    Nora Kelly, a young archaeologist in Santa Fe, receives a letter written 16 years ago, yet mysteriously mailed only recently. In it her father, long believed dead, hints at a fantastic discovery that will make him famous and rich - the lost city of an ancient civilization that suddenly vanished a thousand years ago. Now Nora is leading an expedition into a harsh, remote corner of Utah's canyon country, but what she unearths will be the newest of horrors.

    This is one of the best books Ive ever read. It has very well developed characters and the storyline never faulters. Every chapter was thrilling and without a doubt some were frightening. Once again these authors managed to piece togther a masterpiece with an amazing ending that strings together the plot so well that I couldnt believe it. Every loose end it tied up so well. If you want to really enjoy the horror side of this book listen to it while going to sleep! You will definately have some fantastic nightmares, I did!!

    This is hands down the best book I've read hhere on audible. (Of about 50)

    On its own in text this book would be great, but with scott brick narrating its superb! In my opinion the narrating will make or break an audiobook. This time brick comes through with an excellent narration

    The story is enthralling, the research behind it is spot on, and the ending is well worth the read. Sometomes I wish I could forget this book just to enjoy reading it again

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Story

    The story is excellent and keeps you interested. Mind you this isn't an action packed book and despite that it manages to be pretty terrifying. The pace isn't too quick nor too slow.

    There are absolutely tons of historical tidbits in this book and the author manages to bring them all together culminating in a very interesting and fascinating book. Its completely believable and at the same time amazingly elaborate. I love when authors don't hand feed you the storyline,and the author in this book treats the reader as intelligent.

    Lastly the narrators are simply perfect for the tone of this book. The female has sort of a mild sadness to her reading which makes the story come alive. There isn't any monotone reading. As for the male reader he is excellent at accents and really brings his characters to life

    I loved this book and normally don't write reviews but I feel I've found one of the best books on audible and had to review

    The visionary creator of the Academy Award-winning Pan's Labyrinth and a Hammett Award-winning author bring their imaginations to this bold, epic novel about a horrifying battle between man and vampire that threatens all humanity. It is the first installment in a thrilling trilogy and an extraordinary international publishing event.

    High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin's nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years. Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown.

    Xavier says: "Great blend of history and science"
    "Didnt have the same spice as child / preston books"
    Overall

    First off let me say I love child preston books. All amazing in their own right. As this book has similar qualities to the child preston books I tried it. Although I did enjoy it it didnt leave me thinking about it days later as the child preston books do.

    Also have to say I didnt enjoy the narrarator much. Another reason I love the child preston books (scott brick is a god)

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "GREAT book"
    Overall

    I listen to alot of books here on audible. Each time I start looking for a new book to listen to I try to find a book that I think will make me feel like I did while listening to this one. No other book has yet, Ive listened to more than 20 other books but I keep thinking about this one. Its just so great. It really has everything. I REALLY hope that the sequel turns out to be as awe inspiring as this one
