A fast-paced adventure, packed with a fast paced story.
This is the first book I have read of the series, and I wasn't lost. This book can be read as a stand alone. If I was a little confused, the writer filled me in.
I was gratefully provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audio Boom..

Dr. Morgan Sierra and Jake Timber returned in the eighth book, Destroyer of Worlds. The ARKANE Headquarter has been bombed and a piece of Hindu artifact has been stolen. Marietti, their Director has been severely injured. As Morgan and Jake placed the pieces together, they discovered Shiva Nataraja is so dangerously that it can end the world, the sculpture has been broken in three pieces and hidden in three locations in the world. Now Morgan and Jake must retrieve the pieces before an unknown enemy.
Destroyer of the Worlds is a fact-paced action packed adventure that takes the readers to the slums of Mumbai to the temples of Kolkata, the Taj Mahal in Agra to the killing fields of Rwanda. The author has done a very thorough research on the Hindu culture and its important Holiday, Kumbh Mela, the greatest pilgrimage on earth. This is one of the main reason, readers will never be disappointed in the ARKANE series and will keep coming back for more and to discover more about Morgan and Jake.
The narrator, Veronica Giguere has a wonderful voice to listen to. What can I say, she is one of my favorite narrator who can really bring a story to live.
I was given this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated or influence in any way for writing this review.
What made the experience of listening to Destroyer of Worlds the most enjoyable?
I've read or listened to all the books in JF Penn's Arcane series. I especially enjoyed Destroyer of Worlds because the plot hit the heart of the Arcane organisation and I got to know more about other Arcane members. I'd like to read more storylines that weave in the roles and lives of the wider Arcane team.
What other book might you compare Destroyer of Worlds to, and why?
The Arcane series is a good choice for anyone who enjoys the Da Vinci Code.
Have you listened to any of Veronica Giguere’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Veronica Giguere's performance is professional and she can bring light and shade to each of the characters with subtle changes to her voice. I am not over keen on the voice of the main heroine Morgan Sierra, but it does tell you a lot about her - feminine but strong.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Jake and Morgan, a brief moment of nearly telling each other how they feel for one another. I like the small hints of will-they-won't-they that is developing over the series.
Any additional comments?
The author works hard at transporting you to locations in the book that you can visualise, where you can hear the bustle of the streets and smell the spices in the air. I think the descriptions come across even stronger in the audio version than the written version.
