Summary

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).

Narration from Grandma's Basement.

What made the experience of listening to Atlantis: Devil's Sea the most enjoyable?

The story was a good continuation.

What didn’t you like about Martin Gollery’s performance?

EVERYTHING. It was like someone decided not to edit out the mistakes and left them in and Gollery would go back a few words and try again. He also reads in a horrible monotone that affects the characters and the flow of the story.

Any additional comments?

Except for the narrator, I thought that this was a very interesting story. The whole thing was very poorly affect by the bad narration. I has to put it at X1.5 speed to get through it; it makes it much more doable.

I didn't think the narration could get worse

I honestly didn't think the narration could get worse after Hayes, I was wrong. Gollery is simply terrible. He's obviously isn't reading ahead prior to the recording. This is evident by constant attempts to retry sentences. His staccato pronunciation of words is irritating beyond belief. It's actually making me want to fast forward at times.

Again, this is merely detracting from a BRILLIANT work by Mayer. It is a testament to his gripping writing that I am pushing through this narration to learn more of the fight against the Shadow.

I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to Jeffrey Kafer in the final three in the series. Such a great narrator.

Martin Gollery “Series Killer”

This is the second series that M. Gollery has killed for me (Area 51 was the first). His reading skills are just not up to Audible’s standards.
The editor needs to pay more attention as well. Lines are continually reread and often there are long dead air times.
This writing lacks a bit to be desired as well, with nothing new happening for the first 5 chapters. I could overlook that if the production was better.

Very Bad Narrator.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The Story is great, but this Narrator is so bad !!! He makes mistakes and then stops and re-says the line again. His intonation sounds like he is monotone and he is a machine reading the book.

How could the performance have been better?

I wish they would find someone who is good to read this story.

Any additional comments?

Like the story but the narration is so bad I want my money back.

OK story, AWEFUL performance

Would you try another book from Bob Mayer and Robert Doherty and/or Martin Gollery?

Martin Gollery should NEVER narrate, ever. How the heck did the robot voice from the answering machines from the '90 get the longest book in the series?

Would you be willing to try another book from Bob Mayer and Robert Doherty ? Why or why not?

I like the story line, I really do. I don't like Mayer's tendency to explain away God and religion. I would say this is the most frustrating thing about all his stories. That being said, it is otherwise a good story. So, yes.

What didn’t you like about Martin Gollery’s performance?

All of it. He is a terrible narrator, the worst I have ever heard.

awefull

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Atlantis: Devil's Sea?

every place over a thousand years in the past past the first 3 flashbacks

Any additional comments?

Did anyone listen to this book before it was put up for sale? The reader repeats himself every five minutes or so when he makes mistakes. Did anyone proof listen? just aweful

Great story terrible performance

Would you try another book from Bob Mayer and Robert Doherty and/or Martin Gollery?

I have enjoyed the series but Matin Gollery is the worst narrator I have listened to from any book on Audible.com

If you’ve listened to books by Bob Mayer and Robert Doherty before, how does this one compare?

Yes

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Martin Gollery?

J. C. Hayes

Do you think Atlantis: Devil's Sea needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes read it again with a different narrator

Good book but..........Narrator is dreadfull

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No my time was not well spent; while I enjoy the series the narrator is the worst that I have ever heard

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Martin Gollery?

Anyone but him would be an improvement.

Any additional comments?

I'm not sure why anyone would allow this amateur production to be sold! I really enjoy this series but am disappointed by the narrator. It would be different if this were a free book by an amateur but to actually sell this as professional production is insulting to the consumer. I will be requesting my money back on this book as I will have to purchase this book and find the time to read it because I keep zoning out because of the narrator

Overalla reasonable story. Audio Editing sucked!

Where does Atlantis: Devil's Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The story is pretty good. Though I think that things are changing how they work from book 1 until now. But still not too bad.

The one complaint I will make is that the audio editing was done fairly poorly. There are several times where the reader goes back and re-read words or phrases in, what seems to be, an attempt to improve the reading. But then the editor did not remove the first reading. So you hear the same things twice several times throughout the book. This needs to be resolved.
