Publisher's Summary

The second in the thrilling new Hunters series from Chris Kuzneski. The Hunters. If you seek, they will find.... The treasure: For over 2,000 years, the legendary tomb of Alexander the Great - and the riches concealed within - has evaded discovery.

Now, after centuries of searching, an ancient map has come to light that could hold the key to finding the fabled vault. Only one team has the skill and the expertise to solve the mystery once and for all. The mission: It's up to The Hunters - an elite group assembled to track down the world's greatest treasures - to find the tomb. But on arriving in Alexandria, it quickly becomes clear that hostile forces are on their trail.

And when one of the team is captured in cisterns deep below the city, what began as a treasure hunt becomes a deadly rescue mission. For there are some who will use any means possible to destroy The Hunters' efforts, and now there is more at stake than they ever could have imagined. High-octane action. Brilliant characters. Classic Kuzneski.

Get a new narrator

I had to continue with this series even though the first book ate away some of my brain cells. It's s good story but the narrator kills it. No personality no emotion. It's like listening to cardboard

Wrong narrator for the story

Clichéd story, by the numbers action and irritating protagonists backed up by an narrator not suited to this story means you have been warned.

A thrill ride

Another action-packed adventure. Some twist and turns, some you'll see coming but others that you won't. Some may even have you shouting at the book in shock. The humour is still very evident and a big part of what makes this series fun, the pop culture references are a nice touch. I'm looking forward to the next book.

I had a different version of this audiobook and only managed about 15 minutes, maybe it was because I had just finished 'The Hunters' but the characters sounded wrong and whiny. Luckily I was able to return it and use the credit to get this edition.
I love Dudley Hinton's performance and was so glad to experience the characters as I imagined them, thanks to his performance in 'The Hunters'. The performance is smooth and engrossing, the characters are each very distinct and identifiable. I look forward to listening to more.

Flabby story, too much exposition

The author went for a shock value moment towards the end of the story, presumably to try and breath some life into a slow plot with many unbelievable elements. For me it didn't work and soured the whole thing for me.

Not For Me

I chose this rating as I found it really difficult to get into. The plot sounds fantastic, unfortunately the accents and poor storytelling were too distracting.

As good as Clive Cussler

What made the experience of listening to The Forbidden Tomb the most enjoyable?

It was a good story line. Strong characters very well written. The story line kept me gripped from the start.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the characters and their complex interaction with each other, the underlying tensions and friendships, but loyalty when it counts..

What about Dudley Hinton’s performance did you like?

Good consistent reading with good characterisation making the story enjoyable to listen too.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No it wasn't really that type of book, as it is more military based.

Any additional comments?

Great book. I would recommend it.

first time

this is the first audio book I have listened to, it was well read and I really enjoyed it, the only thing that I was not sure about was the narrator doing different accents for each character, I think I would have preferred him to just read the book

Dont waste a credit

Would you try another book written by Chris Kuzneski or narrated by Dudley Hinton?

Id maybe try another book but not if it was read by the same narrator

How could the performance have been better?

Read by someone else

What character would you cut from The Forbidden Tomb?

Hard to tell as the narrator ruined every character
