This is one of many books that have sprung up since the success of Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code." I think in this case the author has also read "Angels and Demons" by the same author. He has then taken themes from both books to "create" his own. Thus we have good looking male scholar/adventurer, expert at cracking codes, running around a capital city (in this case Washington D.C rather than Paris or Rome) with an equally good looking and equally intelligent female helper, searching for an equa ...more

I loved this book! It was so intricate and I became engulfed in the plot almost immediately. However, this is the second book in a series but I did not read the first book and I still completely understood the storyline. I loved the action and how conflicted I felt as the reader being scared of Conrad but also rooting for him at the same time. I loved how narrowly he escaped from the police but how he always seemed to get out of it and make a quick getaway. I found it so interesting how easy it ...more

Great read, beginning to end.

Whereas I gave the previous book in this trilogy 4 stars with caveats, this one has fully earned all four stars. This book was far more entertaining than its predecessor by leaps and bounds. The writing was better, the pacing was WAY better and the overall story was even more so.

That being said, it is not perfect. As you read this book, each page is packed with information and intrigue but if you look back on it after you finish it, you realize just how over the top

Following on from Raising Atlantis, The Atlantis Prophecy sees Conrad Yeats racing around Washington DC following up leads from the past in an attempt to derail a conspiracy dating back to the formation of the United States and George Washington himself. In a way it reminds me of the Nicholas Cage movie National Treasure, it has a similar level of action and adventure with a similar romp through famous Washington monuments.

In terms of the book itself, the author has certainly refined his writin

I personally wasn't impressed with the first book I've read by this author. Between Dan Brown and others writing on this type of topic, Mr. Greanias' work was windy with plot twists without preamble--they just all of a sudden happened without smooth transitions. The hero and heroine were stunning, of course, and they managed to just be beyond the bad guys' grasp several times. There was a secret treasure that several were looking for at the same time, which was basically the plot. Greanias IS pr ...more

As usual, Thomas Greanias has succeeded in writing another page turning adventure thriller novel. This installment of the series keeps the reader on the edge of their seat the entire time they are reading. If you love a touch of sci-fi-based-history, barely there (almost non-existent) romance, and lots of action, then this book is for you!
I would suggest this book to anyone above the age of 16.

When I chose this to read, I didn’t realize that it was the second in a series. It kept referring back to things that happened in the first book, but without enough explanation to understand it. The relationship between the main characters is frustrating and not very believable. The book ended with a “get ready for the next book” feeling. I didn’t like it enough to pick up the first one, let alone the last.

This has adventure, intrigue, action, suspense, misdirection, information?, emotions and a few twists and turns. Great for the lazy-day read or just for passing time. Written well, time consuming and attention grabbing. It's like Tomb Raider meets National Treasure. (Maybe a little Indiana Jones thrown in too.) Enjoy! ...more

It was ok. I think I expected more out of it. It is the second book in a series and it may have made more sense if I had read the first book. I don’t think I will read anymore of them though

It’s so similar to Dan Brown that I’d consider a law suit if I were the latter.

Let me first off begin by saying I'm not a huge fan of these types of books so keep that in mind when reading my review. I loved 'The DaVinci Code,' but I recently finished a book of the same genre by Steve Berry. I will say I enjoyed Thomas Greanias much more than Steve Berry. However, it just didn't do it for me.


1) This book was an easy read, very fast moving.
2) I did enjoy Mr. Greanias' writing style.

A fascinating adventure to discover an ancient prophecy involving America's past...

I read & thoroughly enjoyed the prequel to this novel, Raising Atlantis. Thomas Greanias' story & characters had me hooked. I am a huge fan of ancient mysteries, so much so that I also write them. The Atlantis Prophecy delivers for anyone who enjoys stories where modern-day characters struggle against nearly insurmountable odds to uncover ancient secrets hidden in, and woven amongst, well-known places and monument

While I didn't win this in a Goodreads giveaway, Greanias sent a signed ARC copy by mistake after I won another one of his novels. It sounded interesting, so I took the first out of the library and it was great.

This one was good but it wasn't as good. There was more confusion and it felt a lot more like I was reading a mimic of Dan Brown. It probably doesn't help I read one of Brown's books before this.

In this second Conrad Yeats novel, it's 4 years after the Atlantis discovery in Antarctica an

The Roman Catholic church, Freemasonry, the Founding Fathers and the ancient lost continent of Atlantis are settings and groups frequently used as key elements in modern thrillers. Apparently, author Thomas Greanias figured why not throw them all into the mix in his first novel, 2005's Raising Atlantis.

Archaeologist Conrad Yeats and Australian linguist (and nun) Serena Serghetti explored evidence of the lost continent found in the inhospitable Antarctic. The sequel, The Atlantis Prophecy, picks

Starts with an interesting story about the death of George Washington.

