The Hunt For Atlantis

The Hunt For Atlantis
Andy McDermott
Bantom Books, 2007
ISBN 978-0-553-59285-6

This is the first in a series of books that features archaelogist Nina Wilde and her bodyguard, cum boyfriend, Eddie Chase [ex English secret services agent].

Approached by billionaire Kristian Frost and his daughter, Kari, Nina Wilde is enticed to look for the lost city of Atlantis. It was during her parents search for the legendary city that they were killed, only Nina believes an avalanche took their lives!

Nina meets her new bodyguard, Eddie Chase, and the adventures begin.

The pair, along with Kari Frost, travel about the globe as they follow their clues to the city. All along the way they are met with resistance from a secret brotherhood that means to stop Frost. Believing the brotherhood are their enemies, Nina and Eddie do everything in their power to foil the attempts to stop their search.

High in the Tibetan mountains the couple learn the truth, Frost is seeking the lost city of Atlantis in an attempt to perfect an Atlantean breed of humans to take over the world. They intend to plant a virus that will take the lives of everyone who does not carry the Atlantean gene that has passed down through the thousands of years to a mere 14% of mankind. And suddenly, it's up to Nina and Eddie to protect mankind, and preserve the world as we know it!

What follows is a series of events that is swarthed in death and murder.

In the end, the couple beat the odds. And another adventure is about to take place, in the next book in the series, The Tomb of Hercules.

I give The Hunt For Atlantis a five star rating!
