Summary

Decades ago, a mysterious treasure vanished in the middle of the night. But the secrets it held were worth more than gold.

The thrilling follow-up to The Secret of the Stones sends former government agent Sean Wyatt and his sidekick Tommy Schultz from the deserts of the American southwest to the hills and jungles of Ecuador in a perilous race to find the mysterious lost treasure.

The treasure is somehow linked to the legendary Lost Chambers of Gold that has remained hidden for thousands of years. But the chambers hold a deeper secret, one on which an evil mastermind has his sights set.

Along the way, Sean and Tommy find ancient clues that lead the way to the next of the lost chambers, and with a little help from the beautiful Adriana Villa, they may be the first to reach it.

A good adventure story

Really enjoying this series and looking forward to more. Good narrator although the voice used for Tommy is a bit odd

ok, but I kept losing interest!

Too much running around with not much plot. a bit so so, and I would lose interest. The others are much better.

Potential not found

Wanted this series to be good. Like some of the characters, but can’t see them being so blind to being followed. Here is a main character who is supposed to be paranoid and never checks for listening devices or figures out bad guys just happen to strike time after time. Gave second book a chance, but won’t listen to the third.

The clerics vault

While the book and series are good, the narration ruins the story. The
Story is full of fun history, and has interesting plots. Unfortunately, it is hard to take the story seriously when the narrator changes voice for the character s and makes them sound clowns and cartoon like.

The Hunt for the hidden chambers continues

volume 2 of the trilogy does a decent job of continuing the pace of the first book. Decent action and pacing. My biggest gripe is with the narration. Several of the characters sound absolutely identical. In some cases changing their "voice" and becoming identical.

Still, the story is good and I plan on continuing with the series, at least through the trilogy. Recommended for fans of archeological mysteries.

I wonder

At some point as I go through these stories why did I find the original so interesting. Granted it played out well, but some aspects of the plot are old hat stuff that is in every treasure hunting tale. Granted the story moves along nicely and is interesting, but not original interesting.
