Product Description

Product Description

#1 AMAZON BESTSELLER

When the body of Hunter Gearhardt washes up on the banks of a seasonal river outside of Pomacochas, Peru, with only samples of vegetation, a handful of feathers, two black- and gray-streaked rocks, and a golden headdress of indeterminate origin in his possession, his grieving father launches an expedition to determine how his son died. The party uses these clues to divine Hunter’s route into the jungle, where they find a surviving offshoot of a primitive tribe, long thought to be extinct, and something far more sinister, something that’s been able to avoid discovery for eons for one simple reason: No one leaves the rainforest alive.

Includes a free bonus novella: Xibalba.

5.0 out of 5 stars McBride hits his stride..... Oct. 7 2011
By Chris Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One word to describe this book? AWESOME! It has such an imaginative story line and intelligent prose, it made it hard to put this book down. The narrative is packed full of believable characters that you come to love or hate depending on the actor. It will suck you in from the very beginning and is packed with enough action to spin your head leading to an explosive ending. McBride weaves a tale reminiscent of Michael Crichton at his best and may have even surpassed that of the legendary writer--and I don't say that lightly, as Crichton is one of my favorites. McBride now has a new fan after reading this tale and if his other stuff is as good as this, I'll be sure to grab up everything I can from him. Huge thumbs up!!! I recommend it highly to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars BURIAL GROUND rocks Oct. 14 2011
By H. Casper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finished BURIAL GROUND today. I really enjoyed it. A real page turner and good sized novel. McBride's knack for extensive research and medical knowledge lends for great descriptions of culture, geographical areas, flora and fauna and human body destruction. Oh yea. MAkes you feel as if you are almost there with the characters and creatures, feeling the heat and rain and impending doom. It is as good or better than some his his best work such as REMAINS, INNOCENT'S LOST, BLOODLETTING and INFECTED. It's a great horror/thriller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good adventure romp April 17 2012
By Greg R Day - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This isn't a five star book, because I reserve 5 stars for those books that truly surprise me by how good they are. I don't differentiate between indy and traditional authors, because they both take up the same amount of my precious time.

So with that out of the way, Burial Ground is a very good read, and for $1 its a steal. Its the kind of book you take on a long plane ride, because you can read it end to end in one sitting. Its not deep literature and was never intended to be, but good characterisations, believable and interesting science, and great bad guys.

Highly recommended.

Greg

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate Read and Solid Value April 15 2012
By Mike P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a prelude, I must say the 5 star reviews with glowing accolades make me question the legitimacy of the reviews and my own perspective -- as a voracious reader, I am capable of acknowledging talent while indicating my own personal preference and very rarely issue 5 stars unless all the pieces are truly there.

BURIAL GROUND is an okay read and good value for the money. First, the positives. The plot is interesting and I found myself engaged in the events as they unwound. The story involves a man's quest to uncover the reasons behind his son's mysterious death in South America and involves a long-lost ancient Incan-like village and society, and heretofore undiscovered nasty creatures. The story primarily centers on a group of explorers searching the forest to solve the mystery of the son's death. It was a very interesting setting (not quite Indiana Jones as stated by another reviewer -- the vaguest resemblence at best) and a reasonably laid out plot. The author colors the setting reasonably well and you find yourself wanting to find out what happens.

The negatives: the story does tend to meander and the characters are somewhat one-dimensional. I found myself slipping past many passages, thinking "GET TO THE FLIPPING POINT ALREADY!". A lot of mindless description that unnecessarily slows the pace. Some may enjoy this, I did not. The characters -- you have your typical hottie newscaster/documentary gal, the lone quite pilot with a past he wants to forget, the crack military studs, a corrupt U.S. Embassy official, and some mercenary types. Token love interest that really doesn't come through at all, but I didn't mind that -- the story works well enough without "mad love in the jungle".

All in all, it was a worthwhile book, espcially for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars McBride for president! Oct. 29 2011
By Cassandra Gorgati - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Every day I wake up and wonder why more people aren't reading Michael McBride's work. He is a phenomenal writer and seems like a nice guy to boot. Burial ground, while not strictly horror (and therefore not my genre of choice), is without doubt one of the best books I've read this year. A real page turner with memorable characters and fabulous jungle locations (I swear I got some mosquito bites while reading this in bed!). Do yourselves a favour and download this today. You won't be sorry. If you are, I'll eat my cat.
