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....

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.

fantastically gripping

loved it start to finish, hoping there will be a second book. As the author left it wide open.

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.

Action packed

An action packed thriller. A bit long winded and unbelievable in a lot of places. A book that will take the listener into a world of adventure. A total escapism from the real world .

Best book series I’ve ever read

I’ve read and now listened to this book twice and I love it just as much as I did the first time. You will not be disappointed.

This series is by far the best I have found

This series is by far the best I have found when I started listening to this book I couldn't stop and so far every book has been the exact same way if they can follow the book closely this series would make excellent movies and I hope one day they will
