Exciting thrill ride

I very much enjoyed this novella. It managed to pack a lot of information and scenes into such a short tale while still leaving the reader wanting more. Narrator C. J. McAllister did an excellent job narrating and bringing the story to life. Pacing was excellent. **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

Silver City

I liked the book to begin with. It was fast paced and had an interesting plot. Somethings I guessed whilst others not so much. My problem with this book is that the main character cared more for his dog than his brother. He did not even try to get him back. I mean really. The second I felt it was rushed towards the end. It could do with an extension. I felt dissatisfied when I finished listening to it. Other than this it was an interesting read. Would I listen or read the next in the series? I would actually. I want to know what happens next.

Great Prelude!

If you like archeological mysteries, this book is for you. The listen is more of a short story lasting a little over 3 hours and I was not ready for it to end. Author Brad King takes the listener from the hot sands of Egypt to the cold ice of Siberia in search of the Silver City. Narrator CJ McAllister is one of my favorites and does his usual excellent narration. I can’t wait for the next installment. I just hope it is more the length of a novel. I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my unbiased review.

Discoveries, deceptions and digits.

This book acts as an excellent prequel to a.new series, Father Earth, which details how Finn Shaw, aged 24, came to be the person he will undoubtedly be in the forthcoming books. The earlier part of the novella is devoted to Finn's personal background: his hopes, ambitions and the family he loves, at the same time giving the reader a glimpse into his personality. The the location moves to Egypt with new boss, Ryan, and the excavations taking place, and it is here that the adventure begins. The story is intriguing but holds little sense of tension and, although considerable energy has been put into building character, they remain mostly flat and unreal, protagonists seen through a misted glass. And the ending, when it comes, seems to be rushed. C.J.McAllister, the narrator, helps to fill some of the character deficiencies, giving each an individual voice and breathing extra life into each one, Finn included. And his reading was paced with the text. But his performance is tempered by the writing itself - there is only so much that he can do. Overall, it was a short, easy read which, essentially, simply introduced the man who will almost certainly be the main protagonist of the new series whose nature will be essential in understanding the books to come. These hold promise of exciting stories and great potential. My thanks to the rights holder of Silver City who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom.

pretty good prequel

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This was an interesting, if short, sci fi/adventure story. I thought it was well written and narrated and very entertaining. It was good enough that I'm interested in the full series.

A great beginning for a series!

The author Brad W. King had started writing a beautiful story, this first part as short as it is includes so much in it, like a great adventure, mysteries, gangsters and much much more. I can only hope that the whole series will continue with such greatness as this was. A lot of credit belongs to the narrator C. J. McAllister who totally brought this story to life, every character was narrated perfectly, you could feel each of the characters felling like your own. Both the author and the narrator or more like the story and the narrator where a perfect match! I full heartedly without a doubt recommend this audiobook for all !!! In exchange for an honest review I’ve received this audiobook.

Not a bad beginning

I finished the book "The evil of father" first, and I'm pretty sure that's how it should be. This was a fun precursor to that story, great if you're a fan if the series or are interested in it. I'd recommend it.

Eh

This story was ok, it wasn't bad or really good either. I feel like the plot was too forced. why did the main character pocket the artifact and take the chance of giving up his life dream on the first day? Why did the girl follow suit? why was the silver City in the snowy mountains? and since it was in the snowy mountains why did it start in Egypt instead of Asia? it was all very disjointed. I also feel like it over explained and described a lot of characters that had little to nothing to actually do with the story to add length more than for any other reason. The other criticism I have is that the dialogue felt unnatural. I was given a free copy of this book for an unbiased review.
