I didn't receive my copy from First Wild, but I loved it so much that I've posted the preview chapter.

I have this up with a review. I've been having a stubborn computer and couldn't leave a comment sooner. Also, I tried to add in another link, but haven't succeeded yet.
The authors may not like my review as they haven't swung me over to the global warming theory yet.

as a skeptic of GW I've now got my tour and a review up - positive even though I didn't totally agree.
