This is the most recent installment of the Dane Maddock Adventures and it is, in my opinion, the best of the series thus farOS:- Watching the growth and development of the protagonists is great- More plot twists and surprises than I could count- Incredible continuity which is completely in synch with prior books- Detailed enough to keep me reading without becoming distracting- Angel Bonebrake. Nuff said.- Sets up for an incredible next bookCONS:[This space intentionally left blank]Just an excell [...]
David Wood delivers again with a fast-paced romp through sunken treasure maps, hidden Templar churches and a secret organization that wants to resurrect an ancient kingdom. Dane Maddock and his sidekick Bones wisecrack their way through adventure, aided by Angel and Avery, two strong women who bring a romantic spin to this action-adventure chase. I loved the Cornish citadel with dragons guarding it and the echoes of Arthurian legend. Fantastic!
After the first Dane Maddock book, I was unimpressed, and said I wouldn't read any more. I ended up continuing with the series, and I'm glad I did. This is the best, by far. I'm a big fan of this genre, and love how Wood tied the legend of Captain Kidd's treasure to the Arthurian legend. I really enjoyed this, and found it to be a really fun read.
Once again David Wood delivers a fun and exciting adventure. Full of wit and action Dane and Bones once again find themselves searching for incredible treasures and escaping dangerous situations. Any action adventure junkie will love this.
Even though I listened to this via my Kindle and audible, I count this as a read book. Simply put, this was arguably one of the Top 5 books I’ve ever read. The interaction(s) among Dane, Bones, Avery, etc are superb, with the standard traits of said characters not being a bother. Admittedly, you may roll your eyes at a few points if you haven’t followed Dane and Bones on previous adventures, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from enjoying this well paced journey. I don’t think it’s a spoi [...]
Treasure hunting meets legends.Oh my what can I say loved it couldn't put it down or rather stop listening. I listened to this while first working then while playing. Move over Indiana Jones, there are new adventurers in in town.I've never read/listened to David Wood before but it definitely won't be the last one I read. I'm looking forward to more of his work. The narrator does a superb job he kept me riveted.This audiobook was given to me for free at my request from the publisher or author or [...]
This is a fast paced thriller.Dane and friends are looking for treasure.After finding a note left by his deceased father Dane decides to look for Kids treasure chest.Little does he know, others would kill to get their hands on it too.Jeffrey Kafer does nice narration on all the voices.I was provided this book by the author,narrator or publisher.
Enjoyed King ArthurYou are in for a journey into the Camelot age and King Arthur, intriguing and compelling. David work on your editing, at the aquarium you had Jimmy hit the bad guy-should have been Corey.
My first Dane Maddock book. Found it to be very enjoyable and interesting. Will definitely read the rest of his adventures.
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.****FULL REVIEW*****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 acc [...]
Bought this on the cheap from Audible, and did I ever get a deal!The story: Dane, Bones, and the rest of their crew are treasure hunters. They decide to try their hand in digging or whatever it takes to get to the pirate treasure on the island off the Eastern coast of Canada which has thwarted many and cost both money and lives in others attempts. Will try to avoid spoilers, but here we have a fine interweaving of actual places and real history with several known and intriguing legends. Throw in [...]
Interesting. Took me a while to get into it but mostly due to the several major characters introduced and my inability to keep their names straight. Might have helped had I read the first book that sets the stage for the series.So Dane Maddock and his sidekick Bones are much like Cussler's Dirk and Al characters. Both ex-military, strong, stubborn, saving damsels and always managing to escape danger in the nick of time. These boys are exceptional divers too. As with Cussler stories, this too beg [...]
One of my favorite kinds of stories is one that combines historical events or figures with a search for artifacts or treasure. David Wood's Buccaneer was right on target. A search for Kidd's treasure takes you on an unexpected quest, one that could change everything as we know it.Like Lincoln and Child or Clive Cussler, David Wood's characters and prose keep you awake and reading well into the wee hours.One note though, the Kindle version of this book contained missing words and dangling phrases [...]
