Publisher's Summary

It is July 2003. In the middle of its maiden voyage, the luxury cruise ship Emerald Dolphin suddenly catches fire and sinks. What caused it? Why didn't the alarms go off? What was its connection to the revolutionary new engines powering the ship?

NUMA special projects director Dirk Pitt races to rescue the passengers and investigate the disaster, but he has no idea of the bizarre events that are about to engulf him. Before the next few weeks are over, Pitt will find himself confronted by an extraordinary series of monsters, both human and mechanical, modern and ancient. He will tread upon territory previously known only to legend. And, at the end of it all, though many lives will be lost, and many saved, it is Pitt's own life that will be changed forever....

Filled with dazzling suspense and breathtaking action, Valhalla Rising is Cussler at the height of his storytelling powers.

Take another thrill ride with Dirk Pitt.

    Story
    "if you like uncharted.... it's for you"

    saw a few online forums for books like the Uncharted video game series.
    I was really hesitant.
    this is my first Pitt title, and Cussler at that.
    this one isn't in a jungle, desert, mountains, or pirate island. .. but it's got a VERY Nathan Drake feel to it.
    I have a feeling that the games were based more on Pitt than Indiana Jones.

    "Abridged"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Disappointing after reading the book. the abridged missed key areas


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

    Reading was good short on content.


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

    Disappointment because I was sharing the experience

    This was an incredulous story and a waste of time, energy and money. Don't bother!

    Story
    "Are you sure Clive Cussler wrote this?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I am hoping that the unabridged version of this is better.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Ron Mclarty is not the worst narrator i have heard but just because you have a deep voice doesn't mean you should be a narrator. Its not that his reading skills are lacking its just that his voice does not have the range to accommodate multiple characters. All of the characters sounded like agitated old men. Also the manner in which he pronounced Titanium was amusing to me ( Tie Tan E Um) but this could just be a accent.


    Was Valhalla Rising worth the listening time?

    I love all of Clive's books but it is hard for me to really get into this one. I doubt I will finish.
    Oreagon, Numa files, Issac bell are all good series. but this book doesn't stand up to what I would expect from Clive Cussler. Perhaps a grandkid or nephew or someone wrote this and he slapped his name on it to humor them.
