My Thoughts and Summary:
*I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

This is an older audio book for Jeffrey. And I enjoyed it. Jeffrey was free to voice different people with different tones and accents, making them all unique and easy to know who's talking in the story. This is just fun to listen to. Jeffrey's voice feels perfect for Dane and Bones's personalities, along with the crew around them. As always, the audio is seamless and clear.

I think I say it every time I listen to one of these books, I just love the easy sense of humor I get from Dane Maddock, Bones, and all around them. They make me smile and I enjoy their dangerous adventures. Avery even has a wonderful sense of humor, even in a time of stress. lol.

Our guys meet Avery for the first time in this book. She seems to fit in perfectly. lol. And there's a reason for that. We learn it here. I love Angel, Bone's sister. She's one kick butt kind of woman, just as tough as we would expect. She gets into the rough and tough fights just like the boys. Oh and this woman can hold her own in those fights.

I enjoyed learning a bit more about Dane's parents in this book. The project we are on is connected to his father's research. Sadly, his parents were killed in an auto accident, but we see their impact on Dane which gives us a feel for them.

We also see the beginnings of other groups that could be trouble for Dane and Bones after this book, and I know it will be. Also that Dane and crew will work with in the future.

What they find! Oh my! Then my minds wheels start turning. How did something like that come into existence so many years ago? In a time it shouldn't be! Very interesting. I can't tell you what they find as it'll take the wow away from you. You just have to read or listen to find out.

I enjoy the writing as we focus on the current job/project that we are on. There is always enough to bring us to want more as well, to solve all the mysteries behind the ages old treasures. And there are more books to do just that. Though, there is two places where the wrong character was named, someone who wasn't even there at that moment. But, I'll over look that with the love I have for these characters and thrilling stories. (Heck, this audio is from 2012, so the book could have been re-edited to fix it since then, in case you read it.)

I find I get anxious when listening to these stories. I want to sit and listen to it all on a fast speed so I can get the whole story right now! lol. I don't. I listen at regular speed to savior all that's said and the performance by Jeffrey.
