Ethan Gage
review 1: I really enjoy reading about Ethan Gage's adventures. The best thing I can say about them is that they are always different. The only common theme is that Ethan gets out of a lot of scrapes by pure dumb luck. Much better than reading a Dan Brown/Robert Langdon story, which I know is only somewhat comparable, there is no formula that is repeated book after book with William Dietrich. This time we get to revisit some old characters from the last book and even from the book before that. A totally new dynamic is introduced and we get to see Ethan try to settle down, in his mind anyway. Love the locations and the history, it feels like Ethan is actually there, making his way through history. Can't wait to read the next one!
review 2: Less epic in scale than o
... morether Ethan Gage novels, The Barbary Pirates is a tight little yarn that sees the protagonist in search of Archimedes's legendary burning mirror. Gage once again becomes entangled with the Egyptian Rite and many adventures (and misadventures) ensue. As per the formula, Gage gets the girl and the world is safe at the end of the novel, ready to be freshly jeopardized in the next edition. less

Better than the last one in the series. Quick reading and extremely lightweight but fun in any case.
It was recommended to me by an author I enjoy - but I just couldn't get into it.
An entertaining read. Gage's interactions with his son are especially cute.
Light adventure series.
