Publisher's Summary

An innocent discovery on a Montana ranch two years ago, sets off a series of events that may very well change the world . . . if it doesn't end it first.
Professor Delaney McPhearson's life is turned upside down when her best friend, archaeologist Drew Masters, is found dead. Before she can deal with the heartbreaking loss, she is viciously attacked in her home by a man with inhuman fighting abilities. Former Navy SEAL and head of security for a global think tank, Jake Rogan drops everything when he hears his foster brother Tom Jeffries has gone missing. There seem to be no clues, no information about his whereabouts. He has just vanished. But Jake won't rest until he finds him.
Laney and Jake join forces when they learn that the fates of their loved ones are intertwined. And somehow all the danger that dogs their steps, revolves around an eccentric archaeologist's controversial work on Gobekli Tepe, and the search for an ancient source of power. Their personal quest soon becomes a race to protect humanity's very existence. But how can they defeat a foe who has been planning his moves for millennia? To save mankind, Laney and Jake know they must succeed. But to succeed, they must live long enough to fight.

FUN! I'm looking forward to the next-in-series!

While I'm far from any kind of expert (school of "I know what I like"), I thought The Belial Stone was well written. The story was well assembled and enjoyable. My only critical comments to the author are to be careful with character POV descriptions that exceed the character's demonstrated knowledge (an every day person would probably identify "machine gun looking weapon" but probably not think "AK47s") and the use of cliche-descriptions (the ground bucked like a bronco... the car pealed from the parking lot... ? hmm) . Good descriptions elsewhere in the book provide evidence the author can do better. The only other comment I will make is about the narrator, who mispronounced a few words that I would have thought common (SUFFice for suFFICE), but I am also often brought up short by correct alternative and dialectical pronunciations, so maybe it was my ear's as much as the narrator's slip. However, I do think the narrator was off in her Israeli and Scottish accented English.

In summary, the title of this review says it all.

Good story, but dull narration.

Where does The Belial Stone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right in the middle. Have read much better and much worse.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Belial Stone?

The attack on the compound until the end.


What didn’t you like about Leslie Wadsworth’s performance?

Her voice was too uninteresting and flat. She was also poor when performing accents.
