Overview

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 2010: The Fifth World

*This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com, at my request. Given a message from her boyfriend who's two months lost in the jungle with a college trip, Kaylin's put in danger when she receives a package he left behind in hopes that she'll find him. Kaylin has one person she can turn to for help of this magnitude, her ex-boyfriend Dane Maddock. Dane and Bones help Kaylin find her boyfriend, and along the way could find the lost city that Percy Fawcett was searching for when he disappeared. This is an older audio book done by Jeffrey, and I really enjoyed it! It felt like he had lots of emotion and thought in each word he spoke. The characters feel different as he speaks them, even works to vocalize them slightly different too. I love that he's got a sound to a voice on the phone or head set too. I really enjoyed this performance! This is a wonderful example of what I love to hear when listening to audiobooks. David Wood is another author to use a Prologue to draw me into the story. He gives me just enough to understand and know what's happening but to leave me wondering what they want. Wow. After that, I need to know what needed to be taken away then what Fawcett was looking for! David works in the prologue through out the story, and into the ending. We learn the story of those of old in the prologue. The hints they left drive us along to get to the end. Well done. I do so enjoy Dane Maddock and Bones Bonebreak's banter and fun comments. They do make me smile. They are a duo I do enjoy listening to. Even with the rest of the crew that works with them on dives, they all fit together so well. Great team! Maddock and Bones don't show fear, they react. But I guess that's the SEAL in them. They are smart and figure out historical clues along with have the bronze to fight when needed. Such a great balance with them together and individually. We do get sections that is from the ScanGen as well. The owner and his lead employees. But in doing this we meet one of the new characters we'll deal with in the future. This is where we first meet Tam. And she tries to recruit Maddock and Bones on her team to stop the Dominion. Tam really makes an impression in this book. She's one strong woman. I really enjoy these adventures for the mystery and action, but also for the characters I get to meet. I want to get all the books with these characters, but also set in this world. I'm hooked!

Never met a Dane and Bones book I didn't like, and this one is no exception. When I read this, I could practically feel the jungle heat and humidity (and the flying biting things). These books are always guaranteed to make any firearm geeks drool a lot, and we suspense junkies get our fix that way. The author's research deep into history is amazing! and it is always integral to the storyline. The publisher's blurb is always a good teaser, but nothing can prepare the reader for the terror and plot twists.

Quest is the third in the David Maddock Adventures series written by David Wood. Dane and Bones are off on another adventure. Dane is asked by Kaylin Maxwell (from Dourado) to help find her fiancé, Thomas. He has gone off on a trek through the Amazon looking for Percy Fawcett’s path and has not made it back, just as Fawcett didn’t. Dane, while still dating Jade (from Cibola) still has an attraction to Kaylin and agrees to help. Especially after the bad guys show themselves to be very bad. Thomas received funding from ScanoGen. ScanoGenis looking for something more than Thomas is. Dane and his group find themselves running into ScanoGen goons while researching Thomas’ clue regarding where he was heading. They find themselves one step behind ScanoGen all the way into the Amazon. However, they manage to get ahead of ScanoGen and make it to Thomas and the prize first. I’m not giving it away here. You must read the book. This is a great adventure story that introduced me to Percy Fawcett (yes, I looked him up to see if he was real and who he was). It also introduces a theory about a lost Amazon tribe. An easy read with Dane and Bones being their wonderful selves, and their companions and crew rounding out a great cast of characters. You will find it very interesting. It’s a great story that young adults will enjoy too.
