Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Formed from a part of the North American continent that split off 85 million years ago and was eventually colonized by European explorers, the United States of Atlantis is now an independent country, though not all within it are free. Descended from one of the founding families, Frederick Radcliff nevertheless lives as a slave because of his dark skin. When the chance comes to unite both black and "copperskin" slaves to fight for their freedom, Radcliff takes on the role of leader. VERDICT The master of alternative history continues to find new ways to explore the many possible variants of American and world history. Meticulously researched, with realistic characters and careful attention to detail, the latest in the author's Atlantis series (Opening Atlantis: The United States of Atlantis) should please Turtledove's many fans.

    Review of' Liberating Atlantis'

    A fair interpretation of how history may have unfolded if continental drift and plate techtonics had occured differently, forming a fictitious continent in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, subsequently named Atlantis. The third book in series, predecessed by Opening Atlantis and The United States of Atlantis, follows the basic patern of the American Civil War, a war for freedom and the preservation of the Union, be it Atlantean or American.

    an enjoyable thought provoking alternate history.

    In The United States of Atlantis, Victor Radcliff led a revolt to liberate the island continent from its British masters (see The United States of Atlantis). During the revolt, Victor sired a son with a slave. However, decades after leading the USA to victory, his grandson from that improper union Frederick Radcliff is a well kept house slave owned by Henry and Clotilde Barford.

    An incident with his vile owner Clotilde has him kicked out of the house and away from his beloved Helen into the field. Already questioning how the Founding Fathers including his paternal grandfather omitted liberty for so many, Frederick angrily has had enough. He flees, but not long after his desertion, he leads a growing slave insurgency. The powerful slave owners try to force their hand picked politicians to bring the forces of the USA to put down the rebels. However the Atlantis Senate remains divided as the two lead Consuls, abolitionist Newton of the North and slave holder Stafford of the South paralyze the government with their disagreement re the growing revolt. With the Union in peril of splitting apart a reluctant Newton finally supports sending troops to put down the revolt.

    The third Atlantis tale (see Opening Atlantis) continues Harry Turtledove's sort of alternate American historical saga. The story line is filled with plenty of action, but is character driven. Stafford is Calhoun and Newton is Webster as they debate the merits of their respective position while a reluctant Radcliff leads the insurgency. All three are solid with strong beliefs that come across as genuine; ironically Radcliff with the most to gain and lose is the doubter of the trio. Fans will enjoy this deep look at the situation that led to the American Civil War and its aftermath through the lens of an enjoyable thought provoking alternate history.

    The worst book I have ever read of his.

    I am a long time fan of Harry Turtledove, but I found this book, Liberating Atlantis, the worst book I have ever read of his. It appeared to me that he just took his story board and combined each segment, as is, and published it.
    It had kernels of a good book but failed to full in the storyline. I intend to read Supervolcano: All Fall Down and truly hope it is not his new trend.

    Great conclusion

    As what happens many times when reading Turtledove, I was sad when the series ended. Highly recommended.
