Interesting concept

I was given this book free at my request for an unbiased review.

Overall the story was good, the only issue I had was the action scenes. They were a bit like the old A-Team series. Lots of bullets flying and explosions but no one ever dies.

Again the narrator was ok. His character voices seemed a little forced and his reading a little robotic at times. Other than that he was very well spoken and you could distinguish the characters easily.

Thanks for the opportunity to review this book.

A good story buoyed by an exceptional narrator

Let me get this out of the way up front: I enjoyed this story. It's worth your 9+ hours of time, even if you have not listened to or read the first book in the series. It is a pleasant, clean, and exciting story with a premise that never flags. That being said, the author sets his story amid some of the most popular and well known historical stories and settings. So he really needs to take more care to avoid "postcard syndrome." I'm not going to go into a lot of specifics and ruin the story for everyone, but if you are diving in the Titanic and chasing the things the heroes of this story do, you should have a more historical and factual grounding. The set pieces feel a bit shall we say "generic." It's like reading about the Eiffel Tower and not being sure which city the Eiffel Tower is in. Just a postcard picture, so to speak.

Now, gripes aside, Dan Delgado is a revelation as a narrator. He has a particular skill with narrating believable dialogue. Whether it is portraying excitement, terror, boredom, or just the quick cut-and-parry of men in a hurry speaking to each other, he pulls it off marvelously. It's not even that every character sounds different from one another - it's that all of them sound the way they would in my head if I were to read the book. They sound "right." Keep him for future books.

Excellent Adventure

Ark Found is an excellent, action-packed sequel to Atlantis Gold. The story follows Carter Hunt and Jayden Takada as they embark on a mission for their newly formed company Omega Team. This mission starts out at the Titanic, and their exploration of the ship in a sub was intense and had me holding my breath in parts. As their mission takes them from the Titanic to other parts of the world, they encounter their nemesis, Daedalus from Treasure, Inc., who keeps showing up at the worst times.

I was excited when Rick Chesler announced this sequel to Atlantis Gold, and was definitely not disappointed. I am hopeful that there will be many more books in this series in the future, and I also hope that Dan Delgado is the narrator for them. His narration is clean and concise and it made listening a pleasure.

Adventure from the Titanic wreck to the church.

*I was given this free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This is the second listen I've done of Dan narrating. For me, Dan is one to listen to at normal speed because this is where you hear the calm in his voice that fits the genre of the book. To get a feel of his story telling, listen at normal speed, and if you want to speed it up, do so after you know his tone and feel for the characters. The audio is clean and clear. I didn't pick up anything distracting in the recording as I listened, I was focused on the voice and story.

There are times the characters sound as a weaker character because of the wording or spacing vocalized in speaking. The feel of interaction between the characters doesn't feel natural at times. It seemed to me that the questions the characters ask themselves make them sound short of smart. If they just drew conclusions, it would sound like they were more aware of what they were doing instead of questioning. I know these characters are smart or they wouldn't be doing what they are doing or lived through what they had.

When machinery is detailed out, I pay attention as I'm sure that will come back as things get dangerous. We are spending time under water with the characters, and there is danger there along with what they are exploring. And some of the details do come back into play.

Carter Hunt and Jayden Takada are a team. They work well together, but they seem a tad boring as a pair. In the beginning there didn't feel to be much difference between their personalities. Jayden's the one that cracks jokes off and on through the book, but at times they felt out of place for me. I understand it's Jayden's way of dealing with stressful moments, make a joke to lighten the moment to keep going. But the heart wasn't in the jokes.

This is the second book with the Omega team and I got a feel that the team may expand in number after this adventure. They could use a few more people on the team to do technical things while they are in the field and on the move. I think adding characters will add to the story along with depth of the characters. I'm curious to see more with the team and how the stories along with characters grow.

I enjoyed the thrill of the adventure Carter and Jayden were on. It's a series I'd like to see grow with characters and adventures. There's a lot of good in the story line to follow. I like Carter and Jayden's morals on life and what they are doing. I enjoyed the connections made to take them where they went in search of the Ark.

There is a thread left at the end of the book. It's not about the story but more along the lines of who their enemy is. Carter and Jayden don't want to kill anyone, so this leaves an opening for the "bad guy". So... what other artifacts can be found that both will fight over?

Adventurous with Slight Thriller


Carter Hunt and Jayden Takada laughs in the face of doom. Literally. The first third of the book takes place en route, during, and near (above) the wreck site of Titanic. And Jayden cracks jokes even when they’re about to lose power amidst the still black waters of the ocean depth.
There’s optimism then there’s unrealistic characteristics. Their easy banter was a bit too much.
The next third takes place en route to Mt Ararat. Jayden has calmed down (I’m hoping this jet lagged Jayden stays around) and I actually like him. I’m also jealous of their energy. The Energizer Bunny wants whatever they’re on.
The last third is in two pieces. Someplace they shouldn’t be and then someplace too sacred for them to be.

