Product description

Product Description

One of the world's most legendary and elusive treasures, sought after for centuries. . .


An ancient mystery.
A Lost Treasure.
A Hidden City.
An impossible location.
An unimaginable adventure.


Included in Aztec and Mayan legends, Conquistadors had heard rumours of its existence when exploring the New World, but never found it.
During World War 2, Nazi inspired archaeologists were convinced they had pinpointed its location. They packed a U-Boat with supplies and set a course for the Amazon Jungle. They disappeared!
Many adventurers eager to claim the legendary gold as their own entered one of the most inhospitable places on earth, the Amazon Jungle. Most were never seen again!
And yet the exact location of El Dorado and its fantastic hoard of Mayan, Aztec and Inca treasure so many have dreamed of finding, remains a mystery. Any who may have stumbled upon it never returned to tell the tale.
It was as if someone, or something, was protecting it...


In 1925, Victorian explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett enters the Amazon Jungle to search for a Lost City. Like so many before him, he was never seen or heard from again. Until now!
When a message from the past is discovered washed up on an English beach, it reveals new information about the ill-fated 1925 expedition. A modern day expedition sets off to follow in the footsteps of Colonel Fawcett in an attempt to locate the Lost City and its legendary hoard of priceless treasure.


El Dorado Book 1 & 2 will take on a journey filled with danger to seek out and enter the fabled Lost City. A thrilling story of adventure and discovery that weaves together an exciting blend of fact and fiction linked to the legends surrounding El Dorado, the lost Fawcett expedition and the mysterious Amazonian Jungle.


Rumoured to be guarded by remote, mist-veiled mountains, the fabulous treasure hoard was hidden from the greedy clutches of Spanish conquistadors somewhere deep inside the unforgiving and mysterious Amazon jungle. As far as anyone knows, it is still there. Waiting to be discovered by those brave or foolhardy enough, to try their luck.



Reviews


"This is a terrific two book series set within the atmospherically described Amazon jungle. I could easily imagine myself tagging along with the adventurers."

"If you like reading Clive Cussler, Matthew Reilly, James Rollins or Michael Crichton, you will enjoy this action adventure from Ben Hammott."

" Has all the ingredients for an instant success: great plot, interesting characters, a large dose of mystery, impressive locations , unexpected twists and discoveries, deception and betrayal and even a touch of romance and a spattering of humor. This story will keep you entertained from beginning to end. Recommended for the permanent library of all action adventure readers."

"The Mysterious and Dangerous Amazon Jungle, Subterranean Rooms, Tunnels, Pyramids, Ancient Aliens, Nazis, Traps, Thrilling Escapes, Chases, Strange Creatures, Dangerous Enemies, a Lost City and Great Characters, are just a few ingredients that make this exciting adventure thriller a must read for fans of this genre." (NY.Post.book.reviews)


"From bestselling author Ben Hammott this action packed adventure takes you into the Amazon Jungle to follow in the footsteps of lost Victorian Explorer, Colonel Percy Fawcett. What we have here, in part, is an excellent dramatization of what may have happened to Fawcett and what he may have discovered in the unexplored regions of the Amazon. The well written plot is seldom predictable and some of the characters you think are safe, and will be alive by the time the book reaches its climax, are not. Sights and sounds of the Amazon are described well and help to set the atmospheric tone the explorers travel through. A thoroughly enjoyable adventure."

An exciting archaeological mystery thriller with flashbacks to Colonel Fawcett's 1925 Expedition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic adventure yarn with more twists than a bag of pretzels! 19 September 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyed both books in this series. The Lost City books contain all the elements that I look for in a good adventure yarn. From a base point of factual events concerning the disappearance of explorer/adventurer Col.Percy Fawcett, Mr. Hammott launches into a nonstop tale of an Amazonian search for a lost city. Included are an enjoyable cast of unlikely modern day heroes following clues found in a bottle washed ashore 80 years after being thrown into the water by a dying member of Fawcetts' expedition. Lost cities, treacherous villains, Nazis, beautiful Amazon warriors and an alien spaceship inside a pyramid- and that's just part of the story.

I thought the characters were fantastic and the way the author chose to give the reader backgrounds of specific parts of the book was extremely interesting and put altogether in the end. Lots of drama, action, and surprises to characters. I wish it would go on and on. It was fun to read and difficult to put down. One of my favorites.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great story, poor editing. 28 June 2016
By Lynn D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book has a fast paced, very interesting story. Based on discovered journal of Fawcett, it gives possible scenarios not in the journal. Nothing dull about it. Characters attempting to recreate the expedition in current day are very enjoyable with new subplots of their own. The manuscript, however, must never have been seen by a proof reader. The multitude of missing, extra & wrong words really destroy what could have been an exceptional book.
