A LOST CIVILIZATION. A DANGEROUS QUEST. A DEADLY SECRET. It's one of history's most enduring and controversial legends-the lost city of Atlantis. Archaeologist Nina Wilde is certain she's solved the riddle of its whereabouts-and with the help of reclusive billionaire Kristian Frost, his beautiful daughter, Kari, and ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, she's about to make the most important discovery in centuries. But not everyone wants them to succeed: a powerful and mysterious organization will stop at nothing to ensure that a secret submerged for 11,000 years never resurfaces. More than one would-be discoverer has already died in pursuit of Atlantis's secrets-including Nina's own parents. Failure isn't an option. From the streets of Manhattan to the Brazilian jungle, from a Tibetan mountaintop to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, Nina and Eddie will race against time-and follow a trail of danger and death to a revelation so explosive, it could destroy civilization forever.

    " Interesting story but felt plot could have been developed further "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 2/14/2014

    " In my defense, I really need to read these books sometimes as a cleanser for the heavier stuff that gets bogged down in my brain. These Indiana Jones adventure type stories are complete fluff, but entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/5/2014

    " The story was fun, but I'm not sure about the characters. Eddie Chase is obnoxious and Nina Wilde can be a bit annoying. (I read the audio book and the woman reading it didn't help much.) I did like that I wasn't able to predict every moment though. Another annoyance were the constant references to Indiana Jones. The first time it was mentioned, I thought it was funny. After that, it just got annoying. We get it. Indiana Jones is a movie and not real. It's funny that was a message so important to get across, yet one of the last scenes of the book I found to be just as unrealistic. But really, we don't read action/adventure books or watch action/adventure movies for the realism. We read them for the crazy adventures. "

    " Just coudldnt get in to this book at all. wasn't very easy to pick up. dunno why "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joevarian | 12/13/2013

    " Offending (some parts took place in Iran, and the writer seemed to against Iran. Such political words shouldn't be in the novel like this). And this is neither a historical nor a mythological novel. It's just an action novel. The mythology and the history was quite shallow. I don't like this books. "

    " I loved the book, the action scenes were great and there was never a dull moment. The writing style is quite simple but the story line made up for this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jess | 10/21/2013

    " Not great but not bad either. I couldn't help but fall for Eddie Chase though :) He is definitely my favorite character so far! "

    " Mindless entertaining action. I love taking complete breaks from reality in books likes this. Fast paced and always ends happily ever after. "

    " Good book and good series. "

    " I really wish I could do 1/2 star ratings on this. I would give it 3.5 stars. This was a good fun read. Lots of adventure and thrills. The amount of casualties and gun fights might turn some people off if they have too vivid of an imagination. I'm looking forward to the next Nine/Eddie adventure. "

    " A really good ride ... Sort of like watching an Indiana Jones movie ... Some really interesting plot devices and twist. I may have to see if there's a sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 12/4/2012

    " Not as good as the James Rollins books I've been on a tear reading lately. Actually, the destruction of archeological site after archeological site was annoying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 11/9/2012

    " This is the first in the Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase series. This story had lots of cliffhangers in it. It would make a good TV series or mini series. There are lots of dangerous situations and explosions like an action movie would have. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carissa | 7/2/2012

    " Didn't realize this was part of a series.. Enjoyed it but probably would have liked it more if I started from beginning. Incidentally I am starting from beginning. "

    " Great book full of action and a refreshing look at a legend "

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

    " good read plenty of action from start to finish ............unlike some books that either are to slow to get going or loose themselves in the middle or let you down in the end
    looking forward in reading more from Andy McDermott would recommend this book 100% "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridgett | 6/4/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 6/1/2011

    " God I love this. Actually pulled it out at the corner of a street while waiting for a light to change to keep reading towards the end. Completely absurd in every way, of course, but really that's sort of the point. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 2/8/2011

    " I had to put this down and move on. I may come back to it later, but right now it's the most uninteresting read. The characters are one dimension (card board) and it lacks suspense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christie | 2/7/2011

    " A great adventure along the lines of Matthew Reilly but McDermott does human relationships very well and that is the plot the kept me reading not just the search for Atlantis. Loved it "
