    1. I didn’t dislike this book. I think that’s important to say right off the bat. In fact, I still generally really like this entire series. The problem, however, is that for the first time, I’m starting to see the same things cycle through thematically and plot wise, and it’s starting to get a little tiresome. This series is starting to skirt that really dangerous line that longer series often fall prey too, and I’m really hoping the next veers away sharply.See, for as often as I’m goi [...]


    2. 2* Ths is tough to write. Thrillers dealing with archaeology are often among my favourites, so I had high hopes for this. And throughout, there were enough teasers and questions thrown out to keep me going and I did listen to the end. But there were many times when I very nearly gave up, and it was all for the same reasons: a smash to the side of the head, blood spurting; his fingers slipped and he smashed his way down the cliff, blood spurting; one vehicle smashing another one, occupants gettin [...]


    3. Soooo, this was a very long and slow read. I skimmed a lot of it and *SPOILERS* I'm sick of the same stuff. heavey military. Eddie and Nina fighting, death of the beloved friend. I think how this one ended the next one will be interesting, especially as Eddie's in the run alone, but I won't be jumping at it any time soon.


    4. If you want action, history, adventure, archeology, plot twist on twists and intrigue -- then this series is for you. Another fabulous addition to the Nina and Eddie show!Obviously these books are fairly formulaic but they are well written and fast-pacedd if you like this sort of genre, it will hit the right spot. Personally I'd read it just for Eddie and his hilarious potty mouthed strings of annoyance and abuse.


    5. I think I'm leaning closer to 3.5 Stars, than 4 for this one. Another enjoyable read in the series, although the further I get into it the more I like Eddie, and dislike Nina - her choices quite frankly have started to make me want to throw the book at her. McDermott provides an intriguing look into Eddie's past, and Macy makes a return (yay!). Overall the book did feel strangely paced - the actual archaeological discovery seemed to take up such a small part of the book (compared to others in th [...]


    6. I've only read a few of Andy McDermott books, but this felt very much like a rerun of a previous novel, just in a different location. Some of the military moves that Eddie pulls off really stretches the imagination to the limit. I know it's fiction but even so!Hard going in places, mainly because it's covering similar ground. Interesting ending however, so will read the next one to see where that takes us.


    7. It's always interesting when the reader/narrator of an audio book changes. Up until now it's been Gildart Jackson, but with Empire of Gold, it's now Robin Sachs. I'm guessing Gildart was picked to make make sure Eddie's Yorkshire accent was there. Unfortunately when lots of the other characters aren't English, the still tend to sound it, plus the voice for Nina tended toward unrelenting bitchy. Now Robin on the other hand sounds like a well-pleased cat lapping scotch by the fire. His voice is de [...]


    8. Very good, but the violence is too gory for my tastes. The author writes as if these books are action movies, so everything is quite detailed, down to specific details of goryness. Not for the faint of heart, or stomach. Other than that, a wonderful story.


    9. As expected this book is a mixture of archaeology and military the longtimeline of my read suggests that there were a couple of times I want to put this book back to the shelf it became fast-paced in the few chapters before the end which will push you to read the next book in the series.




    10. Action all the time, almost too much for my taste. The story itself continues in another book, leaving one of the main mysteries of the book unsolved, which was disappointing.


    11. It would be nice if the heroes could manage not to blow up or damage archaeological finds in ther efforts to stop the bad guys.



    12. We get something a bit different. Instead of starting off with an innocent group of people getting wiped out by the bad guys, this goes back and shows us a Special Forces incident from Eddie’s past. A very enlightening look. The majority of this story takes place in the jungles of Venezuela, Columbia and Peru as they fight off mercenaries, revolutionaries and drug dealers in search of El Dorado. Eddie is being childish again. He needs a big spanking (and I don’t mean the good kind). You’d [...]


    13. Book Description (from back of book)" Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are back for their seventh blockbusting adventure by the bestselling author of THE HUNT FOR ATLANTIS, Andy McDermott. When archaeologist Nina Wilde and her husband, ex-SAS soldier Eddie Chase, are given the chance to work on an Interpol investigation into smuggled artifacts, they are stunned to realise that the artifacts hold clues to the location of a lost Inca settlement hidden somewhere in South America. As Nina and Eddie dig de [...]


    14. I'm angry with Andy McDermott, and no this is not a bad review. He simply ruined my summer.Oh, he wrote a quality book in "Empire of Gold." The adventure captured me from first page to last. The problem is, the story goes beyond the last page -- way beyond. Into a whole other book. Those hoping to read "Empire" as a standalone -- it is summer after all and there are concerts, sporting events and vegging on the porch with your favorite beverage -- prepare for disappointment. Consider this a preca [...]


    15. Nina Wilde & Eddie Chase are back again in Book#7 by Andy McDermott. This time it is Venezuela & Peru which is their in their cross sites. The mysterious statues introduced in The Cult Of Osiris and The Sacred Vault is brought to the fore again.There is a 3rd statue and a mysterious organization called Group wants them all. But they need Nina Wilde's help to put together all the statues. Wilde and Chase are put on it's trail by Ankit Jindal the interpol head of cultural investigations wh [...]


