Synopsis of Book One

Of Atlantis is an epic fantasy novel based upon the king of Atlantis known as Archimedes. Archimedes is blessed with a source of untapped power – a power to heal and a power to destroy. His mother, Cheris, trusts this power, but his father, King Lionus fears it, making him suspicious and distrustful of the young prince, his only son.

In this first book of five, we follow King Lionus as he returns victorious from yet another war among the countries of the continent of Atlantis. He has been led to believe a false tale of his wife’s infidelity and turns against her, driving him slowly into debauchery and decline. Loyal to the end, Cheris, endures his alienation and resentment while nurturing her son, Archimedes, from his childhood until he is crowned king, marries and has children of his own. Cheris, accepts her celibate and loveless marriage out of a duty to her subjects and to Archimedes, her only child who she values more than life itself.

When Uric, a trusted advisor to King Lionus proves to be Archimedes’ archenemy, political turmoil ensues and the constant threat of war could tear Atlantis apart and bring devastation to mankind. Uric, too, has tremendous powers but those powers must be continually fed or he will die. He knows and covets the true strength of the enduring powers of Archimedes who has long suspected Uric’s evil tendencies. Eventually, Archimedes will come face to face with Uric’s demonic character – but who will survive to play instrumental roles in major historical events through the centures?
