Overview

Deep beneath the ancient city of Jerusalem lies a secret that knows no bounds, devastating enough to reach across time. History’s greatest spy story begins here.

For a millennium, Jerusalem’s Temple Mount has been at the center of war and death. There’s never been a time when blood wasn’t spilled upon this ancient, sacred site. Flash forward to present-day Jerusalem, where 35-year-old Israeli counterterrorism agent Sam Deker has just thwarted the most recent act of violence—an attempt by radical Palestinians to blow up the Dome of the Rock mosque and pin the blame on right-wing Orthodox Jews. The threat, however, is a diversion. Deker himself is the real target. He is captured and taken to neighboring Jordan, where he is tortured because of his deep knowledge of Israel’s most closely guarded state secret.

Deker escapes with his comrade Uri Elezar, making it all the way to the border, only to be taken down at the banks of the Jordan River. This time, however, Deker wakes up in the middle of the ancient Israelite army on the eve of its historic siege of Jericho. Deker doesn’t know if he is dead, in some torture-induced psychosis, or really back in time. But General Bin-Nun has declared a colossal holy war, and he’s sending Deker and Elezar on a dangerous mission to spy on the Promised Land in advance of the invasion.

For Deker, it’s his only hope to escape this genocidal hell. Then he finds himself in the arms of a beautiful enemy named Rahab, caught in a web of deadly betrayal, as he struggles to unlock the truth, secure Israel’s future and his own, and save the twenty-first century from The Promised War.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Once again Thomas Greanias takes the Atlantis mythology and ties it to events stripped from today's headlines. Lightning-paced, dagger-sharp, and brilliantly executed, THE ATLANTIS REVELATION made me gasp out loud." —James Rollins

"THE ATLANTIS REVELATION is a giddily-paced, rollicking, globe-spanning tale of adventure, discovery and derring-do that pulled me in from the very first page. It's rare to find a tale as well researched as it is entertaining, and this is it. Best of all, it is pure fun. Highly recommended!" —Christopher Reich

“A pedal-to-the-metal thriller that combines good, old-fashioned suspense with throat-grabbing twists. Just the right blend of science, myth, history, and action. Marvelous.” –Steve Berry

“THE ATLANTIS REVELATION is fast, fascinating, and far too hard to put down. Don't expect to come up for air until the very last page! Thomas Greanias is the king of high-octane adventure.” –Brad Thor

"This is an extremely fast-paced novel.... An exciting adventure novel very much in the James Rollins and Matthew Reilly mold." –Booklist

"RAISING ATLANTIS is a wonderfully honed cliffhanger—an outrageous adventure with a wild dose of the supernatural. A fun read from start to finish." —Clive Cussler

"A remarkable first novel. RAISING ATLANTIS grabs hold of you from the first page and pulls you into an astonishing world of scientific fact and fiction, suspense, and good old-fashioned adventure. Thomas Greanias is a superb writer who knows how to tell a tale with style and substance. Thoroughly entertaining." —Nelson DeMille

After enjoying Thomas Greanias Atlantis series, I was excited to dive into The Promised War. Since it is only 200 pages, it was a quick read, but I believe Thomas Greanias could have expanded on his Deker character and given us a little more excitement. I am hoping this is a prelude to part 2. There is a little activity when Deker wakes up in the past; which is easy to follow and doesn't get the reader confused with unnecessary filler information. Perhaps Thomas was trying to get us to relate more to the religious factors? Instead of a light brushing, Thomas should just dive right in and give us an adventure to sink our teeth into.

Interesting premise, but shallow plot development and even weaker character analysis. I would have give zero stars if the online rating permitted. I learned a valuable lesson to first preview a sample of an ebook by an unknown author before purchasing.

Poorly conceived, poorly written and truly unbelievable. On top of that the author's obsession with male sexual anatomy and circumcision was disturbing. Truly the author should seek help and the publisher should be ashamed for publishing such slop. I wull never read another piece of garbage from this clown again
