    Indiana Jones meets Titus Crow This is pretty much the basics you need to understand about Matthew Davenport s Andrew Doran novels Andrew Doran is a two fisted adventurer archaelogist who travels the globe looking for artifacts which might be used against humanity by cultists or Nazis Particularly Nazis The books are straight forward, serious about their subject matter, and not too different from the Pulps which they draw inspiration The premise of this volume is Andrew Doran has been summ Indiana Jones meets Titus Crow This is pretty much the basics you need to understand about Matthew Davenport s Andrew Doran novels Andrew Doran is a two fisted adventurer archaelogist who travels the globe looking for artifacts which might be used against humanity by cultists or Nazis Particularly Nazis The books are straight forward, serious about their subject matter, and not too different from the Pulps which they draw inspiration The premise of this volume is Andrew Doran has been summoned back to Miskatonic University by its Dean in order to recover the Necronomicon It s been stolen by the Third Reich and they re going to use it to take over the world of course M Bison Andrew Doran makes a B line for neutral territory, reaches France, joins up with the French Resistance, and then heads to Berlin in order to face down the Ghostoppo sadly, not their real name H.P Lovecraft s work was rooted in a time of Doc Savage, the Shadow, and Conan the Barbarian with Andrew Doran s work drawing heavily from those time periods Unfortunately, the work suffers a little for the fact Andrew isn t nearly as over the top as those individuals He s closer to Lovecraft s own protagonists in, two fisted hero or not, he has a subdued scholarly personality which isintrospective than not Andrew Doran isn t without his flaws, he s arrogant and self righteous, which blinds him to the dangers of the people around him I prefer this to the flawless heroes of the Pulp days and it s part of the reason why Indiana Jones is a superior movie protagonist to The Phantom or Rocketeer He s also, not to put too fine a point on it, a bit of a lech and all too eager to seduce whatever woman finds their way into his adventuress usually without much success I was very interested in the world building which showed a world where the Nazis, cultists, and American institutions were all feuding over the supernatural One thing I give Matthew Davenport points on is the fact he had the Cult of Yig working against the Nazis I like this kind of factionalism and would have been interested in seeingevil cults working against the Nazis and vice versa Cthulhu s worshipers, after all, tend to be among the people which Hitler wasn t terribly fond of I was also a big fan of the Olivia character While the beautiful French Resistance fighter is something which has been done in other works, she has a twist here which surprised me I was quite interested in what she was really up to until the final revelation I think Matthew Davenport has a talent for femme fatales and hope we ll seeof them in his upcoming works I also liked the supporting character of Leo who is quite entertaining in his unabashed jealousy as well as resentment of Andrew Does the book have flaws A few The villains seem a tad underdeveloped Why are the Nazis trying to raise Cthulhu Do they think they can control him What does the traitor get out of this I wasn t quite sure because his explanation seemed rather confused There s also a few minor grammatical errors which were only mild distractions In conclusion, if you like a Pulpy Masks of Nyarlathotep esque book then this is probably the story for you.8.5 10

    The Statement of Andrew Doran by Matthew Davenport Dr Andrew Doran is an anthropologist and a trouble shooter The Nazis have stolen a powerful book, the Necronomicon, from the Miskatonic University and they are almost certainly planning wreckage and mayhem with it His mission is to recapture the book Along the way, there will be creatures of Void, temptations, the undead, and the French Resistance Which will be his undoing Andrew Doran was an intriguing character to follow around At first The Statement of Andrew Doran by Matthew Davenport Dr Andrew Doran is an anthropologist and a trouble shooter The Nazis have stolen a powerful book, the Necronomicon, from the Miskatonic University and they are almost certainly planning wreckage and mayhem with it His mission is to recapture the book Along the way, there will be creatures of Void, temptations, the undead, and the French Resistance Which will be his undoing Andrew Doran was an intriguing character to follow around At first he comes off as a little stuffy and scholarly but then we see what he sees creatures from the Void I loved all the Lovecraftian stuff going on in this book, much of it centered around our main character The Fishmen were particularly creepy Obviously the fact that Andrew has been exposed to these types of things for sometime has made his outlook on life a little jaded I really like that about him because he is about to get tossed from the relatively safe USA to the heart of Germany in