Review

With the thoroughly enjoyable way Mr. Wood has mixed speculative history with our modern day pursuit of truth, he has created a story that thrills and makes one think beyond the boundaries of mere fiction and enter the world of 'why not'? Cibola is a worthy tale!" --David Lynn Golemon, Author of Ancients, Event, Legend, and Leviathan

"Ancient cave paintings? Cities of gold? Secret scrolls? Sign me up! Cibola is a twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and never lets go!" --Robert Masello, author of Bestiary and Blood and Ice

Lot's of fun and adventure.
Kenneth A. Marton
The history part was cool in the beginning but the ending was much too far-fetched to even be remotely believable; that kinda ruined it for me.

If you like Jack Du Brul, Clive Cussler or Tom Clancy, you will enjoy reading David Wood.

Women are bad news. Maddock should have known better but he - as is the case with so many men - couldn't help himself.

Cibola is the second novel from David Wood featuring the ex-Navy Seal Dane Maddock. We were introduced to Maddock and his friend Uriah "Bones" Bonebrake in Wood's first novel, Dourado. We are tantalized with another historically fictional prologue that introduces us to Fray Marcos de Niza, a Spaniard in the New World - ancient Argentina, if I have my facts straight - who is trying to keep the world's most amazing treasure from falling into the hands of Coronado. De Niza sacrifices quite a bit to pull this off but he cannot quite reconcile with the thought that the treasure would remain lost forever. So he leaves a trail of historic bread crumbs, knowing that one day someone will find the first one and then...

Rescuing a damsel in distress, Maddock helps Jade Ihara - Wood's femme fatale - find that fateful first clue left behind by de Niza. From the moment that Dane utters the ridiculously cool phrase, "You have the traditional Japanese beauty, with just a touch of the robust splendor of Polynesia." I knew that he and Jade would have an interesting relationship. And make no mistake, their relationship is one of the key plotlines in Cibola. But what sets Cibola apart is the number and complexity of characters and plotlines and how Wood weaves them all together expertly.

As he did in Dourado, the author uses Biblical and world history to create a fantastic treasure for his heroes to go after.

I won't bother to re-cap the plot and characters from the previous reviews. Suffice it to say that there is action and intrigue aplenty, with clues to decipher, mysteries to solve, bad guys from a Mormon perspective (not fully developed) and a great main character, Dane, and his sidekick Bones. It's sort of like a DaVinci code of the Southwest.

Anyway, I love this stuff (links to Clive Cussler are clear here) and it is a fun, entertaining thrill ride all the way.

The Kindle edition is perfectly formatted with TTS enabled.

David Wood- give me more of this!!

Oh, it was good! I have read a lot of action adventure novels from H. Rider Haggard to Cussler, McDermott and Rollins and this is a series I would definitely love to see continue. Conspiracies, religion, history and lots of action - this story has it all with some very funny stuff from my favorite character in this series, Bones Bonebrake. Entertaining and fun.

For the last few centuries, people have been combing the deserts of the Southwest looking for the Seven Golden Cities of Cibola. A lot of people have come away disappointed, a few haven't come back at all, but no one has found that legendary treasure...until now.

David Wood, author of Dourado (which actually had nothing at all to do with that other pre-Columbian American treasure El Dorado) has found the treasure of Cibola, and as it turns out, that treasure is Adventure! Wood's heroic team of Dane Maddock and Uriah Bonebreak, just back from the search for Goliath's sword, are ready to tear up the deserts of the American Southwest. Following the clues left by a Spanish conquistador, dogged by a militant religious cult, and courted by a memorable pair of brainy beauties, Dane and Bones--and Wood of course--once more deliver the goods: a rousing adventure with a nifty twist on the Old Testament. There may not really be any treasure out there in the desert, but David Wood certainly strikes gold with Cibola.

Very entertaining book though pretty far fetched in some ways (devices to keep story interesting). The writer is very imaginative. In some ways the style of the book reminds me of my favorite live sci-fi author, Jack McDevitt, whose books are searches, mysteries, feature a character, imaginative, and entertaining. Also, I had to read it as the author has my name (though no relation).

Cibola by David Wood is the second book in the Dane Maddock Adventures and it continues in the same fast moving action we found in Dourado. A slightly new cast is brought in, new locations are explored, and a hot fire romance is in the air. Twists, turns, and everything in between are brought into this new adventure but,with Dane and Bones around, there's nothing to fear - unless you work for the Dominion.

Dane Maddock and Uriah "Bones" Bonebreak, ex-Navy SEALs turned marine archaeologists, are back and they seem to like to accidentally fall into great adventures. Maddock starts off by rescuing the beautiful Jade Ihara from an underwater dig where she has found a Spanish breastplate that's more than just a historical artifact. After close examination of the breastplate, and a little of each other, they discover that it gives clues to the legendary Seven Cities of Cibola. Bones is out in Utah, far from the ocean, helping his cousin at a dig when they suddenly make a startling discovery that Jesus may have visited the New World during His ministry. As more information is uncovered, the dig comes under attack, Bones finds a gold disc, and, with the help of reporter Amanda Shores, Bones escapes. The highlight of all this is that they learn who was attacking them, the Dominion. While this has all been going on, both Dane and Jade set off to follow the clues but the Dominion follows them at every turn. Maddock, Bones, Jade, Saul (Jade's assistant), and Amanda all get together to collaborate recent events and find that their separate digs actually work together! They also discover that someone is feeding information to the Dominion as they go and this starts to create stress throughout the group as they begin working on the last clue.
