Publisher's Summary

A thrill-seeking Harvard linguistics professor and an ultrasecret branch of the Catholic Church go head-to-head in a race to uncover the secrets of the lost city of Atlantis. The ruins of the technologically advanced, eerily enigmatic ancient civilization promise their discoverer fame, fortune, and power...but hold earth-shattering secrets about the origin of man. 

While world-famous linguist and archaeologist, Thomas Lourds, is shooting a film that dramatizes his flamboyant life and scientific achievements, satellites spot impossibly ancient ruins along the Spanish coast. Lourds knows exactly what it means: the Lost Continent of Atlantis has been found. The race is on, and Lourds' challengers will do anything to get there first. 

Whoever controls the Lost Continent will control the world.

Atlantis-Still lost.

I'm still trying to like this book. The story is the type I usually enjoy, but the performer is so lacking in skill it makes it difficult for me to enjoy the storyline. He doesn't really have to switch to a falsetto to do a woman's lines, it is so off-putting.

Great read

If you like Dan Brown this book will be right up your alley. Very detail oriented to make you feel like you’re living the story. This is the first book I have read of his and I will continue to read his work!

Perfect Narrator for This Excellent Adventure

This is now one of my favorite books. There is nothing better than a great story with lots of action and solid characters, even though one really irritated me, but was believable. I seldom listen to a book a second time, but this is one I definitely will.

Difficult to get through

Narration was bad and difficult to listen to. Story was boring. Don't think I will get the 2nd book

Don't waste your time

I was wrong to download this book thinking it'd be something like the Da Vinci code of uncovering historical mysteries and secret societies.
Yet here I am on chapter 12 with nothing but less than a handful of old artifacts that no one has yet to decipher and nothing but shallow characters running around the continent with no purpose.
Its pages are full of dull filler dialogue, much spouted by our male protagonist Lourds, and female companion Leslie, both forgetable and unremarkable. The author seems to know this and constantly feels the need to pump up his protagonist by contrasting him to his "dumb blonde" female companion who is half his age and naive and, I quote, "has much to learn".

I tried so hard to give the book a chance. but after 12 chapters, my brain feels like it's rotting and my eyes are hurting from rolling them so much.

Phenomenal!

Great story! I was spellbound. Erik Davies was fabulous too. Great character accents! Listening to as many Charles Brokaw books as I can on Audible. If you write them they will read...

Thoughts

The overall concept not the story was incredibly interesting, but the historical/biblical portion wasn’t very well fleshed out. There was a lot of buildup and not a lot of payoff. The ending felt rushed not very well thought out.

Reader tries, but more times than not, fails.

I appreciate that the reader attempted to inject some life into the reading by using different voices for characters, but it just doesnt hit, and makes it hard to listen to sometimes. He often comes off more robotic than I imagine he would like, and his accents are...interesting.

Reader makes it hard to like

I'm trying really hard to like this, because the story is very engaging, but the reader is killing it for me. He sounds like he's reading it from a closet in a room where someone is trying to sleep, and his accents are horrible. His Italians sound Russian and his Arabs sound .......I don't know, but not middle-eastern. I heard him pronounce a name 3 different ways in a span of 5 minutes.... unless there are three guys named Farooq, Farock and Faroque. As this is only the first book in the series, I hope he gets better with time.
