Book Description

149 B.C.- Escaping just ahead of the invading Roman legions, a Carthaginian soldier carries an ancient secret to places unknown.

1925- Percy Fawcett launches his final expedition into the Amazon, but what is his true objective?

Dane Maddock is back. Deep in the Amazon, a university group encounters a horror beyond their darkest nightmares and vanishes without a trace. Called upon to undertake a daring rescue mission, Dane and Bones must trace the true path of Percy Fawcett's final expedition, but the secret that lies at the end of the search might be even deadlier than the enemies who seek it. From the streets of London, to remote islands in the Atlantic, to the deadly jungles of the Amazon, Dane and Bones must penetrate a secret lost to history, on their deadliest Quest.

"David Wood has done it again. Quest takes you on an expedition that leads down a trail of adventure and thrills. David Wood has honed his craft and Quest is proof of his efforts!" David L. Golemon, Author of LEGACY, THE SUPERNATURALS, AND EVENT

"Dane and Bones are back! Packed solid with action and witty dialogue, this rousing adventure takes a fresh look at one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century, David Wood delivers again with QUEST."--Sean Ellis, author of INTO THE BLACK and DARK TRINITY: ASCENDANT

"The escapades of Wood’s serial character Dane Maddock continue in high style with QUEST, an all-out blitzkrieg of a globe-trotting mystery-adventure that breaks from the action just long enough for a couple of laughs."--Rick Chesler, author of kiDNApped and Wired Kingdom

"Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. From the accessible writing to the wide-ranging plot to the main characters who don't give up no matter how long the odds, Wood's latest book, Quest, is a tremendous classic adventure. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop until the last mystery plays out in the final line." Edward G. Talbot, author of 2012: The Fifth World

"A non-stop thrill ride triple threat- smart, funny and mysterious." Jeremy Robinson, author of Threshold

5.0 out of 5 stars An action & adventure classic! 1 Aug. 2011
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition
I haven't read any of the books in this series, but will definitely be giving them a go now. The main characters are engaging and the action non-stop as the plot moves from one exotic location to another. Dane teams up with Bones to go on a search and rescue mission for a missing expedition. The `quest' changes to one that takes them around the globe to solve an ancient biblical mystery. There's a lot of intense action, but this is balanced with good character development and a few light-hearted moments between them that genuinely made me laugh. The scenes are also excellently described and I really enjoyed the author's flowing style of writing. This is one I definitely recommend for readers like me who are fans of the action / adventure genre!

Book 3 in the series and Dane and Bones are still at their best. I'm loving this series so it's a short review because I'm off to read book 4!
