*****Updated August 2011*****
In 10,000 BC, the Shadow approaches and destroys the mighty empire of Atlantis, leaving not trace of it other than vague legend. Only a handful of survivors, priestesses and warriors survive, knowing they must pass their legacy down, so that the next time the Shadow comes, mankind will be better prepared.
Now it has come back. But it wants the entire planet. Across parallel dimensions, the Shadow has consumed Earth after Earth, but one Earth has repeatedly stopped it: ours.
The Shadow's latest assault on the planet left millions dead worldwide, a widening gap in the ozone layer, and a cloud of radioactive gas poisoning the atmosphere. Former Green Beret Eric Dane believes his visions are messages instructing him on how to save the world from complete annihilation. Now, Dane and the crew of a U.S. Navy research vessel embark on a dangers quest across space and time in a desperate gamble to change the fate of the earth...
If you enjoyed LOST, you’ll love this book and be amazed at the similarities in concept (although this book was published before Lost).
“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

About the Author
NY Times bestselling author Bob Mayer has had over 50 books published. He is also the Co-Creator of Cool Gus Publishing. His books have hit the NY Times, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and numerous other bestseller lists. The Jefferson Allegiance, released independently, reached #2 overall in sales. Bob Mayer grew up in the Bronx. After high school, he entered West Point where he learned about the history of our military and our country. During his four years at the Academy and later in the Infantry, Mayer questioned the idea of "mission over men." When he volunteered and passed selection for the Special Forces as a Green Beret, he felt more at ease where the men were more important than the mission. Mayer's obsession with mythology and his vast knowledge of the military and Special Forces, mixed with his strong desire to learn from history, is the foundation for his science fiction series Atlantis, Area 51 and Psychic Warrior. Mayer is a master at blending elements of truth into all of his thrillers, leaving the reader questioning what is real and what isn't. He took this same passion and created thrillers based in fact and riddled with possibilities. His unique background in the Special Forces gives the reader a sense of authenticity and creates a reality that makes the reader wonder where fact ends and fiction begins. In his historical fiction novels, Mayer blends actual events with fictional characters. He doesn't change history, but instead changes how history came into being. Mayer's military background, coupled with his deep desire to understand the past and how it affects our future, gives his writing a rich flavor not to be missed. Bob has presented for over a thousand organizations both in the United States and internationally. He has taught organizations ranging from Maui Writers, to Whidbey Island Writers, to San Diego State University, to the University of Georgia, to the Romance Writers of America National Convention, to Boston SWAT, the CIA, Fortune-500, the Royal Danish Navy Frogman Corps, Microsoft, Rotary, IT Teams in Silicon Valley and many others. He has also served as a Visiting Writer for NILA MFA program in Creative Writing. He has done interviews for the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Sports Illustrated, PBS, NPR, the Discovery Channel, the SyFy channel and local cable shows.
