Eons before the birth of the Roman Empire, there was a civilization dedicated to the sciences of Earth, sea, and sky. In the City of Light lived people who made dark plans to lay waste to their uncivilized neighbors using the very power of the planet itself. As the great science of their time was brought to bear on the invading hordes, hell was set loose on Earth. And the civilization of Atlantis disappeared in a suicidal storm of fire and water.…

Kept you wanting to hear the next line. I would come home and listen until I had to get up and continue on with my daily life. You know it's good when you are sorry it's over😓
a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
The event group series is a great serial which at times requires you to suspend reality...but that is part of fiction.
I think this has been my favorite Event Group book so far. From the depiction of how Atlantis originally fell and the world's transformation, to the battle between the Group and the Juliai Coalition ((Spelling?)) I really enjoyed the story. I only had a couple issues with the book. The big one was that, although the Characters are well written, there's no growth. All the main characters are the same as they have been since book one. Hopefully we'll see some movement on this in the later books. Aside from the few problems, I enjoyed that "The Frenchman" isn't the main obstacle for the Group. Especially with that abrupt, and ((in my opinion)) anticlimactic death of his wife, that I'm sure is going to affect his character in the future but I liked that we're not going straight into it. Having essentially the same one bad guy, even one as capable as Farboe, throughout the entire series would have been a little repetitive. Finally....That ending man...Where's book Four?
Good action/intrigue/history theory about what happened to Atlantis and where it's at now. Even a little romance thrown in. Something for everyone!
Definitely one of the the better books of the event group.
The action was exciting and a great for Atlantis believers.
The first two books in the series were okay; nothing great, but worth the time spent listening. However, I found Ancients to be confusing and, sorry to say, boring. It has taken me days to plod through it and I always have to go back and review the last chapter to try to figure out where I am in the book. The character development was almost nonexistent and the story itself was too convoluted to flow with any consistency.
While I will try the next book in the series, it is more because I am a devotee of series writing than am sold on this particular series. I can only hope this is just a temporary set-back.
While I know these are meant to be a form of distraction , the glaring inaccuracies in this book have almost ruined the series for me. Maybe I'm being picky but, it seemed like the author released a draft as a little time with a Special Operator, and there are many of us who would have been glad to share our knowledge, would have made this book much more believable. Helmets are made of Kevlar and laser designators don't work underground just to mention two of the many things the author didn't fact check. Having started with the last book though, I'll grudgingly get the next in the series.
