Summary

Some doors should never be opened.

When Rose Black’s sister goes missing, she once again calls upon Jake Crowley for help, but the two get more than they bargained for. The search takes them on a twisting journey, where danger lies at every turn. From ancient pyramids to lost cities, deadly cultists and conspirators lie in wait as Jake and Rose navigate depths few have dared on a pulse-pounding search for the Anubis Key!

Great story, which keeps you listening

A great follow up to Blood Codex, again following the adventures of Crowley and Black. This time they get involved in an ancient Egyptian cult. The story is fast moving and gripping and keeps you involved right up to the end. I do however wonder why an English narrator wasn't used for the book. Waters makes a good attempt at an English accent, but the voices are a bit stilted and odd to an English ear, plus a lot of American pronunciations for some words, which jump out to an English listener.

Anubis Key

Anubis Key by Alan Baxter and David Wood pulled me in immediately. I have always been drawn to stories with Egyptian mummies and pyramids. This book appealed to my imagination and sense for adventure. The story was fast paced and the descriptions painted vibrant images in my mind. Jonathan Waters was great bringing the characters to life. I really enjoyed this listen and will listen to more by this author and narrator.

Still loving this series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a great follow up to the first book. The byplay between Jake and Rose continues in this book and the action is fast-paced and fun. The narration is also still great. All in all, this is a fantastic action/adventure series well worth your time and credits.

Good story!💜

I’m really enjoying the adventures of Jake Crowley but I really liked book 1 more. In this storyline the connections and leads seem a little too far out there. But I’m excited to see where each clue leads and I absolutely love the bad assery in both Jake and Rose. The narration is fantastic. I think that Jon Waters has a way of giving us all the emotions and the feelings of each character. I can’t stress this enough, he has a wonderful female voice.
This book is continuing to book 3. I’m ready for more adventures and I recommend this book/series.

Unbelievably dull, badly written and dreadful dreadful narration

Ordeal to finish. The narration made an awful script excruciating to listen to. Avoid this one.

Anubis Key

Wow!Just wow!This was fast paced and full of intrigue. Jake gets sucked into a mystery surrounding an airport that is not quite what it seems.With horrendous murals and giant Anubis statues,this is not an ordinary airport. Rose starts the bowl rolling by hiring him to find her sister,Lily,who is missing. Jonathan Waters was a fine narrator.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'

A great sequel

Our team of accidental detectives teams up again to save someone... and so traipses about the world examining - and borrowing- historical items. Again, a stand-alone novel with few references ahead or behind, a great plot with some big twists, and lots of action.

Loved the first book this one failed

The first book “Blood Codex” was a book that kept me thinking and listening. Full of action and the narrator was great but with the “Anubis Key” I feel like the author just threw together some random thoughts and figured this book would sell based on the first book in the series. Complete let down.
Horrible narration boring boring and exhaustingly boring.
Better luck next time Alan Baxter and David Wood but I highly doubt I will read another book by these authors.

female character a blundering idiot

sometimes writers should just leave a character behind. Rose, the female character, should have stayed behind in book 1, or killed off very early in this book. She is an unkind, selfish, egocentric "feminist" who thinks she can do everything her male counterpart can do, but expects him to rescue her every time she acts like a blundering idiot. I honestly can't stand this character. If she doesn't die soon, I will not be able to finish this book.
