Review by dudara
The Hunt for Atlantis is as cliched as they come. It is a mish-mash of styles, genres and action sequences and the reader can easily predict every baddie action and every twist and turn.However, it is a rollicking good read, ideal for the beach or lazy evening by the fire. Dr Nina Wilde believes that she knows where Atlantis lies. After surviving an attempt on her life, she is engaged by the Frost Foundation to search for Atlantis. It is here that she meets Eddie Chase, an ex-SAS bodyguard, who has been hired by the Frosts to protect Nina. Together they will travel the world, facing constant danger, in order to discover the fabulous legacy of the Atlanteans.If you're looking for a fast-paced plot, with a dose of mythology and history and liberally laced with action scenes, then The Hunt for Atlantis is definitely for you. A surprisingly enjoyable story.

Summary: Dr Nina Wilde is in pursuit of the lost city of Atlantis, and when she finds support from a Norwegian philanthropist, she can finally perform the surveys she needs. Unfortunately, the Brotherhood of Selasphorus is out to stop her.This is the prequel to The Covenant of Genesis, and is approximately as believable as its successor. I quite enjoyed the mix of characters in this romp around the world, and the plot is certainly a page turner.Lots of fun.