I think the joking at least kept the overuse of expletives other authors resort to. So Language was kept to a minimum.
I liked how it seemed the loose ends were tied up.
I felt they were able to escape a little too easily (once past the first third). It was almost like it was written for a younger audience.

Dan Delgado provided a wonderful performance and I enjoyed listening to him.

This is my voluntary review of an audiobook received for free.

Ancient Mystery Solved?

Ark Found: An Omega Files Adventure Book 2
By Rick Chesler
Performed by Dan Delgado

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I always like to preface any reviews I give with this information.
I am a 68 year old female who has been an avid reader since I was around 10 or 11 years old.

I have a great interest in many things. Ancient History and Archeology are at the top of a very long list.

I was very intrigued with the premise of this story.
Carter Hunt and Jayden Takada, former Navy Combat Veterans, of Omega Inc.; are hired by a client to recover a map that was lost when the Titanic was sunk. The original owner of the map,(an archelogist) was not able to escape the Titanic but his brother did and that is how we have a history that this map exists.
This map is believed to show the location of where Noah's Ark came to rest in Turkey.

In their attempt to procure the map using a 2 man submersible sub 'Deep Voyager', they run into a Nemesis named Daedalus of Treasure Inc., who is just as determined to retrieve this map. Daedalus craves the supposed fame and respect he believes riches will bring.

I found this part of the story very entertaining and somewhat intense as there develops a cat and mouse race to see who will successfully retrieve the map.

Of course you might guess that the bad guy gets the map. So Carter and Jayden have to try to get the map back from Daedalus.

I don't want to reveal any more of the story line past that point.

To me this is a tight story, well written, and also very believable. It is very refreshing to find books where the main character(s) are not some 16 year old with special abilities and hidden unknown powers that end up saving their world.

This book is, in my opinion well crafted and it is obvious to me that the author put a lot of time, energy, thought, and research into this amazing story.

I also liked the fact that there was not an excessive amount of violence. I read for entertainment and excessive violence is not entertaining to me.

This is a book that I would say anyone from 12 or 13 years of age and all of us above that age would enjoy.

I also liked the banter and verbal jibes that Carter and Jayden throw at each other throughout the book. There is tongue-in-cheek humor but also great respect among these former Navy veterans.
I truly appreciated that the two main characters were also former military men who served in the service of their country.

There are surprises and very clever clues that made listening to this audiobook something that I listened to in one setting.


I really enjoyed Dan Delgado's performance of this book. I was able to follow along with the changing dialogues of different characters and voices, and was very impressed with his ability with the regional accents of the characters.

This is also my first experience with Rick Chesler's writing and since this is Book 2, I will hope to get the first book to listen to at some point in the future!

Bottom Line: This is a great book. I can't say anything negative about it from my point of view. If you like adventure, action, archeology, and history with mystery thrown in, then get this book or audiobook.

You will not be disappointed!

Scyfy like you have never seen it told before.

First, I have to start off by stating that I got this book free of charge in exchange for a review, but as I always state, this does not in any way impact my review. My reviews are always honest and my own.

Lots of action which made it a real page-turner and a couple of late nights.

Carter and Jason are on a quest to find a document hidden on the Titanic. I won't go in more detail as I don't want to put in spoilers. I love the fast pace and interesting characters, some history and some myth. Can't wait for the next exciting adventure.

The hunt for two arks

Omega treasure hunters Carter and Jayden, are hired to retrieve a map from the legendary Titanic, which leads to a hunt for Noah's Ark. Good book but lacked a bit of action.

Well narrated by Dan Delgado, but the story lacked a sense of action.

Just regular Americans on vacation...

When the Titanic sank, it took with it an ancient map believed by the young Greek archaeologist who was taking it to America to show the location of the biblical Ark, built by Noah. A century later, Carter and Jaydon are hired to recover the map. But they are not the only ones looking for it and for ancient religious artefact to which it pointed.

Whilst the basic premise of the continued existence of such a map seemed, to this reader, completely ridiculous, Ark Found was a thrilling read, especially in the earlier stages with the attempted recovery of said map from the drowned Titanic and a batt!e of submersibles: atmospheric and quite terifying. The subsequent search and confrontations continued to be exciting, with splatters of humour from the ever joke-ready Jayson to lighter the tension. Narration by Dan Delago is excellent. His voice is pleasant and easy on the ear, the reading well modulated and with good intonation, never dull as he interprets the drama of the text. Each character is also given their own distinctive vice. A good performance which really enhances the story.

My thanks to the rights holder of Ark Found, who, at my request via Audiobook Boom, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy. Good characters and exciting situations, interspersed with humour, in this archaeological recovery adventure. A good read.
