I'm going to start with the narration for a change because wow. Jake Urey's narration is amazing.
I can't say that I'm that familiar with horror based in an archaeological setting. But I like it. It's a great creepy tale with a brilliant sense of pace. We get twists and turns and I certainly keep wanting more.

I really enjoyed this book. It's edge of your seat suspense and you are gripped from the start to the conclusion. A really cool book! Jump in and enjoy!!!

Wow. We have everything in here. We get alien creatures that appear through portals wanting to devour everything. We have a skilled group of defenders who attempt to save us. There are special powers with loads of fighting. Sprinkled with betrayal and intrigue. It's great!! From start to finish I was dawn in and wanted more!

The narration was very, very good. I really like Jake Urry's voice.

I love the premise of this story. I also love how well its executed.
It feels strange to say that I can see the logic and humanity of SIMPOC. I also like the other both AI and human characters. The story is great. From the first book to this one I'm blown away. Excellent writing. Narration that I also really like which helps to give the characters even more depth. Very good. A great story from start to finish. All the books are great! My only complaint is that I have to wait for the author to write more!

Great and yet again varied - always wanting more!

I really want to start this review with a spoiler. But I hate that so I'm stopping myself. I loved the start. I told myself I knew what was going on. I loved the way the story moved. I really tried to guess one of the questions in the book but didn't. It made me like it more. This one is very Jason Bourne ish. I loved it for it. I like the books anyway but this was cool.

I'd love to be so well trained/skilled that I could pull off the thinking and actions that Sam does. I think he could based on everything we have seen so far. I also really like the way his friends have got his back because as we have seen in this series. He is always there for them.

Another great book!!

I personally like to get into the characters that are in a book and the author has taken the time to craft the characters. We get lots of details, we explore their personalities, and see their background stories. And I'm not just talking about the main characters, but the secondaries as well.

Christian is a great character and the one that draws us into this work. I liked the premise of the book where ancient deities choose humans to become.

The plot is interesting and really kept me engaged.
I also really like the narration which fit well with the story.

I really like this series. In fact I keep saying that its my current favourite of all my audiobooks. They are so different but keep with a theme around the Master Builders which personally I really, really like the idea of. This collection really gives us a mixture of different types of Sam Reilly adventures. They are all great. In fact all Sam Reilly adventures have been great. I really like these books. He's an intelligent hero, a man who acknowledges the fact that he relies on his friends. Its a mixed bag of friends from all over the world which I think is also great. Basically we are on a roller-coaster ride that is entertaining from start to finish!!

I love where we go with this. The new character that we have introduced in this one I hope comes back for me.
I love the start. Not really much water action in this one for a change. I like everything that goes with Sam's life and its not like he's a one trick pony so from his kidnapping to his ultimate adventure swept me along. In fact I loved how different this one was. Excalibur was very much the same in that it also added a sense of slightly different depth to the series. The Sam Reilly books are great!!

The narration is excellent. I love the narrators voice as it keeps me listening for longer than I should at times. Although the excellent story does of course also do that!

I love Sam Reilly books. Sam is cool but then so are all the characters. We have a great diverse range of characters so the writer can dip in and out of using them alongside Sam. ave not yet had one of these books that I've not enjoyed. Literally they are all massively entertaining. The writing has a great sense of pace. We have twists and turns. It's great. I love the background story that each story touches on that I have to admit I can't wait to get even more detail on. Really, really great!!

The narration remains excellent. I couldn't imagine Sam without it.

I really enjoyed the premise of the book. I really liked Natalia Lyons - our main character. She is navigating a world that's thrown out abnormalities in both humans and other things. She's working for an organisation that seems good. But is it? She has a boyfriend that seems pretty cool but is he? Her team mates can be a bit too much but do they have her best attentions at heart? I liked the tension and the story in general. I enjoyed a female lead who can kill everyone in the room but is also vulnerable, maybe a little messed up in a normal way for a non-normal setting. I liked the ebbs and flows of the book it really kept me engaged.

I also really liked the narration as that also kept me engaged and it was a voice that I enjoyed listening to.

The characters remain great. It centers even more around Della which works really well. We also see a few minor characters become a little more important to Della's life and her relationship with her father deepens. There's sadness and triumph. It's action packed with a great pace to it. On one hand it never lets up on the other I don't feel like I'm getting rushed. The story is great!

I love the narration which adds very well to the story and engages me wanting to make me listen to the entire book in one sitting!
