I found this one a bit confusing...could be me.
Over all it was interesting, and very imaginative
The myth of Atlantis inspires the confident second novel in Frank's time-traveling romantic trilogy (after the popular Reflections in the Nile). Green-eyed Chloe Kingsley finds herself not in ancient Egypt, where the last novel ended, but on pre-classical Crete, inhabiting the body of an oracle headed for the doomed island of Aztlan. There she meets her soulmate and fellow time-traveler, Cheftu, now an Egyptian healer. Together, they experience a sensuous barbaric Minoan culture. Part Mary Renault, part Jacqueline Susann, Frank delights in re-imagining (sometimes pulpishly) lost rituals of love, power and religion, but she also finds moments of refreshing humor in the contrast between Chloe's modern sensibility and ancient manners. Longing for a cigarette or a bar of chocolate or a Diet Coke, Chloe is an easy heroine to sympathize with. Meanwhile, back in the 20th century, Chloe's nemesis now inhabits her body while Chloe's sister encounters ferocious magic in an unknown tomb.
Not bad, 2nd in the series, but I did like the first book better. I agree, this book can be confusing at times, it took me a long time to get the names straight and to understand who was who and what was going on. But, by the end I understood it all, but it was a bit disconcerting...
Very creative and imaginative historical perspective on the legend of the Atlantis culture. Frank weaves an entertaining story, while giving us a plausible explanation of what happened to Atlantis and the amazing technology and barbaric culture that could have existed at that time. Continued the love story of Chloe and Cheftu began in Reflections on the Nile and I am anxious to move on to Book 3...Sunrise on the Mediterranean.
