This was actually my first Dane and Bones book, and I am absolutely hooked. I loved the relationships in the book and the characters we fun. The action was intense and the story pulled me in from the start. Needless to say, I am going to be checking out all of the books in the series.
The audiobook was narrated by the amazing Jeffrey Kafer, which added greatly to my enjoyment of the story. I can't wait to see what else the series brings!
Bought this on the cheap from Audible, and did I ever get a deal!
The story: Dane, Bones, and the rest of their crew are treasure hunters. They decide to try their hand in digging or whatever it takes to get to the pirate treasure on the island off the Eastern coast of Canada which has thwarted many and cost both money and lives in others attempts. Will try to avoid spoilers, but here we have a fine interweaving of actual places and real history with several known and intriguing legends. Throw in plot twists, two different sets of evil bad guys, kidnappings, action and adventure, and lots of wiseassery and badassery, and you have this really great read!
Kafer does a great job with this one. Character interpretations and differentiations are clear and very well done, and the narrative parts are clearly presented. He is engaged with his narration and it clearly shows!
Bones 'The funny guy' never seems to be a sidekick their for entertainment, although he is the funniest character he is a critical part of the story.
He really brings the characters to life. His accents are spot-on.
This may be the best book in the series so far, it is full of non-stop action, humorous but not too much. In this book we have a treasure hunt, a kidnapping and family - lots of fun.
