Overview

Nick Caine is a part-time archaeologist and full-time antiquities thief - a looter. And a very good one, too. So good that he catches the attention of the beautiful Marie Da Vinci, who offers him the chance of a lifetime: to locate the legendary Ciudad Blanca. The lost White City. A city purportedly filled with riches beyond belief. Against his better judgment, Nick agrees to help...and soon finds himself on a trail into the unknown. And close behind is someone who will stop at nothing to beat them to the prize. Nick Caine, of course, has a few surprises up his sleeve. After all, he's no ordinarily looter.

Two of my favorite authors team up to write a great story! I LOVED this book! I thought the characters and the storyline were great fun. I loved Nick Caine and his sidekick, Ishi. There was action and adventure and never a dull moment. The story moved alone and I thoroughly enjoyed it. GREAT JOB Aiden and JR! Looking forward to the next installment

I am a huge fan of both Aiden James and J.R. Rain, so to say that I was excited to read this book is being modest! Nick Caine is a Looter. He searches for and gets treasures and artifacts that are hard to find. He is also a Looter with a conscience and does not always charge for the things that he finds. One day he receives a message to meet with a Marie Da Vinci. So he bites and goes to meet her to see what she wants. Nick has sworn off women so imagine his shock at his attraction to Marie. Marie's father has been murdered and she wishes to continue with his work and get the treasure that he had found years ago in the legendary Ciudad Blanca. Unfortunately her Uncle is very untrustworthy and he is also after the treasure. Marie needs Nicks help. Nick reluctantly agrees. Something he soon starts to regret. Marie is headstrong and quick to snap. First attitude of the trip, when she found out that Nick's partner Ishi was coming along. Something she quickly got over. The way to the treasure is a treacherous one and Marie shows that she has a very reckless side in this quest. They come across at least three unimaginably horrible beasts that Nick has to battle. The finally find the treasure which unfortunately results in a showdown with Marie's Uncle who Nick has an unfortunate past with. It will definitely take some quick thinking on Nicks part for them to get out of the situation alive... I LOVED this book! Two of my favorite authors in one book. You can't beat that.. I definitely recommend this book!

A good story...not great, but a good, solid adventure tale. Page-turning action, interesting characters and a setting in the remote mountain jungles of Honduras. The main drawback is that it could have been a lot more fleshed-out. It is billed as a novella, so a quick read was the author's intention. However, that comes at a sacrifice to complexity and depth of detail. Readers might also consider early James Rollins, such as Amazonia, or Douglas Preston's The Codex.

Way too short. Way too rushed. Rather disappointed. Should have cost closer to $.99. Don't think i'll waste another $3.00 on the rest of the series. Could have been a great story.
