No doubt one of the worst books I have ever read. I have read many thrillers both good and bad and this one stands out as one of the worst. It is badly written which was a surprise considering the writer has a Masters in Journalism. The characters are unbelievably drawn and cartoonish, the plot almost nonexistent, and the idiotic pseudo-science beyond my endurance to give it a chance to involve me in the absurd storyline. Perhaps if it were better written my suspension of disbelief could have endured this poorly written take on the Atlantis myth.

The book started off okay, but when the C141 crashed in Antarctica and was described as a turbo prop I was dismayed. The final straw was the conventionally powered carrier USS Constellation being off the coast being described as nuclear powered. I figured then the guy did not do homework and quit reading.

Confusing with self-absorbed, shallow characters. Stupid plot with descriptions that were difficult to imagine.

If you like adventure with some "could we really find it in the future?" you will enjoy this book. It had me almost from the first page.

For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by anything having to do with the lost continent of Atlantis. Even if i see the word 'Atlantis' in the title I am immediately drawn to the book. That being said, it should not be too much of a surprise that I've picked up this book. I was not disappointed in my choice at all. This book is a FUN read with a capital 'f'. The hero of the book is Conrad Yeats, a wreckless archaeologist with a disregard for conventional rules. He is brought to Antarctica by his father Gen. Griffin Yeats (himself a renegade, boit for reasons of his own) to explore an amazing find deep in a fissure on Anarctica. They are joined by Sister Serena Serghetti, who is also know as 'Mother Earth' due to her environmental activism. Add the Russian army and an Egyptian colonel and his army, and you have a race (that goes at breakneck pace) to find the secrets of Atlantis. I did have a few problems with the book. The hero was just a tad bit too perfect (Chiseled features and body with long black hair tied back with a leather thong....come on!), the heroine a little too high strung, and a Genreal that is a little too greedy for his own purposes. I can over look that. I do wish there was a map of the authors vision of Atlantis, it would have made the book that much more fun for me to read. All in all I highly recommend this book. Take it to the beach or anywhere hot, you'll soon be feeling the chill of Antarctica.

This book tries to be a combination text book, tech thriller and fairy tale. It succeeds in nothing. The story line is hard to follow because there are so many useless facts thrown in that have little value except to impress the reader with the knowledge of the arthur. There is an endless parade of characters who exist to fill the pages. There is also an ample supply of descriptions of tunnels, chambers, waterfalls etc. Then Greanias wants the reader believe the absurd conclusion that the people of Atlantis were of such superior intelligence that they could control the position of the stars and planets by a remote control device. I find the only value of this book is for a class in Creative Writing to be used to demonstrate what NOT to do when writing a novel.

The author started with an interesting concept, but really did not flesh it out. I had no idea why half the characters were doing what they were doing and the end was disappointing. Also, the main character was terribly likeable.

Started as a B&N pick up with coffee, good enough that I bought and finished in a day. would be great for travel 2-3 day read at most. Found it very hard to put down and I would recommend. Liked enough to look at the other books in the series.

This by far, is the worst book I have ever read. The storyline is absurd, the characters are ridiculous, they should have added pictures so it could be classified as a comic book. Please don't waste your time or money with this one.
