Book Discovery - newly-published and overlooked books!
Shadowline Drift, by Alexes Razevich
In the rainforest, reality and illusion become one.

Jake Kendrick is a brilliant negotiator, everyone agrees, even though—or maybe because—he’s only three and a half feet tall. When a substance is discovered which holds the promise to end world hunger, he seems the perfect person to secure the rights from the equally small Amazonian chief, who seems to hold the only supply.

Dangers and secrets fill the jungle. The chief is not what he seems, nor is the substance. Blocking Jake’s escape to warn civilization are a mysterious group of indigenous people, a teenage sorceress, a beautiful anthropologist – and madness.

Action-packed Science-fantasy thriller.
