The dazzling new novel in the #1 New York Times best-selling series from the grand master of adventure.
It is called zero point energy, and it really exists - a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever found a way to tap into it, however - until one scientist discovers a way.
Or at least he thinks he has. The problem is, his machines also cause great earthquakes, even fissures in tectonic plates. One machine is buried deep underground; the other is submerged in a vast ocean trench. If Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala and the rest of the NUMA team aren't able to find and destroy them, and soon, the world will be on the threshold of a new era of earth tremors and unchecked volcanism.
Now, that can't be good.

Yes great Kurt austn adventure
Yes until the end
All, I have not listened to him narrate before and was blown away. He made the story come to life, each character distinct.
I love a good book
I've read many Clive Cussler books and this one didn't disappoint. A thrilling ride right to the end. Scott Brick is exceptional, again. His voices make the characters come alive.
Kurt Austin is a great character and so was Joe.
Scott Brick is phenomenal. He even managed to impersonate a character with a burned out voice box. Incredible. Even the female voices are believable.
Keep it Zero Hour.
A great read. Thanks.
I have never been disappointed when reading Cussler, from the first book, Mediteranian Caper, all the way thru his vast collection, he holds your interest. I have been found by my wife, sitting in the driveway after arriving home from work, still listening, not wanting to turn it off till the chapter ends. Way to go Clive!!!
Can't choose just one.... They all roll together into one fantastic tale!
Dick Hill has an amazing voice, but the first book I listened to that Scott Brick narrated, I realized that he was made to read Cussler.... Awesome!
The zero energy premise is interesting, but the story was really predictable. Still a satisfying listen.
Scott Brick does great with all the characters.
Bringing Tesla into the story. So few people know what a genius he was and how he got screwed over by Edison.
Clive Cussler is my favorite autor ever since I read Raise the Titanic. He started to get repetitive and predictable. His style came back with the Bell Series. They are wonderful and now he has brought Kurt Austin back into the fold.
Worst Australian accent EVER!! I love Scott Bricks narration and have listened to many of his...this was so disappointing. He did a really bad Aus accent and it was almost a deal breaker for me. Made me dread when the Aus characters were talking and in turn made the book much less enjoyable
Definitely. Cussler still delivers a good story. Even though you know the good guys come out ahead, you still want to find out how and it keeps you interested.
I read on a review somewhere else in which the reviewer mentioned "Did you find yourself sitting in the car or walking another lap trying to finish a chapter?" To me that is is a great measure of how good a book is. And for me, the answer was a resounding yes. Several times!
Scott did an awesome job. Love the Russian accents :)
Yes, it does go way over the edge of believability as far as science. Some things are just not physically possible...but, you kind of come to expect that with some Cussler novels. If you are the type that wants complete accuracy, it might annoy you. If you just want a great FICTION story, the impossibilities are easy enough to overlook. Don't let it keep you away.
Cussler, Connelly, Clancy I like all with a C ...
Do not know how to express it but even though I finished the listening, this is one of the weakest of "Cussler" books.
It flows but lacks something. it begins to resemble Mr. Brown, another book off the mill, based on same recipe as before ...
If the story was just a little bit believable. I'm all for adventure, action and all that but this was just too much. I've great things about Cussler, that being said, I was a pretty disappointed as the story rolled on.
Not Clive Cussler
Scott Brick did a good job for what he had to work with.
Chapter one, thats where the insanity starts.
I do plan on giving Cussler another chance. So if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thanks!!
I found this book unsatisfying . The stories was superficial simplistic & predictable . Also as an Australian I found the readers attempts at an Australian ascent truly horrible . It got to the point that I just could not keep listening . Why don't these readers listen to some real Australian ascents .Does Russell Crow or Nichole Kidman sound like this?? It was a cross between Michel Cain & Dick Van Dike in Mary Poppins ??? This reading was horrible & if I may say as an Australian insulting .
It was predictable & the attempt at an Australian ascent was horrible .
He was OK when reading in his own voice but listen to some real Australians before attempting the ascent again .
Please if there are Australian characters in future readings work at getting the ascent right . Imagine if you were listening to an Englishman doing a reading & every American character sounded like Gommer Pile ! That is how this reading came across to me.
