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.…

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.
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.
