Publisher's Summary

Following in the tradition of Clive Cussler and Matthew Reilly, Andy McDermott takes us on a rollercoaster ride in search of the legendary Atlantis. 

Archaeologist Nina Wilde believes she has found the location of the lost city of Atlantis, and now she wants the opportunity to prove her theory. Someone else though wants her dead! 

With the help of ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase and beautiful heiress Kari Frost, Nina faces a breakneck race against time around the world, pursued at every step by agents of the mysterious and murderous Brotherhood of Selasphoros. From the jungles of Brazil to the mountains of Tibet, from the streets of Manhattan to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, the hunt for Atlantis leads to a secret hidden for 11,000 years which in the wrong hands could destroy civilization as we know it....

Reader is great, story is a bit dull

I thought it lacked imagination. Atlantis was barely described in the book despite visiting near three times. Characters seemed to be used as plot devices in some parts. I thought the Kari development and end didn’t really match up. There were plot holes everywhere. Chase and stockman - was kind of a massive let down. I actually found myself rooting a bit for the frost foundation as the whole holier than thou routine from the hero’s was a bit bloody dull. How many times does that routine need to be done? It basically ripped on Dan browns novel which was a superior text in that regard. Some of it was a bit cringe. The narrator was excellent. I pushed myself to listen to the end of the book but it was a real effort as the story seemed to drag and was predictable. I think the author gave it a really good shot though and wasn’t the worst - I did, after all, listen to the end.

Action packed and thrilling

Wow, the action started immediately, and didn't stop until the end. The storyline was exciting and thrilling. Spoilt a little bit by the narrator saying mischieviouss instead of mischievous, a huge pet hate of mine. please read the spelling of the word!

I will read more from this author.

Fantasy, a bit too Indian Jones for my taste.

It started as a decent, if far fetched, thriller. For me it descended into kiddie fantasy especially with the supposed 11 thousand tear old "temple of doom" tricks. I finished it but will not read any more in the series.

a bit too Hollywood

I enjoyed it though it was almost a Hollywood screenplay.
Mostly predictable with a few flaws that could have been followed up on.
certainly worth a listen the narrator has a good delivery.

Great action story - irritating lead female

Fantastic Indiana Jones/Lara Croft/Da Vinci Code/Mission Impossible fashion, brilliantly narrated. But why oh why did Nina have to be such a whiney drip?

Atlantis at last

Well the story between Nina and Atlantis stems back to childhood, but with a team she plans to pick up where her parents started.
The balance between crime, history, murder and a touch of romance worked really well. Nina, Carrie and Chase make great roles, and you can’t help but love them all. I’m eager to find out which ancient stories they track down next. Indiana Jones meets sci-fi bond
