...this thrilling adventure featuring Cati and Owen leaves the reader satisfied with the resolution, which is not at all pat, and hungering for more. Another walloping good read from a master of the trade.

I didn't read the first book in the series but I was able to get into this one right away. Interesting concept, running out of time...
I liked Owen and his traveling companions but I had trouble with the dogs. I did like the Yeti and his intelligence.. The museum would have been a great place to do a bit of exploring and maybe a chapter on what it contained.
And saving the world with only 3 minutes left on the clock, whew!
I will watch to see if there is another book after this one, I couldn't really tell if the story was going to continue.
I would give it 3 1/2 *'s
