A mysterious Mongolian mogul harbors a dream of restoring the conquests of ancient Mongolia.

    "Another great adventure."

    Yet another great read by Clive Cussler. From the start I was totally immersed in the world of Dirk and his companions, carried away in my mind into the sights and sounds of the story. Clive Cussler has a way of gripping my imagination and holding it firmly throughout the story which isn't always an easy feat as my mind wanders easily if the story isn't good. The characters come alive so well in my mind I feel I know them personally, his descriptions of the locations are vivid and realistic and the storyline gripping to the point of annoyance when I have to turn off the book for awhile.

    "waste of time"

    OK I suppose I do not like Cussler's style. I read one of his books many years ago, gave it another try. Very disappointing, constant action with no soul. shallow characters, no emotional attachment to them, constant surprises that are disappointing (oh no that not how it should develop).

    If you like these books I am sure you'll enjoy the constant action, I found it shallow, disappointing and was desperate for it to end so I can listen to a better book.

    "Treasure of Khan"

    Really good adventure. And nicely read. Really enjoyed it. I always enjoy a good adventure that is well written and has a sense of humour.

    "Disappointing, with a dreary narator"

    This is the first Clive Cussler book I have listened to and it will probably be my last. The story was interesting but poorly executed. Some events were scarcely credible in their details which spoiled the story for me.



    This was compounded by the abysmal narration. I have no preference on the accent the reader has, but I do expect to have some dramatic input from the reader. This tale was delivered in the same undulating nasal tone throughout, irrespective of the drama, levity or indeed any other emotion that may have been appropriate to the events being unfurled. I will not be purchasing another book read by Mr Brick.
