Order It From Amazon
Atlantis is one of the most explored myths of all time. The thrill of supernatural adventure never ceases. On the island of Santorini, Greece, Nicholas Pedrosa faces the job opportunity of a lifetime. The possibility of discovering the great lost city keeps the reader turning to the next page. Marcus Huxley, his boss, has his team working at all hours at the Minoan site with the dream of finding an otherworldly discovery.
This novel entices the reader with vivid literary imagery. Descriptions of the Mediterranean sea as the breeze caresses the characters faces, the frescoes and their similarity to the archaeologists at the beach, and the incorporation of modern identity into ancient customs.
In the field of archaeology, there are always professionals who will try and warp the minds of their colleagues into seeing a site the way they do. Unfortunately, biases exist even though the field is intended to be objective. Travels in Elysium does a fantastic job at showing the internal conflicts in archaeological excavations while portraying the mysticism of island culture. It will have you tumbling off the cliff with Huxley out of excitement. From murder to mystery, mirages to reality Azuski has included it all.
