Publisher's Summary

The Secret Must Be Kept....
For 3,000 years, the Herculean Society has preserved the legacy of the ancient hero, Hercules, protecting history's fragile relics from humanity, and humanity from the dangerous truths behind the legends. Now, the Society's new leader, archaeologist George Pierce, faces his first test: the Cerberus Group, a shadowy organization with two goals: the collection and distribution of black market relics, tech and secrets, and the purge of those deemed unfit for survival.
Pierce and his niece, Fiona - the last guardian of the "mother tongue", the forgotten language of creation - discover a secret entrance to the legendary Labyrinth, and at its heart, a hidden trove of relics that point the way to Hercules' greatest discovery: a mutagen that can rewrite the very code of life. When a surprise attack leaves Pierce and Fiona trapped in the deadly maze, fighting for their lives, the race to stop the Cerberus Group begins.
To defeat this new enemy, Pierce must assemble a team of experts including Felice Carter, a geneticist with a dangerous secret, Augustina Gallo, a mythology professor, Cintia Dourado, a high tech hacker, and Lazarus, a dead soldier returned to life.
Guided by their knowledge of science, history, and mythology, Pierce's team sets out on an epic journey, following in the footsteps of Hercules, to stop Cerberus from controlling the power that rises from the Well of Monsters.
...or the world will be cleansed.
Jeremy Robinson and Sean Ellis, the international best-selling team behind the Jack Sigler thrillers, including Savage and Cannibal, return with a new series that rewrites the way we see history. Rivaling the best of Matthew Reilly and James Rollins, Herculean combines a blistering pace with fringe science and myths reborn.

Old world previews the present

Any additional comments?

I was provided this book in expectation of a review.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was full of excitement from start to finish. There were times when the good guys seemed a bit too gullible but they always seemed to work their way out of the trap they had been caught in.

The book was not predictable in any way and brought up points of historical myth and used them to weave a tapestry that explained many things about the modern world. The author did a fantastic job of this.

The narrator was outstanding. He did a great job with each characters voice ranging from female to elderly male. He added a lot when he expressed the excitement of the particular scenes also.

Sounds like 2 writers competing!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Generally speaking, thriller/scifi audiobooks are a good expenditure of time. This one, well, not as much as others. It is messy, in need of editing ( it truly is overly long and convoluted ) and sounds like an effort to cram as much research as they have done into one offering.

What could Jeremy Robinson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Edit, edit and edit. This offering is not up to JR's usual standards in this one area. It sounds unpolished to me.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Characters were consistent and logical, so I liked that. I liked some of the ambiguity of them as well.

Too much yelling and unusual choices, which added to the overall confusion of this book.

Do you think Herculean needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Most of JR's offerings are designed with a follow up in mind, and this one is no different in that arena.

Any additional comments?

I wanted to like this offering more than I did, frankly. It is messy, yet oddly interesting and entertaining in places. Unfortunately, not enough so to get my overall endorsement. I suppose if you are into JR, this works, but not recommended in my books.

Awesome, as always!

I don't need to say this but I will anyway once again Jeremy Robinson and Sean Ellis have done it again. This book is awesome. A MUST read for readers of the chess team. Also if you want a book that you can't stop listening to. Then this is a book for you.
The narrator Jeffery Kafer has as always done an excellent job at bringing the characters to life. I loved the story and I know I will be listening to it again.
