Kurt Austin è la nuova punta di diamante della Naval Underwater Marine Agency oggi diretta dal mitico Dirk Pitt. E insieme al fido Joe Zavala deve affrontare una serie di misteri apparentemente slegati tra loro ma che, se non risolti in tempo, potranno causare una catastrofe planetaria. Quale rapporto c'è tra il corpo di un aviatore d'inizio Novecento trovato congelato in un ghiacciaio e un elmo del XVI secolo? Chi o cosa sono le creature mostruose che massacrano i partecipanti a un reality show nelle isole Orcadi? Mentre a Kurt si avvicina una affascinante e temeraria fanciulla che potrebbe nascondere segreti pericolosi, la scoperta di una gigantesca cavità sul fondo dell'oceano, denominata la Città Perduta, sconvolge il mondo scientifico. Ma non basta. La diffusione di un'alga mutante particolarmente aggressiva e venefica diffonde terrore e imprevedibili sconvolgimenti nell'ecosistema marino.Tuttavia non si tratta solo di strani fenomeni naturali: Kurt e Joe scoprono infatti che c'è una grande multinazionale decisa a sfruttare la situazione per ottenere il controllo dei mari e, forse, anche della vita sulla Terra.

What a crazy adventure! From beginning to end, this novel brings intensity and action on a grand scale. It feels like an old-school serial, or even a video game; one breakneck scene after another. This book may have taken me three days to finish, but it was well worth it. It's easy to see why Clive C Leggi tutto
Umm... I have mixed feelings about this book. I liked it, because it's got some really good actions scenes, spec-ops types of situations, explosions, guns etc. It was fun. And the concepts brought up, such as immortality, the gorgonweed that would (view spoiler) [turn the Atlantic into a giant solid mass (hide spoiler)] , the vague Leggi tutto

I love Cussler books as they are a way of relaxing and not too heavy. A fun filled adventure through and through!
The novel Lost City by Clive Cussler, co-written by Paul Kemprecos, seemed long for a thriller. It was tied together by a unified evil plot, with a creepy villain assisted by strong, but cold-blooded crew of henchmen. The scenes involving a glacier in Switzerland were particularly appealing to me, b Leggi tutto
Lost City was a 3 star for me (or more like a 2.5). It was an incredibly easy read, chock full of action, and brimming with exotic locales. Unfortunately, it was also predictable, a little heavy on the ridiculousness scale, and very, very sexist. Frankly, I spent part of the book interested (the beg Leggi tutto
My favorite so far in the Kurt Austin series. This book weaves a historical mystery with a tale of the macabre and search for eternal youth. I loved the villains in this book! Not your typical special ops high tech witch hunt. Good old fashioned bad guys! As well written as any other Cussler novel.
Another typical installment in the NUMA series. While not my favourite of Cussler's five series', I do enjoy the NUMA books and this was no exception. One complaint would be that Austin and Zavala really didn't share a lot of time in this one, and their "bromance" is one of the things I like most ab Leggi tutto
”Orașul pierdut” este un thriller deosebit de captivant, în care aventura, misterul, suspansul, romantismul, binele și răul se împletesc într-un amestec fascinant. Tușa SF ridică și mai mult nivelul de adrenalină, întrucât te trec fiorii citind despre o formațiune misterioasă din adâncul oceanului Leggi tutto
I had never picked up a Clive Cussler book before but took a plane ride and business trip a few years ago and bought it in an airport bookstore. I was intrigued by the story, by the descriptions and by the craziness of it all. I didn't think I was a sci-fi reader but I really did enjoy this book. I
