Publisher's summary

A book by New York Times best-selling author Bob Mayer, writing as Robert Doherty (author of the best-selling Area 51 series). Over 1,000,000 copies sold! Amazon Hot 100 in print. Amazon Top 10 in Thriller.

What if the Shadow that destroyed Atlantis 10,000 years ago, comes back to threaten our present world?

A war beyond time. An enemy beyond space. A thriller beyond your wildest dreams. Three areas on the Earth's surface defy explanation: the Bermuda Triangle, the Devil's Sea of Japan, and a small region of Cambodia. Inside these realms, planes have disappeared, ships have vanished, and, in Cambodia, an entire civilization has been lost leaving behind Angkor Wat.

In 1945, Training Flight 19 disappears in the Bermuda Triangle.

In 1963, the USS Thresher, a nuclear submarine, is lost under unusual circumstances, part of a secret government investigation into mysterious gates. Near the end of of the Vietnam War, Green Beret Eric Dane led a team of operatives deep into Cambodia and encountered a strange fog near the legendary city of Angkor Kol Ker. His entire team disappears, attacked by strange creatures out of the fog. Only Dane survives to return.

Now a plane goes down. In the same area Dane lost his team. He's called back. To find out who is the darkness behind these gates to our planet. What does this Shadow force want? It is a threat that will take on the world's greatest military forces and defeat them. A power that will overwhelm our science and technology. A merciless enemy that will lead Dane -and the whole planet - into the final desperate battle for survival.

If you enjoyed Lost, you'll love this book and be amazed at the similarities in concept (although this book was originally published before Lost).

Critic reviews

"Spellbinding! Will keep you on the edge of your seat. Call it techno-thriller, call it science fiction, call it just terrific story-telling." (Terry Brooks, New York Times best-selling author of the Shannara series and Star Wars Phantom Menace)

Good Story, but weak narration

Would you consider the audio edition of Atlantis to be better than the print version?

Even though I have not read the print version, the narration is poor enough to be distracting. Therefore I can only imagine the print version would be better.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of J. C. Hayes?

Robert Petkoff or John Glover

Any additional comments?

It was a fun, escapist story that does a good job of weaving disparate threads together. Nothing profound or life changing, just a fun adventure story that you can enjoy while washing dishes or doing yard work.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
