Summary

A lost world. An ancient code. A deadly chase.

Five ancient statues have been unearthed in South America, each containing a mysterious coded message hinting at an origin many thought impossible: the mythical world of Atlantis. As word of their discovery spreads, the prized figurines become a treasure bounty hunters will kill for.

CIA agent Heidi Moneymaker calls in the only team for the job: Guy Bodie and his posse of relic-hunting thieves. If they are to find the ancient civilization, Bodie and his team must decode a series of clues - starting with the cipher on the statues themselves - that will take them across the world and to the deepest depths of the ocean. But they are not alone in their mission.

Pursued by mysterious forces intent on keeping the legendary empire hidden, hunted by Chinese special forces and the relic hunters’ lethal foe, the Bratva, the team races to find the lost land - and Bodie’s enemies will stop at nothing to be the first to discover Atlantis’s secrets.

Really weak story

feels like a b movie waiting to be made. dubious scientific premise for the plot. If it wasn't for an OCD need to finish stories I'd have given up after an hour.

Fight Scenes

Impossible to believe. Leading male seems to whimp out when needed most. Usually saved by an impossible to believe female.

Relic Hunter's Mayhem

Another ripping adventure full of action & mayhem, its very graphic in the torture scenes. This being the second book it looked at the individual skill sets of the relic hunters. Good read I enjoyed it. Narration was good.

enjoyably average

Delivers what you would expect from a book of this type. All the typical tropes are here but they don't feel stale. Looking forward to the next one.

Formulaic

Just a clarification about what the first 2 Relic Hunter books are and are not:

IS NOT Davinci Code; no clever puzzles, historic depth, or edge-of-your-seat suspense.

IS NOT realistic. Examples include an objectified attractive female "street fighter" cum actress (heck, all the females are objectified stereotypes), impossible underwater waterfalls, factual misses in scuba technology, safecracking, and cyber security.

IS an action romp with most of the story dedicated either to blow-by-blow fighting or sentimental feel-good warm fuzzies about a family of altruistic theives.

Will probably make a smash of an action movie.

The awesome continues.

As with the first book, this one contains substantial amounts of awesome. I may have actually got a little teary eyed....

Good story and barely OK narration..



So, I read the first book, The Relic Hunters, and I liked it but this one the team just kept getting the sh*t kicked out of them and they were ready to fight again after about 4 hours sleep. It really was unbelievable at times.

The players: Bodie, Cassidy, Jemma, Gunn and Cross are a great bunch. I think I like Cassidy best since she can definitely kick some a*s. Heidi and Lucie, of the CIA, is pretty good too.

This was all about following the clues that lead them to the lost city of Atlantis and the Russian mob, the Bratva, and the Chinese special forces-like group were also on the hunt and that’s who Bodie and his people were constantly fighting, all trying to be the first to discover Atlantis.

No romance and the F-bomb was used 26 times.

This just came out but it was a free read and free listen. But you never know how long that will be.

As to the narration: Jeez, Pete Simonelli AKA Sebastian York truly is terrible. His women’s voices suck and he reads without any kind of emotions. No matter what he never ever whispers. The only thing he has going for him is his nice reading voice BUT you have to do more than read.

Possibly the worst book I’ve listened to

Bad narration. Bad pauses bad accents. Storyline he was superficial and disjunct. Predictable and repetitious.
