Sintesi dell'editore

Steve Berry's short story finds an adventurer in a strange and forbidding land, in search of a long lost treasure, and very much in harm's way.

As a favor to enigmatic billionaire Henrik Thorvaldsen, Cassiopeia Vitt treks into Bulgaria's Rila mountains in search of a buried stash of exceedingly rare artifacts from a bygone civilization: the ancient tomb of a Thracian king. But when her presence is discovered by a shadowy group of Russians secretly mining the area, she needs a way out. Who to trust becomes the question, and her life depends on choosing the right option.

Don't waste a credit; so short, like a chapter

As much as I've come to love the works of Steve Berry, for the rich, in-depth historical perspective he chooses to plant his hypothetical mysteries. I felt terribly cheated with this few-minute "book". There is no depth, just a cheap, fast story of a relatively uneventful escape--with promises from the author to show more of the characters in his next book, "The Emperor's Tomb". I had read that first, and really only read this because of Scott Brick. He is the very best narrator! But, even he couldn't save this shallow little quickie. It really ought to be lumped in with "Emperor's Tomb" as another chapter; which it probably was to start with, only to be saved from the cutting room floor and marketed for separate sale. Berry's REAL books are all (so far) wonderful, giving a "being there" feeling to the history most of us have just touched on in school. They are painstakingly detailed and researched, and seamlessly blended with history. This, however, is an afterthought; absolutely not worth it!

Total Waste of Money-An advertisement

I was very disappointed in this "SHORT STORY". It was nothing more than an advertisement for The Emperors Tomb. If I had been in a book store I could have read this information on the jacket of the hardcover edition for free. I am really disappointed in the author and Audible for selling their advertising to the customers this way. Probably a bit more than jacket information, maybe a couple of pages from the first chapter. Won't do this again.

Too short.

A very nice teaser toward a future book, introducing concepts and characters. As always Brick is a masterful narrator and draws the listener in. I look forward to the full length book

Too Short

This was less of a "short story" and more of a prologue to another novel.

Short and sweet.

Sometimes I love a good short story that I can enjoy while folding laundry or running errands. I can't complain about the length of this story. It's complete and as usual Scott Brick's reading is fabulous. I'll be picking up the Emperor's Tomb. I wouldn't use a credit for something so short, but a few dollars out of pocket? Absolutely!

Worth a listen.

I haven't listened to anything by Steve Berry and bought it because I like the narrator. I am glad - I enjoyed the w ritting style quite a bit.
