The Emperor’s Revenge (The Oregon Files)


The Emperor’s Revenge (The Oregon Files)
The new Oregon Files adventure from the #1 New York Times–bestselling grand master of adventure.
 
Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon face their toughest challenge yet when a violent bank heist during the Monaco Grand Prix decimates the Corporation’s accounts. To get the money back, Juan joins forces with an old friend from his days in the CIA so they can track down a rogue hacker and a ruthless former Ukrainian naval officer. It is only after the hunt begins that the enormity of the plan comes into focus: the bank theft is just the first step in a plot that will result in the deaths of millions and bring the world’s economies to a standstill. The catalyst for the scheme? A stunning document stolen during Napoleon’s disastrous invasion of Russia. But two hundred years later, it may be the thing that brings Europe to its knees.

    Quick OverviewWhat follows is going to be a pretty long, detailed diatribe. I believe it advisable to understand as much as possible about a Kindle book when you are being asked to fork over nearly 15 dollars. Yet, I also believe it critical to avoid inclusion of spoilers and such that negates one’s desire to enter the world depicted by a work from an author and publisher that is intended to permit escape from the doldrums of everyday life. I trust readers of this review will not find the verbiage below to be excessive or contrary to their pursuit to find the ideal novel.First things first: Pricing for a product review is a legitimate issue, particularly for Kindle books. A price of $14.99 for a mass market work is a bit steep. The price, though, should not be the only consideration. I do believe it is unfair to trash any product in a review without first reading, viewing or using the item.The price nearly convinced me to forego purchasing The Emperor’s Revenge, which concludes a s…

    One of Clive Cussler’s best yet. Edge of the seat stuff from page 1 to the end….

    Clive Cussler and Boyd Morrison have put together a fast paced, action packed adventure story. There are several plot threads that for a while look completely disconnected, but eventually it’s revealed they’re all linked. The bad guys include the megalomaniac you expect in a Cussler story, but there is some background on how he came to be that way that lets you understand why. What I liked the best was Juan Cabrillo and his crew had to be very clever and inventive instead of just relying on the amazing technology of their ship. There was also a lot of double crossing and outright betrayal that keeps you guessing as to who you can trust. Also, at the risk of this being a spoiler, triumph for the good guys comes at high personal cost.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 writ…

    Very typical Cussler. If you’ve loved his past books, you’ll enjoy this one just as much. As always, a few action scenes that are a bit of a stretch in believability, but hey, this is just good clean fun. And to those who rated this one star due to price, hey, get over it. My Kindle estimated it to be a 6 1/2 hour read. That’s $2.30 per hour for great entertainment. Worth every penny at that price for this reader….

    The Emperor’s Revenge (The Oregon Files) Kindle Editionby Clive Cussler (Author), Boyd Morrison (Author)This is the 11th and I’m told last of the Oregon Files books. I hate to hear that since I truly enjoy the Oregon Files adventures.Written by Boyd Morrison under the Cussler umbrella, I find this book to be very well orchestrated. Morrison has a great grip on descriptive prose and character development. I’d actually venture out and say that his is the best version of these characters I’ve read so far. It’s a shame it may be the last. I wouldn’t mind reading another by him.I loved all the behind the scenes mechanics of all the double crosses and betrayals. Very well written. More than once I was left feeling, “WHAAAT?” Love that!Really good story telling. IF this is the last of the Oregon Files…I’m glad it went out on a great note!…

    Awesome Read! 99+ Rating! History buffs like a good story, this book gives it all. It’s great for summer on the beach and or on a rainy day! Bravo! Overall liked this book tremendously….

    Hey, it’s Clive Cussler for heaven’s sake. It’s good, fast and interesting. It’s his formula and it works. No surprises, the good guys win, but it’s how they win that is the story. The crime is neat and the archaeological mystery is cool.Except for the expense, it was 4 stars!…

    I’ve read every book in the series and all have been quite well written. This is no exception, however some parts seemed a little more far fetched than most in the past. None-the-less, I’d give it high recommendations as a read. For those of you that I have seen giving this book a one star rating because of it’s cost, I must say that such an act is nothing but juvenile when you have the free choice to purchase the book….or not….
