Product Description

About the Author

NY Times bestselling author Bob Mayer has had over 50 books published. He has sold over four million books, and is in demand as a team-building, life-changing, and leadership speaker and consultant for his Who Dares Wins: The Green Beret Way concept, which he translated into Write It Forward: a holistic program teaching writers how to be authors. He is also the Co-Creator of Cool Gus Publishing. 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 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. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but misleading title. 3 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the blog and some of the reviews and thought that it sounded like a good story - i'm a sucker for anchient cities, worlds end etc. Well, it is a good story, and very well written by someone who obviously knows how to put a story together and has a very good understanding of language. The story builds very well, the passage of time used to build the storyline and the main characters. However, I finished the book very dissapointed. You see, it's not a complete story, just the first installment of what appears to be a 4 or 5 book marathon. As such, nothing gets resolved and it all seems so rushed towards the end. As for Atlantis which is, afterall, the title of the book, well, there is the odd mention of an old island civilisation, but that's all. So, a decent story which is really only the first chapter. Will I read any more of the series? - the jury is out at the minute, but if I do I will want the storyline to develop alot more than it did in this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Atlantis 17 Sep 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book in Greg Donegan's Atlantis series, and is far and away the best of the four he has so far written. The plot is a sci-fi/military thriller with a fairly original plot about a group of aliens called 'The Shadows' who try to destroy the planet by invading it. The aliens have been capturing humans for decades and experimenting on them, but this come later on in the series.
The plot centres around ex-CIA operative Eric Dane and a shadowy American agency fighting the aliens through the warp holes that they generate to come to the planet.
This is the best of the series, and has a fairly interesting plot, with quite a lot of fighting and enough sci-fi to keep readers happy. However the sub plot about Dane's friend being kidnapped by another set of aliens and being used as a messenger, and the frequent flashbacks to ancient history which get worse as the series goes on, makes the book quite unbearable at times.
So,pick up the book for a quick thrill, but don't expect a Tom Clancy or Robert Ludlum intricateplot from this book

5.0 out of 5 stars this is one DAMN GOOD book!!!!!! 19 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book in one night, I just couldn't put it down. Donegan put quite a twist on the whole "Atlantis" and "Bermuda Triangle" deal. But, what got me was the "special gift" that the lead character, Dane had. That was awesome. This is one of my all time favorite books by him, along with the Area 51 series(which was written under a different pen name, Robert Doherty). The only thing that I didn't like about the book was that it was too damn short. I can't wait for the sequel to come out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Atlantis 7 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this shortly after getting my Kindle but only recently read it
It's a bit X-Files/Lost and every other derivative Sci Fi genre you can think about
A perfectly acceptable way to waste a few winter evening but by no manner of means great or epic fiction

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea poorly executed 26 Mar 2012
By Alan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ive just finished reading all the books in this series, and the overall idea is a sound one and was, I thought, the basis for a good story. The problem is, the author(s) really are a few ranks below world class, allow me to elaborate. They CONSTANTLY repeat things as if they are trying to annoy you, the amount of times I've had the super-kamiokande explained to me beggars belief, and that is just one of dozens of examples of these guys constantly re-hashing material throughout every book in this saga. There are almost innumerate typos, sometimes the authors seem to forget exactly which character it is they are talking about and just randomly interject names incorrectly, and once or twice I've found the story hard to follow and had to "gloss over" an area or two to be able to continue because the cohesiveness of the chapter just breaks down into garbage.

As indicated, the story has great potential, and I am somewhat dissatisfied that it was executed so shoddily. Yes, I read it through to the end, but that's just because I am a curious creature. If there was a proof reader involved in this venture, he or she needs flogging.

I gave it three stars because I am kind, really, I'd just like my money back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun page-turner starring Arnold and Jesse 7 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is exciting and well-written science fiction with a few special twists that make it completely original. I really liked the mythical, jungle setting with seems to have some aspects of truth which makes the story that much more intriguing. The story has non-stop action and suspense. I pictured it as a movie starring Arnold and Jesse (Predator). That makes for one fun page-turner.

I can across Bob Mayer's books by accident, and now I cannot wait to read everyone on them!
Brilliantly written, the only problem is I read them faster than he can write them! More please!
