In 13000 BCE much of the world is united behind warriors like Herkulus and King Jason to fight the superpower Atlantis. When the combined might of the enemy began to win, the desperate rulers of the City of Light unleashed a secret weapon of mass destruction called the Wave. However, the ensuing earthquakes and more proved out of control in three minutes ten millennia of civilianization vanished when Atlantis the continent sunk into the sea and the face of the globe reengineered with radical changes like what is to become Spain breaking off completely from Africa. Over the thousands of years since the man-made cataclysm, civilization returned not quite to the Atlantis level of technology yet none learned from that pandemic devastation as many sought the now mythical weapon to use to gain global dominance. --- In the present, an earthquake and tsunami devastates North Korea the Kim government blames oceanic digging by the South Koreans as the cause. On the Iraq-Iran border, tank forces stand poised to fight when an earthquake destroies at least forty percent of both sides┬┐ forces. The American President worries that an unknown oligopoly has discovered a weapon that is causing earthquakes around the globe. He assigns his elite Event Group to prevent further destruction a million times worse than Hiroshima by finding the key to the ANCIENTS┬┐ weapon apparently being used by ruthless ambitious predators for global domination. --- The third Event Group thriller (see EVENT and LEGEND) is like its predecessors an over the stratosphere gripping thriller. The story line is fast-paced from the opening cautionary warning of a smug desperate ancient civilization useing a weapon of mass destruction causing pandemic destruction and never slows down. With twists galore including a final shocker, David Lynn Goleman keeps the events coming as the action never wanes for a paragraph. --- Harriet Klausner

    The story was great, however, very difficult reading because of the many, many grammatical and typographical errors.  Some sentences didn't even make sense and had to be reread to figure them out. The company that printed this book needs to do a better job.

    Good - not as good as previous event books

    Goes from the incredible to the impossible - he might as well have had the sun explode as well - his other event group books were a little over the top, but this one is really too far out - just too much to swallow!!! I'd pass on this one and hope the next one is a little more credible!

    Ancients

    Number three in an entertaining series. However, while reading this book I came to the conclusion that no proofreaders or editors ever read it before publication. Many errors. Example: 'surf' instead of 'serf'.
