It is a good thing I read the 8th book in this series first, because I had a hard time getting into this one. I know the series is good, but I was bored with this one. ( )

A little too far fetched - the only thing I liked about the book is that it forced me to get the atlas out. ( )

The story is about a lost Confederate ship--the captain may have found the origins of the Aztec people. The main characters are the husband and wife team of Sam and Remi Fargo. Their quest takes them all over the world; some parts of it carry no interest for me and I could not identify with it. Action abounds--just as it seems our heroes are doomed, they get out of that scrape and into another. Tedious sometimes, as strange as that may seem. The story might have been told at half the length of this listen. Book #2 in the series, let's go to book #3. ( )

Disappointing series. Sam and Remi are far too adept at hauling themselves out of situations that would defy 99.99% of humanity, and on a fairly regular basis. The premise and intrigue are both interesting, but do stretch the incredulity just a bit too much! Not looking for any more in this particular series.

This is an enjoyable story about the Aztec civilization and its origins. Full of symbolism, the puzzle becomes tedious at times, but Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood relieve the tedium by inserting another action scene just in time to save the Fargos from sudden elimination. Volcano eruptions, island invasions and government corruptions combine to give readers an exciting and suspenseful story. LOST EMPIRE will make fans of the series hungry for the next installment. ( )

Book description
While scuba diving in Tanzania, Sam and Remi Fargo come upon a relic belonging to a long-lost Confederate ship. An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery-but unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase. Mexico's ruling party, the ultranationalist Mexica Tenochca, is intent on finding that artifact as well, because it contains a secret that could destroy the party utterly.

Through Tanzania and Zanzibar, into the rainforests of Madagascar, and across the Indian Ocean to Indonesia and the legendary site of the 1883 Krakatoa explosion, the Fargos and their ruthless opponents pursue the hunt-but only one can win. And the penalty for failure is death.
