Kurzbeschreibung

By NY Times Bestselling Author Bob Mayer (author of the bestselling Area 51 series)

#1 Kindle Science Fiction Bestseller on Atlantis

What if the Shadow that destroyed Atlantis 10,000 years ago, comes back to threaten our present world?

“Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice.” Thus Robert Frost warns the President of the Shadow at the beginning of Atlantis Gate, before departing on a classified mission on the first nuclear submarine, the USS Nautilus.

A war beyond time. An enemy beyond space. A thriller beyond your wildest dreams. Three areas on the Earth’s surface defy explanation: the Bermuda Triangle, the Devil’s Sea of Japan, and a small region of Cambodia. Inside these realms, planes have disappeared, ships have vanished, and, in Cambodia, an entire civilization has been lost leaving behind Angkor Wat.

In 480 BC, King Leonidas leads 300 Spartans to Thermopylae to try to delay the massive Persian Army. Known only to the King, they have an even more important mission: to escort and protect a powerful priestess to a mystical gate through which she can travel to help save the world. It’s a mission for which Leonidas will gladly sacrifice his own, and his men’s lives.

On the Nazca Plain in Chile, an old woman has been studying ancient lines in the ground for decades. Now she finally understands their terrifying message.

In the present, tremors deep inside the Earth threaten all civilizations. Eric Dane races against time to find the key to stopping this assault from the dark Shadow. He must reach across time to the Spartans and the priestess they escort to find the key to this defense.

And in doing so, he must travel to the Space Between, the boundary between our world, and the world of the Shadow.

If you enjoyed LOST, you’ll love this book and be amazed at the similarities in concept (although this book was published before Lost).

“Spell-binding! Will keep you on the edge of your seat. Call it techno-thriller, call it science fiction, call it just terrific story-telling.” Terry Brooks, #1 NY Times Bestselling author of the Shannara series and Star Wars Phantom Menace

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

NY Times bestselling author Bob Mayer has had over 50 books published. He is also the Co-Creator of Cool Gus Publishing, which does both eBooks and Print On Demand, so he has experience in both traditional and non-traditional publishing. His books have hit the NY Times, Publishers Weekly, Wall Street Journal and numerous other bestseller lists. Bob 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 four 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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Again a great novel 31. August 2002
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A good and exciting novel like its predecessors. The plot is set at different times and places as usual. What I liked best this time is the character of the Spartan King Leonidas who the author developed with care and understanding. Of course, again it is a fight between good and bad, of bad superpowers and "weak" men who can only defend themselves against an anonymous timeless enemy by using extraordinary ingenuity, which makes them stronger than they think they are. On the time level of 480 B.C. this is mirrored by Leonidas' self-denying bravery and the absolute wickedness of Xerxes.
I, myself, this novel has a finale that could be a worthy ending to the series. Sure, this ending is in no way final. The author left some questions unanswered, the Shadow is still somewhere, and this could lead to a sequel. A would have preferred a definite ending and I do not think another novel is really necessary. If this goes on we may grow tired of the subject and the first novels of the series would not deserve this fate

