Format: Paperback
Andy's third book is another belter. It's more character driven than his previous two although there is still plenty of action and set pieces.

We see a more human side to Chase as he trys to come to terms with who he is and why he does what he does. There's interesting conflict between him and Nina and also with his family. Nice to see these new charcters introduced. Eddie's grandmother will make you laugh out loud.

The baddies are all suitably evil and the story is extremely interesting. The legend / myth of King Arthur is explored deeply and you'll be surprised at what's real and what isn't.

As usual, there's also lots of humour amongst the action. A big lorry has just been taken by Eddie and his exit line is, "Let's truck off". If you can't laugh at that then maybe you should check your pulse to see if you're alive.

As action / adventure books go this is another superb effort. Andy knows want he wants and what his readers want and he delivers in style.

Thanks again, Andy!

If you like films that are slightly far fetched, like Die Hard, where one man is more than any normal man, this is a book for you. action packed and a great story line.

It's not essential, but I'd advise starting at the start of this line of books as they have the same character all the way through them and gives you more of a back story.

after you read this, you'll want to read the next book

Nina & Eddie continue on their adventurous quest to resolve ALL the mysteries in the world! As usual, a well written story that does not necessarily keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through, but does so in enough places to keep you wanting more. A hard book to put down and well recommended.

I enjoy these books by Andy McDermott and here is yet another fun filled, non-stop action based thriller.
Hugely enjoyable, easy to read & any fan of Andy McDermott or any fan of action books at all should read this.
Probably better to read the books in order though & make sure you read the other books in this series first.

The book reads like an overlong screenplay for a direct to video action movie. I guess the publisher was looking for an author to rival Matthew Reilly. The paper thin characters crash from one life threatening situation to another. The set pieces are heavily contrived and each one takes place alongside an army of exclamation marks. I'm not a book snob by any means but this isn't a patch on Reilly and neither are as good as an early James Twining or an early Dan Brown; they might look the same, have a decent amount of reviews, but they aren't in the same league. If this was published to get young boys back into reading then fair enough, I'd hold off the criticism, but it wasn't and I was duped. I'm upset because I paid full price and then struggled through to the bitter end. My local library is doing a six book challenge - a scheme to get less confident readers into books - this is heading for that pile.

Andy's third Wilde and Chase adventure has a great mix of archaeology - this time centred around King Arthur's sword - great, well thought action sequences and great set pieces. The plot is thought out with plenty of twists.The action is breathtaking, and there are also emotional bits, especially from Chase's side. There's a great human element thrown in here amongst the mayhem. Only criticism is that it's a bit overlong.

Loved the ongoing relationship growing pains between Eddie and Nina, the introduction of Eddies family and the ever present cultural references. This was definitely better structured than Hercules, and for two thirds of the book is actually about the search for the sword. There was the usual high body count and skin of the teeth escapes, but there is an attempt to recognise the human emotions of the main characters.

Given that there were again references back to Atlantis (one fairly significant) and Hercules, what I interpreted to be a link to the next novel and a teaser ending I sense some broader story arc / thread emerging. So, I'm looking forward to the next books.
