Marc Royce stares out of the helicopter, a sense of foreboding rising with the volcanic cloud. Below, the Rift Valley slashes across Africa like a scar. Decades of conflicts, droughts, and natural disasters have left their mark.
Dispatched to audit a relief organization, Royce is thrust into the squalor and chaos of Kenyan refugee camps. But his true mission focuses on the area's reserves of once-obscure minerals now indispensable to high-tech industries. These strategic elements—called rare earth—have inflamed tensions on the world's stage and stoked tribal rivalries. As Royce prepares to report back to Washington, he seizes on a bold and risky venture for restoring justice to this troubled land.
But this time, Royce may have gone too far.

Joy In Our Journey's Review:
In Rare Earth, Bunn brings us back to his very likable character, Marc Royce, to again be the main character of the story, and he is better than ever! The plot, storyline, and setting are totally different from the first book, but this one is also a great read. There is a lot of action and suspense, and I learned a lot about the area and about "rare earth", which was a new term to me.
It is obvious that the author had to do a lot of research for this one, and it really shows. The end result is a book he should be proud of, and is definitely worth reading. Although it is the second book in a series, it can be read as a stand alone, as it is an entirely different story.
I received one copy of Rare Earth in exchange for my honest review of this book. No other compensation was provided.
