This is, no surprise, an adventure story regarding finding the lost civilization of Atlantis. The title pretty much lays that out. This is not an overly fanciful adventure with super technology or magic or the like. This takes a pretty realistic path to the end result. It also sets up a potential series of novels.
The story is reasonable and entertaining. Characters are likable and mostly pretty realistic in their characterization. Notable exception being Jaden, who is characterized as a smart-ass side kick. Your typical movie humorous side kick type of thing. Still, not bad.
The bad part of this is the narration.
It. Is. Horrible.
It seems as if it were being read by an AI and not a person.
Pronunciation is off in many cases.
If you ever have had an Amazon Echo read a Kindle book to you, then you know EXACTLY what this sounded like.
The editing was weird as well - like they recorded a first time table reading of the book. Some lines are partially repeated - not a standard repeat due to an interruption on your phone kind of repeat, you can tell this is in the actual recording.
Weirdly it will randomly, it seems, repeat the last 3 or 4 works immediately after saying them. It is infrequent to start with and more noticeable toward the last half of the book.
I want to like this book because it could be the start of a great series I think. But it needs a different narrator.