    16. Andy McDermott continues his series of the adventures of Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase with what is possibly the most emotional book yet in the series. I wasn't expecting for this book to have a moment at the end where the characters had a fight that felt real, but it sure enough does. It's a big spoiler to say why it happens, or what the aftermath is, but it leaves a very big cliff hanger for the next book, even more so than the other at least two cliff hangers that had already been created.I am s [...]


    17. 3.5 stars. I thought partway through this that it was actually one of the better ones in the series and I was right. There was very slightly less mindless bickering between Eddie and Nina (I was nearly ready to throw in the towel and I definitely called Nina some names within the first few chapters), but fortunately the two weren't together too often during this episode.I did cry. I never expected I would with one of these, but I get a bit that way when a character gets crapped on too much. (Lik [...]


    18. Finished the latest book in the Eddie Chase and Nina Wilde series. Promised so much and yet felt the book was overly long with fillers. I have read all Andy's books and have loved them all so very much. Maybe for the next novel Eddie's father could get together with Nina, after all they would have so much in common (neither listen). I would have thought after all their adventures and years together that Nina would have understood Eddie and his actions. The ending was some what, how can I put it [...]


    19. Deep in the jungles of South America, an incredible treasure has been hidden for centuries. Archaeologist Nina Wilde possesses the key to finding it - but in her way stand revolutionaries and drug lords, fighting for control over the riches of a lost empire!Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are back for their seventh blockbusting adventure by the New York Times bestselling author of THE HUNT FOR ATLANTIS. Their goal this time is the legendary last outpost of the Inca Empire - which could point the way [...]


    20. A RUMOR OF RICHES. A MAZE OF MURDER. AND THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS, SOUGHT-AFTER PRIZE.Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase possess extraordinary pieces of an ancient puzzle that leads them from Singapore to the jungles of South America. Inside a storm of political and drug warfare, Nina is getting close to one of history's greatest secrets: the mythical golden city of El Dorado. As one discovery unveils another, Nina realizes that a legendary Incan leader made a deal with his Spanish captors--and hid fo [...]


    21. This was one of the better ones of the series. I enjoyed the differing events in this book and the tensions that will be explored in the next book. I especially enjoyed the last parts of the book and the convergence from the usual formula of the previous novels; actual twists - nice touch. I'm starting to find that the constant 'action action action' is getting quite redundant though. The purpose of action in a book is to drive events forward. When a book - such as this one - is basically all ac [...]


    22. Дюд, ето това е приключенски трилър, деба - събрал всичко най-добро от Индиана Джоунс, Лара Крофт, Ънчартед игрите и квото се сетите - а е том СЕДМИ от поредицапросто няма как да не издиря предните и следващите.Елфът СТРОГО препоръчва!


    23. Whilst this was better than Hunt for Atlantis, it was still disappointing. It's half a book really. You start off with the story set up to be about some fancy statues, the whole book is about tracing the missing statue in the set and then on the last page, the story isn't resolved and you're left with essentially a forward sell for the next book.In my mind a good series allows you to read a single book and enjoy it, yet read them all and benefit from a continuing set of plots & sub plots wat [...]


    24. I like to think of Andy McDermott as Clive Cussler but with more action, mayhem, and swearing. This time, Nina and Eddie are looking for El Dorado. They're also looking for a 3rd purple stone statue similar to ones found in previous books. They meet old friends and enemies. They get embroiled in the middle of a military coup in Venezuela. Drug kingpins and Maoist rebels are also in the mix. Whew! They sure get around. Annoyingly, the book ends in a sort of cliffhanger. I understand authors want [...]


    25. Oops! I read this between Graham Brown books (Black Rain/Sun), and got my mind all fuzzed with different Mayan Doomsday prophecies. Did the same thing a few years ago by reading 3 different Atlantean myth stories in too small a timeline.Anyway sure, sure the story is great. But if you have been enjoying the main characters in these (8 so far?) books, this one is a fantastic read. I looooove where this book leaves off.My reviews for McDermott's Chase/Wilde books are going to pretty much the sam [...]


    26. A blockbuster thriller for sure. nonstop action in which one must accept the premise that the main protagonist is just one short step away from being superman. The number of difficult situations that he gets himself in and manages to escape with only minor (I assume they are minor since he;s up and running off to his next encounter quite quickly) injuries is amazing. The story is Eddie Chase and his archeologist wife are hot on the trail of discovering the location of El Dorado, the city of gold [...]


    27. I have read all the books about Ninas and Eddies adventures throughout the world. I have enjoyed them all, some more and some less. Empire of gold is an enjoyable read with all the usual action, adventure and banter. Why change a winning formula? But the book could have used some editing (I am looking at you armoured car sequence in the middle) and the story isnt up to its usual standard. But the ending is very good and almost makes up for the books shortcomings. As usual if you didnt like McDer [...]
