Frederick Radcliff is a descendant of the family that founded Atlantis's first settlement, and his grandfather Victor led the army against England to win the nation's independence. But he is also a black slave, unable to prove his lineage, and forced to labor on a cotton plantation in the southern region of the country. Frederick feels the color of his skin shouldn't keep him from having the same freedoms his ancestors fought and died for. So he becomes the leader of a revolutionary army of slaves determined to free all of his brethren across Atlantis. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Roy | 12/31/2013

    " The third in Turtledove's Atlantis series. This novel explores race, and freedom using a slave rebellion as a backdrop. Slow in places, but well worth reading "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 8/3/2013

    " It's by Turtledove, what more do I need to say? Fantastic insight in to people as always. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary | 7/5/2013

    " Outstanding view of our own nations history. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe Collier | 5/20/2013

    " Turtledove is getting kind of boring, actually. How many different ways can he rehash the various wars of our history? I would be interested in reading more about Atlantis if it were more than simply a stand-in for colonial America. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russ Olsen | 11/6/2012

    " Time wasting alternative history nonsense. Yet I keep reading them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clay Davis | 10/23/2012

    " A good story about people fighting for their freedom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 10/9/2012

    " Continuing the Atlantis saga - - we have a full blown slave revolt with a hint of Spartacus and don't forget Hannibal's battle plan - while the ending is a little too neat for me, Turtledove did leave open lots of questions. Really liked the character development. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maksim | 4/21/2012

    " Rather good continuation of Atlantis series. A little slow at times, but still an enjoyable read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 redbees | 2/19/2012

    " Plodding, repetitive, points are sledgehammered home. Clumsy and trite. Interesting idea for a book /series, badly executed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 1/23/2012

    " A good read, starting off strong and finishing well. One of the better books in this this good series... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 10/30/2011

    " Continuing Turtledove's exploration of Atlantis, this time the slave question. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David R. | 8/20/2011

    " One of Turtledove's silliest books. The series (now at #3) has become a total mess. In this one, we are supposed to imagine that an ad hoc servile insurrection changes entire folkways after one battle. What is worse is the endless talking by uninteresting characters. I hope he end this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelvin | 7/18/2011

    " This was the third book of the trilogy. I liked the prior two a lot more. This book was an OK read but not great. Far from his best. Hence only 3 stars out of 5 from me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricrk patrick | 5/29/2011

    " excellent book. Gives a view of the terror the slaves were kept in to keep them under control and the terror the masters had of the revolt. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 5/7/2011

    " I didn't like it. Writing style is lifeless, characters are stock, story is like reading a boiler plate history. Waste of my time. If you know nothing of how people immigrate to a new unexplored land, it will give you a bland pasty taste. Robinson Crusoe is far superior. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 JoLene | 4/24/2011

    " Don't want to spoil anything so I will just suffice it to say that I didn't finish this book (although I did read most of it since I brought on a trip where I didn't have other choices) and I will not be continuing with the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggie | 3/27/2011

    " I couldn't work up the interest to finish it. I didnt hate it, just got too bored "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Danielle | 2/28/2011

    " I needed a bit more of a "grab". I wanted to really like this book, but the characters seemed very 1-D, and the storyline is very slow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 12/15/2010

    " First part was great, then he lost me as he changed generations. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tisha | 9/27/2010

    " Didn't finish. Was slow and boring
    "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kivette | 5/22/2010

    " BORING!!! I like alternate historical timeline books, but I could not get through this one. I only made it through half of the book. I was bored out of my mind. I can't imagine trying to listen to or read the whole series. "
