The Emperor's Revenge is book eleven of The Oregon Files by Clive Cussler. Juan Cabrillo and his team were on a mission when he was told that the Corporation's money was gone. The readers of The Emperor's Revenge will continue to following Juan Cabrillo and his team to see how they got their money back.

At first, I was not sure about The Oregon Files series. However, when I finished the third book in this series, my thoughts about this series changed and I became to love reading books in this ser
The best Oregon Files novel since Plague Ship, The Emperor's Revenge is a long, complex, action-packed ride. The beginning, in which we see the stuff of conspiracy theories - did Napoleon really die in exile, or did someone stage it that way? - is classic Cussler, but then we get a veritable metric ton of insanely fast-paced action dotting the Mediterranean and the former Soviet Union. There's even a very welcome crossover appearance by Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala, who cross paths with Juan Cabri ...more

Another wonderful, action packed adventure for the Oregon files. Juan Cabrillo and his team respond to a massive 'robbery' at the main bank in Monaco. Where unfortunately Juan has the most of the Corporations' money deposited. Even Napoleon Bonaparte has a role in this mystery!

For those of you who truly enjoy Clive Cussler novels, this is one you do not want to miss out on. This is the eleventh in the "Oregon Files Adventures". I suppose because I am retired Navy; that I am drawn to all of these particular novels on the Oregon characters. Without giving away a lot of the plot (other than what has been provided on the write-up), it will provide you with history, action, adventure and mystery. Do not miss out on a truly great series.

Loved it!
Top class action, adventure and espionage with out-of-this world gadgets, cold war type bad guys, and heroic good guys, who believe risking their lives to save the global financial system is all in a days work.

Another entertaining and enjoyable book in the Oregon series by Clive Cussler! Non-stop action from start to the end.

Cussler and his writing partners are always good for a fast moving, entertaining tale. Good guys versus bad guys in the world of high technology. Nothing heavy here.

I've read all "The Oregon Files." A modern warship disguised as a tramp freighter slithering among the villains on the high seas.

The book opened up in the Sahara desert with Juan Cabrillo, Eddie and Link infiltrated into a terrorist group. The terrorists found a downed USAF Strategic Command plane from the Cold War with nuclear weapons aboard. No sooner has the team dealt with this problem, and then they find someone has stolen the corporation’s money that was in an offshore account. They find out they’re up against a skilled and cunning foe with a very sophisticated yacht with weaponry more advanced than that of the Oreg ...more

“The Emperor’s Revenge” by Cussler and Boyd Morrison (I almost said Boyd Scott; I’m getting my Cussler co-authors confused)…. I got a signed copy of this book as a present (love signed books, and Cussler was my favorite author growing up, so big thumping gracious heart for that present!)

I tried reading “Golden Buddha”, the first book in the Oregon series, but found it boring, poorly-written and… what was the other thing??? Boring, poorly-written, and…. Mmm…. I just felt like I was missing someth

This was a complete letdown. Along with #10 Piranha. These last two ghost writers have been absolutely useless. The quality of the writing and the stories themselves are noticeably lacking compared to the first 9 instalments. This is my favour series concept, so it was a shame to see what has been done to it

Eleventh in The Oregon Files series and revolving around The Corporation, a covert ops team sailing the world on a converted freighter full of hidden tricks.

This is the story which crosses with Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala in Malta during the warehouse shoot-out in The Pharaoh's Secret , 13.

My Take
I enjoyed this typical Cabrillo and The Corporation story with its terrifying and exhilarating action — especially the one where Zakharin reveals way too much!, undercover scenarios, rescues, escapes, a

I have read most, if not all, of The Oregon Files, but this is the first one which has been co-authored by Boyd Morrison. I am always a little sceptical about new partnerships, so this came as a pleasant surprise. The story flows, no perhaps that should be torrents, along in true Cussler style, but with an unexpected, yet welcome addition in that Mr Morrison obviously a sense of humour. I did find myself laughing occasionally, and that definitely enhanced the read.
Typical of Cussler there is a h

Fun book
I all honesty I found the book barely tolerable. Enjoying the previous novels of the series a lot I felt the author lacks any connection to the characters. And how should he? Morrison is building on characters fully fleshed out by Jack duBrul after taking over from Craig Dirgo, by now I don't believe that Clive Cussler has been doing anything for this book than providing his name.
The plot is ludicrous and lame and for the big showdown the Achilles is almost lackluster. I think I will borrow the

It doesn't take you long to guess who the "Emperor" is after Cussler's historical prologue which opens all of his books. From there the story enters the present day and you wonder "what did that have to do with what's happening now." That's just what Clive Cussler does well...blends the past with the present and presents a story that you just have to read more and more of.

