    I don't think this entry in the series was up to standards. The action seemed minimal and not the usual roller coaster ride I have come to expect. I felt the ending was flat and just sort of petered out. The kidnapping of the president's so not very interesting nor was it satisfying in the least. The story did tie up a long arc regarding the Triarri but that, too, felt flat. The author didn't go off on one of his racist rants against Muslims this time which was a welcome change.

However, after reading the preview of his next book at the end of this one, I'm not sure I will be continuing with the series. Racist rant doesn't begin to describe it. So very disappointing.

    I've read a few of James Acton books but not in order. This doesn't seem to matter too much as the author provides a lot of backstory. I found this one has a lot of 'backstory' involving Marco Polo alternating with present day and it almost felt like it could be 2 separate books merged into one. As usual there was lots of action and adventure and with entertaining main characters, it was a good read. I've read a few of James Acton books but not in order.

    3 1/2 stars While a good story, not quite what I expected bases on the reviews. While many use the method of switching between time periods and/or people, this one, to me, did it so much the plot lost continuity. I am also not a fan of using given names of a character one time and the family name the next especially when there are so many characters. While I enjoy action books using history meshed with current adventures, Cussler and Rollins do this so much better.

    I'm currently working my way through the Kennedy books (in the order he suggests) and have found them to be quite good and entertaining. This particular book has all the action that one would expect but with more details and back story than some of the previous books in this series.

    Consistent with the previous books. Easy reading. I'm not sure I want to keep reading the series as they are starting to feel like a TV series with a similar plot in each book. Not putting it down, just lose a bit of the passion after 8 books. Consistent with the previous books. Easy reading.

    Archaeologist James Acton with wealthy girlfriend Laura Palmer, also an archaeologist, are after crystal skulls. These novels are as fast paced and well-plotted as Dan Brown's and in much the same genre.

    Great tie in between Marco Polo and the present. You have to suspense belief just a little because so much action goes on , but it's fun. Great tie in between Marco Polo and the present. You have to suspense belief just a little because so much action goes on , but it's fun.

    Very enjoyable. This was the first book that I read by this author, and now want to go back and start at the beginning.

    Professor Acton does it again. J. Robert Kennedy never lets me down. Plenty of action with history in its fiber. A must read.

    A 700 year old artifact is the subject of a search by archaeologists James Acton and Laura Palmer. Hidden by Marco Polo at the request of Kublai Khan, Acton and Palmer must decipher old letters and documents to reveal the hiding place. While they are helped by the Triiari, a very old secret society, they are also opposed by a dissident sect of the same society. From Washington. DC, to Hamas controlled territory on the West Bank, to the Vatican, there is never ending action and a lot of bodies.

    Absolutely brilliant book. One of the best by Kennedy. To understand the characters and their past history I would recommend you start with the first and work your way through them. Only because as you go through the book it references past missions. the story is entirely in itself but I think I understood and enjoyed it more as I have a clear picture of them. there was little racism in this book too which I preferred, compared to some of the others. Still referencing religious wars and backgroun Absolutely brilliant book. One of the best by Kennedy.

Still referencing religious wars and background but not so hatful and one sided in his views. I like how Kane has been drafted into this book but only for a very small snippet just to remind us of him but not to use him in any great detail. kept him alive in my memory. can't wait to start number 9 :)

    A somewhat silly book that has modern-day detectives mixed up with crystal skulls from the time of Marco Polo (which produce huge energy releases when brought together).I will concede that the author has a vivid imagination but this story was just too far fetched to be enjoyable. The 'prose' in some parts seemed as if it was written by a grade 10 student in an English class just trying to put down lots of words to satisfy the teacher's minimum word count. Stay away from this one!

    Chosen for the "ugly cover" catagory I enjoyed the book. It is the first one by Mr. Kennedy I have read so it was obviously a more difficult, but far from impossible, story. There were obvious referals to people and events that would have been more meaningful with the previous books in mind. Chosen for the "ugly cover" catagory I enjoyed the book.

    Book #8 in the James Acton series. Short but sweet, fans of the series will be satisfied. The plot revisits the Crystal skulls from the first book in the series, and the usual cast of characters are all in it. There's also a subplot involving Marco Polo, but this book really needed to be longer. Not my favorite James Acton, but fun nonetheless. Book #8 in the James Acton series.
