MENAGERIE was written by Rick Jones and published by Hive Collective in June, 2012, and can be purchased from  You may find out more about the author at

Rick Jones has once again taken a cue from the distant past and turned it into a modern-day adventure story for thriller lovers everywhere. MENAGERIE combines ancient archeological facts with unknown possibilities from beyond our universe to bring readers another Alyssa Moore/John Savage adventure that will keep them nail-biting and turning pages into the wee hours.

An earthquake has uncovered something strange two-thousand feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, and John and Alyssa are tapped by the DOD to investigate and gather information. What they find is a remnant of an ‘ark’ from somewhere in outer space, filled with something dangerously unexpected; along with a new theory about the near-extinction level event that took place millions of years ago on the edge of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Now, with DOD mercenaries and predators of another kind on their trail, the two must find a way out or die a horrible death.

Jones’ writing moves smoothly along throughout the story, and the characters are talented and amusing, while still being flawed in a way that makes them more human. This story is taunt and exciting from beginning to end and will leave readers wondering what is really out there beyond our world.
