Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An ancient massacre unveiled. A fictional monster come to life. A stunning conflagration on the high seas. In Valhalla Rising, #1 New York Times bestselling author Clive Cussler delivers a thrilling ride packed with adept plotting, high-tech conspiracies, and nonstop action...

It is July 2003. In the middle of its maiden voyage, the luxury cruise ship Emerald Dolphin suddenly catches fire and sinks. What caused it? Why didn't the fire control systems work? What was its connection to the revolutionary new engines powering the ship? NUMA special projects director Dirk Pitt races to rescue the passengers and investigate the disaster, but he has no idea of the bizarre events that are about to engulf him.

Before the next few weeks are over, Pitt will find himself confronted by an extraordinary series of monsters, both human and mechanical, modern and ancient. He will tread upon territory previously known only to legend. And, at the end of it all, though many lives will be lost, and many saved, it is Pitt's own life that will be changed forever...

Review:

"The master of action/adventure fiction strikes oil with this nonstop thriller....Cussler speeds and twists through the complex plot and hairbreadth escapes, giving the thriller the intensity and suspense of a NASCAR race." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[F]ull of all the adventurous plot elements that Cussler fans have grown to expect....This novel is great fun to read and will prove to be as popular as the rest of the series." Eric Robbins, Booklist

Review:

"Action-filled adventure...great fun." Library Journal

Synopsis:

"Clive Cussler has no equal," writes Publishers Weekly, and he proved it again with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his number-one bestselling Atlantis Found. Fans wanted to know how he could possibly top it—and the answer is Valhalla Rising.
