Publisher's Summary

NEW YORK CITY, USA. Archaeologist Nina Wilde's life has fallen apart - her husband, ex-SAS soldier Eddie Chase, is on the run, falsely accused of murder. Her only diversion has been investigating the origin of three strange statues stolen from her just before his disappearance. When Nina discovers they may be dangerous relics from the lost civilisation of Atlantis, it's clear that she has to get back in the game, and fast.
Meanwhile, Eddie tries to stay ahead of the authorities as he hunts the man responsible for his fugitive status across the globe. A mysterious benefactor offers the information he needs - but the price will put him in direct conflict with his wife.
TOKYO, Japan. When Nina learns that a Japanese industrialist has obtained the statues on the black market, she immediately heads to Tokyo to meet him, unaware that Eddie is also on his way. Their arrival unleashes a devastating chain of events that sets Nina and Eddie on their most dangerous quest ever - with the future of humanity itself at stake....

Fast action with a touch of humour

What made the experience of listening to Temple of the Gods the most enjoyable?

The strong man and wife team of Eddie and Nina but from differing worlds of the SAS and archeology combine well to make this story revolving around ancient cities from mythology and the destruction of the civilisations involved make this a very good read/listen. Similar story style to Matthew Reilly ... Just as fast but with added touches of fun relationships make this story a great read. Based around mythical history it is believable and Andy makes the strory plausable. This is my first story from Andy and while I wish I had read the other books first (in order) this story does stand up well as a standalone book and very much worth the read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Temple of the Gods?

For me this audiobook was really brought to life by the reader. He handled the accents very well and this is especailly the case with Eddie being a Yorkshire man. While I live in Australia I was born in Yorkshire and loved listening to this reading. The story starts with Eddie and Nina apart but brings them back together in a wonderful way and then whips the action up.

Which scene was your favorite?

The final battle. ... not overdone and it was kept believable but full of action and the occasional surprise.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end. it was a bit .... well I shall not spoil the end but it ios worth the jouney there

Any additional comments?

worth the read

Cracking adventure

I enjoyed this fast paced story very much,but this wasn't the first book in the series and there where many references to earlier stories, the narrator was top notch loved his accents they where fab and added a lot to the book, my only gripe is with Audible why oh why do they just do the odd book out of a series? This book was 8th in the series and it's the only one available, why not start from book 1?
