THE ATLANTEAN LEGACY
As I read Paula Bates’ novel, The
Atlantean Legacy, it resonated deep within me. I could feel
the beauty of what is currently unfolding on many levels. The energy of
her words creates a visual image within the mind of the reader which
gives form to the cellular memory held deep within. As this energy
awakens and takes form within the mind, we bring to conscious awareness
that which has been unconscious, thus allowing us to now communicate
and share with one another through a common experience – the book. As
when Avatar came out and we were able to remember the beauty of our
Universal Connection through the visual representation of the
ceremonies and celebrations, The Atlantean Legacy will offer the same
opportunity for connection, both inside and out.

What a delightful, sensual, colorful, fun, exciting
tale Ms. Bates has woven here. The descriptions of her Atlantis are
masterfully vivid, and I so enjoyed getting to know Akana. The book
gave me chills a couple of times...it would make a great movie with
action and depth – all the romance and spiritual phenomenon that women
love especially. Makes me want to visit Atlantis myself and visit the
Spiral of Space and Time.
The book is full of light and love. It is an ideal
feel-good novel with mysterious twists and visions that probably do
come from some other world in space and time.

“A gripping story about a place wreathed in myth,
mystery and debate, the fabled Atlantis comes alive in this tale of
adventure, destiny, and human longing. Told through the eyes a young
woman who inhabits this long-ago world, The Atlantean Legacy
brings life and substance to a place I have always wondered and dreamed
about. The descriptions of Atlantis, its inhabitants, and the events in
this story held my rapt attention and fired my imagination. Exquisitely
told, beautifully described, this book will hold a favorite place on my
list of books read! I look forward to more stories from Paula Bates!”

The story pulled me in and I didn’t want to leave.
So much information on Atlantis and so much familiarity. I wonder how
many other people will feel the closeness to The Atlantean
Legacy. More please, tell us more! When is the next book

I found Atlantean Legacy
written by Paula Bates difficult to put down once I began reading.
Bates’ development of each character created a personal relationship
between them and the reader. I found myself wrapped up in Akana’s life
within the story and I found myself sharing the same emotions she felt.
Bates skillfully developed a believable setting for Atlantis within her
book. Through her energetic writing, I found myself living in this
world. Bates’ thorough research of the mythical Atlantis aided her in
developing the first book in a series which will be eagerly awaited by

In THE ATLANTEAN LEGACY, author Paula
Bates speculates about what might have happened to the legendary city of
Atlantis (or at least what caused it to sink into the ocean). The story is told
in such rich, believable detail that it’s easy to believe that this city might
have once existed.
THE ATLANTEAN LEGACY drives home the point that we must look to the past
and learn from it or be destined to make the same mistakes over and over.
Instead, the government of Atlantis refuses to acknowledge its role in the
breakdown of the system, which eventually results in its destruction. Perfect
peace seems to be the answer that the author seeks to get across—a beautiful
sentiment that’s made impossible by the existence of those who want anything
but peace (whoever you perceive them to be).
Beautifully written, with only minimal preaching, THE ATLANTEAN LEGACY comes alive to capture your rapt
attention as you follow the life of Akana – a strong and beautiful woman who
changes the course of history. I did not expect to be in tears by the end of
this book, but it touched my heart enough to make me feel the loss of a great
city and its people.
If you’re as fascinated by the mysterious city of
Atlantis as I am, THE ATLANTEAN LEGACY is
