Cibola by David Wood

Another Home Run Adventure Novel

4.5 out of 5 stars

Cibola introduces us to Jade Ihara (a staple in later books) and it didn’t go the way that I expected it to. Leave it to Wood to write me a story (especially since I’d read further books in this series) that just blew my mind when it came to Jade. This book did revolve around Jade quite a bit but it was still definitely the Dane and Bones show.

Their back and forth banter and ability to play off of each other in any situation really make these books for me.  They always crack me up and Cibola was no different.

The story (and legend) in this was awesome.  I’ve heard of this one but the way that Wood writes it out.  The people and organizations that he picks to be the antagonist are so topical it’s ridiculous (even years after this was written and recorded).

If you have enjoyed any of the other Dane Maddock stories or if you’re just a fan of Adventure novels – Cibola will definitely be a winner for you.

Jeffrey Kafer is the perfect voice for this series – I know that I’ve listened to quite a few since these original books came out, but Kafer just crushes it.  He’s able to voice Dane and Bones in just the perfect way.  Especially the way that they play off each other.
