Who's more fun in action/adventure: Cussler, Indiana Jones, or Dane and Bones? Glad there is no reason to choose, but simply enjoy as many as I can!
David Wood has a prolific imagination and I have enjoyed every one of the Dane and Bones that I've read. Each stands alone very well. This one entwines known written record with fantasy and real creativity. See publisher's blurb for plot clues and skip the spoilers to get the greatest enjoyment of the suspense. The humor will have you snorting your coffee when you least expect it!
I used to get them in print, but the guys just keep liberating them from my shelves. Now I try to get them as audio. Jeffrey Kafer is the best when it comes to audio performing these or any other action/adventure novels.

A fun adventure

Would you listen to Ark again? Why?

Absolutely, I loved the story.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I love the twist and turns the story takes. Never knowing who to trust and what is going to happen next.

Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

Bones! His performance of Bones never fails to entertain.

Any additional comments?

I love Maddock and Bones, I sometimes forget until I read/ or listen to another story and then I'm right back in the thick of things with them. The one liners are hilarious and definite laugh of loud moments. The story is intriguing and entertaining. It has a great mix of mystery, action and humour. David Wood's writing always entertains and keeps my attention until the last page.

Wish I had listened to more books in this series first!

Have ever watched a very good buddy movies like Indiana Jones 3 or Star Wars part V, and then realized you walked in the middle, I did that once with Paul Walker, Vin Diesel movies about driving crazy fast. The first one I saw was 4, I ended buying them all and watching them back to back, seeing 5 &6, &7 all at movies. Now how this relates to the book is that the is a high octane adventure for Noah's Ark with forbidden bible verse and underground tunnels, bad guys, rock people, It just keeps jumping. But down side, this is a middle book. So not a lot of time on character development which I guess was earlier in book one and two. Would love to back and hear from start.

Fast paced archeological action thriller!

Disclaimer: "This Audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audio Boom"

Narrator Jeffrey Kafer is the best! When it comes to audio performing, he is truly a voice actor. From male characters to female, or anything! -The characters are always fantastically performed! As expected, characters emotions and action scenes were wonderfully done! (*˘︶˘*).。.:*♡

This was my first taste of the Dane Maddock series. Being the seventh in the Dane Maddock series, it is a great story with an incredible amazing ending. Having no previous knowledge or familiarity with the characters, it did not disappoint me or leave me clueless. You get a sense of their lives, careers and family life. I loved the writing, descriptions to the point you could imagine the surroundings. To those checking out adventure books, it's best to read publisher's summary and skip the reviews altogether. You will not want to come across any spoilers. ('• ω •`) ♡
I wished the story was longer; as in "not ever ending". It starts with a quest to find a family treasure. After Bone's grandfather is attack by men wanting to know about the family secret, Dane Maddock and his partner Uriah "Bones" look into the family's treasure and legend. Clues lead them on a quest to find Noah's ark. Fast paced action thriller with humor, romance, religious artifacts, treasure hunting, secret societies, and mystery. I do however, want to go through it again. The writer mixes historical facts with fiction. Left me wanting to know a lot more about these facts, and always on the edge of what would happen next. I couldn't put it down. An amazing book for Teens, Young Adults and adventure lovers・*:..。o○☆

Dane & Bones Are At It Again!

Any additional comments?

I finished listening to this today, and the combination of a Maddock and Bones story and Jeffrey Kafer narration can't be beat. I really enjoyed the Noah storyline in this book and thought it was handled well. I am always sorry for these stories to end, as they are highly entertaining, as well as historical. Excellent job!

awesome adventure

a great adventure. Loved the entire story. The most memorable part was when they were being hunted by the red necks in the Georgian forest. The narrator has a great voice making the characters quite believable.

Another Fast-Paced Adventure

Author David Wood's style of writing for the Dane Maddock adventures is a cross between Indiana Jones or National Treasure with juvenile (mild-sexual) humor similar to the Fast and Furious franchise. You're going to either love it or hate it because it's in every book. For me, well, it's the perfect formula for great entertainment. Wood puts in his research and it shows as the the mysteries unfold taking the listener on a well-thought out journey. It's a real ride!

The team of Kafer and Wood is perfect, IMHO. Kafer's voice lends the right amount of machismo to bring the dynamic duo of Dane and Bones to life. I will happily listen to any audiobook voiced by Kafer.

In this adventure, Bones' grandfather is assaulted and claims the intruders are after the family treasure. Dane and Bones are off to find the treasure which leads them to Africa. They band with a beautiful professor (of course) who proves to hold her own.

Mature content: mild language, mild violence (no sex)

I received a free copy of this audiobook upon my request. My review is unbiased and freely offered.

Disappointing

I read the first book in this series and really enjoyed it, so I then jumped to this one which is book 7. Not sure if I have missed out on the books in between or whether I was just not in an adventure mood, but I did not enjoy this book half as much as the first one. Clearly I am in the minority as all the other reviewers seem to have loved this one, but I found that I kept tuning out of the story and didn’t really care about what was happening, I also found the character Dima quite annoying. Maybe it was me, maybe it was the storyline, but the book really didn’t grab me. Disappointing.
