An awesome adventure
5 out of 5 stars
As anyone who reads my blog or reviews know; I love Jeffrey Kafer’s narration. He does such a great job narrating that you forget that you’re listening to a fictional book. He’s just able to bring the characters alive and make you forget you’re reading altogether.
I had to take a day or two after reading this to actually come up with a description that wasn’t full of hyperbole. I enjoyed this story so thoroughly that I was in a book hangover once I finished. About midway through, I realized that this was the third book in the Dane Maddock series, and quickly and frantically searched for more of them, to quickly realize that I already own some of them. (Yay me!)
The story was just fascinating. Mixing in old world history with new world adventure. Think the Da Vinci code mixed with Indiana Jones.
The adventures that Maddock and crew take will bring the reader to numerous places both in the cities and deep in the Amazon. The search and discovery parts made for a really fast-paced fly by the seat of your pants kind of adventure.
If you’re at all into adventure that’s mixed with some amazing historical research — Quest is definitely for you. I will be quickly checking out the other Maddock stories soon.
