    1. Note, July 6, 2014: I edited this just now to correct a minor typo.Being a little-known author myself, I have a lively appreciation of how difficult it is to get one's work noticed in a glutted book market without a major advertising budget; and I have a soft spot for New Pulp. So, when I stumbled on author Percival Constantine's free e-book versions of a couple of his action-adventure novels, I thought there was a good enough chance I'd like them to risk investing a bit of time, and hopefully [...]

    2. Well, what can I say, I didn't quite finish this one, but I did get up to the middle of chapter 17. The story and the narration were okay, but it just didn't quite hold my attention long enough for me to finish it. Maybe one day I'll come back to it. I didn't give it a star rating since I didn't finish it.I do wish to thank the author, narrator, and Audiobookblast for the opportunity to give this audio a try!

    3. *Pulp Warning* All of my e-reading skews towards the pulpy side of the prose spectrum. As such, my reviews are pulp skewed. Reader beware :) *Pulp Warning*Overall: 4 stars.The Myth Hunter is the pilot episode for what could be a very strong pulp series. It's a cinematic piece of modern tomb raiding e-pulp that moves along at a cracking pace. It is unapolegetically pulp. But it would hope to cut back on the exposition, add some more unique elements and give the characters more depth if the rest o [...]

    4. I got this book for free on . Normally the free reads are not all that great. So this book was a pleasant surprise. Even better, a female protagonist rivaling Indiana Jones. I had fun reading this book. It steps into paranormal territory, but is still immensely readable. Great start to a new series.

    5. "The Lost Continent (The Myth Hunter)" takes off like a rocket-propelled grenade. While combing the Caribbean wilds for an ancient tablet, myth hunter Elisa Hill is attacked by mercenaries. She survives, only to then have the valuable tablet stolen by a cocky competitor named Lucas Davalos. And for the balance of the book, Elisa will chase Davalos and others around the world in order to recover the tablet (which holds the powerful secrets of the Lost Tribe of Naa'cal).With plenty of pulse-poundi [...]

    6. Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, Gabriel Hunt, Sydney Fox, Annja Creed please welcome Elisa Hill to the ranks of adventuring archaeologists. Percival Constantine has created a unique character. Elisa Hill is a second generation Myth Hunter, who started hunting for money but had a change of heart and now hunts to add to human knowledge. This background gives her access and connections to those on both sides of the myth hunting community.In this adventure, Elisa along with her mentor Max Finch is search [...]

    7. OH, NO HE DIDN'T! I was all prepared to fight by Asami's side as she faced a enemy far stronger than her. Asami is a fox shifter changeling on vacation in Japan. Then she heard a man implying that he saw a white as snow skinned woman gliding on the ski trail wearing only a Japanese kimono! Asami turned away choosing not get involved, but she turned around knowing that he friend Elisa Hill would never let humans get hurt, but I WANT MORE MORE!

    8. Much as with his Infernum books, this is not a series to take too seriously. It's firmly in the pulp vein with improbably weapons, ancient death traps, and one-note antagonists. The protagonist and her antagonists are all simple characters thrown into the mix and the adventure travels down a straight line to the predictable conclusion. Everyone wields exotic weapons, but their unique properties seldom make a difference. To give an example, at one point a scimitar is drawn and the description giv [...]

    9. The Lost Continent: Book One of The Myth Hunter Series by Percival ConstantineElisa Hill is a myth hunter, an adventurer who seeks out the truth behind the legends of the past, artifacts and places that contain some otherworldly power. Her parents were also Myth Hunters, and it was their dream to find the lost continent of Lemuria; sometimes shortened to simply Mu. On a location in the Caribbean, Elisha discovers a stone tablet that is “The Lost Keystone of the Naa'cal”; a powerful race that [...]

    10. An action adventure story with a touch of the supernatural. Elisa Hill is a myth hunter, an archaeologist who is searching for some ancient tablets that will lead her to the lost continent of Lemuria. Of course, as in any good adventure, she encounters adversaries, challenges and dangers along the way. Some what reminiscent of Tomb Raider/Indiana Jones this story holds no great surprises. Having said that, it is still a quick, entertaining read and the inclusion of a little supernatural, in the [...]

    11. First, I enjoyed it. Nice characters and the plot was interesting enough. But I found that every dilemma was resolved quite too easily and that the characters were never in real mortal danger. It would have helped raise the tension a bit. And the ending was so abrupt that it felt as though I had skipped a few chapters. When they finally get to their goal destination, it is over in less that a few pages, that was quite a deception, I wanted to explore that location a lot more. I believe the autho [...]

    12. Great start to an amazing seriesI found about this series from the author newsletter I am subscribed to.I am a sucker for mythology and anything remotely related to mythology. This is a perfect series with that setup. I liked those Lara Croft movies a d this reminds me of that. This is like adventure combined with mythology set in present time. I liked the Indian touch to it because I am from India :-)I have downloaded the next in the series already. This book is a fast pace read.

    13. A very easy and enjoyable read. And it is excellent if you are looking for something between Lara Croft and the Librarian. Although the details on weaponry are extensive, other details are a bit lacking. Fortunately, this does not ruin the story. Another thing that bother me a little is that the dialog felt a bit forced in places, but for the length of the book it is more than acceptable. Overall it has its drawbacks, but it is a relaxing read with a nice and fast story-line.

    14. Involving the lost continent of Lemuria, there are multiple agents seeking to locate it for a wide variety of reasons. The female heroine is master of many of the Eastern fighting arts.
