Christopher Golden º 9 Summary

Eds Drake’s help Sully’s old friend a world famous archaeologist has just been found murdered in Manhattan Dodging assassins Drake Sully and the dead man’s daughter Jada Hzujak race from New York to underground excavations in Egypt and Greece Their goal to unravel an ancient myth of alchemy look for three long lost labyrinths and find the astonishing discovery that got Jada’. UNCHARTED THE FOURTH LABYRINTH features a poor man s Indiana Jones and was written by a guy probably best known for a big stack of HELLBOY and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER tie ins With that in mind the book is exactly what you d expect EXACTLY what you d expectChristopher Golden does manage to capture some of that Indiana Jones flavor despite the book s overall sloppiness which I assume comes from it being rushed However he completely fails to do justice to the Nathan Drake character who comes across here as nothing than Generic Action Man I think Golden tried to portray him as being charming and intelligent but to me he came across as just the oppositeAnother thing is that whoever came up with the plot whether Golden himself or the Naughty Dog game company went WAY overboard in packing too much lore into a single story When Drake isn t busy solving one of Daedalus secret labyrinths he s off exploring Atlantis fighting off minotaurs learning the truth about alchemy or ensuring that the secret to mind control doesn t fall into the wrong hands all while staving off the occasional ninja attack As you might guess it gets to be a bit muchBut what really drags this book down is all the idiotic banter among the main characters Golden simply doesn t have an ear for humorous dialog as demonstrated in his BUFFY novels UNCHARTED THE FOURTH LABYRINTH is at its most enjoyable during the final few chapters when things have gotten so dire that the characters no longer have time for inane jokes

    Golden manages to capture the feel of the Uncharted video games faithfully but there are a few caveats It doesn't reference any of the previous games but merely drops you in the middle of this story with the expectation that if you're reading an Uncharted novel then you're already familiar with the characters As far as the main characters Nate and Sully you don't get much character development They stay pretty close to their ev
