I usually trust reviewers...and this book is certainly receiving the reviews it deserves (for the most part). So I can't imagine what made me download..Show More » it! Was it a recommended audible book? It seems impossible...Alas, download I did. And it was terrible. At one point, I actually double-checked that I had not downloaded Book II by mistake (soooooo much time had gone by with no clear clue as to what the 'mystery' was about or what was really going on...or what could remotely connect all these widely disparate characters and events). I guess the 'promise' of that mystery must have been tempting (so the author gets one star for that), but after an hour or so on the SECOND downloaded half, I just stopped caring. Wish one of the other reviewers had a 'spoiler' and would tell me what (if anything) ended up happening. Did they all die? Did the world end? Meh. Will attempt to get my credit back on this one.
Narrator is great, and the story is fun to read and complex. A lot of reviewers have complained about some things not adding up but it is a great list..Show More »en and and interesting plot. I thoroughly enjoyed both this book and the first book.
In the Atlantis World, everything finally comes to a conclusion. The alien threat is revealed, and humanity is at the brink of destruction.
I..Show More » reviewed the previous two books, and while enjoying them, I didn't think they were super great. But this book was a welcome departure from the first two. The beginning is still a bit slow with boring stuff on Earth, but eventually the book delves fully into the history of the Atlanteans, who the great enemies are, and what the plan was from Ares, Kate, and Janus. It finally delves deeply into science fiction with space battles, ships, advanced races, and more. I even felt myself understanding and rooting for Ares and Dorian part of the time.
It was still a bit slow at times (mostly in the beginning parts) and a few characters were somewhat useless and unnecessary (Paul Brenner's "girlfriend").
Overall this was a really enjoyable ride and has a definite page-turner quality. Well worth the read (or listen).
For the audiobook, the narrator did a fine job and I didn't recognize any misses or problems.
NOTE: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
