I’ve had a bit of a busy week with reading 🙂
I started reading ATLANTIS.
“What if the Shadow that destroyed Atlantis 10,000 years ago, comes back to threaten our present world?
A war beyond time. An enemy beyond space. A thriller beyond your wildest dreams. Three areas on the Earth’s surface defy explanation: the Bermuda Triangle, the Devil’s Sea of Japan, and a small region of Cambodia. Inside these realms, planes have disappeared, ships have vanished, and, in Cambodia, an entire civilization has been lost leaving behind Angkor Wat.
In 1945, Training Flight 19 disappears in the Bermuda Triangle.
In 1963, the USS Thresher, a nuclear submarine, is lost under unusual circumstances, part of a secret government investigation into mysterious gates.
Near the end of the Vietnam War, Green Beret Eric Dane led a team of operatives deep into Cambodia and encountered a strange fog near the legendary city of Angkor Kol Ker. His entire team disappears, attacked by strange creatures out of the fog. Only Dane survives to return.
Now a plane goes down. In the same area Dane lost his team. He’s called back. To find out who is the darkness behind these gates to our planet. What does this Shadow force want? It is a threat that will take on the world’s greatest military forces and defeat them. A power that will overwhelm our science and technology. A merciless enemy that will lead Dane—and the whole planet—into the final desperate battle for survival.”
This was an interesting book. It took a while for me to get into it as it did not introduce the main characters until a few chapters in. It set the scene well with exploring the history of missing planes and boats. It also set out the obsession of wanting to find out what is going on. It was a bit more science fiction based than I thought it would be, but I enjoyed it.
The book is part of a series and I am intrigued to know how it continues as it left an interesting option at the end of the book.
Overall a good and exciting read that kept me interested through to the end.
