Critic Reviews

“David Wood has done it again. Within seconds of opening the book, I was hooked. Intrigue, suspense,monsters, and treasure hunters. What more could you want? David's knocked it out of the park with this one!” (Nick Thacker, author of The Enigma Strain)

“A page-turning yarn blending high action, Biblical speculation, ancient secrets, and nasty creatures. Indiana Jones better watch his back!” (Jeremy Robinson, author of SecondWorld)   

“Dane and Bones.... Together they're unstoppable. Rip roaring action from start to finish. Wit and humor throughout. Just one question - how soon until the next one? Because I can't wait.” (Graham Brown, author of Shadows of the Midnight Sun)

Action and Adventure - Dane and Bones At It Again

Dane and Maddock do it again - this time they take on an unlikely foe.  With an addition of a journalist and an eccentric cryptozoologist, they set off to find out the origins of some of the oldest mysteries.

Pretty much any time I see a new book out by David Wood I want to jump on it right away - he has this way of writing these unbelievable stories but making them still seem realistic and enjoyable all at the same time.  The characters of Dane and Bones are two of my favorites.  They work so well together and make each book different in some way.  All of the stories I've read in this series have been enjoyable high-action adventure books with a lot of history thrown in.  There are a lot of mysteries out there to solve and I hope that Wood continues to dive into them.

The main premise of dragging Dane and Bones out was to find the lost treasure related to a sunk German U-Boat in the Irish Sea - what they find while looking for it spins them into another crazy monster hunt.  It's pretty obvious by the title of the book and even the image what they think they've found - but I won't ruin it here.

If you're thinking about picking up Loch - just know that you're in for an enjoyable, action-packed adventure book with a great cast of characters that will leave no rock unturned to find what they set off for. Loch is yet another winner from Wood and one that I won't forget for time to come.

Missed the mark for me.

I am a huge Dane and Bones fan, so I was quite disappointed in this edition.
I felt like the back story of the artifacts, the source or origin of their mystical powers, how the prehistoric monster was guided to guard the treasure generation after generation, and especially the secret society and their motivations were almost completely overlooked.
I read this series for what it is, a fun predictable adventure series with familiar characters who always prevail, and I don't except a ton of depth from each book, but I feel like this one really missed the mark for me and only left me vaguely aware of what was really going on.

I actually enjoyed the character of Grizzly and although I haven't encountered him in any of the other books, I hope he pops up again. He was the perfect level of "douche" and made me laugh.
