The plot in brief: The Shuar tribe in Ecuador are the purported guardians of an ancient treasure. Among the rumored artifacts hidden away somewhere in a secret cave is a metal library containing the legendary knowledge of Atlantis. Two archaeologists, Laney McPhearson and Jen Witt, are hoping to learn the truth about this treasure cache from their Shuar friends. But they're not the only ones seeking the treasure. And if the wrong men get their hands on those artifacts and all that ancient knowledge, it could mean the end of the world. Luckily, Laney's boyfriend, former Navy Seal Jake Rogan, and their friend, Henry Chandler, the wealthy and reclusive CEO of the Chandler Group, are determined to keep that from happening.
My thoughts: I bet you can guess what made me want to buy and read this one! How could I resist a story with archaeologists, gold artifacts, lost treasure, underwater caves, fallen angels, and the legend of Atlantis? And it turned out to be a fast-paced, action-filled adventure--one of those entertaining popcorn reads that's perfect for summer. I really liked all the main characters, especially Danny, the 13-year-old hacker who works with Henry. And I thought the angel mythology added a nice twist at the end. If they ever make a movie of this one, I'd totally go see it. And I think I'm going to have to buy the next book in this series to see what fun adventures are next for Laney, Jake, Jen and Henry and their friends.
