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....

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.

Too tedious for me.

I get some will enjoy the ‘certain death’ at every turn, but not for me. Turned up the listening speed to reduce the tedium. Narration from Simon was excellent however.

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.

Really cheesy and unbelievable yet I was thoroughly entertained!

This felt like watching an Indian Jones film - non stop action throughout, utterly ridiculous and unbelievable yet I was totally engrossed! The constant sarcasm and humour didn’t work so well for me. Wonderfully performed though.
