Eons before the birth of the Roman Empire, there was a civilization dedicated to the sciences of earth, sea, and sky. In the City of Light lived people who made dark plans to lay waste to their uncivilized neighbors using the very power of the planet itself. As the great science of their time was brought to bear on the invading hordes, hell was set loose on Earth. And the civilization of Atlantis disappeared in a suicidal storm of fire and water... Now history threatens to repeat itself. The great weapon of the Ancients has been discovered in the South Pacific, and it is being deciphered by men of hatred who want to unleash hell on Earth once again. This time, it's up to the Major Jack Collins and the Event Group--comprised of the nation's most brilliant minds in the fields of science, philosophy, and the military to find the truth behind the world's greatest unsolved myths--to end the cycle of destruction. Meanwhile, the seas rise, the earth cracks, and entire cities crumble to dust as the evil plan mapped out thousands of years before begins to take shape...… (mer)

A weak 3 star for this installment. ( )

I am a big fan of this series. It's like reading Indiana Jones on speed. Lots of action, brilliant story lines and characters that keep on surprising you. I have already moved on to the next book. The brilliant part of these books is that they can be read as stand alone books. ( )

Now history threatens to repeat itself. The great weapon of the Ancients has been discovered in the South Pacific, and it is being deciphered by men of hatred who want to unleash hell on Earth once again. This time, it’s up to the Major Jack Collins and the Event Group—comprised of the nation’s most brilliant minds in the fields of science, philosophy, and the military to find the truth behind the world’s greatest unsolved myths—to end the cycle of destruction. Meanwhile, the seas rise, the earth cracks, and entire cities crumble to dust as the evil plan mapped out thousands of years before begins to take shape.

My Thoughts:

This is the third book in the Event Group series. We're back to lots of military action. Plus there's nefarious plotting and planning on the bad guys side, resulting in murder and mayhem. Lots going on. The ending is action packed and for the first time hints at the next book in line. This has thus far been a great series and I hope there will be many more to come. ( )

Ancients by David Lynn Golemon is the third book in his Events Group series. (The previous two Events Group novels are Event and Legend.) This time the Events Group is fighting an organization of mysterious people who trace their ancestry back to Atlantis. This secret organization of Atlanteans has discovered an ancient secret weapon and is using it in an attempt to take over the world.

If you enjoy action/adventure novels that have elements of science fiction, you are likely already reading this series. These novels are all about escapism and entertaining us. Of the three novels, however, this is the weakest. There seems to have been less care taken to follow history and any basis in science this time. The real star is the many armed conflicts with the bad guys. While Ancients does seem much more formulaic than the first two novels in the series, there is a surprise ending this time.

Character development, such as it is, relies on the reader having read the first Event Group novel, Event, since the main characters are developed to a much lesser degree in Legend. In Ancients it is just assumed you know the recurring main characters. It's not a good assumption to make. Additionally, the Atlanteans also lack development and believability as villains. If they already had the influence behind the scenes as written, they could have taken over without their secret weapon.

Setting aside the problems with this third Events Group novel, I would say that Ancients definitely passes the test as an entertaining novel. It would be a good airplane book.
Recommended (especially if you are following the series - not as a stand alone novel); http://shetreadssoftly.blogspot.com/

Another action packed adventure. Loved the opening chapters, and the Ryan action. ( )

For my father - who I lost this past year, I wish I had been as good to you as you were to me. Twenty-twenty hindsight can be a horrible and haunting thing. I can only hope and pray that you could see beyond my youth, see the man, and know in your heart I tried to be the best I could be.
For Roxie - a cousin, now a sister, for enduring the unendurable, the loss of a child, it should happen to no one in the entire world. My heart is broken for you.
For Maribeth - to the ghosts of youth, may we forever be haunted and happier for it.
