BURIED UNDER TWO MILES OF ICE.

This is the ultimate voyage, a journey to the center of time, as awe-inspiring as the dawn of man — and as inevitable as doomsday. This is RAISING ATLANTIS....

Jennifer Bateman, November 29, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Bateman)
U.S. Naval Support Force, Antarctica Lieutenant Commander Terrance Drake is leading the scientific team in a seismic exploration of the eastern side of the continent 1500 miles of frozen ice away from MuMurdo Station. He is currently on recon patrol when he desperately needs to take a leak, but has no bag that he would normally use to urinate in. Although he knows the Antarctic Treaty forbids even urinating on the ice, he figures who would see him let alone report this nitrogen painting of the snow violation. However, the ice breaks and soon Terrance plunges downward where he sees hundreds of humans preserved in time before the ice crumbled on to him

The U.S. military has found ancient ruins beneath Antarctica. General Yeats wants an archeological expert who can think out of the box about ancient astronauts so he selects his professionally ostracized adopted son Conrad as the right person for the job. Conrad says no until he learns Serena Serghetti is on the team. Conrad leaves immediately as he never has forgotten the beautiful Vatican linguist. Together they must find the key of a long lost civilization to shut down the doomsday machine that was inadvertently turned on.

RAISING ATLANTIS is an action-packed thriller that never slows down from the moment Terrence finishes urinating on the pristine snow until the exhilarating climax. The heart pumping story line contains intriguing twists including a paranormal feel as Conrad and Serena slowly learn the truth while the doomsday clock speedily ticks away. Fans will want to read Thomas Greanis's Antarctica caper to learn what the heroes learn perhaps too late.

doccod, August 24, 2006 (view all comments by doccod)
A suprisingly good action thriller for a first-time author. Thomas Greanias manages to put a mystical spin on the time-honored action-adventure novel that causes the reader to wonder about future world-shattering events and how they relate to historical cataclysms of the past. Along the way he introduces three larger than life, yet very human protagonists; people that draw the readers in, then set them up for one humongous rollercoaster ride to the edge of "First Time" and maybe the end of the world as we know it. There is good stuff here that makes the reader hungry for more.
