If she can prove that exists, it will be the most important historical find ever found. Some of the people who enjoyed the first novel, were disappointed by the second book being a lot of action with almost none of the story that the first one had. At least half of the book is blow-by-blow description of preposterous fights, chases, escapes, etc. . Eddie and Nina have to stay one step ahead of the other people who want to get their hands on the tomb and find it first. Full Synopsis The world is in shock when Michelangelo's David is stolen from a museum in Florence, Italy.
Packed with adventure and action. When the Talonor Codex-a great Atlantean explorer's account of his travels-is stolen, it becomes clear that the thefts form only part of the raiders' ultimate plan. My Review: It has been almost forever since I read an adventure-action-thriller type of book. World is saved After 6 books, it's starting to seem a little far fetched. It started out a tad slow with a social event but then Eddie was chasing after a bunch of bad guys within a dozen or so pages. Fave scenes: How to choose from so many? I mean, it has action, adventure, weapons, fast cars, and, most especially, hidden treasure, all the things I love about this series.
I picked it up at the airport on my way back from India earlier this year. No one seems to know where they are. It added nothing to the story or the particular situation. Once I accepted that all that was important was that the story kept moving along at a break neck speed I was very happy with the rest of the book. The realism was definitely a weak point once again, but it was counteracted by getting to see all kinds of cool places. Really old to really new technology used to the max.
Nina and Eddie are present at an exhibit when the Talonor Codex is stolen even though there is heightened security. Perhaps take up If I were to review this book as a stand-alone novel, rather then part of a whole series- I'd have to say I would give it at least four stars. These books are a fun ride through and through, and book six was no exception. The codex holds clues to the location of the Vault of Shiva and its mythical contents: the chronicles of the ancient Hindu god of destruction himself. Of course, intelligence readers know this stuff is way outside the spectrum of the real and believable, but who the hell cares? Having said that, though, this book is still special to me. And, again, you'll end up sorely disap If you have seen Mission impossible and Indiana Jones, there is nothing much else in this book for you.
A treasure that is beyond the world's wildest imaginings, but which may also be the catalyst for its annihilation. I mean, it has action, adventure, weapons, fast cars, and, most especially, hidden treasure, all the things I love about this series. I say that because I sense that some fans are probably dropping off a bit, both from reviews I've seen here and the fact that it's the 6th book in a series which usually leads to a decrease in popularity or quality. Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are back in another epic contemporary adventure thriller. The latest in a series of audacious thefts of historical treasures, it's only a matter of time before another priceless artefact is targeted.
We currently have listed on the site and with more added each day. However, I still throughly enjoyed the book and the journey around the world, and Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are two of the most likeable characters in any book series I have discovered. He lives in Bournemouth, England. Come on Eddie and Nina, find a new hobby. He lives in Bournemouth, England.
The Indian couple, the Khoils, plan to find the Vault and usher in the end of the curre Priceless and precious art is being stolen from around the world. In about three years he's pounded out six excellent, exhausting books. I look forward to the next book and wonder if the foreshadowing that he's been giving for the past three books will finally wrap up in that one or if we have one more left before finding out what the heck is with those purple statues. When Michelangelo's David is stolen from its museum in Florence, it's only the latest in a series of audacious raids on the world's greatest treasures. Very easy to read I found it hard to put it down, and only then t The Sacred Vault, the sixth book from Andy McDermott, is a veritable barnstormer of a novel. A series of audacious heists - crowned by the latest and most daring one with Michelangelo's David getting stolen — start off this book to a action-packed story.
His work has drawn comparisons to fiction writing authors Clive Cussler and Matthew Rilley too. The final twist is setting up for the next book, that one was a bit of a surprise. And his descriptions have grown more lengthy and realistic as well. The sixth brilliant book from Andy McDermott - Clive Cussler's heir apparent. I love that this book, and a couple of books before this one, have focused on the ramifications of people trying to bring about the end of society in order to create a more perfect world.
