Publisher's Summary

A thrill-seeking Harvard linguistics professor and an ultrasecret branch of the Catholic Church go head-to-head in a race to uncover the secrets of the lost city of Atlantis. The ruins of the technologically advanced, eerily enigmatic ancient civilization promise their discoverer fame, fortune, and power...but hold earth-shattering secrets about the origin of man. 

While world-famous linguist and archaeologist, Thomas Lourds, is shooting a film that dramatizes his flamboyant life and scientific achievements, satellites spot impossibly ancient ruins along the Spanish coast. Lourds knows exactly what it means: the Lost Continent of Atlantis has been found. The race is on, and Lourds' challengers will do anything to get there first. 

Whoever controls the Lost Continent will control the world.

Atlantis-Still lost.

I'm still trying to like this book. The story is the type I usually enjoy, but the performer is so lacking in skill it makes it difficult for me to enjoy the storyline. He doesn't really have to switch to a falsetto to do a woman's lines, it is so off-putting.

Great read

If you like Dan Brown this book will be right up your alley. Very detail oriented to make you feel like you’re living the story. This is the first book I have read of his and I will continue to read his work!

Couldn't listen to the narrator

I took a chance on this book even though many reviews warned about the narrator. They were correct. His breathy tone, terrible character accents, and complete lack of charm totally destroy any chance of keeping your attention on the story. I returned this book for a refund, which I've never done before...

Perfect Narrator for This Excellent Adventure

This is now one of my favorite books. There is nothing better than a great story with lots of action and solid characters, even though one really irritated me, but was believable. I seldom listen to a book a second time, but this is one I definitely will.

Don't waste your time

I was wrong to download this book thinking it'd be something like the Da Vinci code of uncovering historical mysteries and secret societies.
Yet here I am on chapter 12 with nothing but less than a handful of old artifacts that no one has yet to decipher and nothing but shallow characters running around the continent with no purpose.
Its pages are full of dull filler dialogue, much spouted by our male protagonist Lourds, and female companion Leslie, both forgetable and unremarkable. The author seems to know this and constantly feels the need to pump up his protagonist by contrasting him to his "dumb blonde" female companion who is half his age and naive and, I quote, "has much to learn".

I tried so hard to give the book a chance. but after 12 chapters, my brain feels like it's rotting and my eyes are hurting from rolling them so much.

Da Vanci Code Rip-Off

This book is terrible. Useless rip-off of the Da Vinci Code. Protagonist is even a Harvard professor! Don’t waste your time or money.

Good but could be better

The story was decent and the narrator tried hard with all the different accents but I got tired of listening to them and his pace was slow.

Narration is very poor

Maybe the book is ok. I say ok, certainly not great. But, the narration/performance is something I just can't get past. It is very poorly done and tough to listen to...

Awful.

I’m not sure if the person who wrote this has ever read a book. Awful dialogue.
