Excellent reading. I read The Departure which I enjoyed so much that I bought the Atlantis series. Well worth it. A lot of thought and planning has gone into this series and it does not disappoint. It made me think beyond the here and now and seemed quite logical in the impact certain actions can have on us. Reflecting on history for a comparison and projecting into the future. this whole series gave me goose bumps at times. Well written and descriptive, I have the whole story running in my head as a movie. Loved it.
