I can really say that I didn't feel like I was reading a Dirk Pitt adventure with a younger, silver haired Dirk but I could actually see the differences and similarities between the two characters, they are similar enough that they can easily understand where the other is coming from but they are two very different men!

My favorite quote in the book is actually made by Dirk Pitt to Kurt and Joe: view spoiler [ "As I've gotten older I've learned a few things," he said. You and Joe are like one of my cars. Expensive, bad for the environment, and often a pain in the backside. But you're worth every penny. Graham Brown is an excellent choice to continue this series with Mr. Cussler and I do believe this is the best Kurt Austin adventure yet.

I can't wait to read the next one! Sep 02, Kevin Kazokas rated it liked it. This is a book about magnets, and all the power therein. Hardly do principles of superconducting, particle acceleration and inexplicably powerful compounds make for compelling reading. But add some stock paper-thin characters and a mildly interesting, albeit totally impossible, storyline and there's enough inertia to drag dear reader to the finish.

That's "Devil's Gate" -- a totally linear, non-texturized progression through pages of pseudo-scientific, vanilla-coated "meh. Sunken objects get magnetically pulled through a rocky entrance into a narrowing undersea corridor, with the channel's other end pinched off, leaving no hope for egress. Essentially, that resembles the experience of reading this Cussler "adventure. Cussler resorts to his usual dramatis personae, with a few non-compelling throw-ins, both butressed by cardboard-cutout bureaucrats and villains.

The characters inspire no reader investment whatsoever. The plot, of a deadly particle beam capable of bending across the globe and causing destruction to U. Things don't go off the rails enough to earn a slam-worthy review, and the ending actually ratchets up to a brisk, replenishing level, hence the three-star bailout. But several characters sort of drop off or are left dangling along the way, re-emerging at the end as mere afterthoughts. Again, nothing to sink your teeth into here or savor until the next book in the series. After this "experience," the reader may opt to keep the NUMA file cabinet closed.

Jan 22, JBradford rated it liked it. As a matter of fact, it is pretty darn good, considering that, as with all of Cussler's novels, it features an extraordinarily unlikely situation with wholly unbelievable action, based on science that just won't happen. But that has been true of all of Cussler's books, or books with which he is involved in these end-of-life pairings, and we still get the books and read them, because they're great fun to read.

I really don't know why Hollywood does not make films out of more of Cussler's books. Kurt Austin and his sidekick, Joe Zavala, just happen to be nearby when some bad guys start their plan of taking over the world--this time by stealing a mysterious cargo off a cargo ship off the Azores. Kurt leads the rescue effort and becomes marked by the bad guys as someone to dispose of.

Curious Beginnings - Critical Role - Campaign 2, Episode 1

You might think he is gong to become romantically involved with the widowed captain's wife that he rescues, but instead the romance blooms when an attractive Russian scientist, who happens to be a former Olympics skating star, shows up to investigate an implausible physical anomaly that the our heroes discover while they're throwing a submarine race in order to rescue someone else … only she does not seem all that interested in the actual anomaly.

Of course, we know that Kurt is going to save the world, but he has to go through some tough sledding in order to do it. Dec 04, Mark Muckerman rated it liked it. A favorite sweatshirt; a grilled cheese sandwich; the smell of warm towels fresh out of the dryer; any Cussler story from the Numa Files. Predictable and comforting are not necessarily equated to "bad". There has never been a Cussler book that doesn't have the ruggedly handsome hero, his ingenious sidekick of complementary ethnically diverse heritage, a textbook villain of the highest caliber of sinister, and the obligatory hottie who is immune to the charms of our hero.

But that's okay. As long A favorite sweatshirt; a grilled cheese sandwich; the smell of warm towels fresh out of the dryer; any Cussler story from the Numa Files. As long as the premise continues to be interesting and the storytelling solid, Cussler delivers like a chef in a solid 3 star restaurant: always good, filling, satisfying and never falling short of expectations. A good literary repast where the dress code is jeans and a shirt with a collar. If you're a Cussler fan, you'll continue to be pleased. If you're new to Cussler you'll be satisfied, but I'd suggest you go back to the early books first, and start with Raise the Titanic, or Sahara the book, not the wretched movie.

