Praise for David Wood

“Dane and Bones…. Together they’re unstoppable. Rip roaring action from start to finish. Wit and humor throughout. Just one question – how soon until the next one? Because I can’t wait.”
Graham Brown, author of Shadows of the Midnight Sun

“Let there be no confusion: David Wood is the next Clive Cussler. From the accessible writing to the wide-ranging plot to the main characters who don’t give up no matter how long the odds, Wood’s latest book, Quest, is a tremendous classic adventure. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop until the last mystery plays out in the final line.” –Edward G. Talbot, author of 2010: The Fifth World

With the thoroughly enjoyable way Mr. Wood has mixed speculative history  with our modern day pursuit of truth, he has created a story that  thrills and makes one think beyond the boundaries of mere fiction and  enter the world of ‘why not’?”  –David Lynn  Golemon, Author of Ancients, Event, Legend, and Leviathan

“Ancient cave paintings? Cities of gold? Secret scrolls? Sign me up!  Cibola is a twisty tale of adventure and intrigue that never lets up and  never lets go!” –Robert Masello, author of Bestiary and Blood and Ice 

“A page-turning yarn blending high action,  Biblical speculation, ancient secrets, and nasty creatures. Indiana  Jones better watch his back!”–Jeremy Robinson, author of the Jack Sigler Adventures.

“A well-written and highly entertaining Young Adult novella, in which the story moves at an almost ridiculous pace, yet remains grounded by the POV narrative of the everyman protagonist. Great dollops of black humour and some wonderful characterisation round out this extremely enjoyable romp. Definitely one to add to the private library. ” Necroscope
