I like the series. It seems very promising. I'm not too sure about my feelings for the MC's. This series reminds me somewhat of the hunters series by Chris Kuzneski. ( )

Title: The Tomb of Hercules Series: Wilde and Chase Author: Andy Mcdermott Rating: of 5 Battle Axes Genre: Action/Adventure Pages: 541 Format: Kindle Synopsis: Nina Wilde, now in charge of a large U.N. based agency, is stuck behind a desk instead of doing actual archaeological work. Eddie Chase, now Nina's underling, is also stuck behind a desk. Not a good thing for anybody. So when an old Ex calls, Eddie goes running. And Nina must chase him down or lose him. So begins a globetrotting adventure to find the Tomb of Hercules, a tomb legendary for its vast treasure trove. My Thoughts: After the rather over the top, lets kill 75% of the world kind of plot from the previous book, this simple smash, shoot and grab adventure was nice. Let's see. Wilde and Chase drive a monster dumptruck from a diamond mine and take out some tanks and stuff. They go zipping down some rivers in one of those everglade airfan boats and have battles with some speedboats. They get captured by 2 different billionaires. Eddie's Ex is a bitch. They invade an underwater living area and Nina ends up chasing after Eddie in an experimental submarine that could blow up for no reason whatsoever. They find the tomb and watch as man after man fall prey to to the booby traps. And when you thought it was all over...they have to stop a nuclear bomb from going off in Manhattan while chained to a big boat. Unrelenting action from beginning to end. " ( )

Good read, loved the action hero - Chase, ex SAS, Yorkshire man - you don't see that often in adventure thrillers! ( )

AN ANCIENT WARRIOR.AN INCREDIBLE TREASURE.A LETHAL ENEMY. It's the opportunity of a lifetime-the chance to prove that a tomb containing the remains of the legendary hero Hercules actually exists. If American archaeologist Nina Wilde can locate it, it will be the most important historical find ever unearthed. But as Nina and her ex-SAS bodyguard, Eddie Chase, begin their search, it's clear that others want to find the tomb-and the unimaginable riches within-and will do anything to get there first. Who will find the tomb of Hercules first, and what fantastic treasure does it hold? From New York to Shanghai, from Switzerland to the diamond mines of Botswana, Nina and Eddie must stay one step ahead of their enemies in a race to solve a mystery as ancient as civilization itself. But when a beautiful woman from Eddie's past joins the hunt, all the rules change-and in this life-and-death game, their next move may be the most dangerous one of all. ( )

if you're the sort of person that enjoys SyFy original movies, then you'll like this one but if you're not then give it a pass.

the one thing i liked were the occasional pop culture innuendos , the line "he got shot through the heart and she's to blame" freaking brilliant :) ( )
