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.

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.

An enjoyable archaeological thriller

I've not read anything by Wood before, but I enjoy an archaeology thriller. The writing started off very cool and interesting; the characters were introduced well. The complex plot line was introduced organically and didn't feel like a data dump on the reader. However, the story started to lose me a bit with the dark matter stuff. Not because it was complicated, but because it started to sound unrealistic.

I thought Jeffrey Kafer did a good job narrating. His pacing was good and he put just enough inflection into it to make the story interesting.
