THRILLER REVIEW: Agent Pendergast 16: The Obsidian Chamber - Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

Release Date: 01/12/16
Publisher: Head of Zeus


After a harrowing, otherworldly confrontation on the shores of Exmouth, Massachussetts, Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast is missing, presumed dead.

Sick with grief, Pendergast's ward, Constance, retreats to her chambers beneath the family mansion at 891 Riverside Drive -- only to be taken captive by a shadowy figure from the past.

Proctor, Pendergast's longtime bodyguard, springs to action, pursuing Constance's kidnapper through cities, across oceans, and into wastelands unknown.

BUT IN THIS WORLD, NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS And by the time Proctor discovers the truth, a terrifying mechanism has stirred -- and it may already be too late..


If you love a series that is deliciously dark then this thriller series by Douglas and Lincoln really will send a shiver down your spine one minute and hit you with a shot of adrenaline the next. The writing is addictive, has you reading each page carefully so that you don't miss anything NS wraps it all up with top notch characters that you just love to spend time with.

The fact that this is the 16th book in the series doesn't diminish the writing in any way and if anything helps give the reader a fuller flavour as characters return alongside new friends being introduced. All round a cracking read and one that I can't wait to see what comes next with,
