One of the most intriguing series I have read to date

After reading the Area 51 Nightstalker series, I stayed reading The Area 51 saga.
I was carried away into this vast world of myths and legends that were not as they seem our so I thought. I was riveted from the first book Area 51 and drawn through every epic mythological, (religious), and legendary relic of history and time.
Every, story or legend has some basis in fact. This saga explores the possibilities off the origins off these myths and l...more
It would be nice to give this only 2 1/2 starts but I'll let it be bumped up to three. An interesting Si-Fi concept which was a quick read, but there are just gapping plot holes that are never addressed, which if you put any thought into the universe being presented to you tears the who thing apart. (which I guess maybe could be addressed one of the other numerous books in this series, it however doesn't change the fact that this book doesn't stand on its own and does not inspire one to read any...more
The ninth book of the Area 51 series. With the completion of the main storyline ending with book seven of the series, this book is really a self-contained novel that tells the real story of the character Dr Duncan. It begins on another planet, and continues on Earth beginning first with the Airlia civilization at Atlantis, and ends with the events that take place in England during the time of King Aurthur that were partially described in the earlier books of the series. Definitely an enjoyable r...more
I thought the concept behind the story was great - two different alien races fighting it out on planet earth w/o humans knowing about it. The plot ties in the city of Atlantis, King Arthur and the Knight of the Round Table, Merlin, etc. I haven't read a science fiction story in a while, so it was a nice change of pace. That said, the story concept was probably better than the actual story, but a fun/easy read anyway.

I really enjoyed this book. Being the 9Th in the Area 51 series, it tied up loose ends. It takes you through the lives of the central characters Donnchadh and Gwalcmai from the beginning from them leaving the own planet and arriving on Earth.

Loved it, although starting with book #9 probably wasn't a good idea; I hope it doesn't ruin the previous 8 books for me now that I want to read them. All credit goes to my brother Michael-Andrew for letting me borrow the book.
An interesting book. At times the plot was drawn out. But, a fascinating mix of sci-fi, history, literature, and religion. Helped me to make sense of the previous Area 51 book I read.
Thomas Roth
Enjoyed very much as this connected a lot of the dots for me. This series has been very enjoyable. Quite a concept.
Terrific series. Loved the way he tied events and places around the world together.
