A Relic Hunter Thriller
(Treasures of the Ark Book 2)
by Neena Roth
The mystical staff of Aaron. A dying scientist. Will this latest treasure of the ark discovery heal him… or release a deadly plague?
Archeologist Nichole “Nikki” Strauss thought she would finally have a future with the love of her life. But the outbreak of a horrific plague that leaves some dead and others healed threatens everything—and everyone—she loves.
After a family friend is infected and dies, Nikki finds herself in pursuit of the mystery man wielding this staff that either heals or kills. But when he makes an offer to heal Jerad, Nikki is presented with an impossible choice between saving the man she loves or protecting the world.
Can she save Jerad and prevent a global pandemic?
Staff Dominion is the heart-pounding second book in the Treasures of the Ark thriller series. If you like conflicted characters, high tension, and the saving power of love, then prepare to have your breath taken away by the second book in Neena Roth’s captivating series.
Robin's Review: So Moses spoke to the Israelites, and their leaders gave him twelve staffs, one for the leader of each of their ancestral tribes, and Aaron’s staff was among them.
— Numbers 17:6 (NIV)
A fictional tale about the Staff of Aaron and the power it has depending on the “owners” desires with good and evil having their own specific motives in wanting it.
This was a fast paced story full of action and suspense. The plot was interesting in that it involved many genres all put together nicely. The main characters and the love they felt for each other were compelling. This was a remarkable book and I wouldn’t mind going back and reading the first one in this series.

Taken: A Detective Al Warner Novel
(Detective Al Warner Suspense Book 6)
by George A Bernstein
The corpse of a Miami hooker is discovered in the Everglades, and Detective Al Warner is on it. He discovers other streetwalkers have disappeared, and a simple homicide is now a case of human trafficking. Nicki, a female undercover cop, goes on the streets, hoping to be snatched so she can use a concealed tracking device, but it’s taken from her before she can activate it.
Maggie is offered a lucrative deal as a birth surrogate for a secret, wealthy couple. She’ll live nine months in managed seclusion. Another surrogate there disappears a month before her term. Maggie learns her fetus is a tool of extortion, and fears for her life. She attempts to flee the mansion, but her “hosts” refuse to let her go. Her life is trivial, but they need the child she carries.
Trapped at the bordello on a remote ’Glades Island reached only by airboats, Nicki embarks on daring foray to find and activate the tracker. If she fails, she’ll become a sex slave like the other women imprisoned there, with little hope of rescue. Warner and his team eagerly await Nicki’s signal. Without that, there’s no clue to her location, and no idea of the deadly confrontation that awaits them. Warner is thrust into danger as he seeks to free the sex slaves and also rescue Maggie and a second infant before it’s too late. Lives are on the line, and only Al Warner can save them.
This was a story with some of the previous characters from the other books in this series
coming back to help the main character to investigate missing and murdered women.
While being well thought out it was written with a male’s point of view concerning the sex slavery of women. Showing no empathy and or emotion to describe the characters past their looks, left me wanting more. There were a few prejudices that came through in the telling of the story and I was unsure whether they were the authors own prejudices or the characters.
