Book Description:

A shocking discovery leads one scientist down a dangerous path in Brian Power’s compelling debut novel, Song of Atlantis.

When Amon Goro, master architect of Atlantis, discovers a way to harness the earth’s forces into an infinite source of clean energy, it seems destined to change civilization as we know it.

But 4,500 years later, Atlantis exploration team leader Palen Golendar is brutally captured by a Native American tribe in modern-day South Dakota—derailing any hope Atlantis held of utilizing its energy secrets.

Eight thousand years in the future, Native American anthropologist Gordon Tallbear and his team of highly skilled researchers stumble across a connection between the recent discovery of Golendar’s remains and an intricate cavern system deep in the mountains of Antarctica…a connection that finally reveals the Atlantean secret of perpetual energy.

While Tallbear and his team plan to recreate the energy source that will change the world, a wealthy group with deep ties to carbon-based fuel producers decides this newfound energy source must be destroyed—and they will stop at nothing to assassinate the researchers in order to bury what they know.

Can Tallbear’s newfound knowledge survive?

REVIEW:

Song of Atlantis will blow your mind! The author has an incredible imagination and has done massive amounts of research to bring us an incredibly detailed, entertaining and fascinating account of what the Atlanteans may have been like.

The author was able to successfully integrate the past and present using alternating chapters – slowly leading us to the links that would complete the story.

I was fascinated by the discoveries in Antarctica – the author used detailed and imaginative word pictures that seemed so realistic.

I really did enjoy the characters in the book, although Joanna and Tallbear were a bit too perfect (yeah, yeah, I’ll have to write my own book) (see page 322) but this really didn’t detract from the sophisticated storyline. The evil guys were pretty scary (reader beware).

Very similar to a Clive Cussler novel, anyone who loves to read action and adventure will not be able to put this book down.
