...?"

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

mindushree1402: It was really amazing.... I was not able to put it down..... just beyond awesome... no wonder writers do play with words... amazing storyline.... addictive too... I was so used to it that even when I'm not reading it story was continously streaming in my mind.... good job... I really liked that f...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.
