Another Page-to-Screen Recommendation

Into her bubbling cauldron of creativity, author Lanaia Lee decided to toss such tempting ingredients as fantasy, magic, romance, betrayal, revenge, and the eternal battle of good vs. evil. The result? Of Atlantis, a novel that’s very hard to put down once you start reading it.

Because I’m a confirmed movie addict, I always read a book with the question of how successful the story might be as a film in the back of my mind. And this one practically screams out “destined to be a movie” -– or a television mini-series. The longstanding struggle between its great hero, King Archimedes of Atlantis, and the equally powerful villain, Uric, generates more than enough suspense to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

Enhancing the plot are other colorful characters including:

Cheris -- a beautiful Queen who suffers through a loveless marriage to an abusive monarch

Persius -- Cheris’ champion, a man dedicated to protecting the Queen and her son

Janus -- a two-faced traitor who can’t wait to send Persius to his doom.

Bloody battle scenes also add to the excitement of this imaginative fantasy epic, as do the exotic settings which form the backdrop for its thrilling action.

Unfortunately, Hollywood usually takes a long time to make up its mind about which films to greenlight, so I hope you’ll buy Of Atlantis in its current book form. If you follow my advice, you’re in for a memorable journey back to the lost continent of Atlantis –- plus a few more recent surprises.
