From Publishers Weekly
A high level of tolerance for implausibility is required to enjoy bestseller Cussler's high-octane 11th Oregon Files adventure (after 2015's Piranha), the second in the series to be coauthored by Morrison. Juan Cabrillo runs the Corporation, an off-the-books U.S. government intelligence operation, based on the Oregon, a super-ship fitted with "revolutionary new magnetohydrodynamic engines" and an array of powerful weapons. The Oregon also features the amenities of a luxury liner, including an Olympic-sized swimming pool, chefs "trained at the Cordon Bleu," and a Navy-trained chief medical officer whose "lab coat remained spotless as it draped over her voluptuous curves." The Corporation is facing an unprecedented challenge after someone who hacked into a Monaco bank's systems threatens to plunge the European economy into chaos. The scheme is somehow connected with the search for "Napoleon's lost Russian treasure using a diary the emperor left behind after he was supposedly kidnapped from exile without anyone realizing it"; even the characters acknowledge that the premise is bizarre. The authors keep things moving at a fast pace, but there's nothing in this outing that genre fans haven't seen before. Agent: Peter Lampack, Peter Lampack Agency. (May)\n
Praise for The Emperor's Revenge
“The Oregon Files series is in great hands with Boyd Morrison working with Clive Cussler. The Emperor’s Revenge is a solid and fun entry that showcases what fans love when they pick up one of Cussler’s novels: a wonderful blend of action-adventure and history.”—Associated Press
“Another rollicking Juan Cabrillo adventure. Nefarious deeds and derring-do from the Monaco Grand Prix to Malta, Germany, Lithuania, Holland, and the Baltic. The exotic weapons-driven, more-threads-than-a-sweater narrative explodes with action, dead bodies hither and you, with Cabrillo making…skin-of-the teeth escapes.” – Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Piranha:
“Piranha is a perfect beach read . . . the best entry in the series to date.” —Associated Press
“The action is supercharged.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Cussler scores a direct hit. Series fans will have a lot of fun.” —Publishers Weekly

One chapter was quite interesting. It was a scene that was also in the last NUMA story, "The Pharaoh's Secret." That scene included both Kurt Austin and Juan. It was written in that book from Kurt's POV of course. In "The Emperor's Revenge" the scene is written from Juan's POV.
Overall this book is a fast moving, involving adventure that leaves you eager for the next one.
It of course is always sad when a crew member is lost, but it makes the story more real.
Maybe Juan's love life will eventually give us a baby Juan. Who is to say....
Because of the age we live in, I enjoyed the large part our computer geeks played in the book. They were really the main focus, with the other story lines playing a minor roll. This was different from other books.
Maybe the Oregon will incorporate some of the advanced weaponry or engine capacity found in the yacht so they can be better prepared in future books.
Beginning with the days of Napoleon and moving to the present day, "The Emperor's Revenge" is loaded with twists and turns. During the Monaco Grand Prix, a bank heist perpetrated by Sergy Golov and his daughter Ivana have cleaned out many accounts, including that of Juan Cabrillo and his Corporation. But the bank job is only the beginning of a master plan that includes taking over the entire electrical grid of Europe and plunging the continent into anarchy.
Helping Golov and his daughter is the super yacht Achilles, which they are sailing on. Owned by billionaire Maxim Antonovich, the Achilles has an array of super-weapons, including lasers, mini torpedoes, and a rail gun. During the course of the story, Cabrillo and his ship Oregon will have several run-ins with the Achilles.
As with all books in the Oregon Files series, "The Emperor's Revenge" is loaded with fast-paced action with characters who are familiar to the reader. Highly recommended.
When a book, as so many seem to be nowadays I'm never sure who to blame for a poor effort. My rule of thumb, blame the one whose name appears in the larger font.
Worth reading, if it wasn't I would have put it aside but manager your expectations
