Summary

A civilization stolen from the history books. A billionaire's obsession to unlock its secrets. A brotherhood determined to hide the truth. And time is running out.

Only a handful of people know what destroyed the ancient Atlanteans, whose very existence is a secret that they will kill to protect. Unfortunately, the very same catastrophe that destroyed that once proud civilization is drawing near once more. The question is, can marine biologist Sam Reilly discover the truth in time to prevent it?

Clever stories, but the narration..

I'm on a binge of these stories, but a break is in order. They're clever, if formulaic stories, which entertain. Well-researched, but I'm starting to struggle with the narrator. The voices don't match the characters, in my mind's eye, and the pigmy (spoiler) sounds distinctly Fu Manchurian! A small gripe and a wee break will gird the loins for the next adventure. Don't get me wrong - they're perfect escapism and I'd recommend them. I may have just overdosed!

An Excellent Adventure

This is Indiana Jones brought up to date and given a few extra twists. It's a non stop listen as the pace is relentless. The characters travel the world solving riddles and unfolding the mystery of Atlantis whilst double crossing villains give chase. The excellent narration adds to the enjoyment and sets just the right pace. Lots of twists and turns keep the listern guessing to the gripping conclusion.

Sam Reilly wins again

I was provided with a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

I am very grateful to Ashton at the publishing group as he was able to provide me with free copies of the Sam Reilly novels from 1 to 5 in exchange for my honest opinion. This means that I got to listen to each of the instalments in order and follow Sam's adventures right through.

As with the first two books The Last Airship and The Mahogany Ship, I was gripped from the start with this one. Like a lot of people who are interested in history, the idea of Atlantis intrigues me and I love to hear different ideas about where it was and what they had that made people remember them.

Christopher has managed to make Atlantis seem real to me, even though I know it is just fiction. When that happens you know the author you are reading has given you a great experience. The addition of kidnapping, the ancient architects, bad guys who may be good guys, good guys who may be bad guys, a lost tribe in Central Africa and the location of Atlantis being discovered where it was all leads to a fantastic thrill ride that I listened to in two sittings.

I've realised that I didn't mention the narrator in my previous review and I can remedy that now. David Gilmore reads all the Sam Reilly books I have. Narrators are incredibly important to audiobooks, they can ruin the story if they're bad, they can enhance the story if they're good, and if they're great (David you are this one) you barely notice that you are being read to, and you lose yourself in the story. I have great admiration for this narrator as I barely noticed his reading, I just enjoyed the whole book.

I've already downloaded book for and I intend to listen to that immediately.

This is awesome! Brilliant story and characters

From the first few seconds in we are thrown into a great action thriller. The pace never lets up and I really like the characters. From our mysterious Billionaire who has his own submarine and a newly acquired female archaeologist who has all the answers (or most of the them) to the puzzle that is Atlantis to Sam and Tom our cool male heroes and even the Phoenix Brotherhood. They are all great. The story roars along and takes us all over the world. I love the ideas the author brings to Atlantis and this lost civilisation that spanned the world but fell/was written out of history. It dips into past historical cover-ups of the artefacts and cities which is really great too. From start to finish I was entertained and swept along for the ride.

I'm looking forward to jumping into the next book because this one is brilliant.

Great!

Atlantis Stolen is a fun book to listen to. #4 in the Sam Reilly series, it ends in such a way that the reader expects a sequel. I'm looking forward to another by this author who has quickly become a favorite. Well done, Mr. Cartwright. You've thoroughly got me hooked on this amazing series!

Audio quality was great as usual.

James Bond meets Indiana Jones

Okay, so I like the storyline and the narrator does a great job but I couldn't finish this due to the content level, I got about an hour and a half into it. If made into a movie it would be an R level due to the number of f-bombs and sexual content (that's where the James Bond reference comes from). I could totally see this being a great story but for me personally I would need it cleaned up a bit. There's a pretty descriptive sex scene and I get how the author was trying to make the point that this male character is a narcissist and misogynistic pig but it was definitely a hard scene for me to get through and then all the f-bombs finally put the nail in it for me with this book. I am a James Bond and Indiana Jones can but they know when to close the door in those scenes and the language never gets that bad. I truly feel these books will appeal many who like both of those series but they are definitely geared towards adults.

Finding Atlantis

Action Greedy people and an ancient civilization. And it has a good narrator telling the tale. Hopefully Sam Reilly can save the day again so when you get a chance pick up a copy and find out if he did.

Best so far.

This is my fourth Sam Reilly book, and is my favorite so far, and I am looking forward to the next.. I have gotten used to the way reality can get stretched a little far and can now just enjoy the story. The characters are now familiar, along with their back stories. I like the way the story flows and the action never stops. I did have a feeling for a while that I must have missed a book, like a Sam Reilly 2.5 somewhere, because there were many references to something happening in the past, and I didn't remember anything about it. But don't worry, it all gets resolved in the end.

Narration was rock solid once again, and can now recognize the characters by their voices and accents. Well done.

Very very good

I found this audiobook to be a very very good listen. It has a great combination of mystery, suspense, danger and drama. The narrator does a wonderful job of bringing each character to life.

Putting the pieces together.

This was a good book to put the pieces together from the last two books and make more sense of the main characters. The story was very good BUT I am really getting tired of the "F" bombs. I listen in the car and at work so I cannot play this book due to the language that is completely unnecessary in the context of the story.

Amazing

I have always had a facination of atlantis. And this book just took my imagination to a whole new level. A very good story, kept me on the edge of my seat the whole book. Very hard to not listen to it all the time. These books keeps getting better and better,

Headlong adventure!

If James Bond, Ryder Haggard, Rafael Sabatini and Indiana Jones were reincarnated into a series, it would be this one. Completely unpredictable, yet everything hangs on familiar myths and legends. Plus no helpless females requiring rescue whatever the heroes think. Totally satisfying to watch the women stand toe to toe with the men and occasionally pull ahead of the male characters.

Do NOT listen to this at bedtime if you have work the morning. Do NOT listen to this if you think you might be interrupted. No pacing problems or long brooding introversion from this author. You'll be gasping for breath every time you think things are about to slow down because it will surprise you!

Half a star off for the narrator's female voices which are occasionally a little stiff, but it's so good, I didn't care. Half a star off for SPOILER ALERT!!! a rushed ending slotting you headlong into the next book. Irked me a little as I groped for my phone at 2AM (don't judge, I couldn't stop restarting the sleep timer) until I realized there were another fourteen books. Crisis averted, all is forgiven.

Each of these works as a stand alone. I found the series at The Mahogany Ship, the preceding book. There's enough in the books to just dive in anywhere and keep on. No smut, no gory detail despite the (eww!) voracious crocodiles, and did I mention the completely unpredictable storylines?! I'm totally binge-listening as fast as I can get the next book downloaded. Warning - you might find yourself sitting in your driveway with the car running and the A/C on so you can get to the end of a scene. Watch your gas gauge.
