By New York Times best-selling author Bob Mayer, writing as Robert Doherty (author of the best-selling Area 51 series)
What if the Shadow that destroyed Atlantis 10,000 years ago, comes back to threaten our present world? A war beyond time. An enemy beyond space. A thriller beyond your wildest dreams.... Three areas on the Earth's surface defy explanation: the Bermuda Triangle, the Devil's Sea of Japan, and a small region of Cambodia. Inside these realms, planes have disappeared, ships have vanished, and, in Cambodia, an entire civilization has been lost, leaving behind Angkor Wat.
In 1628 BC, a volcano erupts, one that would become legend as the eruption that destroyed Minoan Civilization. But a small group of priestesses stand fast against the dark Shadow that precipitated the destruction.
In AD 79, the oracle of Delphi must join forces with the most fearsome gladiator from the arena of Pompeii to fight the Shadow that destroys Vesuvius. And the XV Legion is sent on a quest that causes it to disappear from the Roman Empire and into the fog of history.
In 1937, Amelia Earhart is on the most dangerous leg of her 'round-the-world flight, near the Devil's Sea. A dark Shadow rises in front of her and swallows her and her plane, never to be seen again. Until the present, when Eric Dane leads his team against the Shadow threatening our present world and unites with her.
In 1986, the Shadow appears inside of Chernobyl, sucking power from the reactors and causing disaster. And in the present, a Ring of Fire around the planet ignites, threatening the entire world.
Former Green Beret Eric Dane and the mysterious Sin Fen, a woman with powers he can't quite understand, must track the mystical crystal skulls that have baffled scientists, to use them as a weapon against the Shadow, and unite with the gladiator and oracle to make a last stand for mankind.
If you enjoyed Lost, you'll love this book and be amazed at the similarities in concept (although this book was published before Lost).
