Publisher's Summary

The next three novels in the Sam Reilly series!

Audiobook seven: The Third Temple

A mystery wrapped in a myth about the origins of humanity. A race to find an ancient pyramid hidden in plain sight. A secret so dangerous its guardians will kill to protect it. And an ancient covenant that might save the world or destroy it completely. 

In 1655, a group of explorers from the Emerald Star entered the Namibian desert in search of an ancient relic rumored to be hidden in a secret temple. None of the crew ever returned - but stories of their mysterious demise continued to be told.

In the present-day Turkish subterranean city of Derinkuyu, a strange wooden placard is discovered floating in an old well. It’s covered in the script of a language long forgotten, but Sam Reilly has seen the text before. The words suggest an ancient race might still exist and is in the process of building a new temple.

The question is: Is it the same temple where Dr. Billie Swan is being held prisoner?

Audiobook eight: The Aleutian Portal

A Russian cargo ship sinks in the shallow waters of the Bering Strait and somehow vanishes without a trace. In the Colorado Plateau desert, a cowboy follows a river of sand into an undiscovered ruin. A tunnel-boring operation between the Alaskan and Siberian peninsulas is stalled when its largest burrowing machine disappears into an abyss.

Sam Reilly leads a search and rescue mission for the missing ship and crew. What should be a simple operation quickly turns into something much more dangerous. He soon learns all three strange events are irrevocably interwoven, and unlocking their connection may just hold the key to the survival of the human race.

Audiobook nine: Code to Extinction

Extreme weather conditions are wreaking havoc on the world, and baffled scientists are unable to discover the cause. The most powerful hurricane in history approaches New York, while at the same time atmospheric rivers flood Las Vegas. Wildfires spread through Canada, and Europe is wracked by powerful earthquakes. 

Most bizarre of all: A tempestuous mass of dark, foreboding sky seems to be spreading across the globe.

In Arizona, an astronomer tries to decipher the hidden message inside a 13,000-year-old megalithic stone, which just might hold the key to everything.

Can Sam Reilly and his unique team break the code to extinction?

It just keeps getting better and better!

Sam Reilley is a wealthy marine biologist that, with his friend and co-worker Tom, goes on hunts for various mythological items. He goes on several adventures, with each story detailing one or more treasures to be found. Finding the treasures often involve dangerous trials, including battling with the “bad guys”, and saving the world from destruction.   Volume 3 of the Sam Reilley Collection contains the following stories:   The Third Temple (Sam Reilly Book 7) In this story, Sam searches for an ancient pyramid with deadly secrets. Evidence of an ancient race arises which ties into other investigations Sam is involved in. So much history and fascinating facts in this one, what a beauty! The Aleutian Portal (Sam Reilly Book 8) Sam is leading a search and rescue mission for a missing ship and crew that disappeared without a trace. When Sam discovers that this was not the first ship to disappear and an undiscovered ruin is located, he realises that all these events are connected and he must solve the mystery to save the word. Packed full of action and intrigue, this is a must read! Code to Extinction (Sam Reilly Book 9) Extreme and deadly weather conditions along with a darkness in the sky means that Sam must discover the code to extinction hidden in an ancient stone to save the world. I absolutely love this one! Very interesting!   The stories are packed with descriptive scenes, life threatening situations, fast paced action and archaeological treasure hunting. They are cleverly unraveled to keep the listener excited and intrigued throughout, not to mention to hear the next stories in the series. The genre reminds me of Indiana Jones, James Bond and the like. Not only are they filled with action and adventure, I feel that I was also educated by them. There are so many fascinating facts coming through about various mythological things, some of which I had heard of and learned more about, and some that I hadn’t heard of before and learned all about in the books. The stories are well written with cleverly built up plots and characters, including twists and turns throughout. They follow a series with ongoing relationships and themes, but with a new adventure each time. Sometimes other stories are mentioned in other books that elude to future upcoming adventures, or previously completed adventures. The series is absolutely addictive and interesting and I cannot wait to hear the next ones!   David narrated expertly. With excellent intonation for various characters and energy and passion throughout the series. He was a perfect fit for what I believe the stories’ perspectives to sound like. There were also some interesting audio elements coming through like hearing two people speak at the same time and hearing people speak through voice scramblers. Overall, the performance was masterful and absolutely added to my enjoyment thereof.   I highly recommend this series. Be warned though, once you start you may not be able to stop!   Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this objective review voluntarily.

Continued discovery

This book continues the story of Sam and his crew. The first book is the search for the third temple and a group called the builders. Each book builds well on the previous books and leads well into the book that follows. The story is well written and all the books are tied together well. The narration of the book was good. This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.

Good series

The Third Temple, my seventh read from author Christopher Cartwright & the seventh book in the highly entertaining Sam Reilly series. Well-written and captivating. The Aleutian Portal, my eighth read from author Christopher Cartwright & the eighth book in the highly entertaining Sam Reilly series. Well-written and captivating with well-developed main characters. Code to Extinction, my ninth read from author Christopher Cartwright & the ninth book in the highly entertaining Sam Reilly series. Well-written and captivating thriller with well-developed main characters. Reminds me of Dan Brown’s early writing as well as the character of Indiana Jones. I’ll be reading more by this author as I already own more books in the series! (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Absolutely Love this Series!!

Another great collection of Sam Reilly adventures. Lots of action, adventure, intrigue and mystery all around. Like the others, you don't have to listen to any of the stories in any order but if you listen to one after the other it seems to be a whole other level of entertaining. I love Sam Reilly and the things he gets himself into...well, he seems to have a knack for it. Again the narration is done by David Gilmore and he does an excellent job. I love how he has kept Sam's voice the same through nine books!! I also enjoy how Mr Gilmore gives all the other characters their own voices and emotions. All together, this is a wonderful series that will pull you in and give you hours of enjoyment. I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Sam Reilly prophecy breaker!!!

Third collection of Sam Reilly books and he is back in action, as he searches for a way to stop the extinction of the human race. Good to have in a collection, as 2nd & 3rd book follow the Death Stone and nice to have back to back. Well narrated again by David Gilmore, as before, he keeps the pace and action moving.

It just keeps getting better and better!

After listening to the first collection, I was hooked. After listening to the second and now the third, I am still loving every second! The author has done a wonderful job weaving these books together, creating layers of entertaining story lines. The way he merges history, with current events, science and adventure is amazing! Each book on its own is a great story, but all of them together are creating a much bigger story that is wonderful as well. I look forward to listening to the rest of the series! I have been given a free copy of this book, in exchange for an unbiased review
