What do you call it when an author sets up a premise and promptly destroys it with a stupid sentence? There must be a term for it. Like ‘shitass?'

For example:

“the scientists were normally able to conduct their explorations with no interference from the outside world.

Or this gem:

“It was not a place where anyone in his right mind would choose to be.

How about:

“The dart guns were designed to fire tranquilizers. But these were loaded with something else.

Ooooookkkkaaayyyy...... This is an action thriller that really didnt have enough action to thrill me.

I read the first book in this series where Eddie and Nina set out to find Atlantis. This seems to have gone so well and been so successful that our writer decided that a search for another mythical place was in order and would be a great idea.

Except of course that things don't go a lot differently in this book than they did in the first.

Well they don't go that differently except for the addition

Okay, so I know how I talked up this series after reading the 1st one. Granted, the genre is super-cliche but I thought Hunt for Atlantis was even good enough to get 5-stars. Why? Because that was an entertaining novel. McDermott apparently did not realize what made the first novel good because almost all of that gets lost here.

The Hercules stuff is good and this is where the book redeems itself a bit. But the problem is that it's not even really the main plot of the book! I won't get into the r

I picked up a copy of this over-the-top adventure novel at a book swap, and read it on a long plane trip. Suffice to say that it kept be sufficiently entertained that I hardly noticed the discomfort of the cramped seats, screaming babies, and overly-enthusiastic air conditioning on my budget airline.

This book is apparently a sequel to McDermott's THE HUNT FOR ATLANTIS, which I have not read. In that book, archeologist Nina Wilde and her bodyguard/boyfriend Eddie Chase uncover the lost world of t

I like the series. It seems very promising. I'm not too sure about my feelings for the MC's. This series reminds me somewhat of the hunters series by Chris Kuzneski.

Fun read… If you like James Bond or India Jones you’ll enjoy these books… This is book 2 and I highly recommend reading the book 1 first which is The Hunt for Atlantis. Though this book does stand alone, reading the first book will give the read a better understanding of the lead character's relationships.

The book was full of action, great character building, and mystery. However, I found it a little dull after reading book one: The Hunt For Atlantis
Most of "The Tomb of Hercules" gave me a sense of dejavue. I probably wouldn't read it again.

Shelves: didn-t-finish
Honestly, didn't finish this book, but am sending it and the rest of the series back to the library. I like the premise of the books, but one main character has begun to irritate me. So back they go. I have many more books on the shelf waiting to be read.
The second in this series, although I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first, I will go on to #3. Am enjoying the characters and the adventures. This one was a little bit over the top and I thought went on a little too long. Even though it took me awhile to read (I kept getting interrupted with library holds coming in!), I enjoyed it. Fun summer read!
