Review: The Devil-Tree of El Dorado

The Devil-Tree of El Dorado
The Devil-Tree of El Dorado by Frank Aubrey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not a bad adventure tale, that holds up rather well considering it was written in the 19th century. Very reminiscent of Edgar Rice Burroughs or Robert Howard in style, with a little less forced exposition that was the norm for the era. A trio of adventurers explore the then-exotic and foreboding plateau of Roirama, to find the lost city of El Dorado. I know, it sounds like a mash-up of two stories, but it’s actually quite good.
