Wow! Lots of action going on here and definitely some good suspense. I loved this MC, started off pretty Robinson Crusoe-ish. I wanted to know more about him and what was going on. Great job! ^_^

This was a heart-touching adventure story(is there such a thing?). One thing that I questioned, how did he get seperated from the rest of his company? I can figure it out, but I had to go back to see if I missed that.

Very visual and well written story. Great job.
Excellent descriptions! Very good job making the reader feel as if they are there - and congratulations on your placement!
Joy, your name is fitting of your writing, because it brings me great joy when I read it.

I seriously would have thought that you yourself had actually been a soldier out there fighting in the deep jungles, because your writing felt very authentic and real as I was reading it.

How many more ECs before you move up to masters? I'll miss you in advanced, but you deserve to be up there. Congratulations on another well deserved first place win!

War, bombs, tanks, caves...A female writer who can construct a great "guy" story - very well done! I got captivated by this one, and I wanted to read more, probably like the rest of your readers. Congratulations on a well deserved EC!
First I want to thank you for your comments on Shadow Man. And reading Prisoner of Eden made me want to read the rest of the book! :o) Exciting, riveting reading! Wonderful tribute to your dad!
