I have always loved reading. Audiobooks are a way to indulge my love for books while doing other things. Mysteries... quite irresistable!

    Under the direction of famed explorer Porter Stone, an archaeological team is secretly attempting to locate the tomb of an ancient pharaoh who was unlike any other in history. Stone believes he has found the burial chamber of King Narmer, the near mythical god-king who united upper and lower Egypt in 3200 B.C., and the archaeologist has reason to believe that the greatest prize of all - Narmer's crown - might be buried with him. No crown of an Egyptian king has ever been discovered, and Narmer's is the elusive crown of the two Egypts.

    What disappointed you about The Third Gate?

    The atmosphere of the location never felt fully developed. It is set in a part of Egypt that I had never heard of before. I wanted to feel like I was there. I mostly felt confused with all the colored wings and pontoons. The characters were one-dimensional and not as appealing as those in the novels written with Mr. Preston. While the premise takes on more meaning later on in the story, it still feels like an outline.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Road to Omaha by Robert Ludlum


    Would you be willing to try another one of Johnathan McClain’s performances?

    Perhaps. I really like Scott Brick and George Guidall


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    If you have read The Relic, you will be disappointed with this effort.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think this will be a great series. Enigmatist? Is that right? I applaud him for not jumping on the "vampire wagon" to sell a story, but no, it seems better to stick to the scientific aspects of his storytelling rather than the supernatural as a given.
