Temple of the Gods is the eighth thriller in the series of adventures featuring American archaeologist Nina Wile and her ex-SAS Yorkshireman husband Eddie Chase. I read the seventh novel Empire of Gold (Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase 7) immediately before and I was glad I did. It ended very differently from the books that preceded it - it ended on a cliffhanger that only immediate immersion in Temple of the Gods could satisfy. Therefore, you really should read Empire of Gold first. In fact, I would argue that you should give yourself a holiday treat and read the lot.

You don't need me to tell you that suspension of belief is a desirable quality when reading archaeological quest thrillers. It is certainly rewarded here. And while one may have visited Atlantis so many times in thrillers that it's almost as familiar as any other historical site that actually survives on a map, there's a lot less justification for its existence here than say in The Gods of Atlantis by David Gibbins. Andy McDermott revels in it. In the first of the adventures, Nina and Eddie met during The Hunt For Atlantis (Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase 1) and in this book they return to it, having found that their adventures elsewhere on the planet have all contained further clues to explain the ancient enigma of Atlantis, the hub of civilisation. All roads have led back.

But what roads they've been.

As usual this is Nina and Eddie in Action at its most dramatic,, although the plot this time has a little more edge to it than normal with Eddie on the run from all law enforcement (see book 7).
The story picks up where the previous left off building on the intrigue that surrounds the statues and what they can do and where they come from, the story loops back to the start with us looking back again to Atlantis.
(to give any more would be spoilers)

As usual you have Andy's electric pace, fun and over the top British humour and characterisation for Eddie and the firey passion that is Nina.
All the characters are just that bit bigger than life but that's the fun of action adventure, if you want reality go elsewhere, this is a balls out thrill ride from start to finish and great fun.

Andy McDermott very rarely misses the mark and this isn't one of those times, i ripped through this book in a single sitting, and loved every action packed over the top moment.

Bring on the next book please

Excellent action/adventure with an emphasis on action and we're talking about big, OTT style action akin to the most OTT hollywood action film ever. Matter of fact, reading this book is a good replacement to watching an action film as this book satisfies in the same way. It's very visual, has lots of twists and turn, great humorous dialogue, and the plot, more than the other Wilde and Chase adventures, is smooth like butter, and it's well-researched. This book deserves to be a best seller. Andy makes the book exciting. I particular like the scene with the Sharkdozer underneath the waters.

This is my first Andy McDermott novel and probably my last. There's a good story in here somewhere, but is completely ruined by the dialogue.

As a previous reviewer has written, it's an Indiana Jones-style search for some ancient stones that harness some form of paranormal creative/destructive power, with a number of bad guys thrown in to make it interesting, however...

The author, I assume a Yorkshireman, goes to ridiculous lengths to make his hero act and sound like a light-relief character from Emmerdale. We get it, he's a northern hero, but comes across less like Sean Bean and more like Zak Dingle - with all his bye 'ecks and Ay up's. It really is tragic and doesn't help the story at all. All I can picture is some out of place flat-capped Yorkshireman ready to make another stupid quip.

The lead characters are usually in mortal danger in every chapter which does make it exciting, but again the dialogue and daft one-liners take the fizz out of any situation. I had to keep putting the book down to put my head in my hands.

Sadly this was the only book I brought with me on holiday and I suppose was "Better than nowt" as Eddie Chase would say.

you either love or hate adventure thrillers
McDermott is amongst the best. ALWAYS ENTERTAINING. NEVER DULL. RUBBISH MAYBE, BUT VERY ENGROSSING AND THRILLING RUBBISH. Just give in to your inner child at the Saturday matinee, and immerse yourself in the adventure.
