Chakana by W. E. Lawrence Review


Chakana is a historical romance novel filled with action, adventure, suspense, and intrigue.

In 1939, before the start of World War II, James Fleming, the original British secret agent, races on a high-stakes chase to track down the ancient lost treasure of King Huascar of the Incas. He must recover it before the Nazis do or the whole world will be in imminent danger.

But this is no ordinary treasure hunt. The Incas have proven their cunning and intellect in not only how they hid their treasure, but how they protected it. Fleming joins forces in the remote ruins of Peru, South America with Kate Rhodes, a policewoman on leave from the United States, her archaeologist brother, Nick, and their college professor, Dr. Charlie. Together, they must decode, interpret the clues, and face the challenges of the Chakana on their hunt for the treasure.

If this wasn’t difficult enough, the group is hounded throughout their search of the ancient Sacred Valley by international artifact smugglers, familiar with the Chakana and working with the Nazis, who are determined to acquire the treasure to help finance their war effort. Intrigue, danger, suspense, action, adventure, and even romance abound in this brave band’s quest to save the free world.
 

Review

Adventure and treasure hunting wrapped up in one story!

Love Indiana Jones and National Treasure?  This is the story for you.  I am always fascinated with ancient treasure, and this story is just full of clues that contains twists that will keep you on your toes!

With the Nazis on their heels, James is trying to keep the treasure protected, while also trying to help Kate find her Brother Nick.  With an unexpected attraction between James and Kate, they will work together to unravel a mystery kept secret for centuries.

One clue leads to another clue...which leads to an amazing read.  Check this one out!

I can't reveal too much more than that....it would TOTALLY spoil the mysterious adventure!