Buccaneer begins with Maddock and Bones searching for pirates treasure. As with most of their adventures, things change and change quickly. They come to the aid of a "damsel" in distress. Maddock finds a sister that he didn't know existed and learns he didn't really know his father. Bones in seriously interested in a woman. Maddock find unexpected love with the most unlikely woman that he has known for years.They go from searching for pirates treasure to hunting for the swords and burial site of [...]
I'm giving this latest Dane Maddock book by David Wood 4 stars but I'm thinking it's more like 3.5. The action was pretty good but a family related revelation failed to unexcited me. The treasure hunt was interesting and even though there was a bit of a "been there, done that" feel to it there was a fun twist I hadn't seen before. I rather liked the creatures and the locales were interesting. Overall good storytelling but the occasional editing problem was distracting. Not the strongest entry in [...]
Wow what can I say that I haven't already, these books just get better and better, and the characters more and more interesting. This time Dane and Bones are on the hunt to solve the Oak Island Money Pitt legend but this then turns into a quest for pirate treasure, that of William Kidd, and then into a mystery involving the Templers and Arthurian legend meeting up with enemies old and new and what appear to be a few mythical creatures. fantastic can't wait for the next installment
This was actually my first Dane and Bones book, and I am absolutely hooked. I loved the relationships in the book and the characters we fun. The action was intense and the story pulled me in from the start. Needless to say, I am going to be checking out all of the books in the series.The audiobook was narrated by the amazing Jeffrey Kafer, which added greatly to my enjoyment of the story. I can't wait to see what else the series brings!
Captain Kidd, the Templars, The Holy Lance, The Holy Grail, King Arthur, ancient technology, two retired Navy SEALs, and thier sisters all come together for a fast paced rocking good adventure. I've already given enough spoilers away, suffice to say mix a little Dan Brown with some awesome diving and you have the recipe for a great book in a great series.
I was worried at first because the description offers some significant similarities to Preston and Child's Riptide but Wood manages to take the book in a different direction. Buccaneer was a lot of fun. I have some quibbles, but they are small and not worth mentioning here. Wood is on his way to becoming a real successor to Clive Cussler.
This may be the best book in the series so far, it is full of non-stop action, humorous but not too much. Bones 'The funny guy' never seems to be a sidekick their for entertainment, although he is the funniest character he is a critical part of the story. In this book we have a treasure hunt, a kidnapping and family - lots of fun.
I like these books even though you can find things in it/them that are like what you may have read in other books (C.C) or seen in a movie (national treasure).I still could read more, so keep em coming please.
Love Bones and Danes adventure. There is a lot of adventure and mayhem. Bones is one of my very favorite characters. Dane is no slouch either.Hope you jump on the series and enjoy it as much as I do.
I love it!! I have read all the Dane Maddock Books and they are all fantastic!! I can't wait for the next adventure!! You won't be able to put it down until your finishedd then wish it didn't finish!
Another adventure of Bones and Maddock. I enjoyed this one because one of the setting for the story was at Oak Island. I have been following the treasure hunters on this one. Easy read, already purchased the next in the series.
All the books in this series are really great reads. This adventure involves searching for lost treasure on Oak Island. Treasure that involves Dane Maddock and his partner Bones in one strange and perilous treasure hunt. Very good books in this series.
Every time I read a David Wood book, I find my self staying up too late, unable to stop turning pages. Always well written with very interesting plots. Maddock and Bones are great, I love the action, adventure and mystic of the books. Try one and I bet you will read them all!
I'm still in the process of reading this. While I agree with others that it's probably Wood's best so far, I find his handling of Sherrif Meade jarring. Canadian sherrifs are not like American ones. They are employees of the Nova Scotia court and are not elected. Otherwise, it's a great read.
Great adventureA lot of action keeps your interest as well as keeps you guessing. I don't think the relationship with Bones sister feels right. Dane seems to be more of a Jade type. There were still a lot of typos.
Very good adventure story, first David Wood book read,wil defo read some more
Dane and Bones are the best!
