Publisher's Summary

Nick Randall is an archeologist who believes mankind isn't alone on Earth. When a mysterious benefactor funds his research, he departs to find the lost city of Vilcabamba. Hidden deep in the Amazon, Randall believes the city holds proof that his controversial theories are true. Upon arriving at the ruins, he mysteriously disappears. Randall's beautiful daughter Samantha learns of her father's disappearance from his mentor Francisco Andrade who pleads for her help. An accomplished archeologist herself, Sam must decide if she will set aside her career and search for the man she blames for her mother's death. But someone else is looking for her father as well. Francis Dumond, a shadowy man with unlimited resources, will stop at nothing to find Vilcabamba and use its technology to control the world. It's a race against time as Sam battles to find her father, prove his theories and stop Dumond before a stratovolcano destroys Vilcabamba and all of them as well.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Suspenseful, fun, adventurous, the author does a good job at bringing the exotic locations and characters to life and feeling the action up to the last and every single chapter. Great sic-fi, adventure,and thriller.

    Story
    "Music, sound effects, high action, great narration"

    Like the characters in this audiobook, the listener gets more than expected. Producer and reader, Christopher Shelby Slone enhances his narration with a full underscore of music and sound effects. It adds to the adventure enormously.

    Like all good archaeological adventures – think "Indiana Jones" as a prime example – The Vilcabamba Prophecy throws the characters deep into uncharted jungles where they discover an ancient tribe, potentially alien artefacts, subversive plots and danger at every turn. This story is a lot of fun, made more so by the excellence of Slone’s narration.

    Author Robert Raposa’s novel is a thrill ride from start to finish. His characterisations are well-developed, with their personality traits and interactions being both believable and satisfying. As they dodge bullets, rock falls, an erupting volcano and more, their fraught mission to uncover the secret of Vilcabamba never lets up the tension.

    It begins when controversial archaeologist, Dr. Nick Randall, and his team are attacked and go missing in Peru. The career of his estranged daughter, Samantha, has followed in her father’s footsteps and she’s called in to continue his work and, in doing so, hopefully find him. From there, plots and counterplots unfold as the two Randall teams fight to survive, find each other, and reach the finish line before the bad guys.

    The quality of writing and narration, along with the music and sound effects, puts The Vilcabamba Prophecy up there with the very best of the 40+ audiobooks I’ve heard so far this year. It’s difficult to pause because the adventure is so enjoyable and the production quality is so high.

    Bravo to both Robert Rapoza and Christopher Shelby Slone. I review a lot of self-published audiobooks on my site at SaidNotRead dot wordpress dot com but rarely do they reach the quality and heights of this one.

    Highly recommended.

    Story
    "History, Mystery,Thriller & Science Fiction in one"

    The book is a combination of history, mystery, thriller and science fiction in one. The story is totally original and was well written. The genre of science fiction doesn't hold much appeal for me, but this was a very intriguing story. Parts of it I absolutely loved and other parts not so much. The narrator did a great performance on this book. Some listeners will enjoy some of the sound effects (jungle birds, music, etc) while others might not. Those sound effects were mainly at chapter breaks and reminded me of listening to mystery theater growing up. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it.

    "An Excllent Read You Can't Put Down"
    Any additional comments?

    As someone else said this book wraps many different genres into a single exciting read. The dramatization is enjoyable as well. I never thought I'd enjoy an audiobook with dramatization and my initial instinct was to be distracted by it. However, once you are about half an hour into the book it sets atmosphere without your conscious mind acknowledging it and makes the entire experience more enjoyable. Everyone has said it before, this book is a wild ride from beginning to end and you won't be able to put it down. Well worth a credit, you've got to give it a try!

    "Indiana Jones like story - OK narration"

    This story sounds like something out of an Indian Jones movie! The story is entertaining and keeps you engaged. There are no slow times in the novel. Overall it's enjoyable. Parts of it are a little over the top. At times I found myself wishing there was a little more depth to the characters. However, overall I found it enjoyable!

    The narrator is a little too dramatic for my taste. I did enjoy all the sound effects that are included in the story. It made it feel like you were listening to a movie rather than an audio book.
