  • I got the sense that I was tuning into a graphic novel rather than a traditional book, and I had to stop listening after the initial hour or so. The way the fight scenes were portrayed felt juvenile and seemed like something that would appeal more to young boys. For instance, the protagonist avoids getting hurt because he's wearing "liquid body armor", but then it turns out the antagonist is also equipped with the same thing and it ends up being used against her. Maybe I'll give it another shot if I find myself in a situation where I don't have access to the internet, but hopefully that won't happen anytime soon.
  • This audiobook delves into ancient history with intriguing details, thanks to extensive research. However, the plot lacks believability. It presents a middle-aged society that possesses advanced knowledge of earth science, chemistry, magnetism, light, and electricity, enabling them to create futuristic technologies like holograms and instant death. These advancements remain unknown even in the present day. Surprisingly, the scholars who possess this knowledge hide it within a church located in Avignon, which remains lost for seven centuries. Eventually, it is discovered by a resourceful group of individuals who miraculously navigate through dangerous situations, reminiscent of "Raiders of the Lost Ark," without any casualties. This aspect feels overly cheesy. Additionally, the narrator's falsetto vocalization may become irksome for some listeners.
  • Tom Holland expresses astonishment at the ability of Grey and his team to even make plane reservations, let alone embark on a mission, given the numerous close calls they encounter and the highly unpleasant adversaries such as snotty enemies and Nazis. However, Holland mentions that the more recent books in the series are an improvement.
