The Atlanteans: A Contemporary Novelby Dorothy Cora Moore
Synopses & Reviews
Do you remember advanced Atlantis ¾ an island continent, ruled by magicians, and destroyed by nature some 25,000 years ago?
Could you be one of the Atlanteans?
The Atlanteans opens in America, spirals back to an advanced Atlantis at its demise, and then returns to America where events and characters from these two civilizations come together.
Teddy Townsend, a lawyer, and Ryan Stuart, a prominent neurosurgeon, are best friends in their mid-thirties. Their lifelong friendship began at Harvard, but has its roots in their ancient past, which they are soon to learn more about.
As the story opens, Teddy and Ryan enter Teddy's 52-foot racing yacht in the Miami-Nassau Regatta. A storm overtakes them, and one of the ancient Atlantean magicians, Polaris, appears.
Polaris gives them a prophetic warning, and takes Teddy and Ryan back in time to show them who they were, and the truth of what happened the last few weeks of Atlantis' existence.
When their weatherworn yacht returns to Miami, they wonder why they experienced all this. During their flight home they see pictured on the front page of the Miami newspaper the Atlantean magician, Merak, responsible for the demise of Atlantis. He is walking up the steps of the White House with the President.
Can Teddy Townsend and Ryan Stuart stop Merak before another enchanted land, America, suffers the same fate as Atlantis, and is lost forevermore?