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interessant, aber geht weiter zu sagen... 22. Januar 2014
Von Janis
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich kaufte das Buch intuitiv, ohne zu wissen den Inhalt der vorherigen Geschichte. Die Geschichte ist interessant und wirklich spannend. Die Informations-Einschlüsse, die für einen erheblichen Teil des Buches ausmacht, sind interessant. Allerdings ist diese Information zu oft eingesetzt, ist unverhältnismäßig lange und manchmal gehört einfach nicht am Platz. Aber das ist doch lächerlich, wenn mann während Gesprach auf die Schwimmende Instrumentenplattform Ahana spricht, als würde sie eine Lesevortrag machen, wie Ozon aus Sauerstoff gebildet ist, wie dick ist die Ozonschicht, ohne zu fergessen das Jahr nennen, in dem ab, die Bedeutung der Ozonschicht würde realisiet (Seite 268). Es gibt viele solche Kleinigkeiten, die die positive Eindruck des Buches schädet.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Loved it! #4 in series & still going strong! 2. März 2003
Von Jackie Tortorella - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Book #4, thought to be the "finale" actually will be followed by two more books, accourding to info in the author's website.
Atlantis Gate is very full of action, and is an excellent continuation of #3, Devil's Sea, which was also a great read. I recommend starting at the beginning with Atlantis, then reading Burmuda Triange, then Devil's Sea, and then this one--Atlantis Gate.
As I stated in my review of Devil's Sea, the story is far fetched, but hey, this is science fiction! It's a magnificent journey into another realm. I was so captivated, I read it in one sitting.
The characterization is really quite good for a science fiction action novel. The main character--Dane--is immensely likeable, and he's surrounded by other interesting characters. The parallel story line between the distant past and present made the book even more fascinating to me. There's also plenty of scientific fact and theory interspersed for plausibility.
The book had a satisfying ending, but clearly left room for a sequel, which is forthcoming.
I won't try to give a synopsis of the story, since that's been done umpteen times. I will say that if you want a pure, hard science fiction novel that is completely believable, you might find some of the elements of this story a bit too much. But, if you're willing to open up your imagination and enjoy the ride, this book is thoroughly entertaining!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Book Review for "Atlantis Gate" by Greg Donegan 20. Januar 2003
Von Louis B. Fournier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Interested in remote viewing, Atlantis, time-travel, the lines on the Nazca plain, pyramids, and human existence? This may be a book for you. Ever wonder about the Valkyries, multiple dimensions, today's military? Then, this is certainly a book for you.
Greg Donegan's book explores, among other things, the relationships between modern warfare and ancient Greek citystates. Do you think the events of 9-11 were unique? Read about how Leonidas and his band of 300 Spartans held off a Persan invasion of 10,000 troups lead by Xerses in 480 B.C. and how that battle connects with today's events.
Part fiction, part fact, "Atlantis Gate" by Greg Donegan will appeal to those who normally may not read much fiction, but who are interested in the subject matter. Did I mention that "Greg Donegan" is not the author's real name? Maybe there's more to "Conspiracy Theory" than what meets the eye.
And, whatever happened to Amelia Earhart? And how was that connected with the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl? "Donegan" connects the dots and the reader versed in historic events will appreciate the effort and the story.
Well-written, quick-reading, and fascinating. Those are the best words to describe "Atlantis Gate". I'm on to other books by "Greg Donegan" (or whatever the author's real name is).

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad, but could be better 31. August 2002
Von Bill Bradford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Third part of a series; however, it relies too much on happenings in the first two books and does not stand well on its own. You can figure everything out, but recaps of the first two books would help a lot with the plot.

3.0 von 5 Sternen bought in an airport..... 23. August 2002
Von Harvey Ramos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I was waiting for a flight and i was bored so I purchased this book in one of the airport bookstores. It helped me get thru the plane ride, but I'm not sure I would have purchased or even finished this book otherwise.
For starters, I did not know that this was part of a series. I was confused in places because the author would put in references to people and events that were not previously mentioned. Some of these were important to the story, and i eventually figured them out, but it would have been easier and perhaps made more sense with prior knowledge. Also, a lot of the "science" in the fiction was really kind of a stretch and kind of hokey (end of the world countdown for example) in places. the characters didn't really have a lot of depth to them and a few people seemed to be introduced just to make a part of the plot feasable.
With that being said, the book moves at a pretty good pace, with something continuously going on, and the premise is actually not bad. It involves people from several different times (Greek and Persian warriors, Samurai, present day), trying to fight "the Shadow" from destroying the world. There is a mix of high-tech from the present, along with swords in spears in the Greek times and the wierd science of the shadow in "the space between".
All in all, this is not a masterpiece, but a quick and entertaining read while waiting for your flight...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Proof read please! 2. Oktober 2010
Von Garij - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've read many of Bob Mayer's books before and enjoyed them. I am half way through the Gate series and it's a good read BUT the proof reading is non-existent and it effects the readability of the text greatly in some places. I don't know if it's Mr. mayer's, fault or Amazon's bit it's not acceptable. It's so bad on occasions that it takes 3-4 read throughs to understand what's actually being written. I don't care that this is an ebook format, no-one paying for a book should have to accept that poor level of quality. You certainly wouldn't with a printed copy. Proof read before publishing please!
