Praise for the Dane Maddock Adventures
“A fast-paced adventure with action to spare. Dane Maddock is a hero cut from the Dirk Pitt mold, and “Bones” Bonebrake is the best sidekick around. If you like your thrillers with a touch mystery and Biblical archaeology, Dourado is the book for you.” Megalith Book Reviews
With the thoroughly enjoyable way Mr. Wood has mixed speculative history with our modern day pursuit of truth, he has created a story that thrills and makes one think beyond the boundaries of mere fiction and enter the world of ‘why not’? Cibola is a worthy tale!” –David Lynn Golemon, Author of Ancients, Event, Legend, and Leviathan
“Ancient cave paintings? Cities of gold? Secret scrolls? Sign me up! Cibola is a twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and never lets go!” –Robert Masello, author of Bestiary and Blood and Ice
“Cibola by David Wood is a page-turning yarn blending high action, Biblical speculation, ancient secrets, and nasty creatures. Indiana Jones better watch his back!”–Jeremy Robinson, author of the Jack Sigler Adventures.
In Cibola, David Wood creates a tale evoking James Bond and Indiana Jones, bursting with action and intrigue. With mesmerizing treasures in beautiful locations, beautiful women and rugged heroes, mysticism and mystery, Wood spins a yarn that keeps the pages turning. –Alan Baxter, author of RealmShift and MageSign
“David Wood just might become the new master of the Biblical action-thriller.–Megalith Book Review
“Dane and Bones are back! Packed solid with action and witty dialogue, this rousing adventure takes a fresh look at one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century, David Wood delivers again with QUEST.”–Sean Ellis, author of Into the Black and Dark Trinity: Ascendant
“The escapades of Wood’s serial character Dane Maddock continue in high style with QUEST, an all-out blitzkrieg of a globe-trotting mystery-adventure that breaks from the action just long enough for a couple of laughs.” ~Rick Chesler, author of kiDNApped and Wired Kingdom
“Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. From the accessible writing to the wide-ranging plot to the main characters who don’t give up no matter how long the odds, Wood’s latest book, Quest, is a tremendous classic adventure. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop until the last mystery plays out in the final line.” –Edward G. Talbot, author of 2010: The Fifth World
