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

    Golemon's Best To Date

    Being a fan of both Rollins and Berry, I find The Event series to be in much the same mold. Having finished his first three offerings, I've found Ancients to be Golemon's best effort yet. Much less "down time" between action, with the enemy being more realistic. No space monsters that swim in rock, or little hairless monkeys with gills. The typos are still a distraction, though. But, all in all, a good summer read. I'll try his next offerings as well.

    Best of the best

    The event group thrillers are some of the best works of fiction I have ever read. I just hope Mr Golemon continues to write about the group. I can't wait until the next one is released. As long as he keeps writing about them I will keep reading.

    Highly recommended check out all the Event series books

    Ancients is a story about a people living centuries in the past who had a magic that possibly could be used to save the modern world.

    I love the idea of Atlantis being an island of people who are so advanced that they can do more than our best genius' of today. Now that the world has turned into a WW III battlefield the only way it can be saved is by the Event Group working to find what saved the people of Ancient times and what did Atlantis do to loose it's fight to save itself.
