Publisher's Summary

Sam and Remi Fargo return for the thrilling third adventure in the acclaimed new series. In Spartan Gold and Lost Empire, Clive Cussler brought readers into the world of husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo, whose passion and instinct for treasure-hunting has led to extraordinary discoveries - and perilous journeys. Their next adventure, however, might be their most astonishing yet.

The Fargos are used to hunting for treasure, not people. But then a Texas oil baron contacts them with a personal plea: an investigator friend of the Fargos' was on a mission to find the oil baron's missing father - and now the investigator is missing, too. Would Sam and Remi be willing to look for them both? Though something about the situation doesn't quite add up, the Fargos agree to go on the search. What they find will be beyond anything they could have imagined.

On a journey that will take them to Tibet, Nepal, Bulgaria, India, and China, the Fargos will find themselves embroiled with black-market fossils, a centuries-old puzzle chest, the ancient Tibetan kingdom of Mustang, a balloon aircraft from a century before its time... and a skeleton that could turn the history of human evolution on its head.

Packed with the endless imagination and breathtaking suspense that are his hallmarks, The Kingdom once again proves that Clive Cussler is "just about the best storyteller in the business" (New York Post).

Listen to another far-flung Fargo Adventure.

    "Great narrator"

    Really enjoy Scott Brick's narrating. Each character voice is so easy to keep track of.

    "A Confusing Story"
    Would you try another book from Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood and/or Scott Brick?

    no


    What could Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A more cohesive story


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He had an annoying way of narration and it made me feel that he was not enjoying the story. It was as if he was reading it with an attitude. After a time, I began to understand why!


    What character would you cut from The Kingdom?

    I'm not sure. There was a confusing cast of characters jumping in and out of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was so fast paced and confusing that I was left with little idea what was going on, why, where, or who was doing it.

    "Disappointing"
    What did you like best about The Kingdom? What did you like least?

    Have to say up front I am a big fan and have read all of the Fargo Series from Clive Cussler. Unfortunately, I found this novel lacking in flow and detail. Almost seemed thrown together and rushed. Disappointing to say the least. I'd recommend passing on this one.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Grant Blackwood again?

    Absolutely


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Well done as always.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    "Great Adventure"

    This was a good book with plenty of action, non-stop. Great Narrator gets every scene right on the mark. He is one of the best. Well worth the credit.

    "OK, not great"

    When I buy a book with Clive Cussler’s name on it, I want it to read like he at least reviewed the book, and this one didn’t. You could tell it was written almost 100% by Grant Blackwood. Although it was an entertaining read, it wasn’t up to the normal Sam and Remi standards, and I normally really enjoy reading about their exploits.

    Story
    "Right in Cussler's 'Sweet Spot'"

    Ok, I'm a fan of Clive Cussler series. That being said: there is a cheese-y factor to the dialogue between characters consistently. If you don't take the books too seriously, you can enjoy the ride and sometimes learn some interesting factoids...
    This book falls into the typical Cussler recipe: fast-moving and fun with a bit of danger and mystery thrown in.
    He does not write women very well - they are all caricatures, Barbie meets Lara Croft. But they have improved over the years and I do give him credit for trying to make them a little more human with humor.
    But if you enjoy action/adventure without a lot of graphic gore or sex (one of the reasons I consistently reach for his books) you'll probably enjoy this and other Cussler reads.

    Story
    "I loved this... I was introuduced to the Fargo's."
    What did you love best about The Kingdom?

    I liked the character development and the true to life history that the story revolved around..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Kingdom?

    In the Toyota escape in the gorge..


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He read to me in Atlas Shrugged and I thought he was way to dramatic.. I really liked him in this..


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Who flew first?


    Any additional comments?

    Bring on the Fargo's...
