Product Description

Review

Lightning-paced, chillingly real, here is a novel that will have you holding your breath until the last page is turned. One of the best debuts I've read this year (James Rollins)

The perfect blend of historical mysticism and clever, classical thriller plotting. Imagine the famed Ark rediscovered and reinvented to form the seeds of a modern day conspiracy. Boyd Morrison manages that flawlessly in this blisteringly-paced tale (Jon Land)

Like a thrill seeking ride in Disneyland, Morrison's thriller never pauses for breath... fast and furious with instant gratification (Daily Mail)

A bang-a-minute blockbuster (The Times)

Book Description

An explosive debut about the search for one of the most famous relics of our time

This is a great read. A full-on, fast paced thriller with lots of detail and intrigue, and a wonderful, implausibly good, protagonist. I downloaded this when it was a free download from the author's website, just on the off-chance that it might be worth reading, and was hooked right from the start. I've since read all of the author's other available work, and loved it all. Can't wait for the next one!

OK so yes, this has been done before - many people are pointing to Da Vinci code, but I'm in agreement with those saying Cussler - although to me it puts me more in mind of Atlantis Found than Plague Ship.

Lots of similarities to be drawn here: the "compellingly attractive" Tyler not only has the same qualities manifested by Dirk Pitt, but even has the tragedy in a previous relationship.... Tyler is also accompanied by a trusty sidekick, often referred to as "burly" or "stocky" - in fact on some occasions I found that my brain had automatically added "Italian" to those references to Grant. The general theme was the same - Respected yet feared businessman with unlimited resources meticulously plans to take over the world, everything runs smoothly until a couple of pieces of grit serendipitously get caught in the wheels, leading inexorably to his downfall. Tyler and Grant working for highly respected agency, placing them with good connections which are enhanced from previous distinguished military careers allowing Special Forces assistance... the list goes on and on... BUT...

For anyone who is a fan of this genre it is well worth reading. The themes and characters may be identical in all but name, but Morrison's keeps the story moving, ignoring Cussler's penchant for taking interludes using sub-plots or the inevitable NUMA briefing sessions. It makes for easy, enjoyable reading and has a kind of irresistable quality that makes it hard to put down.

Certainly a very worthy debut novel, and while some will find it sameish, if Cussler is your genre, Morrison should prove to be a worthy successor.

I am new to the writings of Boyd Morrison, having only read "Tsunami Countdown", which was itself recommended to me by a friend.
Now I liked "T.C." with it's simple storyline and simple characters, but "Noah's Ark Quest" is an altogether different kettle of fish - yes, the storyline is still simple without flitting too much to subplots and while the characters are relatively simple, the preposterous idea of an individual of the type that the baddie (Sebastian Ulric) is, does take some swallowing! Ultra rich man takes over an island off the coast of Seattle and builds an underground "Ark" with which to survive for a New World without let or hinderance? Come On! But, that said, this is but a minor complaint because the storyline is so fast paced that, even more so than with "T.C.", I kept turning pages and effectively read the whole story in a matter of a few hours over a week-end, which for me, is quite a rare thing to do.
The whole idea of a flood, in the biblical sense, is called into question, but the idea with which it is replaced is an altogether more sinister concept, particularly as we hear about another bird-flu contagion developing in the Far East again..!
Seriously though, if you are looking for a fast paced read that doesn't demand too much of your undivided attention, then I really can recommend that you give this novel a whirl - you will not be disappointed.
Me, I'm off to read "Midas Code" and "Roswell Conspiracy"!

I loved this book, it had action, it had style, it was sheer escapism, but also made you think. The main characters were likeable and there was never a boring moment. It was a book you could read with ease and still sleep at night (unlike the gruesome novels by Tom Knox.)

The start was a bit awkward, I'll admit, and bits of the introductions reminded me of Chris Kuzneski's characters, but very soon the action kicked in, the pace picked up, and I found myself caught up in an amazing adventure.

A female archaeologist whose father has been missing for 3 years is called to a meeting with one of her father's friends. He only has enough time to give her some clues, some seemingly disjointed words that make no sense, but set the clock ticking against her as the baddies go after her. The first person she visits trying to decipher the clues does not take her seriously till his life becomes endangered. They join forces to find out what is happening. Clue by clue, the mystery unfolds and it is now up to them to save the world - literally! Will they be able to foil the plans of the sinister cult leader or will he live to wreck havoc another day? And what has Noah's Ark got to do with it all - did it ever exist, and what was it exactly? To find out the answers... read the book!

I bought this book for my husband as a stocking filler for Christmas. He had already read a Boyd Morrison book on holiday, which he also rated very good. He says that The Noah's Ark Quest keeps you gripped and unable at times to put the book down. Highly recommend this book.
