What the Critics Say

"Yo ho ho? get ready for a ripping good yarn.... This nonstop action adventure has all the elements of a perfect summertime thriller - pirate treasure of unimaginable worth, 300-year-old cryptograms written in invisible ink, a legendary curse, and a driven captain who will stop at nothing to reach his goal. The red-hot authors of Reliquary score another big winner." (Library Journal)

NARRATOR- SCOTT BRICK- BRINGS THE BOOK DOWN

This book had the potential to be such a great listen- but the narration of Scott Brick has once again ruined a book for me. It is hard to understand why Audible can't seem to get someone else to read these wonderful books- there are so many great choices out there. I read complaint after complaint about Mr. Brick's "singsong" voice or tedious, whiny, boring readings- It is just a shame Audible doesn't address this somehow. I guess the only option for the members is to avoid any books he narrates. The story was really good, and I would have given it a 4 or 5 rating if it had a narrator who made it enjoyable to listen to. I would recommend actually READING this one.
