From the Back Cover
For sixteen centuries the Order of Pythis has awaited the reappearance of the ancient oracle of sacred knowledge of Delphi. An earthquake, rending the earth beneath the ruins, has now heralded her return. Dorian Belecamus, a beautiful and bewitching archaeology professor, sees an opportunity to do more than dig into the past: This is her chance to seize control of her country's future--by becoming the Oracle of Delphi! And she's found just the man to help her consummate her scheme. He's brash, he's reckless, and he's fallen under her spell. His name: Indiana Jones.

Rob MacGregor really captured what I've always loved about Indy in the motion pictures.
Although he isn't quite the adventurer we all have come to know and love, he is only young at this point, that said, this book is well written and you can easily imagine this young lad becoming the one depicted by Harrison Ford in the movies of the future. (That is, future chronologically. Of course, they came out AFTER the film in real life)
So was there anything I disliked about this book?
No, not really.
However it wasn't perfect, that being why I'm giving it only 4 stars, but its a close 4.5 out of 5 star rating.
The pace is good, Rob doesn't linger on one subject for too long. Just enough for you to get the point of the situation without loosing interest and then swiftly moves the story along to the next plot point.
George Lucas himself had overseen some of the writing so it kept with the way of the films, though Rob was still given a great degree of Writing Freedom. Lucas did request Rob to remove a Sex Scene, which he did, to make the book more family friendly, but for some reason the following (spoiler) moment was still 'Family Friendly' enough:
(Spoiler) ### At one point, someone is shot in the face with a rifle and he details the bone fragments and brain pieces that can be seen where a characters face once was ### (Spoiler)
It's a decent read. Not too much is going on, I had expected a more, Raiders of the Lost Ark approach, with boulder chases and booby traps, but nothing like that was present. Despite that, the book was still decent and I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to any fans of the Films.

I loved the character development of Indy in this one, then the suspense and the drama as the plot unfolded. Definitely one of the better books in the series.Published on Oct. 15 1999 by James Crabtree (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I'm sorry.If I'd read this Indy book first,I might not have read the rest of the series.In my opinion,there is to much lovey-dovey stuff and bad language in this book. Read morePublished on April 24 1999
