THE ATLANTEANS: A BRIEF SYNOPSIS
you remember advanced Atlantis - an island continent, ruled
by magicians, and destroyed by nature some 25,000 years ago?
Could you be one of the Atlanteans?
The story of The Atlanteans begins in
America, spirals back to Atlantis at its demise, and then
returns to America where events and characters from these
two civilizations come together.
Teddy Townsend and Ryan Stuart are best
friends in their mid-thirties. Their lifelong friendship began
at Harvard, but has its roots in their ancient past, which
they are soon to learn more about.
Teddy Townsend is a tall, blonde, athletic-looking
man, from a very wealthy Bostonian family. He is married,
with three children, and makes his career in law. Ryan Stuart
is a slender, quick, agile man, with keen blue eyes and dark
mahogany hair. Ryan comes from a large, poor Irish-Catholic
family on the south side of Chicago, has remained single all
his life, and is a prominent neurosurgeon.
As the story opens, Teddy and Ryan enter
Teddy’s 52-foot racing yacht in the Miami-Nassau Regatta.
A storm overtakes them, and one of the ancient Atlantean magicians,
Polaris, appears. Polaris takes them back in time to show
them who they were, and the truth of what happened the last
few weeks of Atlantis’ existence.
When their weatherworn yacht returns to
Miami, they wonder why they experienced all this. During their
flight home they see pictured on the front page of the Miami
newspaper the Atlantean magician, Merak, responsible for the
demise of Atlantis. He is walking up the steps of the White
House with the President.
After returning home to Chicago, Teddy
tries to find out who Merak now is, and what this menacing
black magician is up to. Can Teddy Townsend and Ryan Stuart
stop Merak before another enchanted land, America, suffers
the same fate as Atlantis, and is lost forevermore?