search of a super evil book.There is only 1 female character, Olivia, and if there was another female, she was in passing and I can t recall if she had a name Obviously, I would have likedfemale characters since the ladies make up 50% of the population Olivia herself is OK She s a total sexkitten scrumptious to look at, and the sexual object for a good chunk of her time on the page Yet she isn t totally useless She doesn t scream or faint too often and she gets to fire a gun and successfully run away Still,could have been done with her character.The action scenes are well balanced with quieter moments where Andrew is reflecting on circumstances Of course he has to worry about the Nazis, but then there are also the plans of the Traum Cult that stole the Necronomicon Toss is concerns about being sold out by one of his boon companions, and Andrew has quite a lot on his mind Overall, it is a solid start to the series the mix of Lovecraftian creepy, action, and bigger picture save my soul stuff is great.The Narration Shaun Toole had absolutely awesome voices for the creepy Fishmen I was really impressed with how he got that underwater gurgly voice and still be understandable His German and French accents felt forced While I could appreciate his effort, they didn t work for me and definitely could use some improvement That said, he was the perfect voice for Andrew Doran, being a mix of scholarly skepticism and decisive action

    I had a friend recommend this author as someone to watch After listening to this, I wholeheartedly agree In a landscape filled with Dresden Files clones, someone willing to look at urban fantasylike Brian Lumley is a refreshing change of pace Moving the story back to WW2 era Europe helps give the story a flavor all its own.Andrew Doran is an Archaeologist, a minor mage and former instructor at Misketonic University He is called in by the university s Dean, since it seems the English tr I had a friend recommend this author as someone to watch After listening to this, I wholeheartedly agree In a landscape filled with Dresden Files clones, someone willing to look at urban fantasylike Brian Lumley is a refreshing change of pace Moving the story back to WW2 era Europe helps give the story a flavor all its own.Andrew Doran is an Archaeologist, a minor mage and former instructor at Misketonic University He is called in by the university s Dean, since it seems the English translation of the Necronomicon has been stolen by the Nazis and taken back to Germany to have its secrets unlocked by the Thule Society Well, as much as Andrew hates the Dean, he knows that those evil spells in the hands of madmen bent on world conquest is bad Traveling to Nazi occupied France, Andrew is connected up with some members of the French Resistance, Including their beautiful leader They escape the Nazis in France to travel to Switzerland, where they can find a source who can point them to the Necronomicon s location What they find is a twisted nightmare that almost kills them, although they do find the information they need They are captured by the Germans, though, and are brought into Germany in chains However, you cant keep a hero down, and in a scene reminiscent of the truck chase and fight scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark, they manage to escape, and make their way to Berlin where the book is being kept What follows after they arrive is such a wild scene of chaos, dark magic, harrowing chases, necromantic rituals and discovery about the true nature of his ally The ending sets upbooks in the series, but it is a stand alone A very satisfying ending with a great twist you won s see coming.I was impressed with the world building in this book It is obvious the author researched the era thoroughly, and is also familiar with Lovecraft s Cthulhu mythos The setting is very natural, and you get a real sense of being right in the thick of the action, In a WW2 era Europe The hopelessness and despair, the suspicion and terror they lived through, as well as the otherworldly threats, really give it a palpable sense of tension and menace.The characters are top notch, with Andrew Doran being conflicted about his own power, and the accessibility of powers better left unknown by man His allies are well fleshed out and described, and are believable in both their motivations and actions The villains are especially fun, reminding me most of the Nazi s from the aforementioned Raiders of the Lost Ark We know what their motivations are, and its very easy to loathe them So, good job with the villains as well, even the surprise villain, who shall remain nameless.All in all, I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a change of pace from the Dresden clones Its a great combo of Urban fantasy and a period thriller I am very excited to see where the next book goes As far as narration, Shaun Toole is effective He really nails the main character, but did seem to struggle a bit with accents That being said, the narration was smooth, and it is very listenable I wouldn t let a minor quibble keep you from listening to it Again, I highly recommend this book
