Publisher's Summary

On the trail of the lost Dead Sea Scrolls, archaeologist Daniel Knox stumbles upon a theft in progress at an ancient temple near Alexandria. Then a senior Egyptian archaeologist is violently killed, and the finger of suspicion points at Knox himself. To add to his mounting worries, his partner Gaille Bonnard is kidnapped while showing a television crew around the ruins of Amarna. She manages to smuggle out a message, pleading with Knox to rescue her, but he's locked in a police cell on suspicion of murder hundreds of miles away. His only hope of clearing his name and saving Gaille is to crack one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the ancient world...before it's too late.

    "action packed foray into speculative archeology"

    This book is full of action, enough speculative archeology and history to make one want to read more about some of the topics covered. This story is better than the first book with the same characters. the narrator is excellent, and somehow manages to find different voices and accents for all of the characters. enjoyable.

    "Fast paced excitement - well written, well read"

    Will Adams followed up with this sequel in great fashion. The story is fast, enjoys a lot of historic narative in the same vein as the first story, captures the conflict of cultures existing between east and west and provides a great ensamble (sp?) of characters and the narration is as good as it gets - probably earns the story an extra star. There are a few dings, the story is a good bash at Christian history, one of the key bad guys just drops off the radar and then, from a story point of view evaporates, but these things can be taken in and do not crush the story as a whole. If you like a tight thriller, fast paced action and solid dialog all taking place in an exotic local then I would highly recommend Exodous Quest.

    Story
    "Egyptian Adventure!"

    As he travels through his life, lived in Egypt, Knox attracts adventure and conflict like a moth to a flame. One page Knox is a well known archaeologist the next page he seems unknown. The contrast continues through the story creating an ever changing personality. The story switches from each sub-plot with the blink of an eye but the writing is easy to follow. Descriptions of the tombs and finds are to good to be true! Still a good story for those of us who probably never will travel to Egypt.

    "Daniel Knox strikes again"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Exodus Quest to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the complete print edition.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Will Adams? Why or why not?

    Yes, I have already enjoyed "The Alexander Cipher", which I liked a bit better.


    Have you listened to any of David Colacci’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I have, but I did enjoy his performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The hostage scene seemed to be terrifying realistic.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not care for the attempt to portray the pharaoh Akhenaten and Moses as one in the same.

    "Disappointed"

    The title, summary and setting promised an exciting adventure mixed with a good dose of history and fiction. From my view, the story was 25% history with no characters that you could care about and a plot that was all about robbing ancient tombs. I purchased this book because of its high ratings and story line but I was misled.
