Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Harry Turtledove has intrigued readers with such thought-provoking "what if..." scenarios as a conquered Elizabethan England in Ruled Britannia and a Japanese occupation of Hawaii in Days of Infamy and End of the Beginning. Now, in the first of a brand-new trilogy, he rewrites the history of the world with the existence of an eighth continent.Atlantis lies between Europe and the East Coast of Terranova. For many years, this land of opportunity lured dreamers from around the globe with its natural resources, offering a new beginning for those willing to brave the wonders of the unexplored land.

poor writing/boring reader

The writing is overly simple with little character development. The writer would have been better off slowing things down and putting more effort into colorful descriptions of the settings, developing the plot and the characters. Occasionaly the writer got lazy and used modern terms that were not in use at that time which was quite distracting. The reader used the same tone when going from one character to another which made for a very boring listen.

This was a fun book. Since the book steps forward in time at least twice, I wish in the audio version there was a distinct division here, such as "Book 1, Book 2, Book 3" No big deal, but it would make it easier to follow.

The characters were vivid and narration was excellent.
