Publisher's Summary

The unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood's Lost Empire, the second installment of the fantastic Fargo adventure stories. Read by the award-winning narrator Scott Brick.

While scuba diving in Tanzania, Sam and Remi Fargo come upon a relic belonging to a long-lost Confederate ship. An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery - but, unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase. Mexico's ruling party, the ultranationalist Mexica Tenochca, is intent on finding that artefact as well, because it contains a secret that could destroy the party utterly. Through Tanzania and Zanzibar, into the rainforests of Madagascar, and across the Indian Ocean to Indonesia and the legendary site of the 1883 Krakatoa explosion, the Fargos and their ruthless opponents pursue the hunt - but only one can win. And the penalty for failure is death.

    "Complex plot, lacking flow"

    For me listening while walking and doing chores this was not an ideal book choice. The plot was complex and forced with a lot of detail, even with Scott Bricks near perfect narration I kept missing vital plot points and having to "rewind". Personally I also felt the story didn't flow as well as the first in the series, parts seemed there as padding between some of the set prices. Enjoyable enough but not Cusslers best

    Story
    "I'm really starting to like the Fargos!"
    Would you listen to Lost Empire again? Why?

    As much as I enjoyed the book, I probably wouldn't listen to it again.
    That said, I do thoroughly recommend this title, as it's another very good tale, following the Fargos as they globe trot in search of lost treasure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lost Empire?

    I particularly liked the trek through the Madagascar rain forest.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favourite?

    There were some very good portrayals. Both Fargos were very good. Rivera was impressive too.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most definitely

    "Great adventure story!"

    Well narrated and great story. The Fargo's are a force of nature for history hunting.

    "A good book for fans of Clive Cussler"

    Overall this book has been a good read and for fans of Clive Cussler it's certainly worthwhile in the collection. That said however, I found Scott's voice to be a little monotone at times but overall he did a good job with the book. His accents were 3 out of 5 but when portraying female characters it was not the best - at time I had to force myself to imagine a woman behind the strong male toned voice.

    As for the story line this was a little weak for me especially compared to what I have come to expect from such a great best-selling author like Clive Cussler. That said, however, I did enjoy the book and am glad I purchased it.
