(Reviewed by Jeyran Main)
Plato Wyngard and the Valley of the Immortals is a thriller fiction story, written about Plato Wyngard. He is in search of answers to his father’s death; instead, he becomes stuck in the Vietnam War trying to locate four ancient relics in order to find the Jade Cup.
The power of the Cup provides immortality. The drug Lord and the Guild of Wolves are also trying to find this Cup and use it for its purposes. Although, neither the time, setting nor the genre of the book comes close to the mummy story, I just could not help myself but to remember it or compare it to that plot.
I thoroughly enjoyed the action-packed scene after scene with this adventure book. It truly was an enjoyment throughout simply because the flow and the connectivity of the story had been well put together. The literary standard was admirable.
I believe what makes this book interesting was its character development. Plato and his partner, Luther were drafted splendidly. The characters were relatable and since Plato was also seeking closure over his father, it made the story to have an emotional edge rather than it being just an action venture.
I recommend this book to people that like to read on the Vietnam War and also enjoy thriller fiction stories.
