Satellites have spotted impossibly ancient ruins along the Spanish coast. World-famous linguist and archaeologist Thomas Lourds knows this could mean only one thing: The Lost Continent of Atlantis has been found. Walking away from a documentary glorifying his legendary life and achievements, he charges across oceans and continents to confirm this stunning belief.
 
But he is not alone. Lourds must battle a secretive and brutal society hidden deep within the Vatican hierarchy; a vicious cult that believes the secrets of Atlantis will destroy the Church's very foundation.

Locating the Lost Continent's hidden entrance requires a mysterious map and Lourds's unique command of archaic languages. A series of encrypted artifacts holds the key to this otherwise indecipherable puzzle, and Lourds plunges headlong into a race to find the ancient relics—each containing an arcane instruction that will lead Lourds both to other clues and into bloody struggles . . . and, at last, to Atlantis itself.

Listener Opinions

    " Wow. This book...let's just say I was happily satisfied with the equality of historical events mixed with personal relationships. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 2/15/2014

    " I enjoyed this book, though it is not quite Dan Brown or Clive Cussler. Don't get me wrong, this book is well-written in about eveery sense of the word, and the storyline is right up there with the others. The only thing that I found lacking is that the story just didn't "feel" real. But the characterizations, the plot, the story, everything else was excellent. While everything was good, it just felt like he was trying too hard to one-up Dan Brown. He had the Vatican, the rogue cardinal, the few Swiss Guards that followed, and some big historical secret that the church was trying to cover up. I thing I would have enjoyed more if he had just stayed with the modern, toned-down Indiana Jones with a mystery than trying (too hard) to mix that with Robert Langdon. "

    " What a letdown. I had such high hopes for this book, and the promising plot simply gave way to mediocre, one-dimensional characters. How disappointing. Normally I save a reread all my books, but this one's going to Goodwill. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/6/2014

    " kind of a same old story, it was kind of a disappointment. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shelly Bretheim | 2/3/2014

    " Good part of this is book is that it is a fast read, bad part is I didn't care at all! I love this genre and am always looking for new authors,but I don't believe I will read anything else. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexandria Darcy | 2/2/2014

    " I read this book because I'm on a little bit of an Atlantis kick right now. It wasn't brilliantly written, but it has been compared to The DaVinci Code, so if you enjoyed that book, you'll probably like this one. The adventure is fast-paced, and it was fun to read the puzzle put itself together. It was a very plot-driven novel. I, however, am more of a character person. The main character was very well thought out, but I didn't like either of the female characters. So if you read this, read it for the story, not for the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/21/2014

    " I liked it. He was not as good as Dan Brown with the clues and intrigue but it was fun and I'm going to read the Lucifer Code too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Qetus | 1/15/2014

    " Atlantis ... the everlasting mystery! I love this version actually, find it quite interesting, exciting, and well written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Scott | 11/23/2013

    " corny... but a fun, if forgettable read. I thought that the studliness of Mr. Lourds was kinda juvenile and off-putting, but it's an Atlantis story. I'm not getting my panties in a bunch. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brenda | 11/5/2013

    " I thought this book was trying too hard to be like the DaVinci Code. The main character was a linguist (similar to an expert on codes) who was sucked into an adventure. It wasn't bad enough to quit reading and it picked up a little at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April Mobley | 9/13/2013

    " I really enjoyed reading this book. It was well written and held my attention. The only problem I had with it was the ending. It was not as near as stimulating as the rest of the book. Not near up to Dan Brown standards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 8/27/2013

    " A good fast paced romp. Similar to James Rollins/Dan Brown. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gordon | 8/21/2013

    " Very entertaining mystery. This guy does Dan Brown's style better than Dan Brown could ever dream of doing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andreanjoroge | 8/9/2013

    " i think it is an awesome book which needs to be read by more people and they should love it to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 7/5/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was intriguing and thought provoking. Believable characters worked together to solve an ages old mystery while racing against the bad guys. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 jeff | 1/30/2013

    " I did not like it that much. I was looking forward to this book and it was a disappointment. The characters needed work, a lot of work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi Barth | 1/29/2013

    " Fast paced, with a very satisfying ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan Wood | 1/3/2013

    " Another Atlantis book. So many adventure series seem to start out this way. It doesn't do much to separate itself from the pack, but it's fun if you like that sort of thing. Which I do. Enjoyed it enough to pick up the sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aj Thomas | 11/2/2012

    " absolutely awesome read if your a fan of the likes of chris kuzneski your sure to love this book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 10/10/2012

    " This was an interesting tale in the Indiana Jones vein. The main characters are intriguing, the adventure gripping. I could have done with a little less of the "totally desirable professor" stuff, but I guess I have to accept the nod to Indy and another suspense hero, James Bond! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carlos Rafael | 8/25/2012

    " Can't say i didn't like it but it wasn't what i expected from the book, also the begin was a bit hard to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tamera | 4/1/2012

    " Another mindless knockoff of the DaVinci Code by a psuedonym writer who lives vicariously thru his sexist character that lacks depth. I understand now why this writer doesn't use his own name. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 7/1/2011

    " Better than I thought it would be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 6/28/2011

    " I did not like it that much. I was looking forward to this book and it was a disappointment. The characters needed work, a lot of work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 6/9/2011

    " I'm glad I bought this second hand and only paid £1 for it. It was mildly entertaining in a banal, no brain required way, but seriously was so unoriginal it's painful in places.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gordon | 6/4/2011

    " Very entertaining mystery. This guy does Dan Brown's style better than Dan Brown could ever dream of doing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Buhle | 3/31/2011

    " Phenomenol story telling. It has everything you need to make a page turner. And the sex scenes are masterfully crafted. Ten points for Chuck. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ellen | 2/24/2011

    " Didn't really hold my interest, even during the "exciting" parts. The trouble started when I had trouble believing that a guy who wears jean shorts is irresistible to women the world over, and just went downhill from there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 1/24/2011

    " I thought this book was good, but it was a DaVinci Code wanna be, same storyline different names. Still interesting though and a good read. Don't know if I want to commit to the next book that has the same character pursuing new adventures probably just like Angel & Demons. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 1/22/2011

    " It was okay. It could have been faster paced and I didn't feel connected to the characters or the treasures they were seeking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beleth | 12/5/2010

    " A grandes rasgos es un libro entretenido, con bastantes escenas de acción que hacen que casi parezca de tipo policiaco. Lo único que no me ha gustado en exceso es que tiene un final demasiado "religioso" para mi gusto. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 11/1/2010

    " The book jacket claims "If you liked the DaVinci Code you'll love The Atlantis Code." I'm approximately half way through and I definately agree. This book is awesome. I finished this book and have to say it stayed exciting right to the end. "
