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

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.

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.

Cibola is the 2nd in the Dane Maddock Adventure series that is written by David Wood.

Jade Ihara has spent her life searching for Cibola, or more accurately, the legend of the seven gold cities of Cibola that Coronado tried to find. She gets a lead which sends her to Argentina and an underwater well. She meets up with Maddock when she almost drowns in the underwater caves that lead to the well. He saves her life. She then talks him into going back down with her and they find a shield with a map on it. Thus beings their race against and organization bent on world dominance.

Bones is off helping his cousin with an archaeological dig in Utah and uncovers two very curious cave paintings and a gold artifact. The finds end up tying into the search that Jade and Dane are involved in. Bones and his girlfriend join up with Dane and Jade.

David Wood weaves history and myth from various cultures and time periods into an adventure that leads to a great treasure that must never come to light. Cibola is great addition to the Dane Maddock Adventures.

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!!

The David Wood Dane Maddock Adventures books are simply enjoyable. They’re not too deep in plot or with intricate characters, but have fast paced action, impossible scenarios and improbable escapes. They move along very quickly and smoothly. Another reviewer called these “Clive Cussler lite” and that’s a very apt description. This one is no exception. The author does very credible historical research when developing these Adventures and it shows in the cohesiveness of the story. If you’re craving a few hours of enjoyable escapism, then read one of the Dane Maddock Adventures books.

Good book which I enjoyed for the most part, and would normally rate 4 stars, but I had to dock it another star because I felt the book really fell apart toward the end. If you like books by James Rollins, Steve Berry, and other similar authors you might enjoy this - but it's not nearly as good overall as books by Rollins or Berry. I actually purchased this about 3 years ago and got around to reading this last week . . . the premise of the story did not grab me at first. There are several good things about the book - some of the characters are pretty interesting, the story is exciting at times, once it gets going it is not boring by any means. But a few problems, also mentioned by other reviewers, include one element too many of common adventure story lines (i.e., biblical treasure hunt, following a trail of clues to find hidden passages, secret society, monsters); the plot seems to accelerate and suddenly end abruptly, to me, without a very good resolution; and the mistakes or abuses of protocol the archeology "heroes" commit along the way. Still, fairly enjoyable read if you just want to escape for a while and follow an adventure.
