Book Description

DATELINE: ATLANTIS is a contemporary fantasy featuring a female Indiana Jones who dives underwater and accidentally finds what just might be the lost world of Atlantis. After she and her photographer document fabulous pyramids under the Caribbean sea, they return to their newspaper in the Los Angeles area, only to have all their evidence stolen. The sea rolls back and reclaims the ruins, and their photographer is kidnapped. Someone doesn’t want the undersea world found.

The simple news assignment becomes more complicated with each turn and takes the Amaryllis Lang (pen name: Amy Quigley) on a whirlwind investigation to Chicago, Florida, Mexico, and the Bahamas.

All along, Amaryllis deals with a cold-case murder, a red-hot editor eager for a Pulitzer, two men who desire her love, deadly traps, and a chance to re-write history.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun adventure, with some great exploration scenes July 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
While Amaryllis is hardly a female Indiana Jones, and the story dives (pun intended) a little too much into the mystical depths of Atlantis for my tastes, I still found this to be a thoroughly satisfying read. Dateline: Atlantis is a bit predictable at times, as if Lynn Voedisch were conscious of trying to touch on all the standard elements of the genre, but it also contains enough surprises, genuine thrills, and awe-inspiring details to make it worth a read.

Voedisch wastes little time taking us into the subterranean and underwater ruins, painting a vivid picture of an ancient civilization lost as much to the waters as to time. The level of detail is just about perfect, offering enough to satisfy readers with an interest in archaeology, but not so much as to lose readers who are more interested in the mystery and adventure.

As I said, Amaryllis is hardly an Indiana Jones (or even a Robert Langdon), she is still an interesting heroine, and more than capable of carrying the story. The proverbial dogged reporter, she pairs professional diligence with personal enthusiasm for her quest. Gabriel is probably my favorite character in the novel, a man of secrets who clearly knows more about Atlantis than he's letting on, but who is everything you could ask for in a sidekick. As much as I disliked the man and his motives, Landon Hewitt makes for an interesting foil, a museum archaeologist who is willing to hide or destroy the truth of history to preserve the biblical mythology of his employers.

Like I said, the mystical element was a bit too heavy for my tastes, and I found some of the crystal scenes confusing, but the conflict between faith and history was strong enough to counter it. I wasn't quite sure where Voedisch was leading us, and precisely how she'd wrap up all of the elements, but the final scenes are just as satisfying as the initial explorations.

I LOVED this story. The World of Atlantis drew me in, and I had to know more about this mystery. So many people have tried to find it and failed. I was not surprised when people started dying, and witnesses of Atlantis started to go missing.. The main character, Amaryllis, Was so cool to read about. I felt like I was at a dig site, and there were hidden knives and traps ready to kill her at any time. I wanted to see the pictures of the underground pyramids and it opened up so many ideas in my head. Were there pyramids in more that one place? What about Pangea? Was North America close enough to Egypt that this is possible? The evidence being stolen was a mystery to me. Who wouldn't want to see the pictures? How deep is the ocean that it rolled back enough to cover up a pyramid? Does that mean that it is on a cycle and is sometimes it is more available to be seen, than other times? I liked that Amaryllis travelled all over the states, and even to Bahamas to solve the mystery. There is also the plot of her job as a reporter and the chance of getting an award. If given the chance I would definitely tell everyone and I would be happy to solve some of histories great mysteries. This is only the beginning. What else is there? What other ancient artifacts are hidden in that spot? What is near Atlantis? Are there new species that we didn't know about before?
This author not only got me this excited about the book, but she also included some what of a romance triangle. If Amaryllis survives and proves what she saw, then who will she pick? Will she ever know if they are in it for true love of fame?
I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own. This book is a keeper, and I can tell that i will be letting my mom and sisters read it! This would be a great book club book!

Format:Paperback
Lynn Voedisch in her new book, "Dateline: Atlantis" published by Fiction Studio Books introduces us to Amaryllis Lang.

From the back cover: Rebirth of an old world...or is it?

DATELINE: ATLANTIS is a contemporary fantasy featuring a female Indiana Jones who dives underwater and accidentally finds what just might be the lost world of Atlantis. After she and her photographer document fabulous pyramids under the Caribbean sea, they return to their newspaper in the Los Angeles area, only to have all their evidence stolen. The sea rolls back and reclaims the ruins, and their photographer is kidnapped. Someone doesn't want the undersea world found.

The simple news assignment becomes more complicated with each turn and takes the Amaryllis Lang (pen name: Amy Quigley) on a whirlwind investigation to Chicago, Florida, Mexico, and the Bahamas.

All along, Amaryllis deals with a cold-case murder, a red-hot editor eager for a Pulitzer, two men who desire her love, deadly traps, and a chance to re-write history.

Move over Indiana Jones you have competition and by a woman. A fabulous find, an underwater city. Once back on land all the evidence is stolen, there is a kidnapping and a murder all to keep the city a secret. Now Amaryllis is running around different countries on an investigation that will generate a lot of publicity or get her killed. "Dateline: Atlantis" is a wonderful thriller as the tension mounts as Amaryllis has no idea of what or who she is up against with this underwater city. "Dateline: Atlantis" is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. Ms. Voedisch has provided us with a great new character in Amaryllis Lang.
