Viking warriors, Green Berets, priestesses and CIA agents populate this second installment of the Atlantis series. The evil forces that legend says destroyed Atlantis have returned to wreak havoc on the modern world; their first assault: consists of firing a nuclear missile from the waters of the Bermuda Triangle into a major fault in the Atlantic Ocean. America reacts by sending ex-Green Beret Eric Dane and a team of experts on an underwater mission to confront the Dark Ones. Meanwhile, Ragnarok, a first-century Viking, helps the priestess Tam Nok search for a powerful weapon to defeat the wicked Valkyries and is drawn into a parallel universe with Dane. Told in alternating chapters, the two stories converge for an unsatisfying conclusion in an underwater graveyard for ships, planes and other craft that have disappeared into the depths of the Bermuda Triangle over the centuries. The contemporary side of this militaristic SF tale is packed with long, technical digressions that slow the novel's pace, but the chapters on Ragnarok and Tam Nok's quest contain solid dialogue and evocative descriptions of fantastical enemies and ancient lands. Donegan's battle scenes will keep action readers happy, but those who prefer more well-rounded characters will be disappointed. (June)

I still dont care! :-)
I am having a ball reading this series...so far. The action never stops or stalls. You continously go from one event to another...almost seamlessly.
I particularly liked the two time frame perspectives. How the "Shadow" was handled by the Vikings and Priestess's in the 1st century...to how Dane and Sin Fen handle them today.
Donegan told the story from a Viking ship captain's perspective, and he was everything you'd expect/want a Viking to be. Six and half feet tall, willing to brave even the unknown demons from the shadow. Him and Tam Nok (the preistess) Journey across the oceans and to Stonehenge was fascinating. Battling forces of the Shadow the entire way.
Then, Donegan ties the Viking and the Priestess he was traveling with, to the present set of circumstances in a completely imaginative and original way. Almost, as if they are happening simultaneously. Ragnarok (the viking) and Tam Nok (the priestess) journey and adventure is given in one chapter. Dane and Sin Fen's adventure and journey given in the next. 900 A.D. then the present. You could empathize with the characters in each story. They were both dealing with the Shadow, just with differing technologies and a different time in history. It was great.
I do have one caveat, that has the potential to be annoying if not addressed. Things just seem to happen. Out of nowhere, for no reason, then vanish. No explanation, no reason...and are never mentioned again.Read more ›
My biggest problem with the first book was that Donegan did not even make a pretense of fitting his story within any sort of history on this planet - something these books generally do, at least to some degree. And in this book he has the same problems. His Khmer history is still off, as it was in the first book. He has Angkor Wat being built around 998 CE or before that. Wrong. It was built by Suryavarman II (who did not even begin his rule until 1113 CE). He has one character in 999 CE being from Angkor Thom, which was not started until the time of Jayavarman VII (between 1181 and 1218 CE). He also does the oldest trick in the book: high runes. Donegan says: "Modern scholars aren't certain where or how it originated, but they have noted some similarities between Viking runes and the runes used by other ancient cultures." The runic language, however, was created by the Teutonic peoples. The Teutonic Runic system was used by the Goths, the Visigoths, the Vandals and many other Teutonic Tribes of the era. The Visigoths are the ones that sacked Rome and thus it was also carried into areas like Gaul. The Norse/Vikings of the tenth through the twelfth centuries also used this type of languag as did the Saxons who invaded the isle of Great Britain.Read more ›
The Shadows send nuclear missiles that strike the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where two tectonic plates lie. Apparently, the Shadows plan to cause pandemic destruction to a degree that the planet has not felt since the collapse of Atlantis in 10,000 BC. Dane and Fen must find the long lost "shield" that will protect the planet if humanity is to survive an enemy that wants to end mankind's reign.
ATLANTIS: BERMUDA TRIANGLE is an exciting military science fiction work that will please fans of non-stop action thrillers. Though Greg Donegan adds a little bit of this mythology and that myth into his mix, the tale remains entertainingly fun as long as the reader allows his or her credibility to be parked on the sidelines. Action, action, and more action is the theme of this plot as Dane and his forces try to stop an enemy whose long term strategic vision (thousands of years) is the mass destruction of Homo sapiens.
