    1. Is it cheesy? Like a deep pan pizza.Still it is engaging and the lore is right there and interesting I keep threatening to crack a textbook and find out a little more about ancient civilisations because I keep hearing about them here. Like Axom for instance. If you like Sci-Fi it is worth a try.

    2. Exhilarating!LOVE the story line! Well developed characters, the plots thicken and I can't put this series down! Narration is very good. The author's expertise is weaving interesting historical facts with fiction- aliens !

    3. This was the fourth book in the Area 51 series by Robert Doherty (which is a pen name of writer Bob Mayer). I've read the previous three books, and like them, I enjoyed reading this. It's a pretty easy to read, action-oriented story that moves along. As with any long series, you'll have books that are really setting up greater action later in the Series, and that's what I felt this one was when I finished. It has it's own quest, but that quest is obviously just a small piece of the overall matte [...]

    4. It's been several months since I've read the third book in the Area 51 series, but it was quite easy to pick up the baton in this fourth book. Mayer has an easy-reading writing style that carries you along quickly through the story. There is plenty of action, characterization, and description, but not too much when it's not needed.The Sphinx opens in the mid-1800s in Egypt, where an explorer, Burton, is seeking knowledge, and he wants to find out about the Sphinx. In current times, another explo [...]

    5. After my somewhat lukewarm reaction to the first three books of this series, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The balance of character, plot, and setting was much improved and the whole novel fairly hummed along. I especially enjoyed the sections involving the character of Mualama as he follows in the footsteps of one of the greatest real world explorer/adventurers of all time, Sir Richard Francis Burton. Perhaps it is my genuine interest in that great personage that assisted my overall p [...]

    6. The series is awesome. There's everything my soul ever wanted :) Ancient artifacts, UFOs, mysterious events, strange objects, danger, the world on the brink of annihilation - and lots of action! And inside all that, a small group of people who have no one to trust but themselves, people with high morals (of course :)) and incredible courage who (as it is in every popular thriller/sci-fi) are doing their best to save the day. Thumbs up! I love the change of locations - from the pyramids of Egypt [...]

    7. Second verse; same as the first. Book four was the last I read in this series. It's not like the author jumped the shark or anything. Its just that the characters were no longer interesting, not developed at all during series. The plot line of aliens on earth had already been done pretty well in prior books in the series and the author was just stretching the material at this point.Nothing really bad about the book, just nothing really good either. I got off the train at this stop. Thanks for th [...]

    8. A tense and exciting installment in the series. Again the main characters are strong, the dialogue is mostly on point (there are a few "as you know" type exchanges that don't quite feel natural), and the action is exciting. My biggest complaint is the redundancy of information that is repeated from book to book, but I'm reading these all back to back and not spread out over a pre- decade like they were written so it can be somewhat forgiven. The loving descriptions of military gear porn are back [...]

    9. I enjoyed this book quite a bit, really liked the new character of Mualama. Very cool to spend some time in Egypt and the pyramids and sphinx. I'm not quite sure why new characters always have to be introduced, I'd be more than happy to just stay with Lisa and Mike. But, at least in this case, Mualama was a good addition and his quest was intriguing (not always the case in previous books). I will say the ending definitely made me want to continue on to the next book in the series, The Grail.

    10. Aliens or alien-human hybrids are threatening to use a long-abandoned soviet space-based nuclear weapon to attack the United States unless the folks at Area 51 provide them a "key" hidden on Earth long ago. Unfortunately, the Area 51 folks don't have the key and don't know where it is - but they have 48 hours to find it. The book follows the adventures of the Area 51 team in searching the planet for this alien artifact!

    11. I must say this was the best of book of the series so far. There were still some edit/spelling mistakes for some reason more abundant that I am used to seeing in books. There were some interesting theories in this book. I thought they are somewhat plausible even. I do recommend reading the first 3 books first to have the most understanding of what is going on with all the characters.I've already started on the next book. I just had to know what would happen next.

    12. Another good book of the series. This is the middle book of the series and reads like a middle book. This doesn't have an exact ending, this is a set up novel for the books that come next. A lot of characters in this novel, much more than the previous four. Lots of changing scenes as we go from character to character. It is a good book, but moves around a lot. I had to refer back several times to try and make sure I knew who the author was talking about.

    13. The third book was a decent read, but this one made reading it worth it. I very much liked how they kept the story fresh with great plot twists and the addition of Mualama, his discoveries, the Russian aspect of the story, and fact that we as readers still haven't had the whole alien background story revealed even now has me pretty antsy to open up the fifth book

    14. Best in the Series So FarWith the introduction of Professor Mualama, yet another interesting character, this edition took on a historical Indiana Jones perspective that I loved. As the story switched from one character to another, I couldn't decide which subplot I liked best. Well done!

    15. A fun read. I love the 'Ancient Astronaut' theories woven into the reality of this novel. The author does write military style fiction also, and this novel reads that way. Too many tech terms and dry, monotonous descriptions of weaponry. THE SPHINX ends with a cliffhanger of George R.R. Martin proportions, which totally rocks in my opinion.

    16. This one was pretty entertaining in general, but I don't think I will continue the series at this point. It's just really starting to feel like nothing is happening in the overall "aliens are coming" storyline.

    17. This book is not as good as the three prior, but I still enjoy the on going story. It appeared to either be written in a different way or just simply isn't as gripping. I found myself wandering off quite frequently and considering how much I liked the 3 before, this surprised me.

    18. If you're a big fan of this series, by all means proceed and be happy. If however you are as of yet undecided, flee like the wind. My advice, go pick up some old Tom Clancy or Clive Cussler to scratch that itch.

    19. It was adventure-filled, but I didn't stay awake for most of it. It was worth the read, but i wouldn't recommend it.

    20. Nice story, and well written. Really made me want to read the next one until I had every book on the shelf :)

    21. While I'm a fan of the genre, I can't say the same for this book. This one had a hard time keeping me enthralled.

    22. The story in the series could have progressed a little more, but overall a good read. I do hate the fact that it ended in a cliff hanger, I guess I will have to more the next book up in my queue.
