Publisher's Summary

What dark secret did the Founding Fathers of America hide, and who will stop at nothing to uncover it?

Navy SEALs in-training, Dane Maddock and Bones Bonebrake can't be in the same room without trying to kill each other, but soon find themselves caught up in a race with a secret society to solve a mystery that dates back to the founding of America. Find out how it all began in the action-packed first Dane and Bones Origins novella... Freedom!

Praise for the Dane Maddock Adventures:

"Freedom rocks! David Wood and Sean Sweeney serve up a great story of how it all began. Dane and Bones are in perfect form as they unravel a devilishly clever historical mystery that traces back to the early days of the nation." (Sean Ellis, author of Fortune Favors)

"David Wood has done it again. Quest takes you on an expedition that leads down a trail of adventure and thrills. David Wood has honed his craft and Quest is proof of his efforts!" (David L. Golemon, Author of Legacy and The Supernaturals)

"Ancient cave paintings? Cities of gold? Secret scrolls? Sign me up! A twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and never lets go!" (Robert Masello, author of The Medusa Amulet)

"A non-stop thrill ride triple threat - smart, funny and mysterious!" (Jeremy Robinson, author of Instinct and Threshold)

"Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop until the last mystery plays out in the final line." (Edward G. Talbot, author of 2010: The Fifth World)

"An all-out blitzkrieg of a globe-trotting mystery-adventure that breaks from the action just long enough for a couple of laughs." (Rick Chesler, author of kiDNApped and Wired Kingdom)

"David Wood delivers again in Buccaneer with a fast-paced romp, complete with sunken treasure maps, hidden Templar churches and a secret organization that wants to resurrect an ancient kingdom. Fantastic!" (J.F. Penn, author of the ARKANE thrillers)

"David Wood captures all the adventure, twists and surprises, camaraderie, and treasure you could hope for in an action series." (Kane Gilmour, Author of Resurrect and co-author of Ragnarok)

    My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.

    "LOWER PEOPLE'S EXPECTIONS AND IT'S EASIER TO TAKE"

    THEM BY SURPRISE
    These guys like to write about history, with a heavy dose of conspiracy theory. This involves the founding fathers and a secret society. I did not get into this story, but the concept is a fun one and I will continue the series. I do like the characters. Good characters can cover for a meh story.

    I'LL SPEND HALF MY PAY ON CHEAP BEER AND WOMEN, THE OTHER HALF I'LL WASTE.

    "A great story"
    Any additional comments?

    A novella full of intrigue, action and friendship. While I listened to this I couldn't help but smirk every now and then when something was revealed or happened that had been eluded too in other books (the Dane Maddock Adventure series), it's one of the reasons I like origin stories but this one seemed to do it better than most. A talent that David Wood seems to have at capturing a readers attention. It was really interesting seeing how Dane and Bones' friendship came to be. I listened to it in one sitting...it is that good. Kafer did as he always does and captivates the listener as he tells the story as only he can.

    Story
    "Freedom is an amazing work of fiction.."
    If you could sum up Freedom in three words, what would they be?

    An Absolute Pleasure


    What other book might you compare Freedom to and why?

    Indiana jones, Allan Quatermain, The Fargo Adventures, because there all treasure hunting adventure Books that are Highly Entertaining.. & they save the world a few times as well :)


    What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

    yes he is a very talented Narrator highly enjoyable..


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    stand aside Indiana jones, The Fargo's or Allan Quatermain here comes Dane Maddock & Bones Bonebrake


    Any additional comments?

    This Being the first book in the Dan and Bones Origin Series was a great read this one didn't disappoint at all
    I read the previous 6 books in the Dane Maddock Adventures and they were just Amazing if you like this book then get the 6 book in the Dane Maddock Adventures and listen to more adventures with dane and bones..

    Story
    "Interesting Take on the Revolutionary War"

    First let me say that the narration was great. I enjoyed Mr. Kafer's acting of the characters in the book and thought he brought them to life. For the story, 3.5 stars, an interesting take and a new twist on a theme I have seen before. However, I really liked the characters of Dane and Bones and will look into more of their stories.

    "Just OK"

    Pretty shallow mystery, along the lines of those movies about finding secrets in the constitution etc. I hope the rest of the series is better not sure if I dare waste a credit on the next one or not. OK narration. It great but ok with a limited cast.

    "Freedom"
    What did you like best about Freedom? What did you like least?

    Freedom is short novel but either way it is a full-length fantastic book, and the narrator did a good job reading this audiobook. It is another great offering in the Dane Maddock series.
