1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE on 7 May 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The rich Indiana Jones universe certainly does lend itself well to a potentially infinite number of pulp novels, especially when written by a capable writer who is after more than just a quick buck. Rob MacGregor seems to a genuine Indiana Jones fan but fails to give this book any defining moment or iconic scenes.

The story has Indy working as a Professor at an English University (his first teaching assignment) where an admiring young student takes a shine to him and likes showing-off how much more about British history she knows than he. But things turn sinister when an ex-boyfriend apparently sends him poisonous spiders and warns him away from her. Deciding to get away from this hassle Indy helps her mother on a dig in a Scottish cave that may well have once been the domain of Merlin himself.

An intriguing set-up but nothing special really ever becomes of it and there's not much atmosphere to make up for the lack of action or suspense and the ending is a huge non-event. And what the hell is with the crass reference to Lord of the Rings? Puh-lease!

Nonetheless, it's still a fun book and worth a read.

THE STORY:
1925. Indiana Jones, having become a Professor of Archaeology in London, becomes entangled with his mysterious boss and her alluring daughter on an archaeological dig in Scotland. He soon discovers that the academic search for an ancient golden scroll is actually the life-and-death hunt for a power to take control of the world, a hunt which will end in the enigmatic ruins of Stonehenge.

WHAT'S GOOD:
The Indy portrayed here is much more like that of Harrison Ford, being more confident and worldly than the student version we saw in '...the Peril at Delphi'. The fact that it uses settings like Stonehenge also enhance the atmosphere of discovering ancient mysteries, something that seemed to be lacking in the last book. These and the overall pacing of the book made it feel more like the classic movies than its predecessor did.

WHAT'S BAD:
First of all, it's too much of a stretch to link Indy's investigation of the legend of Merlin with the Omphalos stone that Indy happened to find in Greece in the last book. It's as if the author wanted to create a continuity between the two stories but it's actually detrimental to this one (remember, there's little or no continuity between the films - because Indiana Jones' adventures stand alone on their own merit). I also grow increasingly incredulous at the constant reappearance of Jack Shannon. In the last book he was Indy's student room mate, happened to move to Paris at the same time as Indy and then followed Jones to Greece. Here, he happens to move to London at the same time as Indy and then follows him to Scotland for no apparent reason. He's not even that engaging a character - he's certainly no Sallah or Short Round. My final gripe is Indy's romance with Deirdre. Sure, there's only five years or so between their ages and it is the 1920s, but this book was written in the 90s when it is most definitely not cool for a Professor to begin a sexual relationship with one of his students.

I found the historical background in this book to be very informative and interesting, even if it was general. I think any more would detract too much from the story. I have read five of these novels now, and I have loved every one. The action is good, we know Indy is going to get through but we're not sure how, and I found myself reccommending these books to friends.

I may be 20 years behind, however these books were written while I was only a child, now an adult, I'm catching up on adventures undiscovered and loving every moment of them.

The first Indiana Jones novel by Rob MacGregor was good. Not great. But good.
This being his second is a massive improvement as he becomes more confident writing Indy's adventures.
The story was interesting and educational in places and has led me onto seeking out books of Myth & Legends around the world and throughout history. Indiana was certainly a lot more like the man we all love from the movies in this one. The charm. The attitude. The adventurer. While the story did have it's dull moments and a rather rushed, unimpressive ending. The hunt for the Golden Scroll and the Legend of Merlin was all round enjoyable.

I'd recommend this to any long time fans of the movies.