Devil's Gate (NUMA Files, #9) by Clive Cussler

I started reading about Dirk Pitt many years ago on a recommendation from Brent Erickson. I have been a fan every since and look forward to each and every book in any of the series. Like I started out. The bad guy is out to destroy or control the world and the hero of course, saves it! They are the ultimate good guys. Even though you many know what to expect it is entertaining getting there. I'll always be a Cussler fan. Jan 30, Linda rated it liked it. This was a fun Kurt Austin adventure!

It had been awhile since I've read one of his adventures and I enjoyed being back with the team watching them save the world. Aug 09, Simon rated it it was ok. Good God.

I am a fan of Dirk Pitt, when my hero is also in the story my joy doubled. From the blurb: A Japanese cargo ship cruises the eastern Atlantic near the Azores - when it bursts into flames.

Filled with the high-stakes suspense and boundless invention that are unique to Cussler, Devils Gate is one of the most thrilling novels yet from the grand master of adventure.

    The tanker which has the capacity to relay the death rays to Washington DC. A sentence giving hope that he will take care of Andras and save the country. A fitting climax to the story. More of my review with images. Feb 26, Scott rated it liked it. Clive Cussler can tell a story and put together a sentence better than most. This guy can tell a story and likely end up on a best-seller list. But lately, well The story takes readers around the world, to an international sub race, pirates, kidnapped scientists forced to work on a superweapon, awesome bad guy names like 'Andras the Knife'; and a directed-energy weapon threatening to destroy Washington.

    The imagery and detail were good and engaged the reader in the storyline. The characters seemed a bit superficial and it was hard to care imagine watching an above-average action movie with actors you don't know. The pacing was good and didn't lag very often. The detailed imagery was engaging. So, overall, if you like the genre, odds are you will like this book. However, if you enjoy Cussler's writing, as I did, you may notice a difference Consider the review more or less over. The following is simply one reader's observation of why I think this book lost stars.

    First off, I have nothing against ghostwriting or collaborating. It's useful and oftentimes helpful. I'm also not so obtuse that I think some politicians, celebrities, and hip-hop artists all have hidden literary talents enabling their first attempts at writing to rocket their books up the best-seller charts.

    Am I someone who wonders how a famous author who used to average one book every year or two is somehow able to put out a new title every two months? Well, not really Today's literary marketplace seems to have some growing trends that make it harder for readers to find their way. Between fan-fic stories that take an author's characters, settings, and even plotlines and then the branding and marketing that takes an author's name, there seems to be a lot of taking and much less giving.

    Add the cottage industry of ghost-writing famous Twitter feeds and we have a very shady landscape. Again, this is just one guy's opinion, but it boils down to exceeding or failing the reader's expectations. When I pick up a book about a character I know and like or a novel written by an author I enjoy, I have certain expectations. These trends are falling short. But, we control the impact. Publishers and authors are trying to make money. The more these things are accepted by readers, the more of it we'll see.

    Which brings me to He could spin a storyline better than many in this crowded genre. But lately, I've noticed that his stories have lost some of their appeal. He like so many other famous authors has fallen into the brand-name bog of selling his name as a brand rather than actually writing those lines and turns of phrase that drew me to him in the first place. I guess I should've known.

    I mean C'mon Andrews wrote her latest release? She died from breast cancer some 40 years ago - books are now written by a guy named Andrew Neiderman. Have you read the recent Robert Ludlum novel? He started writing again And then there's James Patterson who seems to be able to crank out a new novel every 8 weeks or so. An extreme example of this trend is Splinter Cell. Tom Clancy's So I assumed he wrote it - his name is larger than the title. Totally my fault. I didn't check the small gray font at the bottom of the cover that told me the author's real name, right? Why, you ask? Because Michaels didn't write it either.

    That's right. I liked the game. So, I thought the Splinter Cell books would be an ok indulgence for some good ol' military adventure stories. And, it was Clancy. How could I go wrong? Tom Clancy didn't write it. He created it David Michaels didn't write it, either. He doesn't exist. Raymond Benson wrote them Raymond Benson used the pseudonym Michaels. But then only wrote the first two in the series.

    Yet another writer took over and wrote under the original pseudonym. I even heard that the latest release was written by yet another writer. For those keeping score, that's 1, 2, 3, 4,
