Bookmark and Share

I've read a book named The Hunt For Atlantis written by author Andy McDermott.

Well, the book revolves around an archeologist named Nina Wilde. She & her parents are extremely "obsessed"  with the legend of Atlantis. When her parents died, she continues their quest in search for Atlantis. 

Nina believes she knows where Atlantis is, but what she needs now is funding on the expedition.
But, when renowned billionaire Kristian Frost offers her the funding, without thinking twice, she accepted the offer and begin her expedition with Frost's daughter, Kari & ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, the hunt begins..

But, the leader of the shadowy Brotherhood of Selasphorus ; Giovanni Qobras wants to stop them and anyone who is searching for Atlantis. Nina and the team find themselves in a death race against time across the world from Iran to Brazil to Tibet in search for the lost city..

For containe=d within the city of Atlantis is a secret that could vanquish civilisations for ever...

My rating on the book :

One thing that I can say about this book ; Action Packed Till The End!

- a very thrilling & suspense plot that keeps your eyes glued to the book.

- simple yet interesting storyline.

- simple usage of vocab that let's the reader understand the scene of the story better.
Although he uses a few vulgar words.

Besides the vulgar words, the book is a great book and I recommend it to readers who love action & thriller books or movies! .

This book adoes have the capabilities if being made into a  movie though . 

Well, ' The Hunt For Atlantis ' is just one of his 6 books he had written.

The second book will the ' The Tomb of Hercules '
