I really like it when authors write out of the box. The idea behind this book and watching it unfold really capture me. I liked that is wasn't something typically but really unique. A cross between Atlantians and ancient blood lines sparking powerful mafia families is quick to capture the reader and hold them.Say what! Atlantis. Mafia. Blood lines. All of this in one book sparking my curiosity till the end. Once a few chapters in the mafia really got me. I enjoyed reading about the powerful families and the front they were using. Now, when the author added Atlantis to the mix, I got as bit confused. It did take me a few more chapters and some back tracking to fully understand what the author is picturing. Though once I understood the concept, it because easier for me to read and love the book. What I enjoyed most about this book is the great outside thinking of it. I really adored the idea of the mafia crossing the lines of an ancient powerful past. It gave the story a much more fuller aspect to it. I was able to read and understand these characters better.With that being said I am very interested in seeing the way this series progresses. The ending definitely left me hanging for more. The plot, the characters and the amazing adventure of power enthralls the reader till the very end!
