“Spell-binding! Will keep you on the edge of your seat. Call it techno-thriller, call it science fiction, call it just terrific story-telling.” Terry Brooks, #1 NY Times Bestselling author of the Shannara series and Star Wars Phantom Menace
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 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.
If you enjoyed LOST, you’ll love this book and be amazed at the similarities in concept (although this book was published before Lost).
Note from the Author
I’ve always been fascinated by myths and legends. As I was writing about a modern myth, Area 51, I became fascinated by one of the oldest legends, Atlantis. Combining that with a fascination for the human mind as I was taking a course in physiology, with a focus on the brain, the idea for Atlantis started to develop. A book, The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind by Julian James also intrigued me. What were those parts of our brain that we weren’t consciously using doing?
The story evolved from there. The first book, Atlantis, was just the start. I believe the series grows more intriguing as I add in a past timeline in subsequent books, ranging from Vikings in the year 1000 AD; to a gladiator in the shadow of Vesuvius; Custer’s Last Stand; Pickett’s Charge; 300 Spartans at Thermopylae; etc.
And now, it seems things are coming full circle as I’m driving my Nightstalker series toward a intersection with the Atlantis series. It’s several books out, but its coming.

This is my first review for a Kindle ebook....I always read customer reviews in order to help me make my decisions. I hope this review is helpful. I enjoy all genres of literature and have been on a bit of a scifi kick. This novel had potential to be very interesting and suspenseful, but sadly fell quite short. It left many unanswered questions and lacked much detail in character depth/detail and plot. When I finished the novel, I was left wondering...will there be a sequel? If so, will it answer the questions that the original did not? In my opinion, Atlantis left the reader asking..."Who", "What" and "Why"?
This is an excellent book by Greg Donegan. I picked it up simply because it presented an interesting twist to the age-old "Atlantis" and "Bermuda Triangle" mysteries. The author weaves an intricate web of adventure and mayhem entangled with very believable sci-fi. From start to finish there is an incredible pace to the book. The main plot is very intriguing and it is really hard to put the book down. Simply because of the unique nature of the plot and the good finish it is a MUST READ! The only thing that begs a question is, "When is the sequel coming out?"
Ok, appears a lot of people are fans of the author(s) and series. I'm a newbie, and this will be my last. First 2/3 of the book was a good 3.5 stars, despite the fact that the author could never really present a good tangible description of the 'others'. Then wow, the last bit of the book was fractured, disjointed, called for something beyond a suspension of disbelief, and it almost seemed like it was in a hurry to end itself. Very disappointing.
Is there an alien connection with the lost city of Atlantis? How does the ancient city in Cambodia of Angkor Kel fit in? This exciting novel penned by the author of many names(Bob Mayer aka Greg Donegan here!) is the start of a new series and attempts to answer these questions, among many more about the world's mysteries. In the story, which begins with aircraft disappearing in the Bermuda Triangle in 1945 and then a strange alien encounter with a special forces unit despatched to Angkor Kel to recover a crashed reconnaissance aircraft occurs during the Vietnam war. Move forward to the present. Another plane, a privately-owned geological survey jet, crashes in the same spot. As communications are blacked out by strange signals, a special forces unit led by Eric Dane, survivor of the Vietnam encounter is sent there by the President. Not only that, signals are being bounced off satellites all round the globe which arer believed to be too advanced for human technology! Military action buffs and sci-fi fans will love this introductory novel to a new series, and to those who gave it one star, give it a chance. The prose is easy reading, the narrative fast-paced and the technologies are explained in the least amount of detail so as anybody can understand, which in this type of novel is fine. And this comes highly recommended.
About seven years ago, I was searching through the Sci-Fi section for a good "Alien Race vs. Human Race" plotline and happened to run across this book. I wasn't too sure about the whole Atlantis / Bermuda Triangle combination, but after reading the teaser on the back of the book, I decided that I'd give it a try.
I'm glad I did. It's probably one of the most well-written books I've read within the past decade. Robert Doherty (pseudonym for Bob Mayer) provides the reader with excellent character development from the main protagonist, Eric Dane, to the more enigmatic characters such as Foreman. He also weaves a fast-paced reading experience from page one until you close the book. When I sat down and began reading, I became so engrossed that I found myself 75 pages deep in almost no time at all. The action scenes feature diverse details and punchy pacing, but not so much that it becomes difficult to understand. I also enjoyed how Mr. Mayer seamlessly incorporated various "history lessons" into the book regarding the mythical city of Atlantis and other paranormal topics.
Overall this book comes together as a great piece of writing and a compelling, fast-paced read. To this day, it remains one of my favorite novels.
Here I am, 2/3 of the way through this book, and the story is just starting to maybe get off the ground... Maybe! I can' t wait anymore for it to finally get going! I'm pulling my hair out and my mind is starting to daydream as I read! Most good books I've read have a setup of the story and then you're off! At this point in the book, I'm begging the characters to get moving and get on with it. This is NOT suspense, it's utter frustration!
Bob Mayer (AKA Robert Doherty AKA Greg Donegan AKA Joe Dalton AKA Bob McGuire) is truly one of the more masterful newcomers to the sci-fi genre in many, many years. Intermingling sci-fi with edgy military techo-thriller action, Mayer weaves some of the most enjoyable and imaginative fiction I've ever read with each novel. I look forward to every book he writes and have yet to be disappointed. The Area 51 series has been one of the most exciting I've ever read and just when I thought it couldn't get any better, along came the Atlantis series, which is equally as good, if not better. With the Atlantis series, Mayer weaves a story of how the deadly elements of what was once thought to be ancient mythology collide with our modern militarized world, bringing to bear a frighteningly realistic, gruesome battle for world domination. A centuries-old war being fought between interdimensional foes has resurfaced in three of the Earth's most mysterious regions. A ship missing since WWII and a covert group of soldiers missing since the Vietnam War, both of which vanished in such regions, suddenly re-emerge from them as though not a day has passed. Only one man has been successful at returning from any of these mystical regions alive and after learning what really happened to Atlantis, he may be the only man who can save the world from a similar fate at the hands of the most deadly evil that has ever threatened it. The Atlantis series is truly some of the most inspired and imaginative fiction in recent history and masterfully mixes the sci-fi genre with modern age fiction, providing enough action to keep fans of even Tom Clancy glued. Mayer has truly authored some of the best page-turners in recent history. If you are intriqued by the Atlantis series, be sure not to miss his Area 51 series (under the Doherty pen name) and his military thrillers such as The Omega Missile, (Dalton pen name), The Gate (McGuire pen name) and Psychic Warrior (Doherty pen name). All are well worth picking up and will keep you enthralled from start to finish!Read more ›
