Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, knowing the future is not enough.... For more than a millennium, the Oracle of Delphi guided kings and conquerors with stunningly accurate visions of the future. But, with the rise of a new God, the Oracle faded from memory. Now, the power of the Oracle is about change the world once more.
While excavating a previously uncharted passage beneath the ancient city of Teotihuacan, archaeologist Jade Ihara makes a startling discovery: enormous stone spheres, arranged to resemble a model of the solar system, slowly orbiting a golden sun. Even more fantastic, when Jade attempts to move one of the spheres, she catches a glimpse of the future...a premonition that will save her life and launch her into a desperate race to unlock the mysterious secret of the oracular orbs. Jade is accompanied by her old friend, former Navy SEAL Pete "Professor" Chapman, and pursued by a relentless secret society intent on burying the secret of the Oracle forever.
Return to the world of the Dane Maddock Adventures in the first book of a thrilling new series, as Jade crosses the globe in pursuit of the secret of the Oracle.

Indiana Jones Meets Tomb Raider

This is another book in the Dane Maddock series of books (though this book in particular doesn't actually have Maddock). It's a fast-paced archeological adventure that lovers of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider will love.

The description does a pretty good job for this book. The archeological find of the century when a discovery is made underneath the ancient Aztec city in Mexico. A scale model of the solar system lies still functioning by means that can't be readily explained. It is eventually deduced that this device and others like it may be related to other similar devices all over the world that have been used to predict the future.
Unfortunately, a secret and powerful organization infiltrated the archeological team and is aware of the discovery... A discovery they would rather destroy than be made common knowledge...

Jeffery Kafer is one of my favorite narrators. His performance is excellent, as usual.

I was voluntarily provided a free copy of this audiobook by the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

High Octane Adventure!

I loved how this story combined the mythology and history of Oracle of Delphi, with the supernatural element of "black matter" making this an archaeological thriller with a supernatural twist.

This story was fast paced with non stop action that kept me engaged from first to the last chapter. I really liked the characters Jade, and Pete who is also know as the "Professor." I thought they worked well together, and would not hesitate to save each other.

With Jeffrey's performance, I found myself laughing at the sarcasm, and getting tense during the "dire" scenes. I've listened to other books narrated by Jeffrey and he excels at delivering sarcasm and his deep voice is great for really intense scenes.

Awesome story and performance! I look forward to more stories in this series.
