Reviews The Cult of Osiris (Nina Wilde & Eddie Chase, #5)

    I’m a big fan of this series. Action/adventure thrillers isn’t my usual genre but I do have a couple on my tbr and I tend to stick with the series if they have characters that I love rather than the story plot itself. And this is definitely the case for the Wilde/Chase series.I love the relationship between the Nina and Eddie. They bicker constantly like an old married couple despite the fact that this is the first book where they actually ar...

    Though I own the first five books in this series, this is the first one I've actually read simply because I needed it to complete a challenge. Unfortunately for Mr. McDermott, it comes directly on the tail of me reading two excellent thrillers last month - The Alexandria Link and The Six Sacred Stones which were far superior to this book. I love anything to do with archaeology especially Egyptian. However this book doesn't actually have any excav...

    After 5 books in this series (and another 4 or 5 I haven't gotten to yet), one would think that McDermott couldn't possibly keep the continuing story of Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase interesting or entertaining. After all, each novel is basically a rehash, retelling, retooled version of the previous entry, complete with basically the same scenarios, same one-liners, same escapes from near death, and, of course, the same over-the-top action and requi...

    I have not read any of Andy McDermott's work before, so I was unaware that this was a series of books. So I have came in when the characters are already down along the path of being developed.There are lots of explosions, lots of broken bones, lots of bad guys, the obligatory useless Hollywood action here (think Charlie's Angels, lots of references to Indy, Lara and and you have a book screaming out make me into a movie. To be honest, this book w...

    Into the fifth in the series, I’ve always enjoyed the Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase books, they tap into my love of Indiana Jones type stories of adventure, lost archaeological treasures and big action scenes. Picking up after the ending of the previous book, we find the newly married couple at a low point. After being falsely discredited over a discovery they found in the Covenant of Genesis, Eddie is working as a bodyguard for celebrities and Ni...

    I love this series. As long as you approach these books with the appropriate mindset, they are tons of fun and highly entertaining. This series is not high-brow literature - it's basically a Jason Statham/Bruce Willis/Sylvester Stallone action movie in book form and as long as you know that going in and are into that type of story this is a fun, easy-reading kick-ass adventure.Once again, Nina and Eddie end up in a death-defying adventure, this t...

    M: Is there anything you haven't blown up?N&E: Pyramids.M: Wanna go to Eygpt?After their last adventure, Nina has been disgraced and is out of work, while Eddie is playing bodyguard to entitled movie stars. Things are looking depressing until an undergraduate on a dig in Eygpt sees something she shouldn't have and turns to Nina for help. In no time at all, they are all running for their lives from a dangerous new cult. What secrets does the dig h...

    If some books are action movies, this one is almost a Michael Bay movie in terms of explosions and property damage and high-octane action. Fortunately, it's not as frenetic and plotless. And yes, I figured out the book was this way even before the author gratuitously crushed a Lamborghini.Normally, I try very hard not to jump into a series in the middle, but the topic of this one interested me and it didn't feel like it would matter that much. Ye...

    Another rip-roaring action-packed thriller in this ongoing series.For those following the trail, both Nina and Eddie are down on their luck in New York at the start of the book (but now married), having lost their jobs at the IHA after the plot of the last book. Eddie is working as a bodyguard/chauffeur to a movie-star which proves quite useful at some points in the plot, whilst Nina is wallowing in her self-pity until she's drawn into the plot o...

    3.5 stars A pretty good book. If you have read any of the others in the series than you know what you are getting. A half decent story and lots of action. This time Nina and Eddie are just scrapping by as Nina has been kicked out of the archeology company that she had been in. A girl working on a dig in Egypt sees that a side dig is going on and looks into it. What she finds sends the "bad" group after her to stop her from telling anybody. She ge...
