arkwrightSub-Sahara by Ethan Arkwright opens with a team of archaeologists digging in the desert hoping to find a significant discovery of ancient ruins. They eventually uncover what appears to be a tomb with a tunnel at the end and are excited to find out whether their dig will lead them to important historical relics. Suddenly, and with little warning, a wind storm leaves them trapped in the tomb and isolated in the middle of the Sahara Desert. The archaeologists are able to emerge from the tomb and find that the winds uncovered a massive ancient city with a large silver pyramid at its center. It turns out that the pyramid has a strong energy source still emitting power even after thousands of years. Soon there is a race for the nations to battle over what could potentially be a new form of energy that could be used for either the greater good or for evil, and a British team of Special Forces agents are at the center of the fight to bring it to scientists to be studied.

Most of Sub-Sahara is a detailed account of the fighting that takes place over the mysterious energy source. It starts off fast-paced and extremely intriguing, but seems to go on long enough for the reader to begin to lose interest. The plot has an interesting premise and good character development, and the reader roots for the leader Cavill and his team the whole way through as they suffer losses and near defeat. It is an action-packed tale of discovery and modern-day battle that is both engaging and extremely enjoyable.