Then there’s a lot of running around Washington DC as Yeats (or Stargazer) uses astronomical alignments, signs and coordinates left by his father along with clues left by the Masons to find Washington’s celestial globe that supposedly conceals dangerous information about America’s history. Meanwhile a secret centuries-old organization, the Alignment, is trying to stop him from completing their plan to quietly take over America

Raising Atlantis from the antarctic ice was just a warm-up. In The Atlantis Prophecy, Thomas Greanias delivers the end-all be-all of secret society conspiracy thrillers. What's the connection between the United States Capitol and ancient Atlantis? You'll have to read it to believe, but once you probably will.

The Atlantis Prophecy (TAP) gives us plenty of historical Church v. Masons mystery, but doesn't give short shrift to the action. But where this story really succeeds is in its cha

So far I am not thinking too much of this series. A bit of excitement with a lot of potential, however I am feeling let down. The author is all over the place with theories and whatever is convenient to pull the story along at the time. Conrad Yeats who is disgraced as a professional always manages to know someone or have a skill that will pull out every life threatening situation he's in, which is ever other chapter. Then there's Nun Serena who can fly a chopper, kick some butt, knows everythin ...more

NO SPOILERS!! I really liked the first book in this series - Raising Atlantis - so I was psyched about this one. This was a good read - no question about it - but some of the action seemed a bit might've been a little too easy for the characters to get in/out of troubled spots more than a few times. I loved the DC references as we live in that area and Mr. Greanias did a nice job of weaving in the geographic references. He also did a nice job of writing in some of the more famous ...more

Astro-archaeologist Conrad Yeats is back, with his nun friend known as Mother Earth, to save the United States of America. July 4, 2008 may see the end of the republic unless Yeats can stop an evil group known as the Alignment.
General, then President George Washington had his own problems with the Alignment. He left clues for the future "Stargazer" to discover and interpret.
Is Yeats the Stargazer that was predicted?

This one was exciting, though not as much so as the first book. Disappointingly, there were not many answers to the questions left hanging at the end of Raising Atlantis. Of course, new questions were added and I must admit, the the third book looks a little slim to have so many answers! I am looking forward to reading it though. Mostly, this book reminded me of the National Treasure movies. All in all, this was an entertaining, though not enlightening, sequel. ...more

The Atlantis Prophecy is a fun, fast read. That's the only good part.

The things that happen to the characters are ridiculous yet that works perfectly to the LOL dialogue. There was a lot of the one liner, cliched, speaking here. If that wasn't bad enough they said the other person's name every paragraph.

The reason the book was a fast read was because there was very little description. It told me everything.

This is the second in a three book apocalyptic series by this author. The first one started a search for Atlantis in Antarctica. This book, which takes place in the United States and other places is far more interesting than the first one. It broadens the conspiracy by a group that is planning to take over the Us and make it into a socialist country. Excellent timely story in light of what has been happening in reality in our country these past two years. It ends with a knowledge that there is m ...more
First of all, the title is deceptive. The book honestly has nothing to do with Atlantis, apart from the fact that the previous book in the series took place there and someone apparently wanted to make it blatantly obvious that it was a sequel.

I didn't mind the adventure-y, "George Washington hid stuff all over DC and now we have to find it" aspect of the story. But the overall plot was far too contrived to be enjoyable. Plus, the fact that the main character's love interest was a nun just annoy

It is a fast moving book. When I read this, I had no clue that it is second in the Conrad Yeats Adventure series. However, it has not much of a link with the first one, except that the first adventure is mentioned at few places in this book.

The adventure in this book is written about George Washington and Masonic background and some map which they left to be found in future.

I remember reading another book on similar background, so some of the historical stuff was not new for me.

Another page turner. I stayed up way too late reading this book. Truthfully, it was over my head a lot with dates and people - the author does a great job of weaving together political, historical, geographical and religious facts and fiction. Although I couldn't picture the landmarks in DC that he wrote around, it was still very interesting to me. A couple of the characters had potty-mouths, which I didn't appreciate. But overall, really good. The last page made me really want to read his third ...more

I'm a big fan of history-based thrillers and I bought this book in the airport in Cancun simply because I liked the blurb. It appeared just the right mix of history and adventure with a pinch of romance thrown in.

I never fall asleep with a book in my hands, but this one worked like magic. The intricate twists and turns of the plot, enemies turning into friends and vice-versa lulled me into the embrace of Morpheus when they should've kept me at the edge of my seat.

Intelligent plot and weak structure. This is the Atlantis prophecy. Another novel about the masons and how they plot the history of USA. The main event which is happened in the American Revolution Era is ambiguous enough to make all the novel ambiguous too. What happened between Washington and the traitors? Nobody knows... What is the role of Vatican exactly and why does church interest in this plot?? Nobody knows..
I cannot ignore the similarities between this novel and National Treasure movie.
