Publisher's Summary

The beginning of the end

A deadly swarm of earthquakes shakes the planet. In the sky above, the sun appears to stand still. While the world reels from the vast destruction, George Pierce and the Cerberus Group, a team of scientific and historical experts, uncover an imminent threat straight out of history that must be stopped. But not everyone wants them to succeed. 

An apocalyptic death cult, made up of suicidal martyrs and true believers who will do whatever it takes to ensure the destruction of all life on Earth, goes head-to-head with a billionaire tech genius commanding an army of robots, on a quest to own the sun itself. 

Caught in the middle, the Cerberus Group must fend off both sides while traveling to every corner of the map, and into the depths of myth and history, to find the holiest treasure on Earth - an artifact that can harness the power of creation. The prophecies are true. 

The end is nigh.

Jeremy Robinson and Sean Ellis, the international best-selling team behind the Jack Sigler thrillers, including Cannibal and Empire, continue the new series that rewrites the way we see history. Rivaling the best of Matthew Reilly and James Rollins, Helios combines a blistering pace with fringe science and myths reborn.

Helios

I actually liked this one better than book 1.While the goal is constantly changing for the group as they discover more clues,the end goal is to save earth from those wanting to destroy it.It is full of action and globe hopping.Interesting characters.Jeffrey Kafer is the perfect narrator.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Cerbrus Group bible tumper edition

The novel was abit high-speed in events that it felt like the badguy was taking his time to much in plans that felt dumb or why expose your self when he could used terrorist has cover himself longer to inact his plans. I also felt Jeffrey could have eork on middle eastern accents and Jeremy avoided uses secentences in those languages when random chacthers talk to them self and directly to any MC's.

Fantasy not fantastic

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. I had a difficult time with this audiobook. It has all the right elements to be a good listen but I just did not enjoy it. Maybe it was too over the top. The narration was rather boring also.

Another good one from the Jeremy Robinson group

I always enjoy the novels written by Robinson and the authors he collaborates with. If you like his novels in general then you should enjoy this one. He mentions a name at the very end of the story, giving us a little preview of who may show up in the next book. Hopefully he brings the whole group along with him.

Adventure to save the world from unknown weapon

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Jeffrey is one of my favorite narrators, especially for the adventures into dangerous places for the unknown. He's voiced these characters in the first book and continues with the same personalities in this one. Jeffrey never gives away what's to come in his voice. He's always in the moment with the characters, experiencing the event s as they would while bringing their reactions to life in voice. Always a pleasure to listen to Jeffrey. Something I notice about the story is it feels as though we are getting to the end of what is causing the problems, just to learn it's the start of all troubles we are experiencing. Yes, the story starts off with a bang and doesn't slow, things become greater in stakes and action. This is a talent that comes through in the writing. They really thought out this story and all the connections to grow the dangers and connect everything together. I love how things come together. These stories bring things together I wouldn't expect to relate, yet they fit. Religion, gods, aliens, and so much more tie in threads to each other along with adventure. I get caught up and find I stop and listen, pausing to take it all in. It opens my mind to the possibilities the authors are creating with the characters and events. I can see the connections! Myths and the way things were related in stories for what could have been something people lived through. There is a possibility these myths could relate to the current problems, with earthquakes all at once then a ticking clock at happening again. The ticking clock that could bring about the end of the world as we know it. I enjoy these characters. They are like their own little X-men team on an Indiana Jones adventure. There are a few with their own abilities, which we get a quick explanation in this story too. I really like them, and their origin stories. Their personalities fit together to make a team that cares for each other and jokes in good humor. There are deeper ties with these characters that hold them together as a chosen family. There are so many layers to this story. I would love to listen to it and the previous book again. There are connections to the Herculean group they are part of along with other ties. I have a feeling things mentioned here will come into play in the future too. And I'm hooked on the series, with the characters and what we learn about the group they are part of. I'll have my eyes on the lookout for the next book!

The Cerberus Group Is Back

Helios is the follow up to Herculean. They are part of the Cerberus Group Series. Many of the characters are (were) part of the Chess Team collection of stories. I do not think Helios stands alone. I think I would have been very confused if I had not listened to Herculean, even though I have heard many of the Chess Team books. There is a lot of action and much mythology in the tale. At times I felt like I should have read Edith Hamilton's Mythology (like I was supposed to in High School but didn't). The book is formulaic, but that is not necessarily bad because the formula works. This is end of the world, seat of your pants adventure with killer robots, dastardly villains, and really bad guys. Jeffery Kafer as usual was wonderful. He always adds that sense of excitement and drama. I was given a free copy of this book at my request for an biased review.
