Publisher's Summary

Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase possess extraordinary pieces of an ancient puzzle that leads them from Singapore to the jungles of South America. Inside a storm of political and drug warfare, Nina is getting close to one of history’s greatest secrets: the mythical golden city of El Dorado. As one discovery unveils another, Nina realizes that a legendary Incan leader made a deal with his Spanish captors - and hid forever the real El Dorado. Now, Nina and Eddie face a maze of death traps and betrayals, including one that reaches into Eddie’s past in Afghanistan, even into his own family in England. Behind a waterfall in Peru is an unfound wonder of the world. And to get there, Nina and Eddie may have to sacrifice everything: their friends, their love for one another, even their lives.

Different narrator!

I've been listening to this series for some time now and I have become very accustomed to the wonderful work and voices of Gildart Jackson. I loved being able to pick out all the individual voices and really hear the emotions of the characters (especially the cheerful humor of Eddie Chase).

After several books into the series, the narrator has been switched to Robin Sachs and it's driving me crazy! Not only are several of the voices fairly similar to others, but i can't concentrate on the story when I hear a well known character speak with someone else's voice. It's like having a friend you've known forever and one day he talks with a different voice entirely! He has the same words and actions, but different inflection, tone, accent and even formant! It really throws you in a loop!

Where does Empire of Gold rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really like this series of books and it ranks up at the tip with the rest of them, but I rarely run across a book I don't like

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I've only just started listening to the book, but so far the plit seems pretty good. I like how there have been returning supporting characters such as Macy.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator is why I'm writing this review. He's very slow and nasally to listen to. I've had to up the speed on the audio to 1.5 times just so I don't start wandering off. You truly should have waited until Gildart Jacvkson was available to read this book. It would have wrapped up this series nicely. Not to mention I'm also now contemplating not buying the last book, Return to Atlantis, because I find this narrator so annoying to listen to.

I find it hard as well because now I have to learn which voice is which all over again.

This narrator is good with voices though!
