Publisher's Summary

Did ancient Gods like Odin and Zeus and Thor once really exist?
The time has come for a grand adventure filled with high excitement and explosive action.
Matt Drake, a retired SAS officer, must unravel a mystery older than time in his search for the Nine Pieces of Odin. Though scattered aeons ago, it is believed that once the Pieces are reunited they will show the way to the Tomb of the Gods - the greatest archaeological find of all time.
From a rocket attack on the Louvre to a battle in a Swedish cavern, from a daring helicopter raid on New York's National History Museum to an assault on a gangsters mansion in Hawaii, Matt Drake must find the world's oldest treasure in one of the wildest places on earth, searching for the very bones of the gods with the spoils of victory being the entire world.

The Bones of Odin

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

not really


Any additional comments?

I was expecting a more mythological bent to this story.To me it was WAY too much action/adventure than a storyline that flowed.I found myself just waiting for the drama to simmer so we could get back to the story.
Nigel Patterson was a good narrator for this book.His voices for the characters were perfect.
I was gifted this audible copy for a fair review

A wild, exuberant, rip roaring read :)

A wild, exuberant, rip roaring read, thank you @dleadbeater2011 for this wonderful tale, how ‘hard’ is Matt Drake, busting skulls, beating bones and out witting moronic megalomaniacs, as you can guess I loved it for what it was. It didn’t take itself too seriously, it wasn’t littered with literary dexterity and I read it for what it was, a lot of fun.

From the fashionably old York to the damaged New York with narley a blink of the eye and on to and into the mountain of doom, only to be whisked away by the beating blades of a bestial Blackhawk, to the lair of a dodgy dude with an even more dodgy accent. "The Bones of Odin" is an unequivocally gem of far fetched fiction and is delivered superbly by @NigelPatterson.


I totally agree with Scott Whitmore assessment that the ‘bad guys are truly deliciously drawn in their evilness’ muwhahahah. But our happy band of brothers (and a couple of sisters) are more than equal to the task of taking them down.

Nigel delivers the manuscript with adroit aplomb and I thoroughly enjoyed following him and our heroes on the journey of their lifetime. His style perfectly complimented the story and I’m looking forward to reading or rather listening to more of his work.

Thanks very much David, looking forward to the next one.
