I really don’t normally read this sort of thing. It’s all too Clive Cussleresque for me. The pseudohistorical adventure quests that mainly serve as a platform for dishing out as much action as possible. But…this one grabbed my attention with Genghis Khan. And the novella length made it seem like it might be worth checking out. And who knew…maybe the author was going to radically upturn every genre stereotype and deliver a quality so exceptional that it would completely change my mind about the g ...more

It's strange that 'The Lost Spear' came as part of the ARC offering under Entangled Publishing. But the blurb wasn't one that I could resist, so I took a chance on an archaeological thriller, not knowing whether it was actually part of an imprint primarily associated with romantic fiction.

The long and short of it is, 'The Lost Spear' would be a disappointment especially if you think this is one that falls under that category. The romance plot is thin and weak, with the barest hint (that's more t

A bit of Indiana Jones adventure for you! Eve has been trying to locate Khan's spear because it leads to his tomb. But, Zach thinks it's linked to terrorists and is trying to follow the leads. Although novella in length this packs a pretty good story in a small space. There's a little hint at romance, plenty of spies, some guns and lots of mystery. I requested the book from Netgalley because I felt like reading an exciting adventure, I got it. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

This is a good, short read. Good action and interesting characters kept me mostly engaged. I rue cliff-hangers, and if you do then either skip this or be ready to get the next one before you get this. Good otherwise.

I really appreciate the copy for review!!

After a number of years wandering the world in search of adventure, N.J. Croft finally settled on a farm in the mountains and now lives off-grid, growing almonds, drinking cold beer, taking in stray dogs, and writing stories where the stakes are huge and absolutely anything can happen.
