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)

Great story, horrible reading

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Not in content

What was one of the most memorable moments of Atlantis?

The science was realistic when referenced and meshed well in timeline and fused well with the odd phenomenon addressed.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Really terrible. Perhaps the reader should stick to lectures or the like.

Did Atlantis inspire you to do anything?

Buy the series.

Any additional comments?

Please review the readings before you release.

Mayer does it again, sadly the narrator doesn't

Mayer keeps surprising me with another outstanding series. This is the perfect sibling series to Area 51. Different enough to make the work compelling and the story belts along.

Sadly the reading is let down by terrible narration. Hayes reads the story at a lethargic pace with no emphasis on urgency regardless of how chaotic the scene for the protagonists. All the strong female characters come across like little girls. It's painful at times.

Mayer is outstanding and I will push through the series regardless of the narration.

what narration should not sound like

In my opinion this is without doubt the worst narrated audio book i have listened too from Audible, it was so soul less, wooden and bland that it ruined the whole listening experience, dont the publishers listen to the
recording before being released.

As above

As the earlier review mentions, shocking narration.
Sounded like a drumk tramp on meth, reading a book into a microphone, from the bottom of a barrel.
Also, had to slow the speed down on the iPod, as was too fast.

Content itself was good, but painful to listen to.
