The indefatigable Bob Mayer, writing as Robert Doherty here, presents us with another sci-fi potboiler, loaded with military techno jargon and plenty of action. Mayer has a knack for spinning imaginative, larger than life tales that are fast-paced, for the most part. While this isn't on the level of the Area 51 series, it does have its thrills.

He touches on three mysterious regions of the world, one of which has long puzzled the most brilliant minds of the past couple generations, and how he weaves these regions into the mythology of the overall plot is somewhat brilliant. An interdimensional war has been raging for centuries, and a transdimensional race bent on exploiting the resources of other worlds finds their way to Earth, and bizarre events begin to occur. The intrigue builds at a steady pace and readers will be drawn into the web of mystery surrounding the sudden reappearance of ships and soldiers that have been missing since famous past wars, and the one man among them who holds the knowledge that can save the world.

Compelling stuff. But though he does a good job of blending reality with his far fetched sci-fi elements, one still needs to suspend disbelief in order to swallow this morsel. Barring that, it's a fun read and a wild ride.

I started reading a series that is just about as compelling and well written as the Atlantis series, but it goes at an even faster clip, being tighter and more action packed overall. If you like Atlantis, you'll definitely enjoy that one, called the Crisis Trilogy (the first book is called The Crisis Artifact, the second is The Chaos Pendulum). Reading Atlantis, I couldn't help but dwell on portions of the first two books in that series, and I plan on rereading them once the trilogy is complete. I'm a huge fan of Mayer's stuff, but I'm always looking for other lesser known sci-fi series that can hold my interest and keep me wanting more.

Fix This Series!

It is a great series, but it was poorly translated to ereaders!! The author should be horrified, I mean "Atlantis" is spelled wrong on the first page! Incorrect spelling and mistakes everywhere!
