Raves and Reviews

"A remarkable first novel. RAISING ATLANTIS grabs hold of you from the first page and pulls you into an astonishing world of scientific fact and fiction, suspense, and good old-fashioned adventure. Thomas Greanias is a superb writer who knows how to tell a tale with style and substance. Thoroughly entertaining.
Nelson DeMille, bestselling author of The General's Daughter, The Charm School and Night Fall

"RAISING ATLANTIS is a wonderfully honed cliff-hanger--an outrageous adventure with a wild dose of the supernatural. A thrill ride from start to finish."
Clive Cussler, bestselling author of Sahara and Lost City

"The mother of all Atlantis adventures! A damn good novel!"
James N. Frey, author of the widely taught How To Write A Damn Good Novel

"Your PhD in Adventure. RAISING ATLANTIS took me back to what inspired me to be an archaeologist."
Dr. William Schniedewind, Chairman of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, Professor of Biblical Studies, UCLA, and author of How The Bible Became A Book

"....a gripping page-turner; one of those books you end up staying up way too late reading and then are sorry the next morning when you can't get out of bed! I think it's a lot like The DaVinci Code, but I like the ending on this one better. The book takes you on an adventure to Antarctica in search for the lost city of Atlantis with a nun and an archaeologist who are dodging the military who want to cover up this amazing find. What they uncover is amazing and frightening and could unlock the secrets of how life began."
--Sandra Hughes, CBS News

"It's not hard to see why this techno-thriller has already been such a success: a gripping plot about the discovery of an island believed to be Atlantis--not in the Aegean but buried under the ice of the South Pole; some colorful characters, including a father-and-son team of archeologists (Are Harrison Ford and Sean Connery ready to do the film?); and some clean, no-nonsense writing that adds to the reading speed and suspense."
--Chicago Tribune
