The Devil's Breath

By David Gilman

Max, a teenaged boy at Dartmoor High, discovers that his father is missing. Max's father is an expert in studying environmental catastrophes. Max leaves school and journeys to Namibia to try to find his father. After many dangerous and life-threatening events, Max discovers why his father is so interested in the area.

The book is listed for ages 11 and up, but since it is over 400 pages, I suspect that only motivated readers would get through it all. On the plus side, there is a great deal of action. Max's physical training gets him through multiple seemingly impossible to survive dangers. If while reading the book, the young reader learns about environmental issues, then the story is worth reading.

I received the book for an honest review.

PS: According to a review I read of the book, the subsequent books in the series are better.
