Publisher's Summary

Nazis, zombies, wizards, and beasts roam the path before Dr. Andrew Doran.
Dr. Andrew Doran has been out of touch with the major civilizations for quite a while. When an emissary from his alma mater demands his assistance, Andrew is in such a state that he has no choice but to help.
The Nazis have taken the Necronomicon from Miskatonic University's library. With it they could call upon every form of darkness and use the powers of the void to destroy all who stand in the way of obtaining unlimited power.
For years Doran has been at odds with Miskatonic University. Putting his negative feelings aside, Andrew takes charge and heads straight into the Nazi-controlled territories of Europe. Along his journey from America and into the heart of Berlin, the dark Traum Kult - or Dream Cult - has sent beasts from the void between worlds to slow his progress. This is adventure and monsters unlike anything the anthropologist has ever experienced, and only with the assistance of the trigger-happy Leo and the beautiful Olivia, both members of the French Resistance, does Dr. Doran have any chance of success.
A sane man would flinch. Dr. Andrew Doran charges in.

A intriguing read.

Would you listen to The Statement of Andrew Doran again? Why?

I probably would because there was so much that happened that I'm sure I missed something.


What did you like best about this story?

The world building, though at times confusing, was awesome. I loved finding out about the Necronomicon and the monsters. It also felt very Indiana Jones to me, which I loved!


Any additional comments?

In all this was a wonderfully written and imaginative read. While listening to it it played out as an Indiana Jones type movie in my head. I mean it had all the elements of Indiana Jones, mystery, Nazis, artifact retrieval, mayhem every where the doctor goes, but it had much more than that, it has zombie type things, magic, beasts and plenty of action!

It starts off slow but once the action starts, it's pretty much non stop. There is so much that happens in the story that it's hard to summerise without spoiling something, so all I'll say is that this is a story that needs to be savoured to be fully enjoyed! The author put a lot into it and it shows. The depth of the story and the development of the characters was amazing.

In all, I really enjoyed this. It kept my interest the whole way through and I was left reeling when some of the mysteries were revealed. I hope we see more from these wngaging characters!!

Davenport needs a new audio performer

Good storyline and development. Excellent characterizatons of humans and non humans. Descriptions of personalities and weaponry as well as environments clear. Loved the story and set up for next in series.
Narration aspect done well, but character interpretation by perfomer grating and a disservice to the writer.
