Publisher's Summary

The Event Group is comprised of the nation’s most brilliant men and women in the fields of science, philosophy, and the military. Led by Major Jack Collins, their job is to find the truth behind the world's greatest unsolved myths. And this time, Collins and his crew will dare to uncover a terrifying secret - about the long-vanished tribe of the Incas - that's buried deep within the Amazon Basin.
The last expedition into the depths and darkness of the Amazon claimed the lives of a female professor and her team. Now the Event Group, using cutting-edge technology exclusively designed by the U.S. military, will travel to the ends of the earth - from Brazil to the Little Bighorn to the Arlington National Cemetery - to bring new meaning to an ancient disaster... or bury the legend forever... or die trying.

The Event Group continue to roll

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would only if I was SURE that they could enjoy the profound leaps of faith that this story, and the Event Group series in general, requires.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Most: the history of the search for El Dorado over the centuries.
Least: what does the ole' whipping boy, the Roman Catholic Church, have to do with it??


What three words best describe Richard Poe’s voice?

Detailed
Compelling ( at times )
Consistent


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I rarely go to movies. They play in my head.


Any additional comments?

A good addition to the genre. Slightly higher than mildly amusing.

Pet peeves of the poor and unpublished.

Loved the story and most of the characters, especially Jenks. I read the series a few years ago, but listening to it being read aloud by a great narrator is a whole other experience. This review isn't as in depth as many excellent reviews given at Goodreads.com. The thing that drove me nuts about about Legend is the excessive use of the adjective "large." Large man, large chair, large object - large, large, large. It's almost as if "large" is being used as a placeholder for an adjective yet to be determined, and then never readdressed. To a lesser extent, "small" is being used the same way, appearing multiple times in a single sentence. In many instances, there is no need to use an adjective at all - drove me crazy! But what do I know; Mr Goleman is a published author, which is more than I can say.
