City of Gold – A Book Review


Finding the Inca’s lost City of Gold would be the discovery of a lifetime. But failing could mean her death… 

Archaeologist Matthew Connor and his friends Cal and Robyn are finally home after a dangerous retrieval expedition in India. While they succeeded in obtaining the priceless Pandu artifact they sought, it almost cost them their lives. Still, Matthew is ready for the next adventure. Yet when new intel surfaces indicating the possible location of the legendary City of Gold, Matthew is hesitant to embark on the quest.

Not only is the evidence questionable but it means looking for the lost city of Paititi far away from where other explorers have concentrated their efforts. As appealing as making the discovery would be, it’s just too risky. But when Cal’s girlfriend, Sophie, is abducted by Matthew’s old nemesis who is dead-set on acquiring the Pandu statue, Matthew may be forced into action. Saving Sophie’s life means either breaking into the Royal Ontario Museum to steal the relic or offering up something no one in his or her right mind can refuse–the City of Gold.

Now Matthew and his two closest friends have to find a city and a treasure that have been lost for centuries. And they only have seven days to do it. As they race against the clock, they quickly discover that the streets they seek aren’t actually paved with gold, but with blood.

I was always a fan of the very first Indiana Jones movie. As more were made, they got too hard to really believe in but Carolyn Arnold has restored my faith in that archaeology/mystery genre with her Matthew Connor Adventure Series. While I have long like Arnold’s Brandon Fisher FBI and Madison Knight books, I was hesitant that the love would carry over to an adventure series like this. I was so wrong. Arnold has all of the locations down. Her descriptions of the areas Connor and friends are in amazes me. They made me feel like I was there.

The characters in this new series are amazing. There is everything from romantic/sexual tension to deep friendships to family dynamics. All of this runs in the background of treasure hunting. I know that a true archaeologist would not call it treasure hunting but these are much more fascinating than the average dig.

 

I definitely recommend this book and am looking forward to the next in the series. I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