This one is well written with lots of a variety of action. I especially enjoy the various crew members of the Oregon. Each on

Typical Cussler good writing, without cussing, etc. A computer Nerd would reason why a submarine taking Napoleon Blown-apart from St. Helen's in 1821 would evolve into a plan to steal all the money in Europe's banks, and put the Electrical Grid out of business for 3 months. Cussler didn't show up, but 2 of his Kurt Austin book series characters did. Racecars didn't really do anything for the "catch the bad guys" Mostly computer jargon giving this reader no clue, but lots of shoot 'em up.

I really enjoyed Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels, but I can't say that all the other's under his brand name are quite as good. They suffer from certain flaws that tend to repeat in just about every novel.

The heroes are all perfect, the best in the world at everything they do.
They have unlimited resources.
They have the latest, most amazing tech that can solve any problem.
There's no really big problems or setbacks. Especially on a personal level.
There's very little characterization or growth, eve

There's nothing hair-raising about this adventure.

Instead Clive Cussler's "The Emperor's Revenge" plods and plods until you just don't think it can plod anymore. Then it plods some more. An agonizing 451 pages of...not much.

There's some mild action and a few close calls as Juan Cabrillo and his team of for-hire good guys bounce hither and yon across Europe, mostly in search of recovering their own funds, stolen by a group of mastermind hackers in a scheme loosely tied to the demise and legacy of

This book restored my faith in Clive Cussler's ability to tell a good/great story.

This is another in the Oregon Files series, featuring Juan Cabrillo and his crew of the Oregon, a super modern ship, equipped with the latest in modern weaponry, disguised as a worn down freighter. Cabrillo is the head of "The Corporation," a private company contracted to do clandestine work for the U.S. Government.

This book starts with a story of Napoleon being kidnapped off St. Helena, where he was sent by the A

I recently read The Emperor’s Revenge, co authored by Clive Cussler and Boyd Morrison. The theme that Morrison and Cussler seem to convey is that it doesn’t matter how formidable the opponent, it matters how hard you fight.
The book is realistic fiction, and begins by introducing several characters. Juan Cabrillo, a man hired by a terrorist with seemingly different plans. He’s with pals Franklin Lincoln and Eddie Seng. We are also introduced to Henri Munier (Don’t get attached to him!), Sergey G

To be honest I didn't pay much attention to this. I listened to it on audio, and unfortunately the reader - some guy called Jeff Harding or something, a "New Englander" - made the experience a lot more unpleasant than it needed to be. The story itself was nothing special anyway, but first I must address the narrator. Many times a decent story has suffered from a poor choice of vocal narration, but none is worse, in my experience than those that are read by this guy. He also narrated Odd Thomas b ...more

It was okay. I'm not as big a fan of the Oregon crew as I am of Dirk Pitt so I knew going into this that I might be wasting my time. I wouldn't say it was a complete waste.....I mean, the ship battles were pretty cool. But overall I was either bored or exasperated the whole time reading. The ultimate baddie plot was a bit....confusing to me. The jokes were forced or fell flat. At one point a character quotes the movie Airplane!...and then mentions that the character was quoting that movie. It wa ...more

“If his submarine were caught on the surface in broad daylight, the mission to free Napoleon Bonaparte from exile would be over before it began. Delacroix lowered his spyglass and called down through the hatch. “Prepare to dive the boat!” Three men quickly lowered the sail in the gusting wind. With the bright sun at his back, Delacroix took one last look at the approaching frigate before ducking below and closing the copper hatch. His nostrils flared at the rank odor of fifteen men packed together inside the cramped quarters. “Did they spot us?” asked Yves Beaumont,” 1 likes
